#SP Driven by a wave of enthusiasm among us Silver Disobedients—with our determination to enjoy our silver years to the max—senior living facilities are offering unprecedented amenities.
For some perspective on this trend, consider the description of “assisted living” on the website of the National Institute on Aging: “Assisted living residents usually live in their own apartments or rooms and share common areas. They have access to many services, including up to three meals a day; assistance with personal care; help with medications, housekeeping and laundry; 24-hour supervision, security and on-site staff; and social and recreational facilities.”
This sounds a bit dry to me—because I’ve found that many of today’s senior living facilities are not only concerned with our immediate wellbeing, but also strive to make life as exciting as possible. This can include gourmet meals, beauty salons, libraries and computer centers, not to mention game parlors, cocktail lounges, art and music instruction, hands-on gardens, and animal companions from dogs to horses.
No single senior living community could possibly provide every perk, but some stand out. One is Brookdale Senior Living, which operates 800 senior living facilities in 45 states, comprising a wide spectrum of services: assisted living, independent living, memory care, skilled nursing, hospice and continuing care retirement communities.
Brookdale communities offer more than 200 amenities. Most include beauty and barber shops, wellness centers and libraries, as well as flat-screen TVs, computer and internet access, fitness centers and arts & crafts studios. Some additionally offer concierge service, chefs and dieticians. But Brookdale does more than provide these perks—its staff is skilled at weaving them into an experience ensuring that residents feel comfortable. Brookdale also works with families of prospective residents to help them choose which of its facilities would be ideal.
The best way to get a feel for the amazing amenities that await residents at a Brookdale community is to browse their website. The peace of mind we can enjoy as senior living community residents may be the most valuable amenity of all.
