Fears are something indistinguishable. Only the person feeling it knows what it actually is.
Doing new things is a sure way to feel it. But the new things are made to change us, transform us, make us better.
For a senior citizen, change is the scariest of all yet the inevitable too. There are so many things that an elderly must adapt to – The new generation, the new way of life & everything else. The most important one is moving into a retirement community. A place which is misconceptualized and associated with loneliness & abandonment.
Although that is far from the truth, it does matter where you choose to spend your golden years. There are various factors that need to be fulfilled to make the best retirement community. Of course, your loved ones will be worried about you too. That is why we are here to ease away your worries. Read on for answers to five of the most common fears about senior living:
1. Boredom Strikes You Easier
With the activities and amenities offered by senior living communities like The Chennai Homes, there’s no time to be bored! Senior homes offer everything right from field trips and outdoor excursions to fitness and personal development classes.
Meaning your time of being bored by the routine life is over. Every day at a retirement home is new and fresh and that is why you must opt assisted living.
2. Too Expensive
We have to be brutally honest here. Nice things come with a price. So if we want to live our lives comfortably and enjoy every day, then we must pay some kind of price for it. But the happiness of ourselves or our loved ones does not have a price at all. Don’t you agree?
That is why, retiring smartly, financial-wise is a necessity.
Considering the regular medical check-ups, 24/7 assisted care and the security of being in a gated community is in a retirement community does sound safer & interesting than living alone.
3. Not Getting The Proper Care That You Deserve
Stereotypes about retirement communities are too many to count. As tear-jerking, as they are, they are just that, perceptions of people who made bad choices and were not well-informed. That is why, at The Chennai Homes we give our residents complete transparency from us and provide privacy to them.
The fact also remains that sending an elder to a retirement home is the decision that involves the entire family. Your older loved one should be just as comfortable with their new home as you are moving them there. Good senior living homes are staffed by professionals who are experts on senior care and can offer more advanced care if it’s called for.
Elder abuse and neglect is a crime, and you can avoid it by finding a legitimate, licensed senior community like The Chennai Homes. It is certified and has even won the Best Retirement Living for the year 2016-2017, you can also enjoy the full advantages of being in a retirement home.
4. Not Getting The Medical Attention That You Need
Being alone or isolated has a higher chance of leading to anxiety and depression. Through retirement communities that have people with mutual interests, you will learn, live and be a part of this society without losing your freedom.
If a senior loved one is already ill — with Alzheimer’s disease, for example — memory care provided by many homes offer daily stimulation, planned activities and customized care, all of which can actually slow down the progress of an illness and even improve health and behavior.
5. You Can Say Bye-Bye To Your Independent Life
That’s where you’re wrong because that is the opposite of what happens in a retirement community.
If you choose assisted living, you’ll have help with cleaning, cooking, and other chores. What senior living in The Chennai Homes offers, is greater freedom with the precious time you do have. To make that time happy and rewarding, communities provide ample opportunity for social activities on-site as well as transportation around the area when you need it.
We have tried our best to put forth the positives of living in a retirement home to console your fears. At the end what matters is your decision. Because you have no more responsibilities. So use this period of life to the fullest.
In the right place, it becomes even more special. The Chennai Homes, is here, waiting for you with open welcoming arms in all it’s green-tree filled glory.
