Are you considering a retirement home for yourself or your senior loved one? Maybe you’re debating whether you’d prefer an independent living seniors community over an assisted living home at VRS? Trying to find the right one for you may take some time, and even need you to gain a better understanding of your own needs and the needs of your senior loved one. You want to make the right decision which you both are happy with.
The difference between assisted living and independent living for seniors:
To get started, do you know what the main differences are between assisted living and independent living? Assisted living is recommended for seniors who may need some assistance as they are not quite able to take care of themselves like they once used to. On the other hand, independent living is for seniors who are able to do most things by themselves, but also want to enjoy access to daily services and amenities offered at VRS.
Here are 3 reasons why your senior loved one would prefer independent living over assisted living at VRS:
1. Daily services and amenities
A strong reason why many seniors love independent living is because they get to maintain their independence while they don’t have to worry about the small, tedious everyday tasks. Home maintenance is taken care of, and so is regular housekeeping and laundry services. There is also 24/7 staff and security available in case you ever need it.
2. On-site and off-site recreational activities
Since you have more time to yourself, there are many on-site and off-site services and activities you can enjoy at VRS. Group recreational activities are organized by the recreation coordinators to ensure you always have something to keep you occupied.
3. Enjoy an active and social atmosphere
With independent living at VRS, you are in a very social and active environment. There are many people around for you to talk to and there is almost something going on every day for you to participate in.
