Benefits of Residential Homes for Independent Living:

Lonestar carehome benefits:

The list of benefits is long, so here are a few of the main ones:

  • Continue life in a familiar manner, in a regular community/neighborhood.
  • Who wants to live in an apartment when they can live in a house?
  • Basic chores are all taken care of by a Caregiver.
  • Be part of a family living with your peers, not isolated in an apartment alone.
  • The cost of living and care is split between residents making it affordable.
  • The lifestyle is more familiar living in a normal, single story home, in a regular neighborhood, but all the chores of daily life removed.
  • Seniors get much more personal attention and a stronger bond with their caregiver as there is a maximum of 6 to 1 ratio between caregiver and residents. Compare this to a large apartment style community, where there might be 30 residents or more, to one caregiver.
  • You have a private bedroom in a home, but are not isolated and cut off as you now belong to a new family with 3 of your peers.
  • Meals, laundry, cleaning, occasional outings, activities and some doctor trips handled by licensed caregivers.
