Why the New Year is the Perfect Time to Explore Senior Living

A new year marks a time for reflection and new beginnings. For seniors, it’s also a great time to evaluate your current living situation and explore how you want to spend the rest of your
golden years.

For many older adults, the decision to move into senior living stems from a desire to escape the common challenges of homeownership, like yardwork and home repairs. Living alone becomes increasingly difficult and isolating as you get older, increasing the risk for injury and health problems.

Moving to a senior living community like Vista Grande Villa eliminates the burdens of owning a home and empowers older adults to live a healthy, vibrant life with like-minded neighbors. At VGV, residents have more time to enjoy old hobbies and new passions, foster friendships, and pursue an overall healthier, happier lifestyle.

If you or your loved one are looking for senior living options in the Jackson area, here are some helpful tips to make the transition as smooth as possible in 2023.

Senior Living Options

There are different types of senior living communities to accommodate the varying needs of seniors. At VGV, we offer a close-knit family of continuum care services under one roof, allowing residents to age-in-place as care needs progress.

  • Independent Living
    Independent living is designed for active, healthy older adults who require little or no assistance. At VGV, our IL residents enjoy their own private, comfortable dwellings and manage their own schedules. We take care of the housekeeping, laundry, and yardwork, so you have the freedom to live every day how you want to.
  • Assisted Living
    Assisted living at VGV offers the same maintenance-free services, dining options, and resort-style amenities as independent living communities, but with the added assistance and reassurance of professional, around-the-clock caregivers. Assisted living is a great option for someone who needs some type of assistance with one or more activities of daily living, such as dressing, eating, or showering.
  • Memory Care
    At VGV, our memory care neighborhood is designed especially for residents wit memory loss including Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. Memory care residents receive daily support from our professionally trained, caring staff, easing the burden on family caregivers, and maintaining residents’ dignity.
  • Short-term Rehab
    Our rehab program is a good option to help you regain function following an injury or surgery. We use comprehensive, individualized treatments developed by a multidisciplinary team of skilled nurses and rehab professionals to get you back on your feet as quickly as possible.
  • Long-term Skilled Nursing
    If you have chronic physical or cognitive health problems that require continuous medical care, long-term skilled nursing may be your answer to enhancing your quality of life and independence. Our skilled nursing program provides the most comprehensive level of care found outside a hospital setting, including round-the-clock skilled nursing care, on-call physician, and contracted hospice services.

Questions to Ask When Touring Potential Communities

As you explore communities in your area, it is important that you schedule in-person tours. Ask questions to help determine if a particular community would be a good fit for your lifestyle. If possible, talk to other residents about their experiences. Here are just a few questions to ask as you consider different living options.

  • What is my first impression of the community?
  • What are my options for dining?
  • What sets the community apart from others?
  • How does the community foster a culture of wellness?
  • What is included with the monthly fees?
