Like with any new chapter in life, the possibility of moving into a senior living community comes with a number of questions. There are a multitude of aspects to consider, both big and small. From choosing the right community to what the day-to-day life looks like, the questions can quickly pile up.

Instead of scouring the internet trying to get all your questions answers, allow us to breakdown the most commonly asked questions about senior living.

What type of services do senior living communities provide?

The three most common services offered are independent living, assisted living and memory care. Independent living is just as it sounds; residents are able to take advantage of the amenities of a community without worrying about taking care of housework, landscaping or maintenance. Assisted living is often recommended for those who need a little extra help with day-to-day tasks. Finally, memory care is for those with Alzheimer’s, dementia, or other memory loss diagnoses.

At The Villas at Stanford Ranch, we also offer respite accommodations as a trial basis for those interested in senior living, but maybe aren’t 100% ready to make the transition. This type of service includes fully furnished apartments with complete access to all the amenities and community care.

What types of amenities are available?

Every senior living community has different amenities, so it’s important to recognize which amenities are important to you. At luxury communities like The Villas, we offer a wide array of amenities. Some of our amenities include a private theater, heated swimming pool, chef prepared meals, and salon all within our gated community. 

What types of activities are offered?

Activities and events are one of the highlights of being a part of a senior living community! Each day, week, and month can look different depending on the season. Each month, we post a calendar to showcase our wide array of activities to pick from. From exercise classes and movie nights to happy hours and arts & crafts, there’s always something happening!

As well, there are also clubs available for our residents to partake in. This is another great way to meet new friends, bond over a shared interest, or try something new!

If you’re looking for more specific questions, like how to afford assisted living or find the right community for you, we can help with that, too! You’ll find the answers to those questions and more right here on our blog. Or you can always call us to learn more.
