The decision to move into residential care can be a difficult one to make. Every situation is different and there are numerous factors to consider. Reviewing your personal situation, needs and options is the first place to start. If you are finding that your daily care needs, or health concerns are impacting your daily living, then moving into residential care may be the best option for you.
There are significant benefits of residential care (which also is sometimes referred to as retirement homes or nursing homes).
Daily activities such as dressing, bathing, eating/preparing food and managing medications are done by trained staff. Meals, laundry and housekeeping are looked after for you and there are a variety of therapeutic and recreational activities provided. If you have an aging parent or loved one that you are concerned about, you can be rest assured that they will be well cared for in residential care. At the Hamlets at Penticton, we are dedicated to providing quality care while providing a place where each resident can live a meaningful life and reach their own personal potential.
While every person has different needs and interests, take time to consider things such as the location of the facility, the languages spoken there and the different types of programs that are offered. You may work directly with the facility or a case manager to discuss what you are looking for to give them enough information to meet your requirements needs. Visiting the facility for a tour can help decide if it is the right place for you. Take someone you trust or a family member in order to make sure all of your needs will be met.
The Hamlets at Penticton is one of a family-owned group of retirement homes that emphasize a friendly and clean environment for seniors. If you are considering residential care, call 250-490-8503 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
