As we age, the question of senior care, living accommodations, and community eventually become topics of conversations. Many seniors choose to move to senior living communities as they age, not because they need daily assistance – although that is available – but because they are looking for a place where they can be active, meet new people, and enjoy their senior years.
For those considering senior living accommodations, Ardenwoods, is a place where seniors can have freedom, independence and the ability to choose the lifestyle that’s right for them. Here are some top reasons why seniors prefer community living, especially at Ardenwoods:
New friends and activities abound
Making new friends and becoming involved in social groups and activities goes hand-in-hand with living in a senior living community. Ardenwoods senior living community is located in Arden, North Carolina, just 15 minutes from the quaint towns of Asheville and Henderson. With sweeping views of western North Carolina’s Appalachian Mountains, Ardenwoods offers resort-style senior living where aging adults can feel safe and secure while enjoying a dynamic and active lifestyle.
Within our lush, 48-acre campus, seniors have access to a fitness center, woodland nature trails, a heated indoor swimming pool, salon and spa services, a creative arts studio and more. A complete calendar of cultural, recreational and social opportunities provides you with fun and engaging activities both on campus and in the towns surrounding Arden.
Unique shopping, wonderful dining, exceptional cultural venues and museums, and an ever-changing lineup of fun and engaging local events just minutes away, so there is no room for seniors to feel isolated or to become bored.
A focus on health and wellness
Every resident at Ardenwoods senior living community has access to a health assistant who helps you plan and reach your fitness and health goals. The assistant works with you to create a customized fitness plan through exercises, classes, workshops, talks, and literature. Should you need to schedule health and medical appointments or require help coordinating paperwork and transfers for a hospital stay, we are here to assist.
As your health care needs evolve, you have access to qualified and approved home-health caregivers, or you can transfer to Heather Glen, Ardenwoods’ on-campus assisted living community, which provides multiple levels of care.
Enjoy nutritious food
Seniors who live in senior living communities typically have access to dining plans. At Ardenwoods, we go one step further by providing nutrition assistance and executive chefs who work with each resident to identify any special needs and set up wellness goals. Our diverse menus use produce from local farmers, and our “from scratch” dining options are a vital part of our commitment to meet the health and wellness needs of aging adults.
Ardenwoods’ healthy and delicious menu options include such resident favorites as a Grilled Corned Beef Reuben, a Breakfast Anytime Two-Egg Omelet, our own Ardenwoods Chicken Salad as well as a wide selection of a’ la carte entrees, sides and desserts.
Seniors who were not eating well before moving into a senior living community such as Ardenwoods find they have more energy and their health often improves after a short period of regularly eating nutritious meals. And to top it off, you’ll have no more worries about grocery shopping or cooking every day.
No more home repairs or yard work
Ardenwoods offers multiple independent living options, such as single-family homes, townhomes and apartments, as well as assisted living. An initial entrance payment and monthly fees cover senior living accommodations, services and amenities, which are customized to your lifestyle and needs. No longer will you have to worry about yard maintenance, home maintenance, items like shoveling the driveway or handling unexpected home repairs and emergencies. Less house work means more time to enjoy life.
Feel safe and secure
We know that the word security means different things to different people. For some, it’s feeling physically safe in their environment. For others, it’s knowing friends are nearby. Sometimes it’s the relief and confidence of having a solid financial plan for the future—a plan that includes quality health services.
Ardenwoods is designed to make you feel secure in every way. That includes a safe, tight-knit community that offers many opportunities to form deep and lasting friendships. It also includes our program that allows you to customize your living accommodations and transfer to the appropriate level of care—such as licensed in-home healthcare or on-campus assisted living care.
Seniors who make the move to senior living communities often find their relationships with loved ones improve greatly. Time spent together can now be centered around doing things you both enjoy.
Ardenwoods is the ideal setting for independent senior living. But don’t just take our word for it, check out what our residents have to say. To find out how Ardenwoods senior living community can serve you, get in touch with us at 828-684-7330.
