Six Reasons to Choose Assisted Living at Village Woods
For many seniors, getting a little assistance can lead to greater independence. Here are six reasons why at Village Woods, a little “Assisted” can mean a lot more “Living.”
1. Help with Everyday Tasks
Our compassionate Assisted Living staff is here to help with daily activities, while maintaining your independence. People choose Assisted Living when they need help with daily activities like getting dressed, bathing, managing their medications, making meals, doing laundry, or other tasks. Licensed staff are available around the clock to help people maintain as much independence as possible. Even if you don’t need that kind of help every day, Assisted Living gives people peace of mind. It’s nice to know help is there when you do need it.
2. Safe Living Environment
You want to make good, smart choices for your parents as their health starts to change. Maybe your father sometimes forgets to take his medication, or takes more pills than he should. Our Assisted Living services can provide just the help your parents need — in the graceful and dignified setting they deserve.
3. Physical Fitness
We all know the importance of staying physically active, but how many seniors actually have exercise equipment at home? At Village Woods, we not only have group fitness classes but also trained instructors to supervise and guide residents through classes such as breathing, balance, and stretching.
4. Healthy Meals
Maybe the last time you visited your mother’s house, you opened the fridge to find that it was no longer stocked with the fresh fruits and vegetables that Mom used to enjoy. For many people, grocery store trips and meal preparation becomes more difficult with age, leading to a lack of proper nutrition. When it’s time to eat, our residents simply visit our dining room where meals are served restaurant-style three times a day. Now that grocery shopping is no longer on her to-do list, Mom can spend her time and energy doing the things she enjoys.
5. Home Maintenance
Broken furnaces, icy driveways, clogged gutters – the responsibilities of home ownership, not to mention the cost of hiring a handyman or lawn service. Residents at Village Woods don’t miss the maintenance that owning a home requires, and appreciate the fact that any problem they have can be solved with a simple phone call.
Assisted Living opens opportunities for new friendships, new experiences, and new opportunities for socialization. Choosing Assisted Living can also ease the burden on your own relationships. We know we can’t take over your role in your loved one’s life — but by taking over some of the work, we can let you go back to being the daughter or spouse that you want to be.
