Considering making the move to a senior living community, but have some questions that need answering before doing so? Read the answers to some of the FAQs we get at Mariposa and find out the information you need to make the most suitable decision.
Is Independent Living or Assisted Living More Suitable for Me?
When deciding between active independent living and assisted living, ask yourself the following questions:
- Do you have any medical or health conditions that require constant monitoring?
- Do your mobility restrictions mean that you require help with daily living tasks, such as bathing, grooming, and dining?
- Do you require ambulation and transfer assistance to get about your daily life?
If you answered yes to one or more of the above questions, assisted living will suit your needs better. Independent living is ideal for residents who are in relatively good health but would like the convenience and security a senior living community can offer.
Is There a Difference Between Senior Living Communities and Nursing Homes?
In a word: yes. Some individuals may be apprehensive about making the move to a senior living community because of the impression they have of nursing homes. Seen as drab and dreary places, our supportive living community at Mariposa is the exact opposite. Here, you can find resort-style living where each resident has their own private apartment as well as access to shared amenities that include a fitness center, games room, dining rooms, art studio, and more.
What Are the Safety Measures in Place to Protect Residents?
At Mariposa, we have implemented a range of safety measures throughout our community, designed to safeguard our residents’ wellbeing and security. These include:
- Regularly sanitized common areas, reducing the chances of developing infections from an unclean environment
- A 24/7 security presence, ensuring that only authorized visitors are allowed onsite
- Emergency call systems situated in every apartment home
- … and more!
