The Benefits of Assisted Living

Many people might benefit from assisted living, but do not know what that kind of lifestyle it entails.

Assisted living is an option that many retirement communities offer to residents.  Residents in assisted living receive extra help with certain daily tasks and additional assistance if required, but are still able maintain autonomy and control in their lives.

Residents gain significant benefits when choosing to move to assisted living.

Health Benefits

There are numerous health benefits for residents living in assisted living. Pickersgill assisted living residents can receive help with medication monitoring and also have access to physical, occupational, and speech therapy services if residents choose to use them. Meal time provides not only the health benefit of a variety of nutritious foods but also offers a great opportunity for residents to socialize. Getting residents to interact with new acquaintances or encouraging participation in planned social activities, such as card games, concerts or a writing group has certain health benefits as well.

Safety Benefits

Residents in assisted living have access to on-site staff 24 hours a day in event of emergency.

Pickersgill residents have access to an emergency call system to contact the on-site nurse if they ever need help, even in the middle of the night or early in the morning.

Easier Life

Often, people might not consider assisted living because they enjoy living in their current home. However, when living in an assisted living program at a retirement community, residents no longer need to worry about daily, tiresome household chores such as cooking and cleaning.

Residents in Pickersgill’s assisted living program receive three chef-prepared meals per day, housekeeping services, and medical services. In addition, residents are no longer isolated in their homes; they have easy access to a variety of daily classes, lectures, and events.

Independent Lifestyle

Assisted living allows residents the chance to make their own schedule and run their own life.

Pickersgill Retirement Community describes their assistant living program as “an independent life, with help as you need it.” Residents are able to decorate their rooms, attend classes, leave campus, and do whatever they desire.
