What Amenities Should You Look for in a Senior Living Home?

When you consider transitioning from your home to a senior living community, the choices can feel overwhelming. You first must know what type of senior living you want or need. Typical options include independent living, assisted living, memory care, long-term care, and respite care. Some facilities specialize in a particular area, while others offer multiple levels of care. When researching your options, there are several factors to consider. Location and cost are primary factors, but amenities are also essential to consider.

At Westminster Place, we know that leaving your home for a senior living arrangement means getting used to many changes. Having access to amenities on-site helps with the transition. Better amenities provide for a better quality of life.

Assisted Living Amenities to Look for in a Senior Living Community

The decision to seek assisted living is not made lightly and is a transformative time for many families. Assisted living provides the support you or your loved one may need with personal care and other tasks of daily living. When you choose assisted living at Westminster Place, you choose an opportunity for enhanced life. Our assisted living community is catered toward seniors who need assistance with daily activities but still wish to maintain their independence, freedom, and privacy.

Assisted living is ideal for seniors who:

  • Live an independent lifestyle but no longer wish to shoulder the responsibilities of maintaining a home.
  • Need a little assistance around the house but do not have friends or family members who can help daily.
  • Feel more comfortable living in a community surrounded by peers.
  • Can no longer drive or do not feel comfortable driving.
  • Want to remain active but do not have access to engaging activities in their community.

Seniors who choose to sell their homes to move to retirement communities enjoy a level of safety, security, and socialization that might otherwise be lacking. Amenities to look for in assisted living include:

  • Housekeeping services
  • Laundry services
  • Dining services
  • Recreational programs
  • Health and wellness services
  • Medication management
  • Licensed nurse clinicians

When choosing an assisted living program, it is essential to consider your current needs and how they may change in the future. At Westminster Place, our full continuum of care means that you will have a comfortable and familiar place that can adapt to your changing needs.

The Importance of Independent Senior Living Amenities

There is a common misconception that senior living communities are only for those who need assisted living or long-term care. It’s one reason many older adults don’t consider moving to a senior community until they need care, which can mean missing out on all the benefits independent senior living offers.

An independent senior living community is an excellent choice for seniors who are still in good health and want to stay active and get the most out of their retirement years. Freeing yourself from the burdens of home maintenance and upkeep allows you the time to focus on lifetime passions and explore new opportunities.

At Westminster Place, a premier senior living community in Longview, TX, seniors can benefit from living in a luxury community with all of the amenities one could want, including:

  • Pet-friendly homes
  • Housekeeping services
  • 5-star dining options
  • Recreational programs
  • Educational programs
  • Spa
  • Library

Residents in all levels of care at Westminster Place have many activities and services to choose from based on their unique interests. Our dedicated and highly-skilled full-time staff takes the time to get to know each of our residents personally to help create an enriching, healthy life.
