Aging Well: How Senior Living Can Make It Happen

Aging well is a term that means different things to different people. For some it means the freedom to wander and travel, while for others it means spending time doing things you couldn’t do while working or just having the “me” time to relax and enjoy life. But one thing is sure about aging well: It’s much more attainable in senior living, thanks to all that is provided. Take a look!

A safe, secure and accessible environment

As the years go by, safety and security can become challenging for seniors living at home. Managing stairs and steps, doorways and hallways that aren’t designed for mobility aids, and kitchens and baths that make daily life difficult (even dangerous) are just a few of the safety and security concerns.

In senior living, however, safety and security are built in so residents are able to maintain the quality of life they desire. For example, stairs and steps are nonexistent, bathrooms and kitchens meet the highest standards for safety and accessibility and the entire community is designed to enable easy access to common areas as well as apartments. Residents can be assured their homes are also secure and private, and 24/7 security encompasses all areas indoors and outdoors. Find out how we make safety and security part of aging well in our blog, “In Senior Living, Safety and Security Are Part of the Package.”

An emphasis on independence

Aging well and independence go hand-in-hand, so when independence is threatened so too is the possibility of aging well. At One Lincoln Park we get it. Our goal is to not only encourage independence but inspire residents to reach for the stars whether that means traveling the world, increasing knowledge through life-long learning, volunteering for a cause that is dear to them, or taking charge of their health by working out and exercising with friends. Take a more in-depth look at aging well and independence in the article, “Helping The Elderly Remain Independent (Tips For Seniors).”

Diverse and beautiful housing choices

Aging well shouldn’t preclude having different housing choices, but many senior living communities just don’t have much to choose from. At One Lincoln Park, however, residents offer more than 20 floor plans ranging from a comfortable 550 sq. ft. to a more expansive 1,250 sq. ft. available in studio, one- and two-bedroom layouts. In addition, many apartments offer balconies or patios so residents can enjoy the outdoors, as well as luxury features like cathedral ceilings, solarium windows, and walk-in closets that provide ample storage space. Of course each apartment is equipped with a modern kitchen and extra touches like custom cabinets, countertops and flooring are available.

Wellness and socialization are built in

An essential aspect of aging well is staying fit and healthy in mind and body and in the best senior living communities health is prioritized. For example at One Lincoln Park our residents enjoy amenities like state-of-the-art fitness centers, classes like yoga, Zumba and Tai Chi, and onsite wellness options that include a full-service pharmacy and a fully staffed Wellness Center where residents can speak with a nurse, get physician referrals, receive vaccinations, and more.

Another key aspect of aging well is maintaining an active social life, something that can become difficult when living at home. Our residents have so many ways to engage and have fun it’s sometimes hard to choose whether to join a club, play games, go on outings, join in activities like arts and crafts, or just relax and read in the library. For an insider’s look at what we have to offer check out our blog, “The Wellness Amenities Residents at One Lincoln Park Value Most.”

If there is one aspect of aging well in senior living that is truly appreciated it’s the resort-like services that residents enjoy. In our blog, “How to Make an Informed Decision When Choosing a Senior Living Community,” we look at the many services that top the list for our residents including:
