Many seniors are pleasantly surprised to discover that assisted living is not such a “terrible place” after all but rather a true home that offers many benefits. Several studies also back up this assertion and have found that for many seniors, community living is a healthier, safer and more agreeable alternative to living alone.
Initially it can be difficult for seniors to leave their familiar family home and often mistakenly think moving into an assisted living community will mean the end of their independence. Actually the opposite ends up being true as when a senior receives the proper care he or she needs, they are able to lead a fuller life.
Another reason seniors can be reluctant to make the move is they do not realize that assisted living communities of today are not anything like nursing homes. As a resident of an assisted living community, you not only will have you own private suite but an array of care options and amenities that are designed to provide your utmost comfort and security.
In many cases assisted living is a much better option than trying to patch together the range of services the senior needs from in-home care providers. Furthermore, assisted living communities are already set up to accommodate those who may have mobility difficulties, and it can be expensive to retrofit a private home to make it safe enough for a senior with physical limitations. In addition, assisted living communities such as MorningStar Assisted Living & Memory Care of Santa Fe provide 24/7 care and offer residents as well as their families the peace of mind knowing help is close at hand in an emergency.
