We have seen it all too often: Loved ones who struggle with making the right decision for their elderly parent’s needs. While you may acknowledge that making the move to a senior assisted living community is in their best interests, you may feel a sense of guilt from doing so. Always remember that there should be no guilt in making a decision that improves your loved one’s quality of life!
In this article, we share with you some benefits of assisted living to consider when making the decision.
Personalized Care with Daily Activities
Of course, you know your loved one better than anyone else, but our compassionate team members at TerraBella Hillsborough will make it a priority to familiarize themselves with your loved one’s needs as well. Assistance with daily living activities such as bathing and grooming will be provided as necessary, and your loved one can also receive help with ambulatory transfers, medication management, insulin management, and more. Our personalized care plans are based on your loved one’s unique needs!
Easy Access to Health & Wellness Services
As your loved one ages, they may require 24/7 nursing care and have a range of medical and therapy appointments to attend. If you are working and they are unable to drive, your loved one may even find themselves missing these appointments from time to time. In an assisted living community, you no longer have to worry about that. All the health & wellness services they require will be right on their doorsteps.
Safe and Secure Environment
Your loved one deserves the peace of mind in their golden years, and that can be hard to achieve when aging in place. If your loved one has a mobility limitation, they may worry about falling at home without anyone on hand to provide assistance. By the time you reach home, hours could have passed.
When they make the move to assisted living, both you and your loved one can enjoy peace of mind that they are aging in a safe and secure environment. With our team members always on hand to provide assistance, our senior living apartments also come with senior safety features in every unit, such as slip-proof floors, grab bars in bathrooms, and a conveniently situated emergency call system.
Access Socialization Opportunities Right Onsite
Besides physical health, social and emotional health are highly important for your loved one’s overall wellbeing. In a residential assisted living community, they will be surrounded by friendly neighbors and plenty of opportunities to get involved. A calendar of daily, weekly, and monthly activities ensures that there’s never a dull moment to be had!
