The COVID-19 pandemic has changed many things – but it does not have to change your plans to move to senior living. In fact, now may be the best time to make a move to a retirement community. Take a closer look at how senior living can offer residents the chance to live better than ever – even in a global pandemic.
Finding Peace of Mind in Senior Living
As we close in on the ninth month of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have witnessed major changes in the way we live our daily lives. For many seniors, restrictions to stop the spread of the virus have left them lonely and fearful for the future. Appointments were canceled with no notice; grocery stores were emptied. But, for seniors at The Landing of Collegeville, a personal care and memory care community in Collegeville, Pennsylvania, residents continued to have their needs met and stay physically distant but socially engaged.
5 Reasons to Move to Senior Living Now
We know the holidays are coming up. We know there’s a global pandemic. A lot is going on in the world. We know. We also know that now is the perfect time to make a move to senior living. Here’s why.
1. Stress less. Live more.
Forget home maintenance, yard work, cooking, and even cleaning. At The Landing of Collegeville senior living, residents stress less, knowing that their apartment is being maintained, the courtyards are being managed, meals are being prepared, and the community is being cleaned to exceed CDC guidelines. All community employees are currently tested weekly for COVID-19, giving residents peace of mind that those who enter the community have been screened and taken appropriate measures to stay healthy.
2. Make your meals an experience, not a chore.
Grocery shopping has never been more complicated. From capacity limits in stores to empty shelves, meal planning in 2020 has proven to be exceedingly difficult. At The Landing of Collegeville, residents receive three chef-prepared meals every day. Our kitchen team adapts menus for specialized diets and has found creative ways to keep meals social while respecting social distancing guidelines.
“Every time I call my grandmother all she talks about are activities she’s doing with the Landing of Collegeville. Thank you for getting her through this time with more joy than I have heard in a while. You are so essential to her well-being. I can’t thank you enough. I hope you know how much your work means to me and to our family.” – Diana, a family member of a resident
3. Get the care you need.
Residents at The Landing of Collegeville receive personal care and memory care services. Our dedicated staff is available around the clock to ensure residents have the care they need as quickly as possible. Our residents do not have to be worried about finding care services, making appointments, or even getting to the appointments.
4. Stay connected with friends and family.
Seniors who live at The Landing of Collegeville have access to technology that makes it possible to stay connected to friends and family. Residents in senior living are celebrating family milestones virtually, crossing miles, mountains, and even oceans, to catch up with family and friends. In senior living, residents find the support they need to utilize video calls, emails, regular virtual family meetings, and more. In fact, they often find they see family more and are more a part of their lives after moving to senior living.
5. Celebrate life every day.
The holidays are upon us, and like most things this year, they will look different. However, in senior living, there will be decorations, feasts, and yes, even socially-distant parties. At The Landing of Collegeville, we say we serve seniors with a whole lotta heart. It means that we put our whole heart into building a strong community that comes together while staying apart.
There’s never been a more important time to have a community. There’s never been a better time for senior living. The Landing of Collegeville assisted living and memory care community is accepting new residents. Contact The Landing of Collegeville today for a virtual consultation.
