Despite the great lifestyle at a retirement resort, many seniors worry that moving away from home means losing touch with family and friends. It’s important to keep loved ones in a retirement community involved in your family’s life. Ensure your loved one enjoys a balance of active senior living and keeping up with life outside the retirement community.
Join in the Activities: At a retirement resort, residents constantly have something fun to do. Whether it’s on-site events like games, classes, or movies, or off-site trips for fun shopping, shows, or tourist destinations, there’s always a lot going on. Encourage your loved one and yourself to stay active by occasionally joining your loved one in their favorite activities. You’ll stay engaged in their life while you enjoy each other’s company and have fun.
Plan Meals: Residents at retirement resorts enjoy great cooking from professional chefs at every meal. To keep your loved one involved in your life, set up a regular monthly lunch date and join them for their meal. For special occasions, take your loved one out to dinner with family and friends.
Pick Up the Phone: We live in a world of text messages and email, but most seniors still enjoy the excitement of a phone call. Plan an hour every other weekend for chatting, and keep track of exciting events in your family’s lives to share. It’s fun to pass the phone around so your whole family can say hello.
