Planning for your retirement years is one of the most important things you can do. Where will you live? What services will you receive? How long do you want to live in that community? These are all questions that need to be addressed when selecting a retirement community.
This article will look at why it is important to find a Retirement Community that can transition with your needs as they may evolve.
In assisted living communities, a staff member is always present. They assist with meal preparation and personal care needs such as bathing and dressing. Assisted Living provides help for daily tasks but doesn’t offer the level of medical supervision or physical care that someone needs may require 24-hour supervision.
These communities are an excellent lifestyle choice for seniors who want to maintain their independence but need some assistance. The level of care provided can change as your needs change.
Making the transition from Independent Living to Assisted Living can offer just the help you need without taking away any of the everyday routines you enjoy. It can feel very overwhelming having too many changes occur at once. For this reason, our trained team can add individualized services as needed to ensure that you have precisely the help you need while achieving the independence you desire.
Aging in Place
Continuum of Care is the concept of aging in place and receiving care from different service providers at the location you want to live. One day you might need help with bathing, but on another day, you may not. This means that your needs will change with time, which can be confusing when looking for a retirement community that will suit your needs for years to come.
A retirement community with an all-encompassing continuum of care can help eliminate the need to move when your needs change with age. As your needs change, more or less help can be provided within the same community.
Continuum of care is also about working closely with you and your family to assess how much assistance will be needed at different times as you age. By keeping a close relationship with you and your family, they can ensure that their services are perfect for you and continuously adapt to your needs as they change.
When looking for a retirement community, make sure you find one that will be able to provide the type of care that you will need today as well as in the future. That way, you can enjoy your retirement without losing your independence or giving up the things you love.
