When Assisted Living Is the Right Choice
In the later stages of life, daily activities can become increasingly difficult. Elderly people who suffer from arthritis may have difficulty bathing, dressing, and cooking along with other day to day activities. Elderly people in such situations obviously do not require constant medical attention like nursing home residents but help and support with normal, everyday activities is greatly appreciated. An assisted living facility is a wonderful alternative for elderly people who can no longer live alone but do not yet need nursing home care. In an assisted living facility, residents live in a supportive environment, surrounded by personal belongings, often in an apartment-like setting. Assisted living facilities allow senior citizens to retain a feeling of independence by not restricting activity and creating a community where the resident is supported and helped when necessary. Meal times and bed times are not restricted in an assisted living facility and the residents often have many planned daily activities to choose from, including things like card games, cinema nights, and shopping trips. With the options available for senior citizens today, when an elderly person is no longer able to take part in day to day life because of limited mobility, perhaps moving to an assisted living facility is the right choice.
