Independent Living vs. Assisted Lifestyle - Parc at Duluth

Retirement is supposed to be a fun and relaxing time in your life. After decades of hard work and sacrifice, being able to reflect on your life and look forward to what the future holds is a top priority. Of course, you still need to think about your living situation and what makes the most sense for you and your life.

Many people in your situation are unsure about how much assistance they should have. At Parc at Duluth you have two distinct options to choose from: Assisted Lifestyle and Independent Living. Each has its own set of benefits, and the following guide should help you make your decision.

Parc at Duluth’s New Personal Care Community

How do I know if my mom or dad needs to move into a senior living or an assisted living community?

This is a question we at Parc Communities hear frequently, and it’s a very important one.  As the care giver of an aging parent, we understand that you only want the very best for your parent just as they want the very best for you as their child.  At Parc Communities we understand that the needs of our residents are ever-changing.  This is the reason why we’ve recently expanded our senior living communities in both Duluth and Marietta to also offer assisted living

When deciding between senior living and assisted living the area we really focus on is ADL, that is, activities of daily livingThese are the regular tasks completed on a day-to-day basis (i.e., food preparation, personal grooming, dressing, etc.) that help us determine individual strengths as well as areas where some residents may need (or prefer) assistance.  Because aging affects each individual differently, we also make ParcCare services available to our residents.  This proprietary system assists those residents who may need specialized assistance with specific tasks, but aren’t in need of the comprehensive care provided in Parc assisted living.

If your parents are interested in down-sizing and moving to a senior community or Atlanta assisted living community, it’s best that they sit down with one of our specialists to help discuss their senior lifestyle options.  We work hard at Parc Communities to ensure that all of our residents have access to all the amenities they’re accustomed to as well as providing new opportunities to grow socially, emotionally, and physically through resident activities.
