At Ebenezer, we believe the time to start talking about, exploring, and even making the move to a senior living community is before you need it. It's true for so many reasons, but one of the most profound is one of Ebenezer's core values: dignity. Making a plan for gradual transition instead of quickly uprooting them will help your aging loved one keep their dignity as they move out of their home.
Creating a Plan Before a Crisis
All too often, seniors end up making the move after a catastrophic event. Having to quickly move after a crisis can feel as though they are being uprooted from their home. That kind of abrupt life change isn't an ideal scenario for seniors or their loved ones. Create a plan suited to their needs so you can have an easy and gradual transition into Senior Living.
Fear & Stress
Your loved one may be dealing with fear or stress about moving into a senior living community. We find that along with all of the physical benefits of safety and care our residents receive in Senior Living, life in our communities takes away other stressors as well. Not having to manage their bills, home maintenance, yard work, and everything else that comes with owning a home is a huge weight off seniors' shoulders.
Moving to Independent Living to Help Smooth the Transition
Another option is moving to one of our beautiful Independent Senior Living communities. Our communities are designed to create a lifestyle of convenience and support for seniors, and we provide social activities and opportunities for interaction with other residents and have onsite medical staff and services such as a beautician/barber and a convenience store.
Moving into Independent Living as a younger, more active older adult gives you more of an opportunity to adapt and help you age in place with dignity, keeping you as independent as you are able.
Ebenenzer has a wide variety of living options from active 55+ apartment homes to patio townhomes and cooperatives for seniors. To find out more about our vibrant senior communities, please contact us.
