When many people think of making a move to a new residence, spring is often the first season that comes to mind. But winter, even with the cold, ice, and snow, is also a good time to consider moving.
Winter brings plenty of hazards, whether it’s illness in the form of colds and the flu, or COVID-19, or slick roads covered in ice and snow. Even heading outside into the cold weather can bring a shiver.
The other side of that is that isolation is also really hard for many people, especially seniors who miss their loved ones and friends. Riding out winter indoors can be a lonely option for many people.
But there might also be a way out of the predicament. Moving to a senior living community in winter such as Bellaire at Stone Port is a great option for many people. The benefits include:
—Living in a safe, secure, and friendly community of people of similar age and interests
—Access to quality care every day
—Everyday needs are met without leaving your residence
Why Move in Winter?
A top reason to move to a community such as Bellaire at Stone Port is safety. As you are aware, falling in winter is a danger in icy, snowy conditions. The National Institute on Aging reports that one in three people age 65 or older fall each year. With winter increasing those risks of falling, a safe community makes sense.
One of the best things about moving into a senior living community is you no longer have maintenance work on your home. We do all the maintenance, shoveling of snow, and other work for you.
Best of all, in the event that you may experience a health scare or emergency, we have medical experts on staff to assist you.
Emphasis on Safety
We make the safety of our residents a top priority. Especially in COVID-19, our testing and safety protocols are designed to keep our residents, staff, and visitors both safe and healthy.
It’s another reason a winter move makes sense. The combination of safety protocols, expert and comfortable care, on-site activities, and other benefits will bring you the peace of mind you’re looking for in this season. Think of it as taking charge of your life and living your best life.
