During challenging times, we search for a sense of stability. Is that found in your home, where you have to take care of yourself? Or… is that found in a place where you are cared for and not alone?
Rest assured, in a senior living community, your supplies are taken care of for you. While your friends may be waiting in line at the grocery store for a re-stock on toilet paper or pasta, you know your community will not let you go without your day to day needs. Many communities have upped their meal service to cover all meals, at no additional fee for residents, simply because they care and want to ensure that their residents receive meals. Some communities have, or have begun, an in house store to allow for grocery purchases for residents while they shelter in their comfortable home.
With guidance from the CDC and CMS, senior living communities can provide a safe environment for seniors during a trying time. You will feel secure knowing that any visitors are screened prior to entering the community. Though they may not be able to visit, families can take comfort in knowing their loved ones are cared for. Staff assist in video chats between residents, families, and physicians. Residents are essential, and so are the staff. Common areas are cleaned multiple times per day. Your home will remain tidy with your housekeeping team, your food delicious by your chef, and your emergency calls answered by a 24/7 concierge.
Socialization, not Social Isolation
A daily dose of crossword competitions, live music down the halls, and doorstep cookie delivery are sure to keep your spirits high. When you are living in a senior living community, the lifestyle doesn’t stop because the world does- it simply modifies to still provide you with spiritual, emotional, and physical wellness… and more!
If safety, security, and a sense of belonging sound like a bright light in a gloomy time, call us at 979.774.9938 to learn how to make this idea your reality.
