The Benefits of Living at an Assisted/Enriched Housing Community

The decision to move a loved one out of their home and into a senior housing community is often a difficult one. Signs your loved one may be ready for assisted living can vary. Often aging adults will make the change when living alone entails too much work, or when help for some daily activities is required. There are many benefits to assisted living, but the key difference between assisted living and nursing homes is the freedom and control residents have in their day to day lives. These communities are full of active seniors who are able to manage most of their routines without help. Yet assistance is always available when needed, giving you and your family peace of mind.

Some of the benefits of assisted living / enriched housing at an Eddy Senior Living community include:

• Three Nutritional Chef Prepared Meals per day
• 24 hour security and emergency call system
• Daily Resident safety checks, bed making and trash removal
• Housekeeping, laundry and linen service
• Availability of full time, 24 hour assistance
• A monthly calendar chocked full of events that have social activities, cultural, recreational and educational programs

Furthermore, assisted/enriched living communities are designed to provide an environment for encouraging seniors to stay mobile, active, and safe. Often times, as people age, they can have a harder time getting out and socializing. This can make a senior feel withdrawn, lonely, or isolated. As an assisted/enriched living resident, seniors have a chance to become part of the community. They can participate in various community activities, attend community trips, make new friends, participate in group exercise classes, and develop a healthy routine. This socialization is beneficial to the mental health of aging adults.
