Safety & Security: The Peace of Mind Senior Living Communities Provide
Senior living safety is an important topic when you are researching options for a retirement community in St. Charles County. It goes beyond monitoring of the grounds or wider hallways. You should expect, and deserve, an environment that goes above and beyond to help residents maintain their independence and enjoy a happy, healthy lifestyle.
Just some of the ways Avalon Park’s retirement community in St. Charles County focuses on senior living safety
An environment designed for you
From the ground up, modern senior living communities are designed to enhance the wellbeing of older adults with comprehensive senior living safety features. A few examples are one-level residences. Enhanced lighting. Accessible light switches and door handles. Wider, easier-to-navigate hallways. Important safety features in bathrooms. 24-hour emergency call systems. The goal: to free residents to enjoy life as fully as possible, without daily concerns that can be associated with living at home.
Exceptional attention paid to resident health and wellbeing
Senior living safety is more than not having to sweep the sidewalk. It’s activities, programs, and services that promote wellness in all forms, such as we offer at Avalon Park. It starts with ample social opportunities that can reduce the health risks associated with isolation and loneliness. It includes access to fitness classes and exercise equipment that can help keep you strong, improve your balance, and stave off diseases. Chef-prepared dining also serves to provide the right mix of flavor and nutrients.
24/7 staff available for emergencies at night, weekends, holidays
Things happen and when they do, it’s so nice to know that in independent living in St. Charles County, there’s always going to be someone on site who can be of assistance. You don’t have to wait for the morning to get help if you’re not feeling well. It doesn’t matter if it’s a holiday. You are always surrounded by caring, well-trained staff who are committed to keeping you healthy, happy, and secure. And easy access to supportive care if needed is a major component of senior living safety.
Security of grounds and protection from solicitors
It can be upsetting to worry about who is at the door when you live at home—is it someone selling something? Or someone trying to deceive you with a bogus offer to repair a roof or paint a fence? A big part of senior living safety is that you live in a community with security, as well as a concierge. Any visitors are screened before they can enter and no stranger will be knocking on doors.
365 days a year grounds maintenance
When you hear about how carefree life is in a retirement community in St. Charles County, you can believe it. Not only do you not have to worry about housekeeping or leaky faucets, you don’t have to go outside and rake leaves, mow the lawn, weed the flower bed, and maybe most importantly, no more worrying about slippery walkways covered in snow and ice. That’s because a dedicated staff is out there taking care of it, so you can stay inside, warm, safe and away from the risk of falls. What a relief!
Scheduled transportation so you aren’t driving in bad weather or at night
Trying to drive at night, or through a pouring rainstorm or blowing snow, can be quite unsettling. Most likely you’ve done your share of driving to work, taking children to school and more. As a resident of independent living in St. Charles County, you can sit back and relax…and let someone else do the driving! Scheduled transportation is a major perk of life at Avalon Park.
Companionship that protects you from the dangers of isolation and loneliness
Being isolated and feeling left out is just plain bad for your mental, emotional and physical health. But being around friendly, interesting people such as you’ll find in a senior living community is just what the doctor ordered: healthy socializing. Living in this supportive environment gives you the reassurance that good company is always right outside your door, which make a huge difference in how you feel—and how long you live.
Senior living safety can offer you great peace of mind
Live well Live better. That’s our philosophy at Avalon Park. We’d love to tell you more about how we help make our residents’ lives easy and enjoyable.
