07 Nov Adjusting to an Assisted Living Facility — Part II
Moving anywhere new is a challenge, especially if you’re unfamiliar with the area and the local community. In one of our previous posts, we provided you with three tips that will help you through this big transition, so be sure to catch up on that information if you haven’t yet read it. In today’s post, we’ll continue to provide you with information that can make it easier to adjust to your new assisted living community.
Liberty Ridge is proud to be Top Rated Local® assisted living center in Lexington. Whether you’re looking for a new home for yourself or someone you love, we would love to have you in our community. Schedule a tour today!
Maintain Your Hobbies
Maintaining your hobbies is one of the most effective ways to keep yourself grounded and feeling comfortable as you settle into your new home. Maybe you enjoy knitting as you wind down for the day, or perhaps you have a favorite genre that you read as you start your day. No matter what your hobbies may be, don’t forget about them after you’ve moved into your new assisted living community. You might even discover that your new neighbors have similar interests!
One of the most common misconceptions we hear is that senior living communities remove any remaining independence a senior has. This is a completely understandable fear, as people of all ages confuse the aspects of assisted living communities with those of nursing homes. At Liberty Ridge, we want to empower you to maintain your independence as you age. Some of our residents need assistance with daily chores, while others do not. We can help you with anything from wellness checks to personal laundry services, so just let our staff know what you need throughout the day.
As we noted in one of our previous posts, maintaining an active lifestyle is one of the best ways to keep yourself mentally and physically healthy. Our senior living community is located on 30 acres of beautiful land that allows you to take in the scenery as you walk by yourself or with a friend. We also offer regular exercise classes that can help you stay active without putting your muscles and joints under too much stress.
Keep an Open Mind
At Liberty Ridge, we know that making the transition to life in an assisted living community can sometimes be difficult. While we encourage you to accept how you currently feel about your transition, we also encourage you to keep an open mind about what the future may bring. Our residents form lasting relationships that are a constant source of joy and support, and our community offers plenty of opportunities for you to enjoy your favorite hobbies in the company of other like-minded individuals. There’s plenty of room for you in our community, so reach out to our staff and your neighbors if you’re ever feeling lonely.
Liberty Ridge’s senior living community is designed to help you maintain your independence in a supportive and faith-based environment. Get in touch with a member of our staff to request more information today.
