If you’re a senior adult – or the adult child of a senior – you may have thought about the benefits of moving to an assisted living community could provide. However, you may be hesitating for a variety of reasons. You don’t want to leave your home. You don’t want to lose your independence. You can still do everything you need to (even if it takes a lot longer than before). Why would you want to give up your comfort and familiarity and move to a new place?
“The idea of moving to a ‘home’ can cause many seniors to give pause,” says Kristine Tilton, Executive Director of Waterstone at Wellesley. When today’s seniors were younger, ‘nursing homes’ were not a place where you wanted to end up. “It’s part of our job as care providers to show seniors that Assisted Living communities are places where they will be celebrated and supported, not shoved to the side. These days, living in a community can be like living in a resort – except it’s your home!”
In fact, many seniors discover they actually gain back their independence when they move to an assisted living community.
“Not only are seniors receiving the help they need with daily tasks like bathing and mobility, but they’re also freed of chores and responsibilities thanks to a maintenance-free lifestyle,” says Kristine. They don’t even have to cook anymore because all their meals are provided! All of a sudden, they have all the time in the world to do whatever they want … and there’s nothing that they have to do.”
Here are just a few ways that assisted living at Waterstone at Wellesley celebrates and supports independence for the seniors who call our community home.
