As "baby boomers" age into retirement in unprecedented numbers, availability of housing suitable to their needs is becoming problematic. Assisted living facilities, sometimes identified as ALF communities, are relatively new alternative residential options becoming popular among active seniors. The skilled staff, including practical nurses, of ALFs do not provide the full spectrum of services available at more costly skilled nursing rehabilitation centers (SNFs) or continued care retirement communities (CCRCs). But “behind-the-scenes” assistance at ALFs with "activities of daily living," or ADLs, enables seniors to get out and enjoy life to the fullest extent possible. Such services can include chauffeured transportation to health care facilities or entertainment/recreational venues, administering scheduled medication, meal preparation and housekeeping.

Another advantage of ALFs is that some elder residents may only temporarily be in need of assisted living services while they recover from surgery or an illness. Soon temporary ALF residents transition back to their family home or independent living apartment to complete their recovery with the aid of in-home residential senior care professionals. Hattiesburg, Mississippi ALFs are reasonably priced, ranging from a minimum of approximately $2,050 up to $4,050 and average $2,400. In Mississippi, the assisted living residential option fees may be paid for privately or a long-term insurance plan. Medicare, Medicaid waiver or the Veteran’s Administration may also cover aspects of ALF expenses.

The small city of Hattiesburg, population 50,000, located in the southern portion of Mississippi, is the county seat of Forrest County. Prevailing weather conditions are sultry and humid in the summer (average temperatures in the mid-90s Fahrenheit) but the winters are mild. Founded in the 1880s by Scottish-Irish immigrants attracted by the rich, virgin pine forest resources of the area, Hattiesburg is rich in history and culture. The town’s founder William Hardy, named it in honor of his wife Hattie. ALF seniors in the area enjoy strolling the Downtown Historic District which is where the varied architecture of late 19th century residences has been lovingly preserved. The Hattiesburg Zoo, sheltering an eclectic menagerie including jaguars, macaws, ostriches, zebras and howler monkeys, features many landscaped pathways and picnic areas. Every February, the annual Soul Food Event is held in the Historic Hattiesburg Train Depot and features the "Cook-Off" in which Hattiesburg soul chefs share their delicious dishes (but not the secret recipes). Local musicians enliven the festivities. Also downtown, window shoppers will find an interesting mix of shops and boutiques. Perhaps the most unique is the Watermelon Patch featuring the best watermelons and peaches nestled among designer shoes and accessories.

The knowledgeable staff at Twin Oaks Senior Center, 701 West Pine Street, can provide information on senior activities in and around Hattiesburg as well as hot lunches, transport and much more.
