Have you wondered what life is actually like at an assisted living community? We’ve rounded up some misconceptions about assisted living and what it’s really like to be a resident at an assisted living community.
Myth 1: Moving into an Assisted Living Community Means Losing Your Independence
Some people may think that moving into an assisted living community means losing your independence. However, there are many ways that residents in an assisted living community can stay independent. At the Martin Luther Campus assisted living community, we offer both independent and group activities for seniors to continue to pursue their own hobbies and work on projects independently.
Myth 2: All Assisted Living Communities are the Same
Not all assisted living communities are the same! In fact, each assisted living community may offer different services and care. At the Martin Luther Campus assisted living community, we offer a variety of services and an individualized care plan that allows residents to choose the services they want. Some of the services we offer include regularly scheduled activities and lifelong learning programs, three homemade meals per day served restaurant style (continental breakfast for residents that prefer to sleep in), light housekeeping, linen service and other hospitality services.
Myth 3: Assisted Living Communities are Only for People Who Are Ill
In reality, assisted living communities generally have many residents who are not ill. In fact, most assisted living community residents are able to live with minimal assistance. The Martin Luther Campus assisted living community offers personal care and health services in the privacy of a resident’s apartment and an open door community where residents may come and go as they please.
Myth 4: Assisted Living Communities Don’t Provide a Variety of Activities
Some TV shows and movies portray an assisted living community as a place where residents spend the entire day sitting around with nothing to do. In reality, many assisted living communities offer a variety of enriching activities. At the Martin Luther Campus assisted living community, we offer fun activities and events like worship services, exercise, bingo, poetry parties, MacPhail music for life, ice cream socials and more. Our residents always have something to do that piques their interest.
