Affordable Housing Services

In an affordable senior community, residents can expect many of the same conveniences and amenities that are provided in other senior communities and lifestyles. These communities offer services that help senior residents live more carefree lives and allow their families to live with more confidence knowing they are in a community that caters to their needs.

Housekeeping, Maintenance, and Laundry

While all affordable situations differ, at Senior Lifestyle, our affordable senior communities provide household services that help reduce the time and worry seniors spend on their apartment homes. Many of our communities offer monthly housekeeping, free laundry rooms, and consolidated utilities to make paying bills simpler. On-site maintenance personnel provides timely resolutions to requests in the community and individual apartment homes, creating a comfortable lifestyle.

Transportation

For many seniors, transportation to and from the grocery store can be challenging. Our affordable senior communities provide transportation to and from the grocery store each week to make sure our seniors are getting the nutrition they need. Families can feel good knowing their loved ones will always have convenient access to the store each week.

Emergency Call Response

Even independent seniors need to consider what would happen in the event of an emergency. Our affordable communities have in-apartment emergency call response system to help our seniors and their families feel secure. Whether it’s a fall or another emergency situation, having someone there ready to respond provides much-needed comfort in our residents’ lives.

Affordable Housing Services

In affordable living communities, seniors can expect basic services and amenities that help them live more laid-back and enjoyable lives. Residents and their families should educate themselves on the offerings of each potential community in order to make the best decision. When visiting or touring a community, here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Is there housekeeping? How often does it occur?
  • What if there is an issue with the apartment? How do maintenance problems get resolved?
  • Is transportation available?
  • What happens in an emergency? Is there someone available on-site?

Who is Right for Affordable Senior Housing?

Affordable communities are filled with interesting, vibrant, and independent residents ready to live a more relaxed lifestyle. With a little bit of assistance, they can live in our social communities, plan and attend events, and travel around the broader community with confidence. Our seniors and their families love that our staff is available to help and enjoy our amenities and services such as housekeeping, transportation, and emergency call response.

Residents in our community can live independently without needing daily assistance. Our affordable senior housing provides convenient amenities and services but doesn’t provide personal care plans or medical care. Seniors and their families should discuss what lifestyle options might be right for their family members.
