Spring is a reminder that change is beautiful. After a hard winter of shoveling snow, salting your driveway, and worrying if the roads are safe, spring can be a great time to look at downsizing or moving to a senior living community. Read on for some benefits to downsizing.
Home Maintenance & Security
When we retire, we have more time to enjoy hobbies and time with family! That time can quickly fill up with chores, home repairs, yardwork, and trying to make our home safe and accessible. As we age, we use up a lot more energy keeping up with these tasks. At the end of the day, we aren’t spending as much time doing the things we love as much as we had hoped to.
While residing in one of our senior living communities, we offer maintenance-free living and our facilities are built with accessibility and security in mind! With 24-hour security and regular maintenance rounding the building, all the chores and tasks that took up your time in the past are now free for grandchildren, crafting, and exploring new hobbies you may come to love.
Activities & Transportation
Staying physically and mentally active is very important for seniors, and people of any age. When you downsize to one of our senior living communities, you will gain access to a vast calendar of monthly events including community outings, socials, fitness activities, and more. In our Assisted Livings we schedule your transportation to your doctor’s appointments and utilize our bus to take group trips once a week!
Chef Prepared Meals
Nutritional needs change as we progress in age. It becomes increasingly harder to find the energy to cook let alone cook healthy things that give us energy. Our apartments include cozy kitchenettes to prepare basic meals, but our chefs at O’Neill Healthcare work closely with geriatric dieticians to curate delicious and nutritional meals three times a day. You can eat our chef prepared meals in the beautiful dining area, our casual cafes & lobbies, or in the privacy of your apartment.
Friendship & Socialization
Last, but certainly not least, is building relationships. Our apartments provide privacy and security, but our buildings also provide community. Your neighbors and staff will quickly become your family as you settle into one of our facilities. Meeting others with similar interests and ideals is easy while attending our social events. People have found solace and support in relationships they’ve built after becoming a widow, joy in enjoying a meal with friends every day, and compassion while enduring illness.
