With winter weather comes increased home maintenance, trouble navigating icy streets, and difficulty making time for friends and family. Moving into an assisted living community in the winter means that you won’t have to worry about being alone, and you’ll have experts available 24/7 to tend to any maintenance issues that may come up.
Prevent the Winter Blues with Opportunities for Social Activities
If you’re someone who gets blue when the light changes and cold weather sets in, moving to an assisted living community may help you avoid depression. You’ll have plenty of opportunities for social engagements, yet you can still maintain your own independent, private living quarters. Assisted living community life offers seasonal activities, holiday parties, crafts, game nights, educational opportunities, and more.
Protect Your Health by Avoiding Wintertime Home Maintenance Tasks
Along with cold weather comes icy sidewalks and shorter days. As you age, it becomes harder to keep up with routine home maintenance, especially in the winter. Physical tasks like de-icing the car, shoveling snow, winterizing the house, and getting the furnace and fireplace ready to use can take a toll on your health or result in accident or injury. A senior living community employs maintenance workers who are available to handle problems day or night.
Access Easier Transportation Services
If you can no longer drive, or if driving in the winter is too stressful or dangerous for you, a senior living community makes driving unnecessary. You’ll have safe, reliable transportation to doctor’s appointments and social outings, and can arrange transportation for groceries, basic needs, and prescriptions very easily.
