Let Charter Senior Living Light the Way

Dec 23, 2022

When you’re retired, you deserve to take advantage of new opportunities and enjoy the peace of mind that comes from access to the care services you need most. Charter Senior Living offers an enhanced life through ease, opportunity, and support.  

Many seniors struggle with the question, “When is it the right time for senior living?” Sometimes it’s helpful to ask instead, “How can a senior living community add to my life right now?” At Charter Senior Living, we seek to inspire and support seniors to live their lives to the fullest.

If you’re looking during the new year, Charter Senior Living is right for you. Read on to learn more about why you should choose Charter Senior Living today.

A Life of Freedom and Choice

It may be easier to deal with household chores and responsibilities if you live with family or have a caretaker at home, but relying on family can be different from receiving standard services at a senior living community. It’s not uncommon for relationships to be strained by feelings of guilt or obligation.

Almost all senior living communities provide services such as exterior and interior home maintenance, meals, housekeeping, laundry, and transportation, so you can kick back and enjoy a life of freedom and choice. 

Social Engagements and Recreational Programs

Although living close to family is the best way to preserve the traditional roles that you play in each other’s lives, living in another family’s home or having a family caregiver can make the process more difficult.

For you to remain healthy and happy, it’s crucial that you have healthy relationships; senior living can help you maintain family relationships by giving everyone a break. It can also introduce new ways for you to engage with your loved ones – and maybe even reintroduce old ways you used to connect. Your loved one will also be able to interact with new people in a variety of ways. 

There are a variety of activities and activities at Charter Senior Living communities, including informal gatherings, regular fitness classes, craft workshops, and outings. Whether you want to live a laid-back lifestyle with a few social engagements or an active pursuit toward personal growth and fulfilling relationships, senior living can be whatever you want. At Charter, this includes a haven for any and all furry friends!

Peace of Mind for the Whole Family

For some families, providing essential home care to a loved one has required rearranging their schedules or adjusting their lives. This arrangement is only ideal in the short term, especially if a family member steps in as a caregiver. It can even be dangerous enough for caregivers to burn out. To help address this need, senior living communities may offer a full continuum of care.

With Assisted Living or Memory Care, you can enjoy the same level of independence possible as part of a retirement community that prioritizes dignity and choice. It gives families a sense of security that cannot be overstated. Relationships can continue as usual, and family members can feel confident that their loved one is in good care.

At Charter Senior Living, we use Sagely to help your stay in touch with your loved one. As a resident engagement tool, it uses email, texts and real-time photo updates to keep you as up-to-date as possible.

A Focus on Wellness 

It can feel like a full-time job to keep your family member healthy, depending on their needs. You might have to schedule appointments with their health care team or manage medications for them. You might even have to arrange transportation for them to doctor’s appointments. You might have to serve them completely different meals than the rest of your family. 

The benefits of a senior living community include access to wellness opportunities, exercise classes, and healthy dining options on campus. As needed, senior living staff can also arrange medication and transportation for appointments, among whatever other wellness checks might be required.

Access to Senior Care Services  

The medical care offered by many senior living communities can be tailored to meet your changing needs by offering a continuum of care. Independent Living offers a variety of amenities and activities, and Assisted Living and Memory Care provide more support if you need it.  

As a result, you can rest assured that you are doing the right thing for your loved one by ensuring that they have everything they need and are living a happier life. It is sometimes possible for the best choice to actually increase the independence of all parties involved. Moving to senior living certainly falls into that category!
