It’s not easy losing a loved one. And because the grieving process is different for everyone, memorials can help ease the pain while also creating a legacy for the deceased. Here are a variety of ways you can ensure your loved one isn’t forgotten beyond the typical purchasing of a plaque, park bench or memorial brick at their favorite location.
If your partner requires more care than he or she used to and has decided to move into one of our senior living communities, consider making the transition with them. Even if you don’t require any of our thoughtful Assisted Living or Memory Care services like shower assistance and early or mild dementia care, you can still enjoy our communities’ accommodations and convenient services, which may include nutritional counseling and exercise programs.
In honor of National Craft Month, which takes place during March, we’re encouraging all of our residents to embrace their creative side. Participating in arts and crafts is not only enjoyable for many senior citizens but it can also be therapeutic. According to the American Art Therapy Association, crafting can promote awareness and self-expression, relieve anxiety and help seniors cope with confusion and cognitive impairments. It also encourages seniors to develop friendships by bringing together residents who may not interact.
Having a pet has proven to help get senior living community residents into shape all over the country when it comes to boosting morale and decreasing anxiety. We take our promise seriously to enrich the lives of our residents by providing an environment that is physically, mentally, spiritually and emotionally stimulating, and our attitude toward pets is a natural continuation of that mindset.
Now is the perfect opportunity to evaluate whether it’s time to have a discussion about Independent Living, Assisted Living or Memory Care options. Capital Senior Living has grown to become one of the largest senior living providers in the United States and offers affordable housing and an enriched lifestyle to thousands of seniors. Our team of professionals provides quality care in each of our unique communities.
