As seniors start moving towards a new phase of their lives, many choose to relocate to what’s known as a senior living community.
Broaching the subject of your parents moving into retirement living can be tricky. On the one hand, you want them to be safe, socially active, and happy (of course).
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the priority at St. Andrew’s Resources for Seniors System has been to ensure a safe home for residents and a safe workplace for employees. In a further effort to best limit risks for the vulnerable people they care for and to continue to ensure they protect employees, Cape Albeon requires employees to start the COVID-19 vaccination series by October 1, 2021. Effective August 31, 2021, new employees will be required to have the COVID-19 vaccine as a part of the new hire process. While the official date of this effort is October 1, Cape Albeon is strongly encouraging all staff to be vaccinated as soon as possible.
Choosing the best retirement living community will offer senior citizens the opportunity for a simpler, safer, and more enjoyable way of life after 55. But not all retirement living communities are right for everyone.
50 million older adults live with dementia or about 5% of the global 60+ population. Yet, just because a doctor diagnosed you or your loved one with dementia doesn’t mean it’s time for a memory care facility.
Today, there are more older adults than ever. In fact, the CDC points out that older adults are actually set to outnumber kids for the first time in U.S. history over the next two decades.
Deciding to place your loved one in a memory care community isn’t an easy choice to make. You want to preserve their quality of life and dignity while also offering them the help and support they need.
Researching options in the senior living industry can seem slightly overwhelming at first. It appears like there are so many options for care, and it can be hard knowing what’s right for your loved one.
No one can care for your loved one like you. But sometimes, you need help. Choosing between an assisted living community and a nursing home can be difficult, especially when you are not aware of the critical differences.
Every senior living community, assisted living facility or retirement center has a resident with a life story. And it is that story that ultimately will serve as the foundation to help you find the very care that matches your spiritual, emotional, and physical values.
