For many seniors, the greatest benefit of moving vs staying is safety. If your loved one is frail, visually impaired, or unsteady on his or her feet, living with others can serve as a safety net. There will be people around to help him or her walk, be another set of eyes, or even just help her up from a chair. If she has an accident, a health emergency or a fall, she will not be alone for long. There are emergency response systems in each apartment, and a lifeline or pendant to wear to call for help.
While one never wants to think about security risks of a neighborhood, at our community your loved ones are in a protected environment, which adds to peace of mind for them and family members.
