Throughout the year, our staff and residents are blessed by the amazing amount of support they receive by the greater community. If you follow our blog, you might remember one of our recent posts about a local Chick-fil-A in Fayetteville, Georgia that brought food to their local Hope Memory Care Center in honor of Cow Appreciation Day. This meant a lot to us because the residents were unable to leave the community to celebrate in the restaurant.

A lot of times, even small gestures have a huge impact in our communities, which brings us to today’s blog post. What are some ways that someone in the greater community can give back by supporting senior living communities? We realize that this question might be daunting to some, so we have come up with a few ideas to help!

Is It Time to Consider Assisted Living?

Posted by Britny Lawhorn

Aug 16, 2015 2:39:07 PM

As our parents age, the logistics of their day-to-day care become a realistic concern that many of us face. How do you start making primary caregiving decisions for the one who has loved, cared for, and supported you your entire life? 

Many of us struggle with the day-in-day-out needs of our elderly loved ones, which can increasingly pile up over time. It is never too early to start considering the signs that your loved one would benefit from around-the-clock support that a senior living community can provide. Luckily, we can help! Our professional and trained staff care for our residents every day while providing a fun and supportive environment. 

One of the best ways to find out what a senior living community can offer is by taking a tour.  We would be happy to walk you through any of our facilities and give you a first hand look at the benefits of choosing assisted living.  You can find out more about our communities and schedule a tour here.

Transitioning to a senior living community is a major life change for your elderly loved one. At our communities, we provide many activities to help our residents feel right at home. Often, paying special attention to a loved one's hobbies can help associate this transition with positive feelings. 

Gardening is a hobby that many of our residents have enjoyed for most of their lives, so it is important to us to have gardening areas available where we can. Some of our residents have even found a new favorite pastime. We have been pleasantly surprised that our communities do not need a lot of encouragement to play in the dirt!
