In the late 1970s, the American public began looking for a different way to age gracefully. Some seniors, aged 55 and over, needed help with activities of daily living, but weren’t appropriate for the level of care provided in a skilled nursing facility or nursing home.
In the early 1980s, a new type of community began to appear – assisted living.
Assisted living communities were developed to meet the needs of seniors who either needed or wanted a little extra help with day-to-day activities. Now, assisted living communities offer incredible variety – both in services and amenities – for seniors seeking a fuller quality of life.
Assisted living at Legacy Oaks of Azle is focused on providing the right care at the right time in the right way.
Some seniors choose assisted living because they like the idea of a carefree lifestyle and want the freedom of no housework. Assisted living packages include housekeeping, laundry service, and dining service. Can you imagine? No more folding laundry, cooking, or washing dishes? Other seniors need more assistance with moving around or grooming, activities with which the staff of Legacy Oaks of Azle is ready to help.
As you can see, assisted living is about more than needing help. It’s about removing the barriers that are keeping you from living your best, fullest, most rewarding life.
