Peace of Mind is Benefit of Senior Communities during Hurricane Season

There are many benefits to seniors of living in a retirement community. One is “peace of mind” that they will be safe and secure with people around to check in on them, particularly as we approach hurricane season. Hurricanes often pose more damage risks than just wind damage. During the 500 year storm of Hurricane Harvey, the biggest threat to Houston was flooding. Treemont is fortunate to be located where there was no building flooding during Harvey. But Treemont still had to minimize issues related to the general impact of flooding on staff access and power outages.

Living at Treemont provides a layer of comfort since the community prepares for all types of emergencies. Independent living has a small power generator that can keep its kitchen refrigerators and freezer operational. From that, Treemont can power its phone system for the front office and connect some lighting for the lobby area. Treemont staff is present to distribute flashlights

Activities for Seniors in Assisted Living is Key to Success

Activities Program Provides Pulse of a Senior Living Houston Community

I asked my 80-year old Mom what she would look for in a retirement community. It surprised me that she wanted to make sure there was a robust activities program. As an avid attendee of seminars and events at her local Senior Center, Mom wanted to make sure her senior living community would continue its robust activities program long after she moved in. She was concerned that the retirement home might run out of funds and skimp on this important item. Many communities have a “community fee” to support a wide range of activities for their residents. Activities for Seniors in Assisted Living can transform a senior living Houston community into a loving home.


When people retire, they have the opportunity to devote time to hobbies and develop new interests. An active assisted living facility can provide the opportunity for both socialization with new people and the simple joy of playing bridge, mah jong or bingo. As you search for an assisted living community in Houston, TX it is important to ask about the Activities Program and seek out what might interest you. It is also an opportunity to “volunteer one’s talents to the community at large, in the gift shop, in calling bingo, to working the Front Desk to helping with a Life Transitions Group. One long-time gardener has helped to beautify her independent living community campus which has provided a source of pride for the residents and staff who have worked side-by-side with her. Listen to residents talk about the Social, Friendly Environment at their assisted living Houston community.
