02 Jul Understanding Assisted Living for Families
Growing into our own as adults is never easy. Most of us can remember fumbling through our twenties, coming into our own in our thirties, and hope that, by this point in our lives, we have found some stability. But being placed in a position where the people who cared for you when you were at your most vulnerable are themselves in need of care can be an incredibly confusing, stressful time for anyone. If your aging parent, grandparent, or loved one is showing signs of a memory disorder, or is otherwise in need of assistance with activities of daily living (ADL’s), you may find yourself unsure of what is best for them and for your family. Because of this, the experts at Liberty Ridge Senior Living are here to help you in your journey of understanding assisted living for families in Lexington, KY.
Who Needs Assisted Living?
Many people require care for a variety of reasons, ranging from individuals with serious medical concerns, those with memory or cognitive disorders, as well as mobility issues. However, when we discuss “assisted living” we are specifically talking about the kind of care that Liberty Ridge can provide for the area seniors. Seniors are the members of our population most likely to experience memory disorders, like Alzheimer’s disease or dementia, as well as to experience mobility concerns and other issues we associate with advanced age. Because of the unique concerns that are experienced by this group, at Liberty Ridge Senior Living, we specifically focus on providing care to your elderly loved ones.
What Is Assisted Living?
“Assisted living” is a term that is often associated by people, with “retirement housing” or “nursing homes.” We find that these terms carry a negative connotation and do not accurately convey what it is we do here at Liberty Ridge. What we mean by “assisted living” is providing a safe, comfortable, welcoming atmosphere where your loved ones can go about their daily lives, while also having daily access to the assistance that they may need to live independently and happily. Rather than living in a situation where they may be isolated from socialization or assistance should an emergency occur, at Liberty Ridge assisted living facilities, daily assistance and social activities are seamlessly integrated into the independence and comfort we know you want for your loved ones. In addition to providing your loved one with care, Liberty Ridge provides amenities to enrich your loved ones’ lives, such as transportation, housekeeping, and high-quality restaurant meals.
Why Liberty Ridge?
We know that when it comes time to consider whether assisted living is appropriate for your loved ones that you have a wide variety of choices. What sets Liberty Ridge Senior Living apart from these other choices is that we do not have a particular focus on care or life enrichment alone. Instead, we try to flawlessly combine both of these areas to provide your loved ones not only with a place where you can peacefully know that they are being cared for, but a place they will love to be and will be happy to call home. When it comes to understanding assisted living, we think that this is the true Liberty Ridge difference.
