Tips for Touring Senior Living Communities in Federal Way

Posted by Jason Kitchel on Apr 30, 2021 9:32:56 AM
Moving is a major transition for anyone, especially when moving into a retirement community after having lived in their current home for a long period of time. The hope is that this will be an environment where they, or you, can safely and comfortably enjoy your/their golden years while receiving the needed level of required care. And Village Green, we seek to ensure the transition and moving process is not just incredibly smooth, but even enjoyable. We understand that with any significant life change, you don’t want to make the decision too quickly or carelessly. Just as you would tour college campuses before helping your child choose the right institution or scour the housing market for the perfect new home, so it should be with reviewing your senior housing options in Federal Way. You can learn a lot about a community by actually visiting in person, getting a sense of the atmosphere, talking to other residents, seeing how the staff interact with residents, keeping an eye out for all the small details, and asking questions to help you make an informed decision for yourself or your aging parent.

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.
