The Benefits of Community
If a smaller care home is not your cup of tea, consider an assisted living community. A community may range from eleven residents to over one hundred. The elderly person may benefit greatly from opportunities for socialization.
Feeling engaged in a planned event, pursuing an interest, or simply having one-on-one conversations with others can boost the spirit and foster an interest in life.
Assisted living communities typically offer a range of activities from simple board games and puzzles to art programs, religious or spiritual studies, and live music programs.
Often, assisted living communities provide assessment and guidance so that activities are targeted to the desires and interests of each resident.
