Type of Assisted Living Service
As seniors start to become more dependent and their care needs increase it is harder to plan for and schedule the increasing amount of care you will need. Also, it is often hard for seniors to be motivated to go to the community room and start up conversations since their physical, cognitive and emotional deficits make that more difficult. Maybe they have hearing difficulties or maybe they are self-conscious of their limitations. Unfortunately, this often leads to isolation. Many people prefer to stay where they are comfortable, in there room or apartment and do not utilize the group activities and remain isolated in a private room with a closed door. In a smaller, more home like setting the caregivers and other residents are always around so isolation is reduced and community interactions are maximized within the course of the usual day’s events.
