Living Your Best Social Life at Senior Living Communities

You might think that your best social years are behind you as you get older, like partying in your twenties or hosting dinner parties for friends in your thirties. Friends drift apart and it becomes even harder to make close friends as you get older. But it doesn’t have to be. Moving into independent living, assisted living, or senior living community is the prime time for socialization.

These senior living communities don’t just provide you with a place to live and access to care when you need it, they also create plenty of opportunities for you to socialize with your fellow residents. There are plenty of common spaces for you to mingle and socialize with your neighbors, but these communities also facilitate your social life by arranging a variety of events and activities for you to take part in.

Ensuring residents still have an active and engaging social life is key to keep them happy and healthy. Read more about how continued socialization is good for your mental, physical, and cognitive health.

5 Things You Might Not Know About Assisted Living

Are you ready to make the step into assisted living, either for yourself or a loved one? It helps to be fully informed before making a decision about which level of care and which community is the best choice. We’re sure you’ve done plenty of your own research into the topic, but we thought we’d help out by putting together this list of 5 things you might not know about assisted living.

You can live in a fully private apartment

If you’re imagining a nursing home with rooms branching off long corridors, or shared apartments like college dorms, then you don’t need to worry. Most assisted living communities provide private apartments as the standard style of accommodation for their residents. You’ll be in a living environment where you can easily socialize with others, but you’ll still have your own space and privacy.

Residents have flexibility and independence

Although assisted living provides more structure and care than independent living, residents still have the freedom to set their own schedule and come and go as they please. Care services are provided as needed, and there are plenty of activities to take part in if you choose to. You can eat in the shared dining spaces or in your own apartment. You still have plenty of choice and independence in assisted living.

You might be able to bring your pet along

If you’re worried about leaving your pet when you move into an assisted living community, speak to the places you are considering. Many residencies will allow you to live with your pet. This can be a big boost to the mental wellbeing of residents.

The monthly fees cover most living costs

When you move to assisted living, you don’t need to worry about keeping track of bills and other payments. The cost of your accommodation covers all of this. Although certain facilities and activities may be available at additional prices, your assisted living costs cover various things, including utilities, healthcare, housekeeping, your meals, and a variety of activities.

There’s lots of choice for activities

Speaking of the activities available in assisted living, it’s not all bingo and shuffleboard. Most assisted living communities offer a diverse program of different things to do. These will likely include games like cards and bingo, but also creative classes like drawing and painting, communal movie nights, educational programs, and much more.

We hope this has given you a better understanding of assisted living and whether it’s the right fit for your loved one. If you’re interested in either independent living or assisted living in Bermuda Run, NC, then contact Bermuda Village for more information about our community and services.
