Senior Living Community Life: Retaining Choice and Independence

Share this:

Home is far more than a physical place. It’s a feeling of belonging, security, and companionship. Although it’s true that your home is a reflection of you, it’s important to remember that it does not completely define you. Whether you live in the city or the country, in a studio apartment or a sprawling villa, you’re still you. And when you decide to move to a senior living community, you’re still you.

Some older adults fear they’ll lose independence and choice if they move to a senior living community. But communities like Wentworth Senior Living are intentionally designed to extend choice, independence, and a sense of belonging to seniors.

At WSL, we begin by helping you develop a customized plan.

This plan meets your personal and healthcare needs while allowing you to dictate what you want your day to look like. Whether you’re just ready to stop tackling household tasks or you need medical assistance, WSL meets you where you are today. If you need increasing or changing support over time, we’re able to adapt and provide it. We allow you to remain in—and part of—the community for as long as you choose.

Then we shape our programming around your hobbies, preferences, and existing lifestyle.

Daily activities aren’t regimented or required. You have the freedom to decide how you want to participate. There are fun activities like music and movies, as well as enrichment and educational programming. At WSL, you’re given the unique opportunity to explore new hobbies or passions within the walls of your home.

And finally, we offer plenty of options in our housing, dining, and all other on-property services.

Our living spaces include common amenities, but truly become “home” once you supply your personal furnishings and decorative touches. Our menu changes daily and our restaurant-style meals provide the perfect opportunity to recharge.

The greatest benefit of a senior living approach is its ability to flex and adapt to each resident’s lifestyle, preferences, and needs over time. At WSL, we want to help you retain your independence and ensure that no matter where you are in life, you’re still you.
