The world has advanced at a rapid pace, and the benefits can be experienced everywhere. Life has so many more luxuries today compared to what was available a few decades ago. And this has carried over into the senior living industry. The best modern assisted Living communities now go to great effort and expense in order to recreate the comforts of home for residents. This is due in part to continuing development of technology, but mostly due to refinements and improvements in the design and management of assisted living programs. There can be a great variation in the quality and extent of amenities and luxuries provided at different assisted living communities, but Ventura Townehouse has taken great care to implement a luxury assisted living community with personal residences and amenities designed to recreate the comfort of home.
What this means for individuals entering retirement communities is a much broader range of additional amenities, activities, and personal care services. When senior living communities are established, there are several aspects to be considered. According to the six quality aims of the Institute of Medicine’s report, “Crossing the Quality Chasm: A New Health System for the 21st Century”, Henriksen and colleagues have identified the following as critical criteria in assuring patient safety and quality care.
These criteria enables the consideration of factors such as ensuring sufficient space to accommodate family members, controlling noise effects and enabling natural light as well as using light to enable visual performance and at the same time, ensuring the optimum amount of care can be received for the seniors at the correct time.
There are also a wide range of activities that are available which is very rarely available at home. These activities range from physical exercise to personalized activities such as art therapy which can provide leisure as well as help treat various conditions faced by these individuals. Fully equipped gyms, well trained staff and nutritionists are becoming more and more common in assisted living communities, which helps the residents make healthy choices and stay physically fit.
It is becoming more common for couples to live together in assisted living communities when one partner becomes affected by age. This ensures that they receive the care they need while the quality of life increases. Personal assistance take a huge burden off their shoulders, providing them peace of mind and more leisure time to do the things they love.
With almost all things available at home present and then some, senior living communities have become a great place to spend the well-earned retirement that elders deserve. If you’re exploring assisted living communities for your family, please contact Ventura Townehouse for more information about our assisted living community, or tour our establishment.
My grandmother lives at the Ventura Townehouse and I feel confident that she is in good hands. They get her to her appointments and provide any aftercare that she may need. Everyone there is friendly and like family. I feel like I’m at home when I go there to visit her and eat with her in the dining room.
Recently, I visited my Mom from Chicago. Each day I offered to take us out and about in Ventura. We found ourselves having such an enjoyable time at the Townehouse we didn’t leave. The dining room was so lovey to enjoy with her friends. Patios welcoming and the activities kept us busy. We laughed and had fun all day! Thank you everyone for making me feel at home and making my visit special. It’s always hard to leave my mom. But not as hard when I know she is so happy! Until my next visit!
