Benefits to a Small Senior Living & Assisted Care Facility
There are many benefits to living in a smaller facility, here are just a few!
- More staff per resident
No matter the facility, you are probably looking for quality health care. Smaller assisted living homes can provide more time caring for each resident.
- Treated as a person instead of a number
With smaller assisted living homes, all residents and caregivers have an opportunity to know each other on a first name basis.
- Better quality of life
A study done by the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society measured 11 different aspects like quality of life, self-reported health, emotional well-being and satisfaction over a two-year period.The researchers found the quality of care at the smaller nursing home at least equaled and even exceeded in some areas the quality of the larger one.
- Small, close-knit community
Opportunity for closer relationships with staff and residents because residents get to same the same faces each day.
- More Home-like
With a smaller, custom senior living community, there is a different feel than a larger facility. The community may feel more like a comfy home rather than a large, unfriendly hospital.
