IT CAN BE A STRUGGLE to make the decision whether to begin the next chapter of your life by moving to an assisted living community, and we want to help you out. Here are eight great benefits of facilities like Avista Assisted Living in Heber, UT.
1. Full-Time Compassionate and Professional Care
Residents in assisted living often need help with daily tasks such as dressing, bathing, hygiene, medication assistance, and more. Every staff member at Avista Assisted Living in Heber, UT is well-trained to provide the care residents need in a way that protects privacy and promotes dignity. No matter if it’s managing a complex medication schedule, choosing an outfit, or escorting to a yoga class, our staff members are standing by to help.
2. Enjoy a Rich Social Life
Seniors who live alone are at a higher risk for social isolation and feelings of loneliness and depression. In assisted living, seniors enjoy a community environment with friends and staff encouraging participation in social events. Our communities have dynamic activity calendars. Residents have opportunities to discover hobbies, join a fitness class, and meet new people.
3. Fun and Independence
Assisted living isn’t just about care services, it’s also about having the freedom to enjoy life. We make sure residents are doing what they can when they can. Think of assisted living care as the background to your life: it enables you to live more carefree, more confidently, and with more fun!
4. Free Time in Assisted Living
Many seniors are capable of maintaining a home but find it more of an annoying burden than they want. They have better things to do than mow the lawn, shovel snow, sweep, dust, and vacuum. Residents in an assisted living community don’t have to worry about the cleaning, the cooking, the shoveling.
It’s our pleasure to work for each of our residents, allowing them to catch up on a reading list, plan an exciting trip, find a new hobby, or invest more time into a lifelong interest. Making the move to assisted living means doing more of what you love.
5. Delicious Meals
Meals in assisted living are specifically created to benefit senior health because healthy residents are happy residents. Cooking for yourself by yourself can grow challenging.
With nutritious meals prepared by talented chefs, residents in these communities enjoy meals that are not only good for their health but taste good too. Our restaurant-style dining provides each resident with delicious meals. Also, elegant dining rooms encourage mealtimes with friends, making each dinner not just a meal but a fun social event.
6. Safe Transportation at Your Convenience
When driving becomes unsafe or car ownership becomes too much of a hassle, assisted living communities offer reliable transportation to local shopping, dining, events, and doctor appointments. No more shoveling the car out of snow, de-icing the windshield, or driving through heavy rains.
7. Invest in Your Future
A move into assisted living is a move into a lifestyle that promotes healthy senior living and opens up a variety of options for the future if needs should change over time. Each resident has an individualized, custom care plan that is regularly evaluated by a medical team, ensuring that any change in health is noticed as it happens, resulting in early diagnosis and, inevitably, better treatment options.
8. Gain Peace of Mind
All of these benefits work together to create the ultimate benefit: peace of mind. Friends and family of residents rest easy, knowing their loved one is being well cared for in a home-like environment where their needs are seen. Seniors themselves rest easier too, with the knowledge that they have a family in their community who is there for them, cheering for them, and helping make the most of every day.
