What is Assisted Living?

What is assisted living?

An assisted living community is a safe environment for seniors to live a mostly independent life with the option of receiving support with activities of daily living as necessary. This includes things such as meal preparation, medication management, housekeeping, bathing, and dressing. The staff at GreenField Court is available to assist Assisted Living - seniors take part in a range of activitiesresidents to perform these tasks in a safe manner while still respecting their independence.

With activities and events that include concerts and entertainment, scheduled speakers, exercise classes, craft projects, excursions to plays and concerts, picnics, holiday celebrations, bible studies, card groups, book clubs and libraries, worship, and our own art gallery, our residents can maintain an active social life within our assisted living community. An assisted living environment is a great place to meet other people in the same stage of life.

The Difference Between Assisted Living and a Nursing Home

The main difference between assisted living and a nursing home is that assisted living does not provide advanced, 24-hour medical assistance such as care for dementia-related illnesses such as Alzheimer’s. Nursing homes are meant to house and support seniors and individuals who have serious health conditions that require close care and monitoring of skilled nurses. Assisted living environments such as GreenField Court provide the peace of mind that comes with assisted living support, when it is needed, from caring staff on duty around the clock.

The Right Time to Move to Assisted LivingAssisted Living - caregiver and senior

Like any major life decision, it can be difficult to decide when the ideal time is to move to an assisted living facility. Moving away from familiar surroundings, schedules, neighbors, and friends can be challenging for many people. For the most part, assisted living is great for those who require occasional help in their daily lives, but are still independent enough to support themselves without advanced medical care.

If you or your loved one needs help with the activities of daily living and wants to be surrounded by like-minded individuals, assisted living may be the right option. The staff at GreenField Court is here to help make the transition easier.
