With the number of seniors in the U.S.A. growing faster than ever before, the choices in senior living are growing as well. However, many people are stuck with out of date ideas about just what senior living is.
Boxing classes for 95 year old women? Yes, that’s a thing. Tai Chi? Extensive libraries? Numerous cafes and restaurants in a single facility? Yes, these choices in senior living are all possible. From piped in music to dozens of holiday displays in the hallways, many senior living facilities are resembling first class hotels rather than the “nursing homes” we imagine.
My grandmother is 95 and literally taking those boxing lessons I mentioned. She reads a book every two days. She knits warm caps for people who need them. She shops for herself and hosts cocktail hours…or not, sometimes she has lemonade hours for the teetotaler folks. Either way, she is in charge. Let me tell you, she has no doubts about what she wants.
Some of her neighbors were professional musicians before they retired and now put on concerts for the other seniors. Still others host art classes and game nights.
Some seniors want privacy in their own apartment. Others want movie nights, sports bars, and even opportunities for charity work. Even others want a combination of the above. That’s what Concierge Care Advisors will find you — your choice.
