If you or a loved one is considering moving into a senior living community, you may be wondering what it will be like. Though each living community will have differences that may make them better or worse for any particular person’s needs, there are generally some things in common between these communities.
This video goes through what day-to-day life is like for employees at one specific assisted living community. You can tell that these employees care about their residents, and that makes the residents’ stay in the community that much more fulfilling.
In a community there will generally be different options for day-to-day activities such as board games, movie nights, crafts, and more. Oftentimes, there will be different options that allow the residents to choose what activity they’re most interested in. This helps residents interact with each other and have fun socializing with fellow residents and making friends.
Meals will be different depending on the community, but a lot of times there are shared meals that allow residents to eat together and further make connections and new friendships. Because many people have health conditions such as allergies, diabetes, or heart conditions, meals will often have options to fit a range of diet choices as well.
