It is important for you to have accurate information before you help a family member make this transition. There are many misconceptions floating around about assisted living communities. We’re here to set the record straight:

Seniors Will Lose Their Independence

A senior who fears that they will lose their independence may not want to live in an assisted living community. However, this is not true. Our communities are designed to help people who need help with the activities of daily living, but people will still be able to maintain their independence. Our staff members encourage people to maintain their independence. There are a variety of amenities and activities that can help people improve their well-being.

It is not Affordable

A senior may opt to stay at home because they think that it is not affordable to live in one of these communities. However, staying at home can also be expensive because there are monthly bills. They will also have to pay for repairs around the home. When one adds up all of the costs, they may find that living in one of our communities is the less expensive option.
