While anyone can be the target of various scams and fraudulent activity, seniors are preyed on—and fall victim—at a higher rate than younger individuals because they are typically perceived as more trusting, willing to listen, and sometimes just lonely.
With fall officially underway, it is time to start looking forward to the wonderful activities and events the holiday season has to offer, from strolls through autumn foliage and fall festivals to Halloween and Thanksgiving. Not to mention, the fun activities you could do in Federal Way this winter.
For many people, the hardest part about moving is figuring out what to take with them and what to leave behind. If you’ve been living in one home for many years, you know how easy it is for things to accumulate, from mementos and holiday decorations to wall ornaments and other knickknacks.
There is a saying in dementia care that if you know one person with Alzheimer’s disease, you know one person with Alzheimer’s disease. In a sense, the same thing can be said of assisted living facilities. Every establishment bears similarities to the others, but simultaneously, each can be very different. At Village Green Retirement Campus, we work hard to be exceptional.
Independent living communities are generally centered around the same premise: Offering comfortable housing where older adults can live near their peers, as well as have access to a variety of services and amenities that enhance their quality of life for years to come.
One of the main reasons seniors consider moving to a retirement community rather than living alone at home as they age is for the social and emotional benefits that come from the supportive environment and close proximity to peers, caregivers, and staff members.
As people age, there is a natural tendency to want to remain in their current home for as long as possible. This is due to several reasons: the comfort of familiar surroundings, the difficulty in leaving behind a place full of memories, and the tangible effort required to move to a new home.
There’s an interesting role reversal that transpires as parents age. Instead of them taking care of you and attending to your needs as they did in your youth, you may gradually find yourself in the position where you are the one looking out for them.
