For some older couples, there comes a time when they are no longer able or willing to continue living on their own. Based on the couple’s needs, senior living options exist that gives them the opportunity to stay together and live a lifestyle that best suits their unique care requirements.
Let’s look at 3 great senior living options for couples and the features and benefits of each.
Independent Living offers senior couples the ability to live on their own, while also having access to a wide variety of support services, new friends and stimulating activities that they can enjoy together.
People in an Independent Living Community live in their own residences, but no longer need to worry about cooking, cleaning, laundry, mowing the lawn, or fixing the roof. They also have access to Chef prepared fresh meals with diverse menus designed to please every palate.
Residents enjoy a wide range of luxurious amenities such as spa services, landscaped grounds, restaurant quality dining, beautiful common areas and spiritual services. Also, a highly trained professional support staff is available when needed.
One of the most popular highlights of Independent Living is the many activities available to residents. Whether it be clubs, gardening, games, attending outings to concerts or museums, taking yoga classes, or a full range of other exciting activities, residents love being able to participate with friends in the community.
Assisted Living communities offer an active, engaging lifestyle for couples, but also provide assistance to residents who might need some help with what are known as Activities of Daily Living. These include eating, dressing, using the restroom, bathing, and transferring.
Assisted Living provides residents with beautiful living accommodations, restaurant style meals, and a wide range of other amenities, such as medication management, housekeeping, laundry services and more.
Participating in activities is an important part of the Assisted Living lifestyle. Communities offer a wide range of events for residents, like gardening, reading club, yoga, concerts, lunch outings, bowling trips, and visits with therapy dogs.
Residents enjoy the company of each other, while always having qualified staff members nearby to assist as needed.
