any people want to stay in their family home as they age because it’s comfortable and filled with so many wonderful memories. However, moving into senior living is the best next step to stay safe, engaged and healthy as you age.
How do you know when it’s time to consider a move? To determine whether it’s time to start creating good memories in a senior-living community, consider the following reasons provided by Treemont Retirement Community:
1) Stay Safe
Have you fallen or has your loved one had a medical emergency at home? Alone? Medical close calls happen more often as we get older. If we live alone or with an aging spouse, we may not have a way to get help quickly and easily.
A top-notch senior living community will offer safety checks a couple of times a day. Senior living apartments also come with lots of safety and emergency features, such as grab bars in the bathrooms and pull-cords in rooms and hallways that alert community personnel. If you fall, someone will know, as there are always residents and staff around.
