A reputable senior living community is capable of protecting its members without making them feel as if they are incarcerated. TerraBella Spartanburg employs full-time security personnel that are attentive and will prevent unauthorized parties from accessing the grounds while ensuring residents, guests, and their belongings are secure.
About Our Senior Living Community’s Safety And Security
The city of Spartanburg has one of the lowest crime rates in the country, and our security team is trained to keep it that way. They will screen all visitors before providing access to the community grounds and monitor the coming and going of guests and residents. The community is gated and well-lit at night, and we’ve installed an emergency call system in the domicile of every resident so they can call for help in the event of an emergency.
Benefits of Having Safety and Security Measures in Your Senior Living Community
Elders face a number of potential threats. The first comes from the effects of aging itself. Those who are sixty-five years of age and older often have poorer balance when compared to younger people, making them susceptible to slips and falls. This is one of the most common causes of injury in the United States among elders and may lead to or exacerbate other health problems. Even worse, many elders live alone, so if they slip, fall and injure themselves, and don’t have a mobile phone on their person they might be unable to call for help. Additionally, the immune system of retirees tends to be weaker than younger people making them more susceptible to infection by bacteria and viruses.
The second major threat is the criminal element. Predators often prey on individuals that they perceive as being weak, and those who are advanced in age make natural targets because they are perceived as being wealthy and because their frailty makes them less capable of defending themselves against physical attack. Furthermore, there are some criminals that prefer conning elders out of their hard-earned wealth rather than taking it by force. By becoming a member of our community, you’ll be protected by a caring yet professional team that is more than capable of mitigating all these threats.
When Should You Consider Moving into a Senior Living Community?
Many retirees are extremely independent and are reluctant to move into a senior living community, but doing so provides a host of benefits. Even if you are active and proficient in protecting yourself, becoming a member of TerraBella Spartanburg gives you that extra layer of security, and you’ll get the opportunity to socialize with others of the same age group.
