The Power of Pets in a Retirement Facility

Brutal Winter? Elderly Care Facilities Offer Peace of Mind
At holiday gatherings, aging is often more apparent as we compare our parents to the younger versions of themselves of our holiday memories. It can be quite unsettling. Elderly care facilities can offer peace of mind for families and aging loved ones alike. Even if the time isn’t right for a complete move-in, a winter respite stay can provide fresh insight to what life in a senior living community could be.
Downsizing to a Retirement Community? Declutter Like a Pro
Whether you call it a home edit or a decluttering, getting rid of your belongings can be overwhelming. And when you are downsizing to a retirement community, there is the added anxiety of changing lifestyle in a new home. But with tips from professional organizers like The Home Edit and Marie Kondo, you can make the transition easier.
What does it cost to live in a retirement community?
When considering the cost of living in a retirement community, it is important to have a complete listing of included services and amenities since each retirement community has its own pricing structure. For example, Ecumenical’s comprehensive plan includes an apartment, three meals a day, weekly housekeeping, maintenance, transportation to appointments and errands, social programs, laundry, cable television, WiFi and many other services, all on one convenient monthly bill.
Benefits of Music in Senior Living Communities
