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.
The idea of moving to an independent living facility may be nerve-wracking, daunting, or even undesirable for you or your loved one. It’s a big transition that requires careful planning, preparation and execution, and even after you’ve moved, there may be an adjustment period.
As you and your senior family member make the decision to move them from their own home into an independent living community, you must decide where to go. Not all facilities are the same, and it’s important to become familiar with your options for independent living. One of the important questions to ask is what life will be like for the resident when they move. In a moment, we will take a look at what could be involved in a typical day for residents at Federal Way.
Picking the right independent living community is just the first step in planning your retirement. Once you’ve selected the facility that will support the lifestyle you desire, you get to choose your specific accommodations.
