Seniors often resist change. If they’ve lived in the same neighborhood for years, the prospect of moving may seem scary. But, by and large, assisted living communities, which offer easy medical access and senior-friendly facilities, make for much safer environments than older houses that don’t accommodate aging tenants. Once they adjust to the changes, many seniors find their fears melting away in light of the many advantages of assisted living.
Abundant Social Opportunities
Whether due to the passing of friends or decreased mobility, seniors may not socialize as much as they did when they were younger, a change which can sometimes trigger depression. When not practiced regularly, social skills can decline, leaving many seniors feeling anxious about being around other people. Heritage at Framingham is a healthy social environment for seniors. From a unique dining experience in our soon to be renovated dining room to fitness classes, clubs, and trips, we provide many opportunities for seniors to bond with peers, which may even expose them to new places and skills.
Preparing a healthy meal takes time and great effort. Many seniors may not have the energy for meal preparation and instead opt for high-fat, high-sodium microwave or stovetop dinners. By contrast, Heritage at Framingham provides three nourishing meals a day. In addition to providing proper nutrition and relieving seniors of the physical burdens of food prep, our unique dining experience allows seniors to enjoy the company of other residents. Meals are prepared with Registered Dietitian oversight.
Household chores like vacuuming, laundry, and yard work can build up and start to overwhelm seniors. Some may simply be ready for a break from the hassles of maintaining a home. Heritage at Framingham offers their residents cleaning services, so that the residents can spend more time enjoying leisure activities, traveling, and socializing. Heritage at Framingham also provides transportation to medical appointments within a 15-mile radius of Heritage.
Heritage at Framingham offers its residents three heart-healthy meals a day, weekly housekeeping services, and private transportation, as well as access to a fast, personal emergency response system.
