Assisted living communities are constantly adapting to meet the needs of a growing senior population. Many assisted living communities today offer a continuum of care of services allowing residents to stay in a community, even if their needs change over time.

Moving to an assisted living community can feel intimidating and overwhelming especially if it means saying goodbye to a family home and the end of a chapter. However, with all the new offered activities and quality of care, it can also be the beginning of a new journey with new opportunities waiting each day.

What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted living communities offer seniors a carefree way of living without having to deal with the typical burdens of household chores, medication management, or feelings of isolation. These communities provide help managing activities of daily living including bathing, dressing, mobility, continence, eating, and personal grooming. To ensure top quality of life, assisted living communities also offer fitness classes, day trips, dynamic activity calendars, and so much more.

More than just housing, today’s senior communities offer the care services that empower seniors to live independently and the peer community they need to thrive.

When Is It Time to Move Into an Assisted Living Facility?

As Americans live longer and healthier lives than ever before, many seniors are living at home for longer. However, certain signs may indicate it’s time to move to assisted living.

A decline in health and independence
As you age, chronic conditions require more care, medication management, and the potential for a health crisis only increases. If a health event ever arises, it’s better for a senior to be in a care community prepared to prevent and handle whatever crisis happens.

Poor hygiene and/or home maintenance
Cleanliness is paramount to overall health and wellness. Aging can make some seniors afraid to bathe, fearing falls that typically occur in the bathroom. Infrequent bathing and messy living conditions may indicate it’s time to seek assisted living.

Feelings of social isolation
More than just periodic loneliness, chronic isolation can lead to severe health issues for many seniors. A lack of community and socialization can cause depression, chronic health issues such as dementia and heart disease, may lead to unhealthy behaviors like smoking or abusing prescription medication, and even an increased risk of death.
