Assisted Living: Not Your Grandmother’s Nursing Home
“Shady Pines, Ma.” Those three simple words were the thinly veiled threat issued by Bea Arthur’s character Dorothy Zbornak to her mother Sofia Petrillo played by Estelle Getty on the 80’s hit sitcom The Golden Girls. The inevitable takeaway was that Shady Pines was not a place you wanted to go.
Well, Shady Pines might not hold appeal but the offerings now for luxury assisted living were almost unheard of at the time that show was airing.
Assisted living communities are now more in line with state-of-the-art care and all of the amenities needed to allow seniors to not only comfortably age in place, but also thrive.
Unexpected Pleasures of Assisted Living Communities
There are features and amenities that are available in senior living communities that appeal to everyone, ensuring that as you transition to the next phase of life, you are not expected to give up any of the fun and adventure you’ve come to expect as a natural part of life.
The first thing you notice as you approach a luxury community is the scenery. Modern assisted living communities are providing impeccable views and grounds from the moment you arrive. Providing maintained trails and gardens are some of the aspects to expect with luxury assisted living communities.
Gourmet chefs and culinary delights are some of the exceptional touches that accompany senior living communities. These elegant dining services feature diverse meals developed primarily with taste and nutrition in mind. They’re adapted to any range of dietary needs and involve only the most fresh, seasonal, and high-quality ingredients.
Moving to a senior living community does not mean that life has to slow down at all. One of the services that communities are offering is housekeeping services.
This is a convenience that allows seniors to spend their time and energy on the areas they want to prioritize, meaning that someone else can take care of vacuuming and cleaning the windows.
Why spend your day traversing all over town to treat yourself? Instead wouldn’t it be nicer to have those services just down the street or perhaps even down the hall?
On-site resident salon services are just a few steps away in high-end senior living communities, offering the chance to relax and pamper yourself without having to stress about going out into traffic.
Maintaining health and wellness goes hand in hand with keeping a well-regimented health routine. On-site rehabilitation, physical, occupational, and cognitive therapies mean that seniors can keep moving and keep active from the convenience of their new home within a senior living community.
The Kensington White Plains offers a level of luxury in its senior care services, unlike many traditional assisted living communities. We offer assistance with a full spectrum of clinical support, allowing residents to age in place. Each resident is serviced by a care manager who provides continuity and a positive experience to help enhance your life, from your physical health to your mental and spiritual wellness.
Partnership with Families
Luxury assisted living communities understand the importance of family. They provide close communication with family members while fully managing a senior’s care. This helps family members feel like family again, allowing them to enjoy time with their loved one without the stress of managing their care.
Residents also maintain their independence and dignity with professional management of their care needs.
These services are available in assisted living communities as well. Pet walking, fresh-cut floral arrangements, and automotive services can all be handled by the concierge.
Looking for tickets to a show? Maybe dinner before? And why get stuck having to do the driving? All of this and more can be arranged by luxury assisted living concierge services.
As health needs change, the concierge can also help with scheduling doctors’ appointments, contacting family members, and managing your transportation.
The many luxurious touches and exciting options available in current assisted living communities means that the fun and excitement you’ve worked hard to earn are going to continue to be available to you and that you’ll be in good health to enjoy this to the fullest.
When Assisted Living is Part of Your Next Steps
In addition to the luxury and convenience provided by these communities, assisted living means that as care and needs change, you’re already in place to address those new needs for your health and wellness. Beyond having fun, we want seniors to have access to the highest quality medical care as well.
