The Benefits of a Higher Level of Care
As your loved ones age, you may find that they need extra care. A popular choice for additional help are continuing care retirement communities. These tiered communities offer residents several levels of care from independent living to hospice care, all on one campus. When contemplating continuum care for your loved one, there are many factors to take into consideration. As you explore your options, consider these benefits of living in a continuing care community.
High Level of Care
Each resident receives an individualized care plan, custom tailored to fit his or her personal medical needs. Staff members are trained to keep an eye out for any changes in functioning—anticipating any adjustments in care. Should there be a need to modify the resident’s care, the resident is able to move from one level to the next without having to leave the familiarity of the community.
There are many perks and state of the art amenities included when living in a continuing care community. Security, meals, housing maintenance, outings, wellness clinics, or even laundry services are included, depending on which package or facility you choose. Living in a continuing care community takes the uncertainty and work out of living and allows residents to flourish and enjoy their golden years.
Sense of Belonging
Residents have access to a large, vibrant network of people with shared interests. This sense of community can be a large draw for many contemplating a continuing care community. There are many opportunities for social gatherings, organized field trips or group sessions to keep residents entertained.
Peace of Mind
For many, living in a continuing care community provides families with peace of mind. Families don’t have to worry about whether or not their loved ones needs are being met, both now and in the future. At Catholic Eldercare, we provide all levels of care, on one convenient campus.
