One of the reasons that so many seniors are hesitant to enter retirement communities is because they don’t know what to expect. They often have negative preconceptions of an impersonal institution, not unlike a hospital ward, with endless, sterile hallways and anonymous, cell-like rooms. But this is not at all what modern senior living is like. At our Village Park Senior Living Communities, we appreciate that every resident is a unique individual with their own personal goals. Some might want independence while others may be looking for community involvement. In some cases, a married couple may even come in with very different health care requirements. That’s why we offer so many different lifestyle options to choose from. Whether you are looking for independent living, assisted living, or specialized memory care services, Village Park Senior Living offers options that are custom suited to many different lifestyle needs.
Designed for active, healthy seniors who want to maintain their independence and privacy, but who are still interested in taking advantage of the many amenities and services that Village Park Senior Living can offer, independent living offers the best of both worlds. Residents can enjoy the security and comfort of living in a close-knit community while still having several different Village Park Senior Residence Options, ranging from single-family bungalows, to cozy cottages, to private apartments. However, because they also have access to public dining, transportation, housekeeping, and community activities, they can avoid the isolation that many seniors feel and can get more enjoyment from their retirement.
Seniors who need some assistance with daily activities but who still wish to remain physically active and socially engaged can benefit a great deal from an assisted living arrangement. Residents in an Assisted Living unit maintain their own personal, private space, but also enjoy the attention of courteous staff members who can provide help, as needed, with medication management, bathing, grooming and/or dressing, meal preparation, housekeeping, and transportation. Assisted living residents get the extra help they need, when they need it, while still enjoying all the Village Park amenities and activities for seniors.
Memory Care Services
One of the biggest fears among seniors is a loss of mental faculties and memory, particularly if they have to interact with others in unfamiliar environments. Memory care is a specialized, secure unit for seniors who are suffering from different forms of dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease. Residents in memory care enjoy all of the convenience and amenities of Village Park living, but are also provided with a more structured schedule. This combination of routines and familiar surroundings create a safe and stress-free environment for seniors who suffer from varying degrees of memory loss. Due to a variety of reasons memory loss can also be due to senior isolation.
At Village Park, we believe that the secret to providing exceptional care and comfortable retirement living lies recognizing that every person is a unique individual. By providing so many different options to choose from, we can ensure that even residents with very different needs can live together in one happy and harmonious community.
