How Assisted Living in Covington Leads to an Independent Lifestyle

When deciding on local senior care housing, many people believe that a traditional  nursing home in Covington is their only option. While these types of facilities may be necessary for some, there are other important factors to consider such as the physical and mental state of your loved one. For those who do not need the intense care of a nursing home, then a senior living community in Covington may better fit their needs. These types of senior living communities provide a variety of services and amenities that will give your loved ones as much or as little help as they require. Here are some ways that The Windsor Senior Living Community in Covington help seniors maintain their independence.

Private Living Spaces

 The residents of our senior living community are able to create their own private dwelling space in our recently renovated apartments. There are multiple options available, ranging from a studio apartment to a two bedroom apartment. Residents are able to customize their rooms to their liking and create a warm space for themselves. Both assisted living and independent living have the same apartments available to them. Unless they share with their neighbors, other members of the community will not know what care plan they are using. 

While services are in place for seniors to receive help for dressing, bathing, and medication reminders if they choose, our residents have the freedom to make their own decisions and lifestyle choices. For example, if a resident wishes to make themselves a meal and not have one from the on-site dining hall, they are able to do so in their apartment’s private kitchen. However, our food services team goes above and beyond to create a menu that even the pickiest eaters will have a hard time turning down! Luckily, residents can also choose to have their meals delivered through room service.

Active Socialization with Fellow Residents

Typically, in a nursing home environment in Covington, the focus for the residents is placed on medical and more hands-on care. Meanwhile, senior living communities encourage and support residents to be socially active and make friends. Our residents are active, and fill their calendars with our wellness and social events! There are frequently scheduled yoga and exercise classes, musical performances, arts and crafts events, and even Wii bowling tournaments. Residents are able to gather together in community and get to know each other. This dynamic living environment makes a more engaging and uplifting environment for seniors.

Fun Outings and Travel Resources

Unlike most nursing homes, The Windsor Senior Living offers regular opportunities for residents to get out and about around Covington. Trips to the movie theater and local grocery stores are regularly scheduled. Additionally, driving assistance for doctors appointments and social events are available with advanced scheduling. Seniors choose the trips they wish to attend and the ones they do not. Along with that, The Windsor Senior Living’s independent living residents often still  have their own car if they wish. Seniors are actively encouraged to engage with their local community outside the walls of our facility.
