Summer vacation is right around the corner. Where are you planning to go this year with the entire family? If you have a senior loved one with limited mobility, don’t worry. Here are several destinations that will allow all of you to have a good time.
Residents and their loved ones have come to know and trust the licensed nurses that are in many of our communities. Whether providing medication administration or medication management around a particular condition or conducting personal care assessments and tailoring care plans to individual needs, these courteous professionals in our communities deliver the quality of care our seniors desire and deserve.
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.
