Reasons To Tour Senior Living Communities During the Holidays

There’s never really a bad time to visit a senior living community to experience firsthand the lifestyle and culture residents enjoy. You can also talk with other families present and get their impressions of the community.

A handful of great reasons to go on a holiday senior living tour include:

You can learn more about the continuum of care.

The Oaks at Bartlett is a great choice for all who are interested in senior living, regardless of where they are on their journey. Visiting a community means you can see the staff in action, get a sense of how happy residents are, sample the dining and experience the community’s culture. You’ll have the opportunity to explore our continuum of care, which includes coverage at the Healthcare Center for assisted living, memory care, skilled nursing, rehabilitation and respite care. 

Senior living communities embrace the holidays.

It’s a great time for senior living communities to decorate for the holidays and host a variety of seasonal activities. Scouting troops come by, school choirs perform, Secret Santas leave unexpected gifts, and goodies are everywhere. You can attend an open house or holiday event at one of the senior living communities and then tour the community afterward if you like.

There’s a chance to beat the seasonal rush.

Senior living communities are busy in January! 

The phones are ringing with families interested in scheduling tours. If you visit before the end of the year, you’ll beat the rush. Besides talking with visiting families, you’ll have the opportunity to meet with team members so they can answer your questions. In addition, you’ll have the first chance to choose from available apartments.

A tour is an opportunity to get to know the residents and their families.

Residents of senior living communities reunite during the holidays, just as your family does. 

Ask the staff to let you talk with some of the residents and their visiting family members as you tour each community. They can provide you or your loved one with valuable insight into whether a community is right for you.

In addition to enjoying the community’s activities and events during this festive time of year, seniors who move during December also benefit from the assistance of family members while they’re in town.
