The best senior living apartments offer a wide range of amenities and services to keep their residents happy and healthy. These amenities include transportation, housekeeping, landscaping, pools/spas, fitness centers, restaurant-style dining—even convenience stores on site! In this post, we’ll look at each type of amenity in more detail, so you know what to look for when choosing your senior living in Morganton, NC.
Transportation is an important part of any senior-friendly independent living community because it allows residents to move around and participate in their lives. Transportation can include:
- Transportation to and from the senior-friendly independent living community. This may be provided by a care team or via a bus service throughout the city.
- Transportation to doctors’ appointments, shopping, errands, entertainment venues, and other facilities. These services are usually paid for by the resident or covered by insurance. If not covered by private insurance, they will be at additional cost to you as a resident/family member/caregiver.
Housekeeping is a service that helps keep your home clean. It includes laundry, cleaning, and more. Housekeeping services can be provided by an outside company or a family member. Some senior living communities provide housekeeping services in-house as part of their fees. If you choose to hire an outside company to provide the service, they will come on a regular schedule to clean the common areas of your apartment (and sometimes private rooms) and do laundry for you if required by contract. They may also assist with minor repairs around the property, such as fixing leaky faucets or replacing burned-out light bulbs in the hallway lamps.
If you’re looking for flexibility, you may want to consider a community with indoor and outdoor pools. This facility allows residents to swim anytime, regardless of weather conditions. Other amenities include spa facilities that offer massages, saunas, and steam rooms; fitness centers with varied equipment types such as yoga mats or stationary bikes; hot tubs; game rooms with card tables, pool tables, and more; and outdoor grills so residents can cook out together!
Fitness centers are an ideal way to get the exercise that you need. When people are away from their homes and workplaces, finding a place where they can work out comfortably can be difficult. A fitness center provides a comfortable space for adults in their golden years and other residents who want to stay healthy by exercising regularly.
Dining is a huge part of senior living. The food is important and should be served in an elegant restaurant-style setting—not in the cafeteria with trays or out of plastic containers.
The meals should be made fresh—either by the residents or a professional chef at one of our on-site restaurants. The food should be healthy, too: no heavy fried foods or salty snacks here!
Activities And Events
Events are a great way to meet new people and make friends. Events can be educational, entertaining, or even both! They are a great way to get together with like-minded individuals and have fun. Activities such as bingo games, movie nights, exercise classes, and day trips provide opportunities for you to socialize in a safe and comfortable environment.
We know that there are a lot of options out there when it comes to senior living. But we hope this list has helped you understand what to look for in your future home and what amenities are available through our community. The bottom line is that we want every resident to live their best life here at TerraBella Newton.
