How Retirement Communities Offer a Continuum of Care to Age-In-Place

Posted by Village Green Team on Mar 29, 2021 5:00:00 PM
Moving and transitions are tough and even when you find an environment you like, it can be draining to have to transfer your life and your belongings elsewhere. As a senior, it can be especially difficult to make transitions the older one gets, even if you have family living nearby to lend support. You want and need to be where you have access to the right accommodations, services and amenities to meet your evolving needs. That is where a continuum of care campus like Village Green in Federal Way, Washington, can help.  Village Green residents in Independent Living have the peace of mind that when their needs change, the only transitions they will have to face are slight tweaks to their care plan. The relief of staying in the same place when facing the loss of certain faculties or needing help to do every-day tasks is invaluable. As you consider the potential impending changes, remember that at Village Green you won’t be alone making those choices nor will you feel isolated from the life you had before. We ensure that you or your loved one feels at peace and at home knowing that this next stage of life and the uncertainties of the future are taken care of as we walk you through the entire process of what you can expect in this new season. And that is what we offer and so much more with our continuum of care for the residents here at Village Green.
