5 Ways Assisted Living Improves Quality of Life

assisted living communities improve quality of life for residents

Everyone loves freedom, and at American Senior Communities, we kept that in mind when we created our Senior Living Communities.  Even our residents who may require different levels of daily support, don’t lose the freedom of living life on their own terms.

Our Communities offer licensed 24-hour care and amenities for those who need some assistance with activities of daily living, but do not yet require Skilled Nursing Care. This means that while privacy and independence are always encouraged, both residents and their families have peace of mind that day or night, help is available if it becomes necessary.

Assisted Living Services Promote Independence

While change can be a challenge at any age, seniors in Assisted Living Communities generally adjust to their new lifestyles after a short period of time. Then, they begin to reap the benefits of all the amazing Assisted Living services and amenities that make their lives worry-free.

Enjoy a maintenance-free lifestyle. When you move into an Assisted Living apartment, you’ll receive help with some of those housekeeping tasks that may have become difficult, like cleaning the bathroom or doing laundry. In fact, the staff will even go as far as changing lightbulbs for residents, so there’s no worry about the dangers associated with climbing a ladder.

Stay safe and comfortable. Modifying your current home so you can move about safely and easily after mobility has become limited can be an expensive endeavor. However, Senior Living Communities are designed with seniors’ unique needs in mind, with wider doorways and hallways for better accessibility.

 

Engage with others on a regular basis. Assisted Living Communities recognize the importance social interactions have on your overall health, so daily and weekly activities are always offered. Continue building those important relationships and find new friendships with those who share similar interests.

Age and live healthier. Residents enjoy three nutritious meals each day. Plus, meals can be customized to individual dietary needs to ensure optimal health. Stay physically fit by taking part in senior exercise programs and classes taught by staff who specialize in senior health.

Have all your healthcare needs attended to. Finally, one of the most important benefits of moving to an Senior Living Community is simply knowing that should your health needs change, the level of care you receive will adjust, too. You’ll receive assistance with medication management, plus help with activities like bathing or dressing as needed.

Staying independent as you age means sometimes accepting a helping hand. At American Senior Communities, you’ll receive the proper care you need and so much more!

American Senior Communities offers comfortable Assisted Living apartments with a variety of amenities throughout our locations. Contact us today to request more information.
