Assisted living communities are equipped with resources to help residents thrive. If you are considering assisted living for your loved ones, here are 5 benefits to help you decide.
Help with daily tasks
Assisted living communities are expected to meet ADA requirements to ensure safety and comfort for residents. This way, retrofitting your home or your loved one’s current space may not be needed. At Olivenhain Guest Home, not only do we meet ADA requirements, we exceed them to keep our residents safe and mobile. Our facilities include shower chairs, fall-prevention bathrooms, safety rails, and more.
Wherever we’re at in life, we need meaningful connections and interactions to help us live fulfilling lives. The same is true with the elderly, who may be more isolated as they get older. Being around other seniors becomes part of their support system, especially those whom they can share similar experiences with. Olivenhain Guest Home brings residents out of their rooms every day to interact with each other. Our spacious patio also accommodates visitors. For more special occasions, families can use private and semi-private rooms that they can decorate.
For seniors who need memory care, being in an assisted living community allows them to participate in programs designed specifically for their needs. Our Memory Care Community team has designed a suite of National Dementia researched programs and activities to stimulate alertness and physical strength. Loved ones won’t have to go through a long process of selecting programs to enroll their elderly family members in. Activities our residents enjoy include word and picture puzzles, trivia games, and reminiscing about the many experiences they have enjoyed throughout their lives. Residents also work on arts and crafts and experience participatory live music.
Family members don’t have to worry about their loved ones receiving medical treatment when they need it. One key benefit to being in an assisted living community is the access to various medical services. Olivenhain has a community physician, certified nursing assistants (CNA), highly trained memory care team, 24-hour emergency services, and medical and mental health professionals.
Healthy meals are part of the services that residents receive in an assisted living facility. Family members can save time and effort planning meals that are suited to their loved ones’ unique dietary needs. In our community, we prepare meals for residents using only fresh and organic ingredients.
Assisted living communities can take the pressure off families and caretakers when it comes to their loved ones needs when it comes to daily tasks, social interactions, cognitive stimulation, medical assistance, and nutritional care. Olivenhain Guest Home has all of the resources your loved ones will need to live a fulfilled life in a professional, caring, and compassionate setting. To find out if our community is a good fit for your loved one, we offer tours of the facility by appointment. Please feel free to call us or send us a message to book your tour.
