A good goal for a person in their sunset years should be to maintain your health, your social life, your pride and your sense of independence. One of the most convenient and reliable ways to do that is to move into an assisted living facility.
A modern day assisted living facility isn’t anything like an old fashioned nursing home. Contemporary facilities like Castle Senior Living at Forest Hills offer a smorgasbord of amenities and safety features that aren’t possible when you live at home. By moving into an assisted living facility, seniors are able to retain their pride and sense of independence. They are encourage to do things on their own (cleaning, dressing, scheduling doctor appointments), but they have a supportive system ready to go if necessary.
Living alone when you are older isn’t just lonely, it can also be unsafe. If you fall down and can’t get up, have a stroke, what if you can no longer drive or have other transportation options. Assisted living has you covered with 24-hour emergency call response, convenient transportation services and best of all companionship.
Moving to an assisted living facility will also help one to focus on their health and maintain your body and spirit. In addition to transportation services to see doctors you will have health resources at your finger tips, providing you with regular exercise and a well-balanced diet to strengthen your body.
Our goal at Castle Senior Living is to provide every resident with a combination of exceptional accommodations, a high-quality lifestyle and premium care. We believe that central to a senior happiness is a sense of community. We offer a full program of stimulating scheduled events, entertaining activities, and gathering rooms to provide opportunities to socialize and make new friends
