It’s not easy owning up to the notion that your parents or grandparents are not fully capable of taking care of themselves anymore. You realize that they are simply not safe at home alone. Yet, submitting them to a nursing home might seem slightly callous or too soon.
Why not consider an assisted living facility—where they have the freedom to live amongst their peers, but get the assistance they need to prolong their lives? There are many benefits, but here are the top two reasons for allowing a caring center to take care of your loved ones.
Senior Care When Needed
You can rest assured that your special someone has a high-level of attention when it comes to being taken care of. Many assisted living facilities will help with food preparation, social activities, housekeeping and laundry needs and much more.
Staff members can also assist with other daily living tasks such as dressing and bathing. Moreover, healthcare professionals can assist with checking vital signs, administering medication and taking physicals to ensure proper health is maintained.
A Level of Autonomy
Within an independent living community, members are able to strive with a certain level of self-sufficiency, while given the option of cherishing personal choice. They have the freedom and ability to choose which activities to attend, while also coordinating errands, such as shopping and dining out with family. Residents usually live in apartment-style lodging and gather in common areas with their neighbors.
At Longwood Plantation, we give your loved ones the choice of assisted and independent living alike. Our compassionate staff is here to coordinate events and provide daily assisted living services, such as housekeeping, to ensure residents live in comfort and contentment.
