Did you know that 7 out of 10 people will need assisted living care in their lifetime? Florida has the second highest number of assisted living facilities in the United States, second only to California. This makes sense since California has almost twice the population of Florida. In this blog, we will explain what assisted living facilities are, what they offer, and who might benefit from living in one. If you are a senior, please take a moment to read this blog. We think you will be pleasantly surprised!
Assisted living facilities are designed as safe places for seniors to live when they can no longer live alone or simply don’t want to anymore. They provide nursing care, but more importantly, they provide activities and friendships that help seniors maintain an active, healthy lifestyle.
Assisted living facilities are not just for those with health issues nor are they nursing/convalescent homes. They are vibrant communities of seniors enjoying life together. Victoria Landing in Melbourne, FL, is one such community. This article will give you a glimpse at all that Victoria Landing has to offer. Prepare to be impressed!
What Are They?
Assisted living facilities are communities built for seniors. The minimum age requirement to live in these facilities varies. You must be 62 years of age or older to live at Victoria Landing. These facilities allow residents to maintain a level of independence while also having nursing care available as needed. While some facilities may have dual-resident rooms, Victoria Landing offers private, individual apartments that include a living area, bedroom, bathroom, and kitchenette. Of course, couples can share an apartment! Our memory care area offers studios with a bedroom and bathroom.
What Do They Offer?
Victoria Landing offers beautiful water-front living on the shores of the Indian River with a wide variety of amazing amenities! We are licensed and insured. We offer competitive pricing, including a 5% discount on rent to veterans and their spouses. Most importantly, we offer quality service.
Our residents do not have full kitchens in their apartments because we provide three gourmet meals per day. For our residents with medical needs, we offer nursing care that is available 24 hours per day. They can take care of basic needs, such as helping with daily living activities. This includes things like dressing and bathing. They can also help with basic medical needs, such as catheter care and maintenance, conducting nursing assessments, and providing care for post-surgery closed wounds.
We offer a fulfilling and enjoyable social atmosphere to encourage friendship, socialization, and a healthy mental and emotional state. We have a pool, beautiful walking paths, a library, and a fitness center! We also have organized activities available 7 days a week. Do you enjoy board games, movies, or crafts? We have them all. Do you enjoy fishing? The Indian River is a great fishing spot! Whatever your current hobbies are, we encourage you to continue them and introduce them to your new friends at Victoria Landing so they can join in the fun!
