You’ll find that seniors stay far more independent, live longer and remain healthier when they continue to remain active. According to the staff at Mayo Clinic, staying active helps to control weight, combat health problems, such as diabetes or heart disease, fights depression, increases energy and promotes a more restful sleep. When the alternative of assisted living for the elderly in Tampa is the choice, there’s plenty of activity, yet not the stress and overburden of living alone. Unlike a nursing home, assisted living offers far more independence, plenty of activities and companionship of others, which encourages the senior to join in with the fun. Unlike many home environments, our assisted living for the elderly in Tampa, Fl has beautiful grounds, which gives the senior a safe area to walk.
Besides walking, other outdoor activities are available. Just soaking up the sunshine at this sunny Tampa, Fl assisted living center can improve the health of anyone, including seniors. The body requires sunshine to produce vitamin D, which is necessary to absorb calcium and maintain bone density. Vitamin D provides protection from hypertension, autoimmune diseases, osteoporosis and even cancer. Too frequently seniors don’t leave the house when living alone. Those in nursing homes often don’t have the opportunity to soak up the Florida rays. The freedom to enjoy the great outdoors is just one more health benefit this assisted living facility offers.
If you’re a senior living alone, you may find it difficult to prepare a meal or not have the energy to do it three times a day. Those who are on special diets may find preparing meals to match their doctor’s orders that are still nutritious can often find it difficult to accomplish. Our assisted living for the elderly facility in Tampa, Fl offers nutritious meals to help keep you healthier. However, if you want to spend some time by yourself or watching “Wheel of Fortune” or other favorite show during the dinner hour, you can use your kitchen area to make your own dinner. It’s also convenient for those afternoon snacks when dinner is just too long of a wait for your appetite.
Our Tampa, Fl facility focuses on offering just the right amount of care to keep you living as independently as possible. If you need some help dressing, that’s not a problem. Someone is always available to help you look your best. We offer assistance in all the daily activities of living so you can remain active and comfortable. If you want a little extra touch of glamour, there’s an onsite beauty parlor at the Tampa, Fl facility to give your spirits a little lift. Gentlemen are welcome for their haircuts too.
