WHY IS MOVING TO ASSISTED LIVING BETTER FOR SENIOR HEALTH?

These are all telltale signs that it’s time to consider moving. However, you do not have to wait for these signs to make the move. Finding the right community is time-intensive and you need to be prepared to make the move when the time comes. Here are a few reasons to choose a Windsor House assisted living community.  

  1. PREVENT SOCIAL ISOLATION 

Seniors living alone are at a higher risk for social isolation and increased feelings of loneliness and depression. In a Windsor House assisted living, seniors live in a community environment with friends and staff encouraging participation in social events. Our communities have dynamic and diverse activity calendars with the opportunity for residents to take up new hobbies, join a new fitness class, or enjoy happy hour. 

Seniors who move in to our communities plug in quickly, making new friends, knowing staff members by name, and feeling connected to a larger community of people who are in the same life chapter. Moving to assisted living earlier can help seniors avoid these feelings of isolation that can lead to chronic loneliness, bringing increased physical health and overall wellness.

  1. 24/7 PROFESSIONAL AND COMPASSIONATE CARE 

Residents in assisted living often need help with activities of daily living, which includes dressing, bathing, hygiene, medication assistance, and more. Windsor House assisted living communities offer around the clock care to ensure that needs are being met as they arise and each resident is receiving the attention they need and deserve. Every staff member is well-trained to provide the care residents need in a way to protects privacy and promotes dignity.

No matter if it’s managing a medication schedule, choosing an outfit for the day or an escort to today’s BINGO, the staff at our assisted living communities are standing by to help.

The care provided in today’s senior communities empower seniors to thrive, to pursue new passions, and to create the retirement of their dreams.

  1. A FOCUS ON INDEPENDENCE AND FUN 

Windsor House knows that fun is an important component of aging well and our communities have a variety of ways of providing that fun. Think of assisted living care like the background to your life. It enables you to live more carefree, more confidently, and with more FUN!

We are always here to lend a helping hand by providing assistance or by joining residents for a meal or an evening stroll.

  1. MORE FREE TIME

It’s time to put aside the housework, yard work, and home maintenance. For many seniors, the burden of home ownership is possible – it’s just annoying. We know that seniors have better things to do than shovel snow, mow the lawn, and clean their house.

Windsor House assisted living communities are hassle-free. Residents don’t have to worry about the cleaning, the cooking, the shoveling. It’s our pleasure to work for each of our residents, allowing them to catch up on a reading list, watch a movie, find a new hobby, or invest more time into a lifelong interest. Making the move to s Windsor House assisted living means doing more of what you love.

  1. DELICIOUS MEALS 

Healthy residents are happy resident and meals in assisted living are specifically created to benefit senior health. Cooking for yourself by yourself can grow challenging. With nutritious meals prepared by talented chefs, residents in these communities enjoy delicious meals that are not only good for health but taste good too. Our dining rooms encourage meal times with friends, making each dinner not just a meal but a fun social event.

  1. INVESTMENT IN THE FUTURE 

A move into a Windsor House assisted living is a move into a lifestyle that promotes healthy senior living and opens up a plethora of options for the future if needs should change over time. Each resident has an individualized, custom care plan that is regularly evaluated by a medical team, ensuring that any change in health is noticed as it happens, resulting in early diagnosis and, inevitably, better treatment options.

  1. PEACE OF MIND

All of these benefits work together to create the ultimate benefit: peace of mind. Friends and family of residents rest easy, knowing their loved one is being well cared for in a home-like environment where their needs are seen. Seniors themselves rest easier too, with the knowledge that they have a family in their community who is there for them, cheering for them, and helping make the most of every day.
