LIVING AT HOME VS. ASSISTED LIVING
|Sense of Community:
||Living at home alone can be isolating for a senior. You may feel lonely or miss participating in activities with others.
||Every day, there are many opportunities to interact and socialize with others.
||Chores and basic household tasks can become more difficult and unmanageable with age, making it more difficult to remain at home alone.
||We provide full-service housekeeping and maintenance for all of our residents, at no extra charge, including laundry services.
||Seniors living on their own are less likely to want to cook for themselves, and are oftentimes not eating a balanced diet, leaving them nutritionally-challenged.
||At The Pinnacle of Greenville, well-balanced, home-style meals are served in a cheerful, family-style dining room, and nutritional snacks and drinks are served daily.
||Many seniors who live alone may worry about their safety and security, in the event of an emergency.
||The Pinnacle of Greenville provides you with support 24-hours a day, and has a dedicated secured memory care unit.
||Many seniors may neglect needed physical fitness, which can lead to more serious health issues in the future.
||Our activities director keeps a slate of activities and group events scheduled for our residents’ entertainment and fitness.
||The worries and stress of independent living, and of being a burden on family can leave seniors feeling exhausted or unhappy.
||We provide all the daily help and support your loved one needs so they can gain a new sense of self-esteem and independence.
||Health needs become more complex as we age, and managing your health and wellness can become difficult to do alone.
||We help to support seniors in monitoring and managing their health and wellness in a variety of ways and for various conditions.
