Supervised Independent Living is a new opportunity for aging adults and offers them the freedom, flexibility, and convenience of living independently, but with the advantage of having to opt for personalized care services. They can continue engaging in their preferred lifestyle while having support anytime every day. These communities provide around-the-clock supervision and access to services and amenities that allow them to lead fulfilling lives.
Thanks to supervised independent living, residents don’t have to worry about grocery shopping, preparing meals, cooking, and washing up afterward. Discovery Village At Melbourne offers restaurant-style dining, complete with waitstaff and menu choices. This means that residents can enjoy delicious, nutritious meals in a comfortable setting without worrying about preparation or cleanup. Residents have the chance to choose their food, eat at their own pace, and converse with friends. The experience is designed to feel like a normal restaurant outing, with servers providing assistance.
Studies have shown that the dining experience can provide social and nutritional benefits. Residents often report feeling more connected to their community and enjoying improved mental health after joining the dining program.
Private dining rooms
Aging adults have the opportunity to live in a supervised independent living community that offers private dining rooms. These communities provide seniors with a sense of independence while still offering them the support they need. Private dining rooms offer residents the chance to socialize with their friends and family while enjoying a delicious meal.
As we age, many of us want to stay in our homes for as long as possible. For some, this means finding a way to live independently – and that often includes having access to good food.
Independent living communities typically have an on-site dining hall where residents can enjoy a meal any time they like. This is a huge perk for those who want to eat on their schedule rather than following the set times and menus of a traditional nursing home.
The food at an independent living community is typically professionally-cooked, fresh, and healthy. There’s always a variety of options available, including vegetarian and gluten-free dishes. Plus, there are always plenty of snacks and drinks on hand so residents can graze whenever they please.
When most people think about professional chefs, high-end restaurants with white tablecloths and expensive wine lists. But there’s a whole other world of professional cooking out there – one that’s accessible to anyone, regardless of age or income.
Professional chefs can help make that happen by preparing healthy meals for you regularly. With the help of a professional chef, you can enjoy delicious, healthy meals without breaking the bank.
When you’re no longer able to drive, getting around can be a challenge. That’s where our Connections transportation services come in. Independent living retirement communities typically offer transportation services for you to run errands, get to doctor appointments, and more. This service can be a real lifesaver for seniors who want or need to stay independent.
What kinds of transportation services are available in independent living communities? Typically, the community will have a van or bus that you can use to get around. In addition, many communities offer door-to-door service, which is great for those who don’t feel comfortable using public transportation.
