How Assisted Living Can Enhance Quality of Life

What comes to mind when you think of “quality of life?” Is it the measurement by which you gauge your happiness? Your health? Your independence? The actual definition of a person’s quality of life is the standard of health, comfort, and happiness experienced by an individual.

At Brickmont Assisted Living, our goal is to provide exceptional services and quality care to enhance the quality of life for residents and ensure families have peace of mind that their loved ones are in excellent hands. If you or a loved one have been wondering if you might benefit from moving to an assisted living community in Georgia, we’re sharing a few ways you can expect your lifestyle and wellness to upgrade.

Social Connection

Living alone can be an isolating experience, especially for older adults, who are more at risk of facing feelings of loneliness due to factors such as:

  • The loss of friends and family
  • Living at a distance from loved ones
  • Health conditions that make leaving home difficult

According to the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, nearly one-fourth of adults over the age of 65 are considered to be socially isolated. 

Fortunately, assisted living can combat these feelings due to the residential style offered. Not only does apartment and cottage-style living create a sense of unity and togetherness among residents, but it offers the chance to meet new people at every corner. Assisted living communities in Georgia also implement plenty of social events and activities to keep residents connected on a daily basis. 

Active Lifestyle

An active lifestyle might seem focused on fitness, but it’s actually a phrase used to describe a lifestyle full of purpose, activities, and passions. When people engage in active lifestyles, they feel a greater sense of fulfillment in their everyday life that drives them to discover new things and focus on creating a positive environment. 

Assisted living communities provide the perfect grounds for an active lifestyle, thanks to the various amenities and activities offered to residents. Not only do these activities and services provide convenience, but they also offer inspiration to connect with hobbies or new interests. 

Increased Independence

There’s a misconception surrounding assisted living, in which people assume they will automatically lose their sense of independence and autonomy once they move in. This couldn’t be further from the truth!

Assisted living communities serve as a tool to maintain independence, especially for adults who need support with Activities of Daily Living (ADLs). By gaining a helping hand with routine tasks, self-care, and other daily responsibilities, residents can explore the things that matter most to them. 

At Brickmont Assisted Living, our communities offer support and conveniences that allow for more opportunities to explore all the moments of joy that life has to offer. Whether a person needs help with medication management or dressing and grooming, our expert staff is here to ensure they receive the respect and assistance they deserve so they can continue to maintain their independence for as long as possible. 

Is It Time for Assisted Living?

If you’re curious if assisted living is the best option for yourself or a loved one, it might be time to take notes of current routines, challenges, and health concerns. If you or a loved one are a senior who lives alone, it’s important to keep track of the daily tasks that have become too difficult to manage by yourself and determine the impact that it’s having on everyday life. 

This can begin with a conversation, so gather close relatives and discuss how assisted living can bring enrichment, social opportunity, and wellness into your lifestyle. 

Brickmont Assisted Living is proud to provide exceptional services and care to Atlanta and its surrounding areas. Our mission is to deliver care with the dignity and respect that older adults deserve to ensure no shortage of opportunities to enhance each resident’s quality of life.
