Is Senior Living Right for My Parents?

Senior Living | 12/6/19


There are lights everywhere you turn and cookies being decorated by the dozen. It’s the holiday season, which means it’s time for family parties and get-togethers where we’re able to connect with loved ones and spend quality time with those most important to us.

As we spend time with family, we may begin to recognize that our parents may not be thriving in the way they should be. Mom and dad may mention they aren’t able to leave the house and catch up with friends as often as they’d prefer. Or, you may notice it’s becoming more difficult for them to do activities of daily living, like doing the dishes or dressing themselves.

You may begin to think to yourself: is senior living right for my parents? This may seem like a big step, but at Monroe Village, we don’t want you to feel overwhelmed. The experts in our community are available to answer any questions you have and help guide you through the process. Together, we can help you and your loved one make the best decision for themselves and your family.

Senior Living Options for Your Loved One

At Monroe Village, our goal is to help your loved one live the most fulfilling life they possibly can while offering the support they need to truly thrive. In order to accomplish this, we offer a variety of senior living options designed to fit their needs.

  • Independent Living allows you to trade in home maintenance for freedom of choice and a vibrant lifestyle.
  • The personalized support you need to achieve your highest level of independence is offered through Assisted Living.
  • Around-the-clock Skilled Nursing combines long-term care services with an engaging lifestyle.
  • Our highly-trained Memory Care staff members apply person-centered care and best practices that allow your loved one to thrive.

Along with these options, we also offer rehabilitation for those who need to get back on their feet following an illness, injury or surgery.

But what if mom and dad need different levels of care?

As a continuing care retirement community, there’s no need to worry about your parents living separately or having to endure additional moves. All of our supportive services are conveniently located on the same campus, making it easy for your parents to continue to live together as a team.

An Active, Engaging Lifestyle Awaits

Living here means living well. Alongside a variety of living options, our activities and amenities go above and beyond those you might expect at a traditional senior living community. This programming is brought to life through LivWell, our award-winning holistic wellness program that offers the resources your loved one needs to make their days more meaningful.

Everything they need to enjoy a fulfilling lifestyle is right outside their door and/or down the hall – allowing your loved one the opportunity to socialize and connect to others.

There’s always something to do at Monroe Village, and we’d love for your loved one to join us.
