When your loved one needs help with daily routines such as dressing, bathing and household chores, but does not need full-time medical care, a senior personal care community can be the perfect solution. A personal care community, such as the Abramson Center’s Mildred Shor Inn, can also be a great way to ensure that your loved one continues to have social and recreational opportunities available.
Help with Activities of Daily Living
As we get older, it may be harder to keep up with household chores. Senior personal care services relieve residents of having to worry about things such as laundry, cooking and cleaning. At the Mildred Shor Inn, residents enjoy housekeeping, laundry and linen service, and restaurant-style meals, which frees up time to enjoy favorite hobbies and activities instead.
If a resident needs assistance with dressing and grooming, staff is available to provide help as necessary or beneficial to the resident’s daily routine. All care plans are developed to meet each individual’s unique needs and additional services such as managing incontinence, medication management, showering and bathing assistance, extra cognitive support and diagnosis-related nursing services are available as needed.
At the Mildred Shor Inn, beauty and barber services, dry cleaning and room service can all be arranged at additional cost.
Social and Recreational Activities
Isolation is also another concern for many older adults and their loved ones and remaining socially engaged has shown to be incredibly beneficial to both mental and physical health. Senior personal care communities offer organized recreational activities that can help keep residents active. Art classes, educational lectures, music programs, and outings are just some of the many opportunities offered at the Mildred Shor Inn. Additionally, if residents enjoy an activity that is not normally offered, recreation coordinators are on hand to help make sure that the resident can still find ways to participate in that hobby.
If you think senior personal care services sounds like the perfect fit for your loved one, call Abramson Care Advisors at 215-371-3400. A senior care expert is available free, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to help you find the best solution for both your loved one and you.
