You want the best for the people in your life, especially those who have loved and cared for you since you were young. And as they grow older, you want them to have every advantage possible. In a carefree setting specially designed for their comfort and safety, they can leave everyday worries behind and really savor every moment. If your loved one is ready to live their best life—it could be time for a move to senior living.
It could be time for a move to senior living when:
• It’s time to leave home upkeep behind.
Enough with the endless list of chores, repairs to make, grass to mow, furniture to dust and worries to ponder! Instead, maybe it’s time for a move to senior living. Your loved one can trade obligations and responsibilities for a maintenance-free lifestyle and all the freedom that comes with it. With an ever-changing menu of inspiring programs and events to choose from, they can fill their days with activities that are meaningful to them.
• It’s time to enjoy delicious, well-balanced meals (with no dishes)!
Missing meals or eating a poor diet can affect an older adult in many ways, from decreased energy and a weakened immune system to increased risk of depression and more. Imagine instead that mealtimes become positive, enjoyable experiences with satisfying options and attentive service. In fact, at St. Mark Village, dining is truly a delight: from homemade soups and salads, to multi-course dining, to an on-site bakery and locally made ice cream. Our Certified Dietary Manager ensures that each resident is receiving the nutrients they need—and our staff makes sure each dish comes with a friendly smile.
And don’t forget: dining alone at home doesn’t hold a candle to enjoying good company and good conversation over a sumptuous meal.
• It’s time to benefit from continuous health monitoring.
Living at home can be lonely when you aren’t feeling well, especially if you’re not sure why. A simple cold can quickly get worse. And sometimes, it’s tempting for a senior to just decide the ache or illness is just part of getting older. But you don’t want your loved one’s wellness to be left to chance. In a senior living community, they will be surrounded by a professional staff trained to keep a watchful eye on each person’s daily needs, in an atmosphere of vitality and healthy habits. When you are seeking wellness as a lifestyle for someone you care about, it’s time for a move to senior living.
• It’s time to enjoy peace of mind knowing someone is there if needed.
There are so many things that can cause worry for an older adult living on their own. Power outages in the middle of the night. Bad storms. Malfunctions in plumbing, heating or air conditioning. A serious fall or injury. When worries start to outweigh the familiarity of home, it might be time for a move to to senior living.
As a resident of a senior living community like St. Mark Village, your loved one has the peace of mind knowing a helping hand is available day or night, 365 days a year. And you have the reassurance that they are surrounded by a caring team that is always looking out for them.
• It’s time to make new friends and create strong social networks.
Being isolated or feeling lonely can have harmful effects on a person’s mental and physical health. A vibrant senior living community offers companionship, activities, events, and tons of opportunities to interact, connect and feel a sense of purpose. Rather than sitting at home feeling depressed, they can wake each day to a range of choices—and lots of friendly smiles to greet them.
Surrounded by good friends, supported by a caring staff, in an atmosphere that nurtures their body, mind, and spirit—your loved one might appreciate you saying it’s time for a move to senior living!
