What Level of Senior Living is Right for You or Someone You Love?
If you or your family has decided to start the senior living search, this is an exciting step forward. Not only can senior living enhance an individual’s daily life, but allow them to prioritize passions and health and focus on the things that matter the most to them.
However, it can be confusing when researching different lifestyle or care options. Senior living communities offer a wide range of choices so that each resident receives the appropriate support and services. So, where do you begin?
At Village Green Senior Living, our Seattle senior living community offers three levels of home choices:
- Independent Living
- Assisted Living
- Respite Care
We believe in the importance of living a full life, which begins with our commitment to enriching lives and building community. Below, we are highlighting each of these home choices and how to determine if it’s right for you or your family.
Independent living is the perfect option for you if you’re a retiree searching for a community of peers and neighbors or you want to downsize and enjoy the perks of a maintenance-free home.
Independent living offers seniors the opportunity to live life on their own terms. It combines the comforts of home with a vibrant environment where you can meet new people, enjoy enriching activities, and explore offered amenities at your leisure.
Independent living is an excellent opportunity for individuals to make the most of their retirement years while enjoying activities and enriching programs that focus on enhancing life quality. Village Green Senior Living’s event calendar is packed with a wide range of activities and special events for residents to enjoy every day, including:
- Lunch, Dinner, and Happy Hour Outings
- Book Club
- Fitness Classes
- Bible Studies
- Card and Casino Games
- Shopping Outings
- Movie Nights
If you or a loved one have started struggling with Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) or need extra assistance when it comes to medication management or health concerns, assisted living incorporates all the benefits of independent living with additional support and the personalized care they need to live safely and enhance their quality of life.
While assisted living residents still receive the care they require, they can enjoy all offered activities and amenities, just like residents in independent living. In other words, assisted living is the helping hand many seniors need to live their lives to the fullest!
Our assisted living team is made up of dedicated caregivers who are available 24 hours a day, specializing in caring for those with care needs. Residents who choose Seattle senior living at Village Green have their own lifestyle plan tailored to their individual needs and determined separately from living amenities.
If you’ve had a recent accident or are leaving the hospital following surgery, it can be difficult to manage daily tasks and activities on your own. Fortunately, respite care can help. Respite care helps people make the transition from a hospitalization to the comfort of their homes, offering a secure environment for a short-term or extended stay.
Respite care is also a great opportunity for a “trial stay” in a senior living community. If you’ve been considering making the move into a Seattle senior living community, you can utilize a short-term stay in respite care to gain a better understanding of what your lifestyle might look like there.
By participating in the active living programs and activities offered, it’s easy to meet new people, enjoy all of the offered amenities, and envision yourself beginning your senior living journey in a new and exciting community!
