Discovering the Services You Can Find in a Life Plan Community

Posted on 02/02/2022

When you're looking at your retirement living options and checking out senior housing, you may have come across words like "independent living," "assisted living," and "memory care" that refer to the services provided by Senior Life Plan Communities. What are they talking about, and how can you tell which option is best for you or those close to you?

Navigating your alternatives and determining where to reside might be perplexing at first. You must weigh not only your present requirements but also your future care demands. Understanding the distinctions between independent living, assisted living, and memory care is a good place to start when deciding to move toward this new stage of your life.

Independent Living

Independent Living is a fantastic alternative for healthy seniors who enjoy being active. You get all of the advantages of living on your own property without the hassles. Instead of focusing on house upkeep and yard maintenance, you may focus solely on enjoying retirement to the fullest extent possible. You can go out and socialize, as well as participate in your favorite activities. To put it another way, you're free to stay active, connected, and (most significantly) independent.

In Independent living communities such as LivGenerations, seniors have access to their own apartments or houses. You get the best of both worlds with this option: the comfort and freedom of your own living space, as well as a maintenance-free lifestyle. After a life of hard work, these communities allow you to live your golden years at your best.

The Benefits of an Independent Living Community

For those who want a more active and social lifestyle, independent living communities are ideal. There's never a dull moment because there are always lots of things to do. While each community is unique, you may generally find benefits such as:

  • An abundance of amenities such as on-site gyms, pools, crafts studios, etc.
  • A daily schedule full of recreational activities fit for every taste
  • Access to restaurants whenever you don’t feel like cooking or crave something different
  • Wine tastings, happy hours, seasonal parties, and get-togethers with family and friends among many other social activities
  • Chances to pursue your hobbies and grow in the direction you want
  • Transportation into town provided by the community. You can explore the neighborhood and enjoy the nightlife, shopping, and other entertainment

The greatest feature of these services is that you may utilize them whenever you choose, without having to worry about the responsibilities and hassles of home-ownership.

Furthermore, LivGenerations is a continuing care retirement community. If you find that you need assistance as the years pass, you may be able to transfer to assisted living at any time. It is possible to keep your independence while still receiving the care and assistance you require in your everyday life.

Assisted Living

Another variation of independent living is assisted living. The primary distinction is that you have access to staff members who can assist you with daily activities as needed. It's the sort of senior living most people visualize when they think about retirement communities.

An assisted living lifestyle, like independent living, allows you to live in your own apartment or condo. To give more free time to pursue your interests and other activities, minimal care services might be as simple as laundry and housekeeping. At the same time, there are always highly-trained and skilled personnel on hand to assist you with care tailored to your unique requirements, such as assistance with cooking, cleaning, bathing, medication administration, or anything else.

How to Decide if Assisted Living Is the Right Choice

Assisted living, in some cases, can be a godsend for individuals who require assistance with routine chores but don't have significant medical care needs. Assisted living can provide the ideal alternative for those who need help with daily activities while still requiring minimal supervision. Employees assist you in maintaining your independence, rather than putting you at risk of losing it. That way, you may continue to do the things you enjoy and focus on having a happy, full life.

Have you been researching if assisted living is the best option for you or your loved ones? If you require assistance with the following, it may be a good fit:

  • Cooking
  • Cleaning
  • Healthcare and medication management
  • Bathing
  • Grooming
  • Getting dressed

LivGenerations Assisted Living provides customized care solutions developed specifically for you, as well as access to licensed caregivers and nurses 7 days a week. Simultaneously, you'll be able to take advantage of all of the community's fantastic features, such as fitness classes, on-site restaurants, and a full program of activities and events.

Memory Care Living

You're no doubt aware of the difficulties and stress that come with caring for a loved one who has Alzheimer’s or another form of dementia. You're in charge of your own feelings and concerned about their safety as they confront memory loss. Conditions like dementia, unfortunately, get worse with time.

That is where memory care living comes in. It's a form of housing tailored for seniors who suffer from memory impairment conditions. It gives them a safe, secure, and pleasant place to call home, with the professional care they need.

How is Memory Care Living Different?

Our memory care community at LivGenerations is resident-oriented. Certified, highly-trained personnel get to know your loved one on a personal level. Thanks to that, your loved one receives personalized, one-of-a-kind nursing care.

Our senior living memory care community also emphasizes pleasant resident interactions. It contains individual apartments organized into "neighborhoods," where even the smallest detail has been put in place with care to create a restful and familiar atmosphere for our residents.

The staff considers each resident's physical, emotional, and spiritual needs in order to provide comprehensive care. They aim to decrease stress and promote wellbeing by allowing your loved one to live happily and comfortably.
