Assisted Living Offers Seniors the Chance to Thrive While Families Enjoy Peace of Mind
Deciding to place an elderly loved one into assisted living is never an easy thing. Your loved one may naturally resist, as you’re telling them that they need help to do things they used to be able to do without a problem. You’re also telling them to leave home, which is in some cases the home they have occupied for decades. In these situations, it’s best to focus on the positives rather than the negatives, so we will further dive into the benefits of assisted living in this post. Keep reading to learn all about the benefits of placing your loved one in a caring assisted living community like Maple Ridge.
What makes assisted living a good choice for seniors?
Many seniors experience feelings of loneliness and isolation daily. And why not? How would you feel if you saw close friends passing away while struggling with more and more physical limitations? Assisted living can help to allay these feelings, as it allows seniors plenty of opportunities to socialize and make new friends through activities while at the same time offering them an easier, more relaxing quality of life. Additionally, at Maple Ridge, residents will get to know the staff members on a first-name basis, further enhancing their comfort level.
Speaking of staff, it’s available 24/7 at Maple Ridge. Our staff is here to make sure our residents are adhering to prescription medication dosages and to offer assistance when dressing and bathing if needed. The staff is also well-trained and experienced, so you can rest easy knowing your elderly loved one is in the best of hands.
Nutritious & Delicious Meals
Cooking can become extremely difficult as we get older, so Maple Ridge serves farm-to-table inspired food to promote the health of our residents. A selection of several entrees is available, and our friendly wait staff will get to know your loved one on a personal level so they can better serve them. Mealtimes also offer great opportunities for residents to get to know each other.
Safe & Friendly Transportation
Family members worry about getting elderly loved ones to needed appointments, since coordinating their schedules with those of their loved ones can be so difficult. Maple Ridge always has reliable transportation available to take our residents shopping, to the doctor’s office, or just to enjoy a social event in town. Your loved one may very well be able to get out more, and you won’t have to worry about getting them there any longer.
