What Keeps Seniors Up at Night?

Posted on February 20, 2018 in Active Aging, Caregiving, Home Care

Recently, we asked our team of experts: What keeps older adults up at night? What has our 95 years of experience taught us?

We’ve found that most seniors are worried about losing their independence - wanting to live in the community, contributing and remaining productive. They want to try new avenues of creativity.

They do not want to be a burden on their children. When they need services, seniors want to receive them in the place they call home. Additionally, they want to know that their care and services will be affordable, high quality and well-managed, and be assured that their savings will last.

Is there a solution to alleviate these worries?

Actually, there are two. For some, the answer is home health and hospicewhich can provide everything from home care to skilled nursing to hospice services in the comfort of one’s own home. For others, who like to know they’ve made the decisions to ensure they have a solid plan in place for their future, the answer is a life plan community.  With a life plan community the security of the safety net provided by the availability of healthcare, coupled with the freedom from not having to manage all the day-to-day tasks that come with homeownership allow for living life to the fullest.

At Ohio Living, our life plan communities have spacious apartment homes and most of the amenities found in many new homes today. More importantly, we offer fitness and wellness programs, fine dining, creative enrichment programs, socializing opportunities, and much, much more. And of course, we take care of all the home maintenance, housekeeping, yard work and snow shoveling.

In addition, we provide on-site home health, hospice and long-term nursing care, rehabilitation, outpatient therapy, assisted living and memory care, eliminating worries about moving elsewhere in the future. With our life care commitment, veterans and church workers honorable service grants, participation in state and federal assistance and insurance programs, our residents have peace of mind and financial security,

Home health and hospice, and life plan communities - two choices to help seniors sleep better at night!
