When and What to Look for in Senior Living Communities

Senior communities are not just places to live; they are places to flourish.

Retaining one’s independence is the best gift we can give ourselves. As we get older, things we take for granted start to become a hassle in everyday life. Senior living is one way to keep living life on your terms and free yourself from all of life’s little nuisances.

At Atlas Senior Living, we orchestrate our communities to be accessible for all stages of older adults’ lives.

When should I look into senior living?

No matter the stage in your life, senior living has a long list of advantages. Financial security, remaining active, enjoying independence and requiring assistance are just some. If any of the following statements resonate with you, a transition to senior living may be right for you:

  • I’m very independent, but I am getting tired of all my household chores.
  • It would be nice to socialize more.
  • I would like to be more active and maintain my strength.
  • I find it difficult to remember all of my medications.
  • My mobility makes some things difficult.
  • My memory is not what it used to be.

What are the types of senior living communities?

TypesBenefitsAvailable at Atlas Communities? 
Independent LivingFor active people looking to stay busy and social. Enjoy activities, clubs and outings as you please.
Assisted Living and Personal Care HomesFor people who need help with daily living tasks like bathing, dressing and medication management.
Memory CarePeople experiencing Alzheimer’s and/or other forms of dementia can enjoy a reduced stress environment and benefit from brain healthy activities and menu options.
Respite CareAfter an operation or release from rehabilitation, people not quite ready to live on their own can enjoy the supportive environment of senior living. Short-term leasing available.

Independent Living

If you’re an active person and wish to retain that activity level, independent living is a perfect way to experience senior living. As we offer many health and wellness classes as well as social functions and interest clubs, your activity calendar will be as full as you want it to be. With things like meals and house cleaning included, you have the freedom to live your best life.

Assisted Living and Personal Care Homes

Assisted living and personal care includes the same amenities, but offers a helping hand with managing medications and daily living activities like bathing and dressing if needed. We take care of the heavy lifting so you can still enjoy and contribute to our community.

Memory Care

The need for memory care communities has grown by 55% in the last ten years, according to research by AARP. With this, the advancements in the care for people experiencing Alzheimers and dementia is dynamic and our specialized memory care teams utilize the latest research to provide residents with a life of peace and dignity. These communities are specially designed to alleviate stress and reinforce positivity. Activities are created to strengthen and retain cognitive behavior and meals are prepared with brain healthy ingredients.

Respite Care

We offer short-term stays for people who may have just had a procedure done or are looking to get back on their feet following rehabilitation. Respite care is also a great introduction to senior living. With short-term leasing options available and all of the amenities available, we offer a supportive environment while you regain your independence.

Am I too late to senior living?

There are times when it seems like some older adults may need a more intensive type of care, but Atlas communities offer services in assisted living, personal care homes, respite care and memory care. We are here for those suffering memory loss, mobility issues and experiencing problems managing medication. We’re licenced and prepared for people needing assistance with tasks of daily living such as bathing, dressing and grooming.

How much will senior living cost?

When considering the cost of senior living, it’s important to weigh it against things like the high cost of staying in your own home. Hiring a personal caretaker, maintaining upkeep and remodels for accessibility could become endless numbers. At Atlas communities, your meals, activities, cleaning, maintenance, transportation, care and more are all taken care of and included in your rent.
