Taking Grandma to the Pound: Why You Shouldn't Feel Guilty About Assisted Living Centers

Jun 28, 2008
For years there has been a bad taste in people's mouths over the concept of nursing homes. We avoid the dreary facilities not wishing to see elderly people, once so young, vibrant, and hopeful, languishing, unable to move, with little memory left of who they are and what they are doing there. Of course you'd feel guilty leaving a parent of a grandparent there. Who wouldn't?

It's natural to feel uneasy and selfish considering a care facility, especially if that parent or grandparent still has full control over either mind or body, yet requires some assistance in performing daily activities. But the fact remains that you have a busy life, a family of your own to look after, and you simply don't have the time or energy to give your elderly loved one the care he or she needs.

The good news is there really is no need to feel guilty. Elderly assisted living centers in Henderson are a far cry from the depressing stereotype of a nursing home you have in your mind. Elderly assisted living centers in Henderson are not just an out of the way place for elderly people to be parked and neglected until they give up and die. They are specifically designed to increase the quality of life, and encourage the independence and dignity you'd hate to see grandma give up. Elderly assisted living centers in Henderson are typically very non intrusive. They offer assistance with daily physical activities without pressing unwanted service, health care, and medication upon residents like nursing homes, and have therapy programs created to help sharpen intellect and retain memory capacity.

Elderly assisted living centers in Henderson obviously have a goal to care for the physical and mental health of their residents, but they also want their residents to have fun, as having fun and laughter are some of the best therapies to stave off physical and mental deterioration. Most elderly assisted living centers in Henderson have a full agenda of games, social activities, crafts, day trip outings, and parties for residents to enjoy if they choose to. Many elderly assisted living centers in Henderson have on-site barber shops and salons, spas, and fitness centers, and of course Nevada wouldn't be Nevada if there weren't casinos and gaming centers in Henderson's elderly assisted living centers.

The apartments themselves in elderly assisted living centers in Henderson may give you something to be jealous of rather than feel guilty over. They have kitchens for those residents who choose to cook for themselves, large closets for storage space, and spacious bed and bathrooms. Each room has an individual climate control to suit the needs of each resident, and each room is fitted with an emergency call button in case assistance is required any time day or night.

Far from being a prison, elderly assisted living centers in Henderson provide a way for your loved one to live happily, independently, socially, and well cared for. Signing Grandma up may be the nicest thing you ever do for her.
