Seniors are typically optimistic about remaining healthy enough to keep their living situation, but it helps if family or healthcare professionals help assess how the senior’s current home fits their needs. Do they have rooms they do not use for months at a time? Do they live in a community where they have to drive a distance for groceries, doctor appointments or visits with friends? Are they spending their fixed income for companies to mow the lawn, clean the house or make home repairs?
After assessing whether a current living situation is a good “fit,” many seniors come to the realization that the “fit” is no longer right.
Treemont’s Resident Counselors use a checklist, which you can download here, to help seniors visualize if their living situation is right for them. When evaluating a senior’s current situation, Sam and Linda point out the many benefits Treemont offers that would fit into or elevate their lifestyle.
Many couples – including residents Marilyn and Bob – said they were surprised that senior living has given them the flexibility to satisfy their different lifestyles. Marilyn craves the social aspects of senior living, including exercise and dance classes, movie and game nights, plus holiday celebrations with newfound friends and the Gardening Angels Club – no heavy lifting required, thanks to volunteers.
When she’s out socializing, her husband Bob appreciates his alone time at home and surfs the internet, checking out his stock portfolio, in his favorite chair. Marilyn and Bob can meet and enjoy meals with friends in the community, or at one of the hosted lunches in town, but also have the independence to do what they love most every day.
Other couples and singles at Treemont rave about the ease of living in new home without stairs, close to doctors and without the worry of unexpected financial bills and transportation hassles.
If you or your loved one is stuck in a “sort of ok” living situation, or trapped in a home they’ve grown out of because of fear, reach out to one of Treemont’s Resident Counselors today or come by for a tour.
