As our loved ones age, daily tasks can become challenges or impossibilities. Limited mobility can prevent seniors from being able to clean up spills on the floor, or from taking out the garbage. Normal memory loss can cause seniors to forget to pay bills or take medication. More extreme forms of physical and mental deterioration lead to seniors being able to complete fewer and fewer routine daily living tasks.
An assisted living facility can help our aging family members and their caregivers alike say Goodbye to chores and Hello to quality time with their loved ones.
Goodbye -- grocery shopping, meal preparation, and clean-up
Hello – relaxed nutritious meals eaten in the company of family and friends
Goodbye -- vacuuming, cleaning toilets, and making beds
Hello -- staff members who do all the cleaning for you
Goodbye -- raking leaves, mowing the lawn, and taking out the garbage
Hello -- well-kept property, with a fenced-in backyard for enjoying the sunshine and birdsong
Goodbye -- paying several bills each month
Hello -- all-bills-paid living
Goodbye -- waiting for the caregiver to arrive or having a family caregiver available 24/7
Hello -- staff members who respond at the press of a button to accommodate requests for snacks, drinks, thermostat changes, and physical assistance as needed or desired
Goodbye -- television as a primary source of entertainment
Hello -- activities and events that stimulate cognitive activity and provide an opportunity for fun each day
Goodbye -- loneliness and social isolation
Hello – new people with whom our loved ones can form friendships
Goodbye -- fear of accidents or natural disasters occurring while home alone
Hello -- state-of-the-art fire suppression system; generators for power outages; and around-the-clock staffing
Goodbye -- medication mistakes or overlooked emerging health issues
Hello -- certified medical staff overseen by an L.P.N. so that medication is distributed as prescribed and patient health is closely monitored
Goodbye -- washing and putting away laundry
Hello -- laundry service so that clean clothes are always waiting in the closet
Goodbye -- calling the plumber, electrician, or cable company
Hello -- staff members who take care of any necessary repairs and service calls
