Assisted living facilities are places where the elderly can live somewhat independent while at the same time still get the medical care and assistance they need. These locations are not like nursing homes where patients need close supervision nor are they intended to provide extensive elderly care. They are however designed to provide safe housing options for senior citizens who are not quite capable of managing their medical needs or who may become confused.
Hamden Assisted Living Facility allows residents to get out and experience the city of Hamden. Some of our residents are members of one or more of the local country clubs and some belong to the historical society. And with wonderful local attractions such as the Eli Whitney Museum, The Freedom Tree, and the Irish Tea Room there are many reasons why our assisted living seniors want to get out and go.
Of course, making a decision on housing arrangements for your loved one is never an easy task and we fully understand this. That is why we recommend that you explore of all your options in and around the Hamden area. Elder care in this region is excellent and with a city so full of life, it is a great place to consider housing your elderly family member so they can get out and enjoy life.
Assisted living is really only an option for those that are almost, but not quite, capable of taking care of themselves. A decision to place a senior into this type of elder care arrangement is something that should be discussed not only by the family and of course the older family member, but with health care providers as well. Everyone should agree on this arrangement prior to signing on with an assisted living facility.
Most seniors like the idea of assisted living because it allows them to maintain their independence for a while longer. It also allows family members to feel better knowing that a professional health care provider will be looking after their elderly family members in their absence. It is also more difficult for seniors to hide problems when the same people are checking in on them every day or a few times a week. This kind of peace of mind is something that everyone needs when choosing a living arrangement for an elderly relative. Especially if that individual is not in need of round the clock nursing care but is becoming a bit too feeble minded to live on their own.
