There are many ways in how assisted living can enhance the quality of life for seniors. Assisted living communities allow senior adults to live the retirement they always wanted while getting the daily attention they need. Seniors are living longer, fuller lives, but that doesn’t mean they can’t benefit from living in a community with round-the-clock care and personal programs designed to enhance their well-being.

Come see for yourself how the benefits of assisted living can significantly improve your quality of living at Calder Woods. We have two state-of-the-art assisted living communities that have a smaller patient-to-staff ratio and state-of-the-art equipment to ensure each resident gets the care and attention they need. Our skilled nursing team will create a comprehensive care plan that can include medication management, assistance with daily living needs, physical, speech, or occupational therapies, and other medical needs.

Visit Calder Woods in Beaumont, TX, today by calling 409.407.7636 to discuss how our senior assisted living services can benefit your retirement.

Knowing When It’s Time for Assisted Living

Recognizing when it’s time to move into an assisted living community can be difficult to notice at first. The signs typically come on slowly over time, and many seniors will hide the fact that they need help. It can be difficult for seniors to admit they need daily assistance, to the point where their health and well-being are being negatively affected.

What are some of the signs that it’s time to take advantage of assisted living benefits? Some of the more common signs include:

  • Daily chores, like housekeeping, laundry, and cooking, are becoming too difficult to continue.
  • The quality of life decreases because of mobility or cognitive issues.
  • Their social activity decreases because it is too difficult to go out and visit with friends or family.
  • They forget to take important medication on time, take the right dosage, or forget to refill necessary meds.
  • Their personal hygiene declines.
  • They experience frequent falls and need to call someone to get back up.

Assisted living advantages include a number of beneficial medical services to aid seniors in their daily living needs. They allow seniors to continue leading a fulfilling retirement while being close to professional medical care and therapeutic services.

At Calder Woods, we understand how assisted living can enhance your quality of life. During your initial consultation, we will devise a care plan based on your individual needs today and in the future.

How Assisted Living Can Enhance Your Quality of Life

Assisted living communities create a home-like environment within a secure center that includes 24/7 medical assistance from professional care providers. They care for seniors’ physical and mental needs by creating an enriching environment with daily social activities, educational and recreational programs, and much more.

Some additional benefits of assisted living include:

  • Medical and therapeutic care – Assisted living programs are tailored to the individual and may include wound and infection care, physical, speech, and occupational therapies, medication management, spiritual or religious counseling, and healthy meal plans that consider dietary and medical restrictions.
  • A more active social life – One of the biggest assisted living benefits is having access to different social events. The assisted living communities at Calder Woods feature a number of engaging social activities, including game and dance nights, weekly social outings, cooking classes, and group exercises.
  • Improved quality of life – Seniors who live a more vibrant and engaging lifestyle will have fewer mental health problems and are generally happier. They will have something to look forward to each day without having to worry about their medical needs or having to drive somewhere to visit with friends.
  • Peace of mind for families – Another assisted living benefit is that it gives families peace of mind, knowing their loved ones are in the best place for their health and well-being. It takes the responsibility of their care away from family members and into the hands of qualified care providers who specialize in senior care.

Assisted living communities give seniors who need daily assistance a chance to continue living their best lives. They get the care and attention they need while being close to friends and peers without having to leave the community.
