Get Started with Senior Living

The Crossings at Wescott Plantation stands out when compared to other communities. Not only is it the newest senior living community in Summerville, but its continuum of care offers quality lifestyle options without a large up-front financial commitment.

If you are having trouble making the transition to a senior living community, you aren’t alone. In fact, many people struggle with this impactful life decision. When it comes to the transition to senior living, lots of questions can arise. When is it the right time? How will my adult children respond? Will I receive the care I and/or my spouse need(s)? Will I be comfortable and happy?

Experiencing the realization that it is acceptable to have these questions is a logical first step. After you’ve accepted the topic, you can have a sensible conversation with yourself (and your family).

Start By Being Realistic

Before you can answer any of the vitally important questions about senior living, it’s critical to be realistic with yourself and your situation. For example, if you and your spouse aren’t feeling physically or emotionally secure at your home, perhaps it’s time to start thinking about independent living. Independent living offers the freedom and independence of home with the security and lack of responsibility of an apartment.

Consider What’s Next

Another aspect of making the decision about senior living is weighing what could happen. Beyond the attraction of a simpler life, one of the best aspects of moving to an independent living community like The Crossings is the security of being covered for what’s next in life on one campus.

Sometimes, people’s health can decline quickly and without warning. Feeling confident that you or your spouse will be cared for in an assisted living situation is something no one should take lightly. Even if you (or your parents) are past the independent living stage and currently in an assisted living environment, it’s important to consider what could happen. Memory loss can occur quickly, so take advantage of living in a senior community with memory care services readily available. Forward thinking could play a role in a seamless transition when it counts the most.

Find the Community that Fits Your Needs

If you do decide to make the move to a senior living community, do your best to find one that suits you and your family’s needs. Communities come in all shapes and sizes, and offer varying levels of services and amenities.
