The past six months have been full of challenges for all of us, as we have worked through the many curve balls that COVID-19 has thrown our way. At Twin Town Villa, we have worked diligently to keep our residents safe, while ensuring their mental and physical health needs are met.
If your family is considering moving a loved one into assisted living, please don’t wait because of the uncertainties of COVID-19. Now is a great time to find a safe, comfortable, and welcoming home at Twin Town Villa in Breckenridge, MN.
“Is it safe to move my parent into Assisted Living during COVID-19?”
– YES, Here’s Why.
It’s easier and safer to move before the winter months.
Soon the weather will be snowy and cold. Not only does this make for unpleasant moving conditions, but it also increases the risk of falling on the ice. Moving your loved one into assisted living while the weather is nice and without the added risk of slippery roads and walkways just makes sense.
We can tap into mental health or memory issues going on now.
We have noticed that isolation from the pandemic can cause mental health and memory issues, like never before. For people living alone, not being able to see friends and family in-person as they could in the past, can create further mental health and memory issues if left untreated. Our trained staff can help identify mental health issues that need attention, once they are living in our community.
Our built-in community & staff help reduce feelings of isolation.
Many senior citizens living by themselves already struggle with loneliness and the feeling of isolation. At Twin Town Villa, we have safe activities and events planned that will help residents feel loved and part of a community. Our residents enjoy everything from outdoor music concerts to indoor crafting, and other safe gatherings that bring people together in a way that is safe but meaningful.
Your loved one may be at risk while living alone.
If your parent or loved one is leaving their home to get groceries, medications, or for other errands, they may be putting themselves at risk for COVID-19. When they live in a senior living community, many of their needs are taken care of under one roof so they don’t have to feel like they need to leave and increase their risk.
Twin Town Villa protects and cares for its residents.
From enhanced cleaning procedures to limiting access to communal spaces, Twin Town Villa is constantly making adjustments to keep our residents safe while providing the best care and environment. We ensure that our staff only come to work if they are 100% healthy. We know how important visitors are to our staff and right now with the nice weather we are thrilled to be able to offer outdoor patio visits, which our residents and families treasure.
If your loved one is in need of care, please don’t hesitate to consider an assisted living facility, even during the pandemic. The staff at Twin Town Villa can help protect your family member from the risk of COVID while enhancing their mental health as they become part of our community. Moving now before the cold and cumbersome winter months hit will make the transition easier and safer.
