Assisted Living Detroit | Holiday Time

Assisted Living in Detroit, MIBaking cookies this holiday season is possible for some seniors in Detroit assisted living facilities.  The holidays are a time in which many of our senior aged loved ones would have normally provided for us a beautiful, delicious meal or two with all of the trimmings and the best baked goods we have ever eaten.  For many seniors, holiday meals and baking for the holidays would be just out of the realm of what they are able to do any longer.   Living alone may have no longer been a safe possibility and now the seniors in our lives require the assistance of those who are professionals in their field and work in assisted living facilities.  The word ‘facility’ can often make these assisted living homes and buildings to feel more clinical and cold than they actually are.  Assisted living communities and neighborhoods are full of companionship, sharing and love.  Many seniors make friends with others in the assisted living communities and are close with the staff that is helping with their daily living assistance needs.  The holidays are a time when people are most neighborly in the assisted living communities.  Most assisted living communities decorate for the holidays and have a very festive feeling.  Volunteers and workers will often get residents together to bake some of their all-time favorite cookies to share amongst each other and bring the community together.

Assisted Living in Detroit | Motor City Seniors

Staying active as you get older is important and the residents of assisted living facilities in Detroit are fully aware of this fact.  If you don’t move it you lose it.  Mobility, flexibility and stability are all dependent on the muscles and body remaining physically fit and active.  In many assisted living facilities in Detroit there are groups of seniors coming together to stay active.  The benefits of physical activity are abundant and most people are concerned about exercise when they are younger to look good and stay healthy, but as we age we can get relaxed in the physical fitness routine.  Some seniors are not willing to become old and feeble.  It is important for circulation and to maintain the ability to move about without the fear of falling down or muscle collapses.  Of course, these seniors who are meeting to remain active are not usually lifting heavy weights or spending hours in the gym.
