Decisions regarding the future, such as choosing where to live and dealing with health issues, can seem overwhelming and even frightening at times. However, by addressing concerns one by one, seniors can break down complex problems into manageable questions and begin to find answers.
By talking with a loved one or writing down a list of concerns and desires, you can better organize your thoughts and set goals and priorities.
As you consider the options that are best for you and your family, the staff here at Autumn View Gardens is always happy to provide assistance and information, and that's why we've created a list of five reasons to make your home in our assisted living community.
Health is a broad topic, covering not only physical well being, but mental, emotional and spiritual aspects too. The trained staff, nurses and medication aides available through our health-monitoring programs can provide the allies you need when taking control of your health.
By getting to know each resident personally and creating a plan specific to their needs, we help catch potential issues early and see to it that they are addressed quickly. This provides peace of mind and lets you continue to feel and live at your personal best each day.
Maintaining a home takes a lot of money and physical effort, and as we age, cleaning and household chores can become increasingly difficult and even dangerous. When simple tasks like changing a burnt-out overhead light turn into a potential fall hazard and arthritis makes it difficult to hold onto wet, soapy dishes, seniors need a helping hand.
For the staff here at Autumn View Gardens, providing that helping hand is more than a job. It's a mission, and we are thrilled to be able to ease these burdens by taking care of the building upkeep, lawn care and laundry for you.
3. Social Interaction
As a faith-based organization, we believe God created us to be part of a group, the body of believers, and that we can only thrive when we have meaningful connections with others. With this in mind, we strive to ensure seniors can enjoy friendships and personal connections with their neighbors, staff and other members of our assisted living community.
By participating in our group-based activities and events, enjoying meal times in the dining room or even opting for a companion suite, seniors have daily opportunities to engage with others and build bonds through shared experiences.
4. Activities and Events
Jesus tells us in John 10:10 that He came so we could have life and live it more abundantly. Each month at Autumn View Gardens, we have a full calendar of activities for seniors to explore.
Church services, communion and exercise programs let seniors build their personal faith and health, and the country kitchen cooking lessons, arts and crafts, outdoor games and movie nights let seniors continue favorite hobbies or find new ones. Special events like baseball games and trips to the local parks also provide new experiences and memories for seniors to enjoy.
5. Continued Autonomy
When choosing to move from your home into an assisted living community, you may have concerns over privacy and losing parts of your independence. We work with each resident to create a plan that best meets their needs and desires while ensuring their safety.
Our floor plans provide a variety of private studio and companion suite options so seniors can choose the apartment that best fits their lifestyle, and each comes with the security of round-the-clock staff.
