The words “independence” and “assisted living” are usually not associated together, but there are actually many ways that residents can maintain their independence while residing at an assisted living home. One of our goals at Martin Luther Campus is to empower residents to stay independent but have support when they need it.
Stretching and Aquatic Therapy
If residents do simple stretches and aquatic therapy, they will be more prepared to stay independent while residing at an assisted living home. Stretching strengthens their muscles, keeps them active, and makes the trauma of injuries less damaging and increases the recovery time of injuries. At Martin Luther Campus, we provide an exercise class every weekday and aquatic therapy is available to build strength and muscle.
Keeping Up with Hobbies
At an assisted living facility, independent and group activities are a fantastic way for seniors to structure their day. If seniors continue to do some of the same hobbies and activities that they did when they lived at home, the will feel more satisfied and independent while residing in an assisted living home. At Martin Luther Campus, we encourage residents to keep doing things for themselves and to engage in group activities and hobbies like art, music or weekly worship.
If residents stay mentally stimulated by consistently learning new things, reading, doing word games and completing puzzles, it will help maintain independence. If residents fill their calendar with mentally challenging activities, they will develop a sense of purpose, accomplishment, and independence. Assisted living at Martin Luther Campus provides fun and stimulating activities like card games, Bingo, life long learning activities and spiritual programs.
While living in an assisted living home there are a number of ways to remain independent. To learn more about Martin Luther Campus’ assisted living programs, schedule a private tour.
