Do you have a loved one who is having a bit of trouble with ADLs (daily activities like eating, toileting, getting out of a chair/bed, dressing, bathing, etc.)? If so, it may be time to talk to them about moving to an assisted living community. They may reject the idea at first because of old-school myths and perceptions. When you fill them in as to all the benefits of today’s incredible assisted living communities, however, they may change their thinking.
Here, we are going to review some of the best assisted living amenities in Atalla, AL. Then we’ll tell you where you can find all of them (and much more), in one location.
Today’s Retirement Communities
Retirement communities today are not the same as they were decades ago. Today, they are hotspots for socialization, fitness, scheduled activities, chef-prepared meals, and much more. If your loved one wants to retire in style, research the best retirement community offering the most amenities and required level of care.
Assisted living communities, in general, offer a continuum of care with a range of services including (in some cases) memory care, assisted living (help with daily activities), and independent living (for active retirees).
What are some of the most sought-after amenities where today’s assisted living communities are concerned?
Meals should be served three times a day, obviously, but include, whenever possible, fresh ingredients prepared by chefs. Ideally, if meals are served in a fine dining atmosphere, all the better. This promotes not only healthy, nutritious eating habits, but offers an opportunity for socialization.
Activities and Events
When checking out assisted living communities, ask to see a monthly activities schedule. There should be numerous events like dances, movie nights, card parties, field trips, concerts, holiday celebrations, and more. These allow residents to socialize and stay mentally and physically active.
Living in one of today’s assisted living communities means anything but sitting alone in your room, staring out the window.
Physical Fitness Programs
One of the key ingredients in living a longer, healthier life is that of physical fitness. Eating healthy goes a long way, but staying active in some way, shape, or form is essential. Exercise and fitness programs are offered by many of today’s retirement communities. These exercises are age-appropriate, and may involve yoga, calisthenics, water aerobics, various sports and hobbies, and more.
Concierge and Transportation Services
Whether your loved one simply needs to get back and forth to doctor appointments, or if they’d like to invite a couple of friends and go into town for a picnic, theater, lunch, etc., both concierge and transportation service are provided in many of today’s retirement communities.
