Home is not only where the heart is, but it can also help you live a long, healthy and independent life.
Many seniors are turning to assisted-living communities to provide them with various levels of care and an array of activities and social events that help them maintain their health and live life to the fullest.
Some even experience a second lease on life, including Antioch resident Essie Brooks, who lives in TreVista Antioch, an assisted-living and memory-care community.
“Since moving here, I’ve become more social and get out and do so much more than I ever have,” said 79-year-old Brooks. “I never thought this would happen to me. Living here has brought out a different side of me that has led to so much happiness, and everyday is a good day here.”
According to Amanda Stewart, TreVista Antioch senior-living consultant, Brooks’ transformation is not unique for residents. Many of the community’s residents find themselves enjoying life in ways they never expected.
“At TreVista, we believe people should go on living the life they want to live for as long as possible, which means continuing to be engaged in the world around them and with people of all ages,” said Stewart. “Our activity program helps each person make the most of every day and to experience life to the fullest. Our residents do many things that are not typical for those in other senior communities, including flying in a WWII bi-plane, making pots at a local ceramic shop, attending a local baseball game, volunteering in a grade-school classroom or working out in a local gym.”
TreVista Antioch’s resident-centric approach is a vision created by Agemark Senior Living Communities, which owns TreVista Antioch as well as 18 other communities nationally and has been a leader in senior living since 1987.
TreVista Antioch offers assisted living in spacious studio and one-bedroom apartments as well as memory care, which offers a secured environment with specialized care for those with dementia conditions such as Alzheimer’s.
“Resident are typically 80 and older who need a little help with one or more health-care needs and who benefit from receiving good nutrition, daily social engagement and caring 24-hour oversight,” said Stewart. “Diabetic care, medication management and bathing assistance are just a few of the health-care services offered, and residents also enjoy daily meals, housekeeping, laundry, free transportation and an extensive activity program.”
Their signature wellness program, LifeCycles, encourages physical, social, intellectual and spiritual well-being through a wide variety of personalized engagement and activities.
“Staff and family are also included in activities,” said Stewart. “This makes residents feel connected, valued and happy. Our goal is to make each day special and filled with moments of joy, because there is so much more to life than getting health care and three meals a day.”
One of the things residents of TreVista Antioch enjoy most about the community is the beautiful 10-acre campus, which is currently being renovated to include new outdoor gathering spaces and a spectacular waterfall feature.
“It is so beautiful here,” said Brooks, who also enjoys the cozy community rooms with fireplaces and the beautiful dining room that opens to a private patio and hillside waterfall.
Whether TreVista Antioch residents are enjoying a holiday party, birthday celebration, yoga class, spa day or a trip to a golf course, local concert or art show, they are given endless choices to live life to the fullest and optimize their health and well-being.
