Why Individuality Is Important in a Senior Living Center

Admitting that we need to move on to the next stage of life can be a difficult thing to process. Additionally, there are some fears that come with that change. When it comes time to move into a senior living center, no matter if it’s on the Northshore or the Southshore, it’s understandable if you have your concerns. One of the major concerns we hear about from potential residents and their families is the fear of loss of individuality. Various other types of senior living centers, such as nursing homes, have a huge problem with the loss of individuality. However, at The Windsor Senior Living Center, we feel that it is vital for our senior residents to have their individuality intact.  Take a look to better understand why it is important to keep individuality intact and how we manage to do that at The Windsor.

The Purpose of Individuality

Not every person has the same needs or wants. So why do so many of us generalize the needs of our elders? This loss of individuality can leave many seniors feeling hopeless and fearful of life inside of a senior living environment. However, this doesn’t need to be the case. As many of our residents are able-bodied and yearn to be active in their community and daily lives, we encourage them to follow this. We can see this in the way that they engage with each other in their personal lives and in the optional activities we offer daily. This sense of purpose can help them have a happier life and have more energy to enjoy it.

Activities and More

At The Windsor, we do our best to provide an engaging environment for our residents. One way that we manage to do this is by having a fantastic list of monthly activities planned by our Activities staff. It’s also important to note that these activities are a revolving door. Meaning even if you don’t see something that catches your eye now, you will when we have a new schedule up with new activities! Some of the activities and events you can look forward to include:

  • Bi-monthly Yoga Classes
  • Wii Bowling
  • Arts and Crafts
  • Coffee Chat
  • Caregiver Support Groups
  • Senior Prom
  • Ball Exercise Classes

These are only a few of the examples of the many events and activities that we have going on at The Windsor. 

Of course, this isn’t the only way we encourage our residents to stay independent. All of our residents are encouraged to find their space and to intermingle with other residents—ultimately, finding their place in our senior living center on the Northshore.
