Learn more about Assisted Living at CedarStone and all its benefits.

Physical Benefits of Assisted Living

Improved nutrition.

For seniors, good nutrition and great food are important, but a welcoming dining experience is just as necessary. All residents of Assisted Living communities get three full meals a day. Residents at a senior living community like CedarStone design and prepare our chef-driven menus. Residents at CedarStone always have options  that meet their dietary needs and satisfy their tastes.

Exercising more often.

The benefits of staying active include keeping blood sugars under control, increasing circulation, and improving heart health. Daily calendars at Assisted Living communities are packed with activities right outside each resident’s door, often including yoga, chair exercises, gardening and more.

Assistance with daily living activities.

The Assisted Living community helps with daily tasks such as bathing, dressing and eating, but it’s important to balance the level of assistance the senior needs and maintaining an optimal level of independence. One of the key benefits of Assisted Living is that seniors can maintain their independence and control while still receiving the care they need to experience a fulfilling lifestyle.

Reduced stress for residents and family.

Residents benefit from the activity and socialization of Assisted Living communities while receiving the round-the-clock support and care they need. Whether the senior lives with the family full time or not, senior living situations can be stressful for any family. In Assisted Living at CedarStone, family members can rest assured their loved one is safe, eating well, socializing, and receiving the care they need in a supportive environment. And should your loved one need additional care, those services can be added to your wellness plan without moving to a different part of the community.

Social Benefits of Assisted Living

Lively social engagements.

As they age, it’s common for seniors to become isolated. Isolation in seniors can result in depression, poor health, mobility problems and more. A major benefit of any senior living community is the opportunity to enjoy the company of peers and interact with staff. Assisted Living residents engage in activities that foster social connection – from arts and crafts to social hours.

Easy access to transportation.

In Assisted Living communities, seniors can go on group outings, go shopping, or visit the doctor’s office with transportation assistance. Many seniors lose the ability or desire to drive, so mobility and social activities can become challenging.

With frequent access to transportation, a fun lifestyle, a caring team, and cutting-edge facilities in beautiful Cedar Falls, IA, CedarStone offers all the assistance your loved one needs to live happily.

From Carefree Living to Assisted Living and Memory Care, we’ll meet their needs wherever they might be in their journey. Contact us today!
