How Seniors with Disabilities Can Benefit From a Senior Living Community
According to the CDC, nearly half of all adults 65 years or older deal with some form of disability. It is common for these seniors to attempt to continue living independently, but they often find increased difficulties in daily tasks such as getting dressed, going to the bathroom, and preparing meals.
As the premiere assisted senior living community in Sussex County, United Methodist Communities at Bristol Glen offers a wide array of care and services that give peace of mind to any senior living with a disability. By fostering an independent lifestyle, UMC at Bristol Glen provides a welcoming and supportive atmosphere, enabling seniors to live each day to the fullest. Within the nurturing environment of an assisted living community, seniors with disabilities often find themselves not just living but truly thriving!
Common Health Issues For Seniors
As seniors age, increased health issues may arise, making living alone more difficult. Due to many factors, family members may not always be available to help with day-to-day support. Thankfully, an assisted living community can accommodate adults with a wide range of needs, including seniors with complex health conditions or limited mobility. The UMC at Bristol Glen team is equipped to provide care and support for seniors dealing with disabilities such as hearing impairment, cognitive difficulties, vision problems, heart health, respiratory diseases, hip and joint injuries, and other medical conditions.

Don’t Allow Your Disability to Hold You Back
Certain disabilities can prove to be very difficult for seniors and their families. Seniors should not have to feel helpless and face their medical conditions alone, while sacrificing their independence in the process. This is why, as a faith-based nonprofit, UMC at Bristol Glen strives to do much more than take care of its residents. We load up our monthly activity calendar and encourage our residents to attend as many events as they’d like. Our fitness and wellness programs are extremely popular with our residents and provide outlets that enhance quality of life and preserve health.
