Making the decision
Is The Residence at Littledale for me?
You may find yourself asking, “Is living in a senior’s residence for me?”
We understand that this is not a question that is easily answered. And it may take some time. It’s a deeply personal decision that can have people considering loss of independence, dignity, and their normal day-to-day lives.
When you live here, however, you’re still the same person you were before. Yes, it’s a change of lifestyle. But that doesn’t mean it’s the end of your independence or a sign of your age. If anything, the amenities we provide can greatly improve your quality of life and leave you feeling re-energized.
It also doesn’t mark an undignified move. Maybe it’s for medical issues, the convenience of no longer having to maintain a house, to meet people your age, or to be more involved in a community? Whatever the time, there are many great reasons for deciding to live here.
Questions to ask yourself.
If you’re considering becoming a resident, ask yourself:
• Could extra help in specific areas of my life help me be more independent?
• Does living in my home put my safety at risk?
• Has my decision-making ability concerning my health and well-being changed?
• Do I need some assistance managing my finances?
•Is it just time for a change?
