When thinking about care for older family members or loved ones, many people worry about finding good care and ensuring the well-being of older individuals. Fortunately, many alternatives to traditional nursing homes exist that assist older residents and still encourage their independence. Supported living gives residents the freedom to enjoy community life while still receiving constant and compassionate care.
Here are four benefits supported living provides residents:
- Provides independence. Residents of a supported living community can choose to make their own meals, have full decision-making power over home decoration, and can come and go from their home as they please.
- Is cost-effective. Traditional nursing home models can charge rates for services that many families don’t need or can’t afford. At Glenvale Villas, each resident retains ownership of his or her home and is only charged for the services he or she uses.
- If your needs change, supported living works with you to ensure you have the best care. Our community provides continuous care, meaning that the community’s nursing network will provide low care to high nursing care. Furthermore, residents are not required to move out or relocated to a traditional nursing home when their care needs increase.
- Gives you a community. Unlike in a traditional nursing home, couples can live together in a home they own together and receive individualised care. Additionally, since residents have autonomy over their own schedules, spending time with neighbors and visiting family members is not just acceptable but welcomed and encouraged, so residents can continue to foster relationships while receiving high-quality care.
