One of the many truths about life is that growing old is mandatory for everyone. Most people do not envision spending their remaining years in an expensive nursing home, staring at the walls and having medical staff record their bodily functions. Imagine senior living in Washington DC in a nice place for less money, where residents can live out their lives in peace, with respect and dignity. Family members can have peace of mind knowing their loved one will be accepted regardless of their condition. Long term care insurance is accepted, and clients will not be charged more if their loved one requires a higher level of care.
Senior living in Washington DC provides residents with an opportunity to thrive in small groups living together as a group of eight or less. Caregiver to resident ratio is low, allowing residents to get more individual attention than those living in large institutions. Seniors live in apartments for one low monthly price that includes a large living space, all utilities, all meals prepared for them, Direct Television, and weekly cleaning and laundry services. Senior apartments ensure residents experience independent living, whether they require level 1, 2, and 3 assisted living or hospice care. A variety of indoor and outdoor activities take place daily from worship and prayer services to special off-site outings. Residents enjoy a peaceful and beautiful farm setting complete with animals and crop fields within safe walking distance.
A nursing home alternative, such as Taylor Farm Assisted Living, can provide the same care a nursing home can. An onsite Registered Nurse is available along with a visiting doctor, dentist, podiatrist, physical therapist, and occupational therapist to help with assisted living and hospice care for all residents. Hospice services allow residents to live out their final days in comfort with care and dignity. Seniors with Alzheimer’s and dementia are welcome to stay also. These residents thrive in this environment because staff is trained to help with their condition and find the quiet setting and smaller groups less confusing, stressful, and overwhelming. Although these services are not able to stop the aging process, residents can look forward to growing older with freedom and grace.
