Is Senior Living Right for My Parents?November 13, 2019
Holidays are a time for tradition. From caroling through the neighborhood to gathering at a table for a feast, there are numerous ways to celebrate the season. At the core of every tradition lies an underlying reason for the season – spending time with family and loved ones.
As we spend time with family, we may begin to recognize that our parents may not be thriving in the way they should be. It could start to be increasingly difficult to take care of household chores, like cleaning and laundry. Or mom and dad may not be able to get out of the house to meet up with friends as often as they would like to.
You begin to think to yourself: are my parents ready for senior living? If you’re just beginning the process, don’t worry; you’re not alone. At Winchester Gardens, our experts are here to offer advice and help you navigate what it means to live in a senior living community. Together, we can help you make the best decision for you and your parents.
Options for Senior Care to Suit Your Loved One’s Needs
To begin the process, it’s important to understand what level of senior living options are available. In our community, we offer:
- Independent Living – Gain more independence while embracing an active lifestyle with independent living, where residents live maintenance-free and are able to dedicate their days to the activities they love.
- Assisted Living – The right level of care meets an engaging lifestyle in assisted living. We curate a personalized care program supporting each resident to encourage the highest level of independence possible.
- Memory Support – Our dedicated team of professionals work closely with each resident in memory support, offering the compassionate one-on-one care needed to keep them connected to the world around them.
- Long-Term Care – Comprehensive senior care and health services, including 24-hour nursing supervision and ongoing support, is offered in our long-term care neighborhood.
In addition to these levels of care, we also offer respite care and rehabilitation services. Respite care offers a worry-free break from your caregiving duties and peace of mind that your loved one is taken care of, while rehabilitation offers the support your loved one needs to get back on their feet following an illness, injury or surgery.
As a continuing care retirement community, we offer a variety of care levels to fit your loved one’s needs all conveniently located on the same campus. So, if mom and dad need different levels of care, there’s no need to worry about them living separately.
A Senior Living Community with a Full Suite of Amenities
Alongside the care offered at Winchester Gardens, our onsite amenities and activities offer the resources your loved one needs to make their days more meaningful. Here, a vibrant lifestyle is honored and encouraged.
Our beautiful, full-service dining is a highly anticipated amenity of our community. Other amenities include an onsite fine arts and craft studio, woodworking shop, movie theater, state-of-the-art fitness center, well-stocked library, heated indoor swimming pool, walking paths and so much more.
With numerous activities we have planned to fill residents’ days, we guarantee your parents will never be bored. They can work on physical fitness through classes including tai chi and aqua aerobics or work out their mind with technology brain games or a stimulating book club discussion. The community also hosts off-site day trips to area attractions like The Patterson Museum and nearby New York City.
There’s always something to do at Winchester Gardens, and we’d love for your parents to join us.
