It can be difficult when it comes to deciding whether or not it’s time for your loved one to move to an assisted living or memory care community, or which community would be the best option for them. This is something that you’ll want to be well-informed about before taking the next step. Whether you know for sure it is time for your loved one to move to a retirement community, or are getting a head start on researching communities, here are some of the top benefits you should know about life at Woodland Creek in Dresher, Pennsylvania:
Here at Woodland Creek, our residents’ safety and comfort are top priorities. From our experienced and dedicated staff to our building’s ionized air filtering, your loved one will be in great hands. Our walking grounds are also secure yet beautiful, and we have many virus mitigation protocols in place to protect our residents and ensure their wellbeing. By moving your loved one to our community, you won’t have to stress about the dangers of them living alone, such as falling down, getting lost, forgetting to take medication, dealing with sharp objects, or forgetting to turn off the stove! They’ll be completely safe, comfortable, and secure, and you will have complete peace of mind.
To honor your loved one’s memories and experiences, we designed a memory care life enrichment program that provides physical engagement, sensory stimulation, social connections, emotional expression, and more. More specifically, the program includes sensory & virtual reality therapy, music therapy, aromatherapy, validation techniques, health & wellness opportunities, spiritual support, life skills practice and so much more. By moving your loved ones to our memory care community, they will have access to all of these programs that help support their memory and cognitive abilities.
It’s extremely important for seniors to maintain a social life as they age– however, it can be difficult to do so when living on their own. With little to no socialization, your loved one could begin to experience feelings of loneliness and isolation, which can lead to depression and negative health outcomes. Here at Woodland Creek, they will be surrounded by both peers and caring staff, and they’ll be able to make genuine connections with other residents. There are so many opportunities for spending quality time with other seniors–ice cream socials, gardening, art classes, game nights–the list goes on!
Your loved one will become spoiled with our 24/7 gourmet dining experience! Our executive chef and a team of professionals are ready to prepare high-quality, tasty food from the freshest ingredients at any time. They are also trained and more than happy to accommodate residents who have dietary needs such as low gluten, sugar-free diets, and more. Not only does our daily menu consist of delicious meals, but it also includes foods from the Rush University Medical Center MIND diet that help to promote brain health. The MIND diet paired with the memory care programs offered at Woodland Creek will help support your loved one’s memory for as long as possible!
From the peace of mind, you will have to know that your loved one is in good hands and in a safe place, to the amazing life enrichment opportunities they will experience, there are so many awesome reasons to move your loved one to Woodland Creek. These are just a few of the reasons you should consider moving your loved one to our community, and we would be more than happy to show you what else there is to offer!
