Making a move to assisted living is a wonderful plan for an aging senior who may need extra support as they move through life. Just because this might be an anticipated move, something the elderly loved one in your life is looking forward to, that doesn’t mean the actual move will be easy, or smooth.
It’s important for people all ages to get exercise regularly. That goes for young children through the elderly, even those aging men and women who might be dealing with chronic health issues, physical infirmities, injuries, or other challenges. Assisted living is a great place for these elderly men and women to not only feel more comfortable and confident in life, but to be able to get the kind of exercise they need, deserve, and often want without worrying. With the assistance of elderly care this can be done.

Stacy was getting stressed. She had been supporting her elderly mother for a while, and the job was wearing her down. She had plenty of other responsibilities, but couldn’t turn her back on her mom, not when she needed help the most. So, she went forth and did the best she could, but it was taking a toll on her health, time, relationships, and life.
We’ve Got Cause for Celebration!!
As always, I hope this finds YOU and YOUR FAMILY safe and in good health! It’s been a busy February between COVID testing, Valentine videos and vaccinations, but we have some great news to share! As of Monday, February 22nd, The Springs is once again COVID FREE.

When was the last time you slipped and fell down? Perhaps you tripped over something you didn’t see in the hallway or the kitchen. Maybe it was a bathroom mishap and you slipped stepping out of the tub.
For most healthy, young, strong adults, even the most seemingly innocuous mishaps are often overlooked and forgotten quickly. That is, if they don’t result in serious injuries.
