Growing older can be a rewarding experience. Most people who reach retirement age have more time to enjoy the hobbies and activities that they love. However, if your health situation changes at any point in time, it can make it harder to enjoy all that life after retirement has to offer.
A senior living community helps you maximize your independence, while providing access to assisted living and other health services, including skilled nursing and rehabilitation.
What Is Assisted Living?
Assisted living gives older adults individualized help with activities of daily living (ADLs). This includes tasks such as housework, dressing, grooming and medication management. The goal of assisted living at Village on the Green, a senior living community in Greater Orlando, is to support residents so that they can spend more time enjoying life and engaging in leisurely activities.
Many of our residents start out in independent living and take comfort knowing that assisted living is available to them if they end up needing assistance with activities of daily living.
Signs You Might Need More Support
If you find yourself struggling to complete activities of daily living (ADLs) or even other more complex tasks — such as financial management — that may be a sign you could benefit from the individualized care that assisted living provides. Signs you might need more support include:
- Spending large amounts of time getting ready, to the point where you miss the appointment or social gathering that you are getting ready for
- Inability to maintain the cleanliness of your home or apartment
- Difficulty preparing meals, especially if nutritional needs are not met
- Trouble keeping up with medications and other essential tasks
These are only a few of the signs that could signal a need for assisted living. At Village on the Green, we have an on-site nurse who can evaluate residents to determine their needs.
Benefits of a Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC)
A Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC), also known as a Life Care community, provides a long-term care option for older adults who prefer to stay in one place as they age. CCRCs offer a variety of living arrangements and health services, such as independent living, assisted living and memory care. They also may have on-site skilled nursing and rehabilitation services.
The benefits of a CCRC are plentiful, but perhaps the most important consideration is that this type of community gives you the freedom to age in place with access to higher levels of care. CCRCs also provide access to a number of engaging programs and exclusive amenities.
