Moving to assisted living is a huge decision and is not one to be made lightly. Doing research, speaking with family and friends, going on tours, and more are all vital parts of choosing what’s best for you and your family when you finally decide to take the plunge.
Here at Bayshire Carlsbad, our assisted living in Oceanside is sure to catch your eye. From our friendly and well-trained staff to our exciting activities and outings, we’ve got everything you need to make your stay in assisted living the best that it can be.
Are you still wondering if moving to assisted living is right for you? Let us help! Here are some of the top reasons why you might want to make the decision to move into assisted living:
1.) You’ll be safe and secure.
Moving to assisted living means that you’ll be safe and secure – in more ways than one.
Assisted living comes with a wide array of safety and security features, including extra safe locking doors, security checks to come in and out of the property, and more. There’s a thorough vetting process with who is and who isn’t allowed to come into the building.
Plus, assisted living communities typically have extra safety features for their residents, like more accessible rooms and bathrooms and consistently flat surfaces to make it easier to keep as much mobility as possible. There is also furniture, cabinets and dressers, and more designed with accessibility and senior ease in mind- something that can’t be said for just your average house.
It might not be the same as being on your own and being in your own home, but you can rest easy in the fact that assisted living in Oceanside is made specifically for your benefit.
2.) There is around the clock staff support.
One of the best things about living in assisted living is the around the clock staff support. Our well-trained, 24-hour staff is here to help you at any given moment, no matter what it is that you might need. From getting snacks to getting help with everyday tasks, our staff is there to assist you with whatever it is that you need.
The best art? If you have any kind of medical emergency, then our staff is right there to help and provide assistance – no trying to get to the Emergency Room or to your personal care provider yourself. We can make sure that you’re okay and take action if needed with the help of our physicians and nurses.
3.) You won’t need to change your home as your needs change.
Unlike other retirement centers, assisted living communities often do not make you change your apartment as your needs change. Should you require more or less help in your day to day life, then more often than not, you’ll be allowed to stay in the home you’ve grown accustomed to, and your care can be adjusted.
The only exception to this rule is the possibility of memory care. Should you need to move from assisted living into a memory care community, then the retirement center will often move you to a different wing with extra security features. However, if no kind of memory care communities are needed, then you can feel secure in that your home will stay your home for the entirety of your time in assisted living.
4.) There are a lot of perks that come with assisted living.
There are actually many great perks when you decide to live in assisted living that many people don’t know about! When you find out about everything that we offer here at our assisted living in Oceanside, it might just change your mind.
The biggest of these perks is having your housekeeping done for you. Yes, you heard that right! Living in assisted living means that you get help with things like cleaning, laundry, and more. All of your least favorite chores around your home are a thing of the past in an assisted living center, because our helpful and dedicated staff are here to take care of it for you.
Plus, you don’t have to worry about food. Many seniors struggle with food insecurity, and that couldn’t be farther from the truth here in assisted living. You’ll be provided with three meals a day, unlimited snacks, and more. The best part? You don’t have to cook it or clean it up yourself; that’s something else that our amazing staff will handle for you! Great, right?
5.) You still get to have your own space.
Moving to assisted living doesn’t mean that you have to fully give up your sense of independence. You will still have your own apartment area and your own space that you can decorate however you’d like. The only difference is that you don’t have to be the one responsible for keeping it clean all the time, and that’s a huge plus.
6.) You get to try new things that you might not have been able to before.
One of the best things about senior homes and retirement centers is the fact that you get to try new things that you might not have had access to before. Painting classes, cooking classes, yoga, and tai chi are all things offered here at our assisted living in Oceanside and at other retirement centers across the country. These classes provide you with a unique and fun way to try things that are outside of your comfort zone in a way that you might not have been able to experience before.
