Retirement communities can relieve seniors from the burden of daily chores, housekeeping, grocery shopping, and yard maintenance. When you look at the details of what senior living at Treemont offers, there’s a great package of services that may turn out to be less than you’re paying now in your current home. As Treemont Resident, Lois, says,
Many retirement communities have all-inclusive monthly rates that includes meals, weekly housekeeping, transportation to doctors and shopping, activities, entertainment and more. “You no sooner call the front desk and maintenance is there to change a light bulb or hang a painting,” says Lois.
Stay Independent at Treemont
As the first Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) in Houston with multiple living levels Treemont Retirement Community has long been a family-owned operation, retaining dedicated staff for decades. Featuring the beauty and quality service of a private estate, the campus provides the right balance of support to help seniors remain independent, active and supported during their later years.
At Treemont, there are many different living options – from Independent Living apartments to Independence Plus with home care, to Assisted Living to short-term rehabilitation and nursing care. There’s no one-size-fits-all home, and Treemont’s Resident Counselors talk through each option and the respective benefits so seniors can make the most informed choice.
With transport to doctors, the availability of housekeeping and meals, retirement communities can reset an adult child’s role from a caregiver relationship back to just spending quality time with family. Retirement communities also offer the peace of mind that seniors are safe by offering daily safety checks, emergency pull chords plus extra care services available when needed.
Additionally, amenities are first-rate and a huge range of social activities are always being offered to ensure boredom is never an issue. Like the host of Great Day Houston Deborah Duncan said of Treemont in the video below, “It’s not a place where you go to die, it’s a place where you go to live again.”
VA Benefit of $1,936 May be Used for Rent in a Senior Community
The Veterans Administration is now more flexible in permitting the use of VA Aide & Attendance benefit by more independent seniors. Qualifying seniors may now use this benefit to pay for rent in a senior living community that offer a “protected living environment.” Treemont qualifies as a “protected environment” because it has support services that include 24 hours staffed emergency call, on site meal planning and preparation, housekeeping for a clean and healthy living environment and transportation to medical appointments. Located at 2501 Westerland Dr. in Houston’s Memorial area, Treemont is currently available for tours of independent living and virtual tours of their assisted living/nursing/rehab communities.
