6 Benefits of Assisted Living

Helping a parent or loved one transition from independent living to more comprehensive care can sometimes require a bit of reassurance on your part. It can be difficult to move out of the family home, give up some personal independence, and admit that additional care might be helpful.


The fact is, assisted living offers several benefits for the residents, along with a sense of relief for their loved ones. Here are some of the key benefits for seniors who relocate into assisted living:


Onsite Healthcare

In addition to the nursing staff that provides support as well as medication management, Crimson Village also has a medical clinic onsite. This means assisted living residents can get quick professional care for minor medical issues, routine checkups, and vaccinations as needed without leaving the property.


A Sense of Home

At facilities such as Crimson Village, individual apartments and shared social spaces offer the best of both public and private spaces. Residents can choose to take advantage of dining services to enjoy company at meals while eliminating chores like shopping and cooking. Apartments also feature kitchenettes, so residents can help themselves with snacks or simple in-home meals when they’re feeling chef-y. In addition, staff members are available to help with shopping, laundry, and meal preparation.


Community Engagement

Assisted living at Crimson Village provides a full slate of social and wellness activities to maintain a regular schedule and a sense of fun. Residents are free to participate – or not – as they choose. Crimson Village offers a calendar of daily activities including holiday celebrations, bingo, penny auctions, wine and cheese events, plus a host of special guests. Local librarians deliver and return books onsite, while volunteer tech tutors offer tips and support to residents who need help staying connected to friends and family using smart devices.

Safety and Security

Knowing your loved one has someone to check in on them daily, make sure they are getting out and attending meals, and monitor for changes in behavior and condition can be a great help to family members. In addition, Crimson Village offers transportation for medical appointments and shopping trips, so residents don’t have to worry about driving.


Easy Transition to Next Level of Care

Crimson Village offers a range of care options, so it can be simple and relatively stress-free for residents to transition to memory care or skilled nursing if and when it’s required. Medical staff onsite can provide the necessary evaluations as well.

Customized Care Plans When your loved one moves into assisted living, part of the process is the development of a customized care plan to help residents maintain their independence and quality of life. They include services such as personal care, medication management, and assistance with activities of daily living. The professional team at Crimson Village is trained to provide the services included in the care plan and makes it their mission to work closely with the residents and their families to ensure that the plan is followed so residents receive the best possible care.
