When is Assisted Living the Best Option?
When you or a loved one is having trouble dealing with basic daily tasks, assisted living is a viable solution. In an assisted living community, seniors have access to services and programs that help them accomplish daily activities more efficiently. At Oakmont of Fresno, we offer a welcoming and engaging community for seniors who want more out of their assisted living experience.
What is an Assisted Living Community?
An assisted living community provides daily basic living services for senior residents. These services include assistance with bathing or showering as well as general personal hygiene. Assisted living services typically include housekeeping, laundry, food preparation and other personal aide services like folding clothes and scheduling social appointments.
Assisted living at Oakmont of Fresno features activities and programs dedicated to improving the quality of life for our residents. For example, we organize outings to the surrounding scenic community to provide our seniors with a literal breath of fresh air. We are pleased to be situated in such a verdant and lively community that has plenty of museums, shopping and restaurants. By offering ways for our senior residents to engage with the neighboring community, we hope to improve the quality of life for all of our residents.
Benefits of Assisted Living
When selecting an assisted living community, you want to find a community that provides staff support 24 hours a day, seven days a week. This is critical to help keep your loved ones safe at all times, which is a major benefit of assisted living.
Another benefit of assisted living is in the sense of community that the residents experience. We have created a friendly environment where our residents feel safe and comfortable asking for assistance whenever they need it. This is provided by our highly trained staff, medical professionals and senior care providers.
At our assisted living community in Fresno, our residents are actively engaged in regularly scheduled social programs. We offer opportunities to exercise and be active in the community and the city at large. This is key to helping our seniors maintain mental and physical health.
