It's perfectly understandable that most seniors want to remain in their own homes for as long as possible, which is why having to make a choice about senior living can be both frustrating and confusing. Yet, it's a reality that many older adults and their families face each year.
According to the Institute on Aging, 65 percent of seniors depend almost exclusively on family and friends for care. However, when a senior's needs go beyond what caregivers are able to provide, professional assistance becomes the best and most logical option.
Why Choose Supportive Living?
Supportive living is a great choice for seniors who need support and help with the activities of daily living, such as taking medications, bathing or cooking. An aging loved one can receive practical assistance in areas where they need it, without surrendering their autonomy.
It's important to acknowledge that Heritage Villas senior living community is not a nursing home. Seniors who choose to stay with us are able to live their lives to the fullest, in a community setting that is more like home than a hospital. Our residents have the choice between independent living, supported living or memory care services.
