To provide the best care for your loved ones, we need to understand their needs and expectations, and the way to do so is through clear communication. Here at Aston Gardens At Pelican Marsh, your loved ones will be in constant contact with our team of medical personnel, caregivers, and staff members. This is also our way to make sure that your loved ones feel safe and secure when living in our senior living community. Good communication is considered one of the pillars of strong health, so it’s a no-brainer that we incorporate it into our daily practices.
About Our Retirement Community’s Superior Communication
We are aware that for some loved ones, it can be a challenge to put thoughts into words. What they wish to convey might not be easily understood, which can lead to misunderstandings and frustration for both your loved ones and the party involved. Therefore, our experienced team has superior communication skills that allow them to connect with residents and listen to their problems. This way, they can address any concerns as quickly as possible and offer the necessary advice. If your loved ones are suffering from hearing loss, we can also provide assistive hearing devices.
Benefits of Having Superior Communication in Your Retirement Community
Regular communication provides an opportunity for our team to catch up with your loved ones and be a source of companionship. If your loved ones can’t head out as much and partake in activities due to health-related factors, they will soon feel isolated, which is detrimental to their mental health. Emotional health and physical health are inextricably linked, so your loved ones are more likely to fall sick if they are unhappy. In fact, research has shown that good communication leads to lower risks for chronic illnesses, better cognitive function, and even increased mobility.
When Should You Consider Moving into a Retirement Community?
As your loved ones age, it becomes harder for them to hear, talk, write, read, and perform general communication skills. This can make it difficult for them to express their feelings and opinions, which can be distressing when they require assistance. For some loved ones, the loss of communication skills can result from cognitive impairment such as Alzheimer’s and dementia, so they’re unable to take care of themselves.
Soon, you and your family members will feel mentally and physically drained while caring for your loved ones. As such, it’s best to place your loved ones into a senior living community, where our team of professional staff has been trained to recognize and understand the various needs of older adults. If their lack of communication skills is directly or indirectly linked to environmental factors, we’ll make the necessary changes in their living spaces and surroundings.
