Live a full life in adult family homes
Moving into an adult family home doesn’t mean it’s time to settle for a quiet, uninteresting life. The smaller, more intimate size of an adult family home makes it possible to offer a more individualized program, focusing on the interests and needs of the individuals that live in the home.
Visits from family members and friends are always welcome. However, I suggest avoiding mornings before 10, evenings after 7 and mealtimes, since eating a nutritious meal that is uninterrupted is paramount to building your loved one’s strength. Check with the home’s owner for their recommendations.
Most homes celebrate all the holidays and will throw birthday parties and other family celebrations. Daily and weekly activities may include exercise, hair and nails service, movies, holiday crafts, entertainment, game time or simple gardening. But it really depends on the interests of each resident.
When possible, the staff of adult family homes may help to plan various outings for those residents who are able and willing to venture out into the community. Lunch outings, picnics, scenic drives, and stops for a treat are all events that residents and families may enjoy.
When searching for a home that is the perfect fit, be sure to ask about the special services and activities that each home provides.
