Making the move to an assisted living facility can be a difficult decision. Many seniors feel like moving to assisted living means giving up their freedom. At The Windham Senior Living we want you and your family to know that getting proper care in an assisted living facility actually improves quality of life, a fact reinforced by a recent resident-satisfaction study conducted by the California Assisted Living Association (CALA). Here are some details about that study, and some of the services we provide at The Windham.
Quality of Life in Assisted Living
The quality of your life is the most important aspect of making your golden years the best years you’ve ever had. At The Windham, we work hard to keep your quality of life as high as possible by hiring the best people who provide unmatched quality care. Open channels of communication allow you to ask for the care you need knowing that you’ll receive it, giving you the feeling of trust you need. In the CALA study, 94% of California assisted living residents said they got the care they needed while 93% of residents and their family members said they believed staff members were skilled at doing their jobs. Numbers like that make us proud to be providing assisted living care in California and we aim to continue providing the same excellent care for decades to come.
Building a Sense of Belonging
Many seniors worry that moving to an assisted living facility will cause them to miss out on the relationships that made their lives so rich and fulfilling in the past. At the Windham, we’re focused on creating a community where seniors have ample opportunity to interact not just with their old friends and family, but with a whole new group of vibrant people. Our residents feel like they belong here, and the CALA study backs up that claim. 98% of those surveyed said staff members were friendly, while 95% said they were comfortable with the people in their communities.
Referrals Built on Trust
The best litmus test of life in an assisted living facility is referrals. Would our residents recommend The Windham Senior Living to others? The CALA survey shows that California assisted living residents would absolutely recommend their facility to others. 89% of residents surveyed said they would recommend their assisted living community to a friend while 90% of their family member said they would make the same recommendation. With satisfaction like that, making the transition to assisted living is an easy decision.
California is a great place to retire and the resounding approval of our state’s assisted living model proves it. At The Windham Senior Living, we’re proud to be part of a larger community of assisted living facilities that make their residents’ comfort and security a top priority. In the future, we promise to stay dedicated to this goal so you and your family can rest easy knowing you’re getting the best care possible.
