Sophisticated Senior Living – Style and Substance

Home is where the comfort is

Most of us enjoy our homes and probably can’t imagine ever leaving them. However, as senior living communities are changing for the better, more and more seniors prefer these environments to their own homes. Here’s a few reasons why: senior living has definitely become more luxurious, seniors living in communities are more active and they are rarely bored.

Not created equal but accommodating to all

When mom or dad move to an independent living or assisted living, they are looking for a less stressful level of living. Do your homework; you will discover each community is unique, so mom and dad can get a custom experience. The communities range in style from stately and traditional to modern and contemporary with open floor plans. They come in all sizes and layouts – intimate cottages for a smaller group of residents, high-rise apartment buildings and large suburban all-levels-of-care-inclusive campuses. Features today include outdoor spaces that resemble resorts with walking paths, lakes and high-end swimming pools. 

Levels of care change, level of style should not

Believe it or not, the age of independent living residents begins at 60. Seniors needing some help with daily personal living will find assisted living communities meet their requirements. For a higher level of care, mom or dad can move into skilled nursing residences. For residents experiencing the effects of dementia and Alzheimer’s, most communities have Memory Care units. There are special considerations at every level of care; special rules to guide the design and style, like the right colors and textures. It is important to consider safety at every senior living care level and let that consideration direct the design too. Remember, even though the care of senior changes, the level of style should remain elevated.
