If you’re considering a senior living community, you’re probably wondering how senior living residents spend their day.
The easy answer is that residents spend their days doing whatever they want.
The only difference is that senior living communities offer residents various services and amenities to fill their days. Residents in senior living communities like Seasons Senior Living enjoy hair and nail salons, housekeeping and laundry services, delicious meals, and spacious apartments.
Senior living communities are designed to provide older adults with a convenient, safe, and active lifestyle.
Let’s look at a day in the life of a senior living resident.
Mornings in Senior Living
Whether you’re an early bird who catches the worm type of person or you love sleeping in, the choice is entirely up to you. If you need assistance with activities of daily living such as bathing, dressing, toileting, and grooming, a trained staff member is there to help you get ready for your day.
Enjoy a delicious breakfast in the dining room with friends, a solo cup of coffee, or a leisurely brunch in your apartment.
Some residents start their day with fitness, followed by a healthy breakfast or quick juice from the juice bar.
End your morning with a walk through the gardens, meditation class, or check the afternoon activities schedule.
Afternoons In Senior Living
If you envision a bunch of residents sitting around with nothing to do, you’re in for a surprise! Senior living communities have activity directors who keep residents busy with various afternoon activities, including:
- Music therapy
- Planned activities
- Social events
- Recreational activities
Spend your afternoon enjoying lunch with other residents, taking a yoga class, or enjoying one of the many clubs and activities. Wrap up your afternoon with a nap before dinner.
Evenings in Senior Living
Enjoy a delicious meal in the formal dining room, going over the day’s events with other residents, or invite a family member to dinner. Or, take advantage of a planned trip to a local restaurant.
After dinner, participate in other social activities or a casual evening winding down with friends. You may want to wind down by reading a book or watching TV in the comfort of your apartment.
Weekends in Senior Living
Normally you would spend your weekend completing household chores, grocery shopping, or with home repairs and maintenance projects.
Not in a senior living community.
Senior living communities offer residents a maintenance-free and easygoing lifestyle with the following services:
- Weekly housekeeping services
- Laundry services
- Medication management
- Transportation to shopping areas
- Daily meals, beverages, and snacks
You’ll spend your weekends doing the things you love!
Visit family members, participate in weekend social events, or enjoy time with new friends.
Wrap-up and Next Steps
Residents in senior living communities have the luxury of enjoying life without the day-to-day responsibilities of home maintenance and everyday tasks.
