New Year, New Home: Benefits of Transitioning to Senior Living in 2024

A new year marks a time for reflection and new beginnings. For older adults living at home alone, it’s also a great time to evaluate your current living situation and explore how you want to spend the rest of your retirement years.

If you or your loved one are looking for senior living options in the Bartlett area, here are some helpful tips to make the transition as smooth as possible in 2024.

Benefits of Senior Living

  • New friendships— Senior living communities are designed with social connection in mind. Shared living spaces, like dining areas, game rooms, and fitness centers, provide a variety of opportunities to build new relationships with neighbors. At The Oaks at Bartlett, our scheduled community activities and events allow residents to participate in a variety of engaging programs, like crafts or outings, while making friends with other residents who share the same interests.
  • Care-free lifestyle— Senior living communities like The Oaks at Bartlett manage everyday house chores and yard work so that older adults can enjoy a life of leisure and convenience. At The Oaks, the convenience of living here extends beyond just home maintenance. We provide ample amenities and services just outside residents’ front doors, including a 24-hour emergency system, fresh meals, complimentary transportation, and an on-site beauty salon and mini mart, to name a few.
  • Easy access to care services—The Oaks is a Life Plan Community, which means we offer different types of senior living communities to accommodate the varying needs of seniors. We provide top-quality care at every level, including assisted living, memory care, skilled nursing care, rehabilitation, and respite care, allowing residents to age-in-place as care needs progress.
  • Healthier mind and body—Residents of senior living communities have access to nutritious meals to enjoy alongside neighbors, around-the-clock healthcare assistance when it’s needed, and opportunities to stay physically active through fitness programs and more. All of these helps contribute to a healthier, happier lifestyle.

Questions to Ask When Touring Potential Communities

As you explore communities in your area, it is important that you schedule in-person visits. Ask questions to help determine if a particular community would be a good fit for your lifestyle. If possible, talk to other residents about their experiences. Here are just a few questions to ask as you consider different living options.

  • What is my first impression of the community?
