Nutrition, physical fitness and positive social experiences all contribute to a one’s ability to lead a healthy and happy life. The challenges of health living only expand as people enter their senior years. As people age, healthy eating can become a chore, physical exercise may not be prioritized and social interaction may decline. Overcoming these challenges is vital for senior adults are to continue living vibrant, radiant lives.
For those who want to continue living an independent lifestyle after retirement, Senior Living communities can take the pressure and guesswork out of healthy living and provide ample opportunities for socialization in a comfortable, home-like setting.
Oak Pointe in Monett is holding the second in a two-part series this February to help the community of Monett, MO, discover resources and information for seniors and caregivers who are searching for a better quality of life and improved care options.
The focus at Oak Pointe is to help residents achieve a full and independent life while supporting any needs they may have. This assistance can include help with personal care, transportation, and reminders or management of medications. And while some seniors require more assistance than others, many choose to transition to an Assisted Living community not because they need personal care, but because they love the services, convenience and companionship of their community over living alone at home.
Along with daily care and assistance with activities, Oak Pointe also employs chefs and kitchen associates who work hard to create a great dining experience. The goal is to balance comfortable, familiar recipes that are also freshly prepared using wholesome ingredients. Meals are shared in a large, central dining area where friends and family can join at any time.
Housekeeping, maintenance, and transportation are just a few of the amenities that all residents at an Oak Pointe community can enjoy. This first-class care allows residents to continue living active lives without worrying about daily chores, or burdening family members with time-consuming tasks such as mowing lawns, grocery shopping and cooking.
Join Oak Pointe Senior Living as we discover the benefits of aging in place while enjoying a worry-free, independent lifestyle. We will also discuss strategies to help start the conversation with your loved ones about the expectations that you have for a vibrant, thriving life after retirement.
The second event in the series, “Assisted Living: It Isn’t What it Used to Be,” will be held on February 23, 2016, from 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. at the Monett Chamber of Commerce (200 E. Broadway).
Lunch will be provided. Please RSVP if you would like to attend either event, or for more information, contact the community at (417) 235-3500.
