Many seniors are worried about moving into a senior living facility. They are scared that, by giving up everything they’re used to, they’ll be facing an uncomfortable and depressing future. But there are many benefits to moving into an independent senior living community that they may not have considered. Here are five benefits:
No longer will seniors have to shovel the sidewalk, rake the leaves, mow the lawn, or have to deal with any of the daily chores associated with owning your own home. Instead, they get to relax and let someone else take care of them.
An important thing that seniors need is socialization – it is critical to their mental health to connect with other people and stay socially active. Living in a seniors facility means that there are numerous neighbours who will become friends.
No more bills
Usually, the rent paid to the facility covers all the extras – heat, water, cable, internet, phone, electricity, etc. Seniors won’t need to worry about the bills anymore.
The extra amenities
More people don’t live in homes that offer full service dining rooms, fitness centres, laundry services, hairdressing salons, and landscaped gardens with trails and fountains. But at The Hamlets at Westsyde, we offer all that and more.
With a 24-hour nursing staff and on-site health services including dental services and physiotherapy, The Hamlets ensures that its residents have everything they need and never have to worry about needing medical care and not getting it.
Independent senior living is an amazing mix of self-control over your own life combined with continual care and attention to ensure you get the most out of your senior years. Your stress levels will be reduced as you have less to worry about, and you’ll be amazed at how many new friends you’ll make after you move in. Come and talk to us at The Hamlets at Westsyde to see what we can offer you.
