How To Know It’s Time for Senior Living

Nov 21, 2022 | Life at Park Place

Whether your loved ones are living independently or require more advanced support, a Life Plan Community offering Life Care will meet their every need. Life Plan Communities are a type of senior living option that combines an independent lifestyle, amenities and services with access to a full continuum of care on one campus.

Read on to learn more about how to know it’s the right time for the move to a Life Plan Community like Park Place of Elmhurst.

If Your Loved One Is Living Independently

Your loved one may live in their own home or apartment. They still want to continue living every day to the fullest, but they’re tired of cooking, cleaning, and taking care of the house, and they’re not as close to their friends as they once were.

In this case, independent living might be the right choice for them.

In independent living, seniors enjoy all the benefits of socialization, maintenance-free living, on-site culture, dining and amenities, and access to a full continuum of care should they ever need it. At Park Place of Elmhurst, community life offers residents opportunities to full enjoy our services and amenities, including:

  • Interior and exterior maintenance
  • Washer and dryer in every residence
  • Personalization and moving coordination
  • Weekly housekeeping services
  • All utilities included, except phone
  • 24-hour security
  • Scheduled transportation
  • Underground parking
  • Wireless internet access throughout community

If Your Loved One Needs Help with Activities of Daily Living

If activities of daily living, also known as ADLs, present a problem for your loved one, assisted living could be the solution. Assisted living services provide daily support for things like medication management, personal care, bathing, dressing and toileting. Signs that your parent or loved one could benefit from assisted living also include:

  • Trouble paying bills on time
  • Difficulty managing household tasks
  • Poor eating habits
  • Mobility problems

Park Place provides assisted living support for seniors at the Park Place Health and Wellness Center, with personalized care plans for each resident. Residents in assisted living can rely on services like licensed care seven days a week, nutritious meals, assistance with personal care and 24-hour emergency call systems. All of this and more are provided in the comfort of their own private apartment!

If Your Loved One Lives with Memory Loss

Maybe your parent or loved one has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease or has suffered an injury leaving their acuity compromised. In this case, memory support – also called memory care – is likely the right choice for them.

Indications that your loved one might benefit from memory support include:

  • A medical diagnosis of Alzheimer’s or other type of dementia
  • Changes in behavior or emotional state
  • A living environment unsuited to their unique requirements
  • Disorientation or confusion
  • Incontinence
  • Family caregiver is overwhelmed and exhausted

Also part of the Park Place Health and Wellness Center, our memory support teams provide a safe and dignified setting promoting independence. With a wander management system, specialized Alzheimer’s and dementia training, and personalized care plans, you can rest assured your loved one is receiving just the care they need.
