There are many beliefs that are widely accepted about Healthcare and Senior Living that just aren’t true. Many are simple myths that are passed from generation to generation with little-to-no fact to support them, yet they are accepted as truth. Don’t base an important decision, such as choosing a Senior Living Community, on common MYTHconceptions.
Let’s Bust Some Senior Living Myths!
Myth 1: “I only live here a few years, right?”
Truth: The average person thrives 7 HEALTHY years longer in a planned senior community than if they were living on their own!
Myth 2: “Long Term Care Insurance is only for Nursing Homes”
Truth: Most policies offer an “Assisted Living Rider” that will cover a portion of your fees.
Myth 3: “I’m not sick enough to move into Assisted Living”
Truth: Healthy, well-capable people move into Assisted Living often! Socially driven needs are very common in Assisted Living settings.
Myth 4: “All you do is play Bingo!”
Truth: Travel Clubs, Ladies Day Out, Guys night out, Upper Supper Club, Lifelong Learning Programs, and Happy Hour are all regularly planned social events at our senior living communities!
Myth 5: “I’ll be disconnected from my family and friends”
Truth: Living on a senior living campus doesn’t change the ability to see your family or friends.
Myth 6: “I’ve got time, I’ll wait.”
Truth: Waiting could hinder your chances on moving how and where you want.
