3 Ways Assisted Living Helps Overcome Loneliness
October 9, 2019
Loneliness is a significant concern for older adults as they age. If you have a loved one who is elderly, you’re likely also worried about their emotional health and want to ensure they are as happy and comfortable as possible. One of the main purposes of Kenwood Care’s assisted living facilities is to provide a place where adults can age comfortably and with the care and companionship they deserve.
Here’s how our assisted living homes can help your loved one no longer feel alone.
Compassionate Personal Care
Kenwood Care is proud to be able to offer a 2.5:1 caregiver to resident ratio. This ensures that your aging loved one gets the prompt and thorough care they need, any time of day or night. We have a low caregiver turnover, because we take special measures to employ only the very best individuals who are experienced, qualified, compassionate, and attentive to our residents. Your elderly family member will have all that they need without having to leave our facility, including:
- Nursing services
- Physical therapy
- Medication delivery
- Hairdressing services
- Other special therapies
We know that living in a place that feels like a medical facility or nursing home can contribute to those feelings of loneliness and isolation, so we take proper care to ensure our residents feel comfortable, familiar, and at home with their environment. Our facilities are fully-furnished, offer delicious home-cooked meals and group interactions. We also understand the need for privacy, and our accommodations allow for alone time and independence whenever our residents desire it.
One of our biggest goals is to continually provide a residence that promotes community and socialization because we know that a lack of human interaction and recreation often leads to feelings of loneliness and depression in older adults. We never want residents to feel like they are living in an uncomfortable medical facility, and we offer plenty of activities to promote socialization, engagement, learning, and fulfillment, including:
- Group trips to local attractions
- Games and recreational activities
- Family visits
