At The Windsor Senior Living Community, we’re always talking about how proud we are of our community and residents for being able to thrive with each other and still have a sense of individuality. However, individuality doesn’t mean “solidarity.” Many of our residents just want their families to visit them more. And, visiting them can actually help their well-being in the long run. Learn more about the benefits of visiting your loved ones at their elderly home with our professionals.
What It Does For Our Residents
Numerous benefits come from family visits. And we really can see the improvement in our residents when they see their family regularly. Take a look at a few of the benefits that our residents might feel. And see why you should visit.
Makes them feel safer.
One of the biggest fears that people have about senior living communities is that loved ones are kept in the dark. At The Windsor, we ensure residents and their families are aware of events going on and if there are any incidents with their loved ones who may not be able to express themselves as well. Although we go above and beyond to give the absolute best care to our residents, that doesn’t mean there isn’t some type of fear in their hearts. We encourage family and friends to visit not only to spend time with them, but also to check in on how they’re doing. Frequent visits make our residents feel seen and that they’re being taken care of not only by our community but by their families, too.
Feelings of loneliness and isolation can have negative effects on our general health. This is even more so for the elderly members of our communities as they are more at risk for health problems. But by visiting, you can help our residents feel happier, cared for, and give them the interaction they need to boost their overall happiness. This then creates a domino effect that helps their health in the long run.
Additionally, because you’re able to visit more often, you get to see more as well. Having visits from loved ones help us do our jobs better and improve the care of our residents.
Shows you care.
We know it may seem obvious, but long bouts of isolation can begin to cause doubts. Many residents in every type of senior living home—whether it be a senior living community like ours, a nursing home, or even a memory ward—can begin to feel forgotten and abandoned. But taking the time to visit, especially when you have no underlying reason to, can help residents feel included and happy.
Take the Time You Have With Family
Family is always important. But with this past year, we’ve all seen how easy it is to lose someone. Taking the time to spend even a few minutes with your elderly family members helps to create the memories you need down the road. You and your family can both benefit from visiting our elderly care home. Visit us soon and create those special memories today.
