The decision to place a loved one into an assisted living facility is hard. Our hearts want to keep our loved ones with us and care for them ourselves, but there are times that it’s not possible for us to dedicate enough time to keep our loved ones well. Assisted living facilities are made to help care for our loved ones when we cannot.
Village East is dedicated to providing a friendly community that allows seniors to live comfortably within an assisted living environment.
Figuring Out the Needs
When it comes to deciding on an assisted living facility for your loved one, you have to first figure out exactly what their needs are. Some things to consider include:
- Are there any medical needs that must be addressed on a regular basis?
- Is your loved one suffering from mental deterioration like dementia?
- Does your loved one just need a place to live where they can have company on a regular basis?
At Village East, we offer different living opportunities that cater to the many needs of seniors. Assisted living apartments allow our seniors to enjoy their independence while also getting the assistance they need to thrive. Independent living patio homes and apartments provide places for our seniors to live their own lives while benefiting from our close-knit community.
Checking the Facility
Don’t just believe us when we say that we are an amazing senior living community. Visit our site and then visit other assisted living facilities for comparison. It’s important to get an honest feel for the place that you’re entrusting your loved one with, because leaving someone you love in a strange place is not an easy decision.
We are confident that our community is perfect for your loved one, but, more importantly, we want you to believe that we are a great fit as well.
Always Ask Questions!
Have you ever struck up a conversation with a senior? They can tell you stories for hours! One of the best ways to get to know exactly how a facility treats its seniors is to ask them. Talk to the people you see on your tours. Ask them what they think of their living conditions.
One thing that seniors tend to be is brutally honest, so getting feedback from the people that live within the community you are touring is a great way to understand how everything is run.
Village East Is Here for You
Village East is more than just an assisted living facility – it is a fellowship. We don’t only offer a place for your senior loved ones to reside, we offer a place for them to truly live that includes regular events that they can participate in and plenty of places for them to gather together to create friendships.
