Senior Independent Living

Senior Couple Assisted Living

Senior Independent Living

Getting older sometimes means that you might need a bit of extra help with things, or to be able to do things safely. However, that doesn’t mean that you need you to give up your independence or rely on other people to do everything for you. Living independently is important, and at Hidden Lakes, we have a range of options for senior citizens to choose from when the time comes and that bit of extra support is needed.

Independent Living Vs. Assisted Living

It can be challenging to understand the different options available when choosing what support you or a family member needs. We have put together an independent living vs. assisted living explanation so that you can be sure you are choosing the right one.

Independent living is designed for seniors who are still very active and want to be part of a community. They may wish to live with others in a facility; however, the way they live their life is more or less up to them. They can go about their life in the way they want, but with high-quality support to lean on when needed.

Assisted living is designed for those seniors who need more assistance to live a fulfilling life. They may still be very active, but they will usually require more structure and support. This can be with bathing and grooming, meals, managing money, socializing, shopping, and medication. Staff will usually be available 24/7 to ensure safety, and will offer support that is tailored to the individual.

It is crucial to assess which is required because if the wrong one is chosen, the person may become frustrated or not be able to manage safely.

The Hidden Lakes Independent Living Center

At the Estates of the Hidden Lakes Independent Living Center, we have a range of facilities available to meet the needs of everyone as they get older. Whether you are looking at independent or assisted living, we can offer tailored support in a comfortable and caring setting.

With all of our facilities on one campus, we pride ourselves on creating a welcoming community where people can grow old while still living their best life. As people’s needs increase, they won’t need to find a new home. We can simply assess their level of need and alter the package of care that we deliver. This may mean moving to a different room or building to ensure the support is available, but the community and facilities will remain the same.

Facilities on Offer at Hidden Lakes

Apart from the fantastic staff that we have on hand to deliver expert care and support, we also have various on-campus facilities that make Hidden Lakes feel like a home. With comfortable bedrooms, dining areas, activities, religious services, and medical facilities, we offer everything you could need all in one place.

Give us a call today, and we can talk through the options or book you in for a tour of our Independent Living Center.
