Navigating Assisting Living as a Couple

A couple navigating assisting living as a couple

Navigating assisted living as a couple is more common today than in the past. Seniors are living longer, healthier lives and couples who want to move into a senior living community together can do so while still enjoying the comforts of a private home. Couples can live together while enjoying their independence while having access to assisted living services.

Calder Woods is a full-service senior living community that welcomes Texas couples who want to spend their retirement in a comfortable community together and be close to friends, peers, and quality medical support. We have spacious one and two-bedroom homes, private cottages, and suites that you can decorate to your liking to make it feel more like home. Each home has ample storage, full kitchens, climate control, and other amenities.

Navigating Assisted Living as a Couple

When you are ready to move into an assisted living community, there are a lot of questions you may have. What kind of care do they provide? What services and amenities do they offer? Will we be able to maintain our independence? What happens when we need additional care?

Assisted living programs allow senior couples to continue to enjoy their freedom and independence while taking better care of their health. Daily activities, like housekeeping, yard care, laundry, and cooking, can become overly tiring and can reduce a couple’s quality of life. When you move into a private home in a senior living community, you will get access to medical and personal services that include:

  • Assistance with dressing, bathing, and cleaning
  • Medication management
  • Transportation services
  • On-site dining options
  • Exercise and wellness programs
  • Social events
  • Recreational and educational programs

A key concern for couples who want to move into a senior living community is being able to stay together.  Calder Woods is a full-service senior living community that includes assisted living for partners, memory care, and long-term skilled nursing care for individuals and couples. This means you won’t have to move into a different community when your partner’s health declines.

Assisted Living for Couples

What are some of the reasons why you should consider moving into an assisted living home as a couple? There are several personal, medical, and financial reasons that make assisted living for couples a better alternative than living alone.

Be Close to Skilled Nursing Care

As we age, no matter how active you are, there will come a time when you need assistance with daily activities. This can include anything from housekeeping and laundry services to having nutritious meals prepared daily, medication reminders and management, physical, speech, and occupational therapies, and assistance with daily living activities.

A More Enjoyable Retirement

Senior living communities allow seniors to spend more time enjoying the things they love to do and less time worrying about caring for their health. Couples can enjoy a number of personal amenities, such as daily social events, book clubs, exercise programs, cooking classes, religious services, beauty and spa services, and much more.

Each community has a unique set of personal services and amenities, so be sure to ask about which activities they offer while touring the community.

Financial Benefits

Senior couples can save money by moving into an assisted living home. You’ll save on utilities and maintenance and can use the sale of a family home to fund your retirement while still having all of the comforts of home.

Adaptable Care Plans

Another big concern for senior couples is what happens when one or both of their health changes. Many senior living communities today include independent, assisted, and long-term care programs. When your health begins to decline, you won’t have to move to a new community when you need additional care.

Peace of Mind for Families

In addition to couples being in the best place for their health and well-being, families will feel more comfortable knowing their parents are in a safe and secure community with medical services available at any time.
