What Assisted Living is Like at Collingswood
When looking for assisted living for yourself or a loved one, you will find a broad selection of options for every budget and need. UMC at Collingswood, a full-service assisted living community in Camden County, offers a wide range of options – allowing residents to stay independent and active as they age in place. Here are some of the main reasons seniors choose assisted living with us over others in the area.
Safety and Security. With members of the team available around-the-clock, emergency call systems, and secure entrances, residents at UMC at Collingswood can feel confident that they are always protected. Additionally, the community is designed with safety in mind, with features like handrails, non-slip flooring, and grab bars in bathrooms to prevent falls.
High-Quality Care. Another key benefit of residing in an assisted living community is access to comprehensive care. United Methodist Communities at Collingswood has a team of experienced caregivers who are trained to provide a wide range of services, including medication management, assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs), and specialized care for residents with dementia or other complex health conditions. There will always be a caregiver or healthcare professional on-site throughout the day to ensure that residents receive the necessary support to stay healthy and comfortable.
Vibrant Social Life. One of the most significant challenges seniors face is social isolation. It can lead to depression, anxiety, and other health problems. Assisted living communities like United Methodist Communities at Collingswood address this issue by providing an active social life for residents. From daily activities and group outings to communal dining and shared living spaces, residents have ample opportunities to connect with others, stay active, and build lasting, meaningful relationships.
Convenient Amenities. Assisted living communities also offer convenient, hotel-like amenities that can make daily life easier and more enjoyable. Our senior community, for example, features an on-site salon, library, and fitness center, as well as outdoor spaces for gardening and relaxing. These amenities allow residents to engage in their favorite pastimes, as well as pursue new hobbies that keep life exciting here at Collingswood!
Freedom and Independence. While many seniors may initially view community living as a loss of independence, it’s actually the exact opposite. Assisted living communities like United Methodist Communities at Collingswood provide seniors with the freedom they crave while also offering the support they need. Residents can customize their living spaces to fit their unique needs and style preferences and come and go as they please. As we briefly touched on before, we also offer an array of amenities and fun activities like yoga, gardening, and movie nights that allow residents to more easily explore their interests. Throughout the day, caregivers are always available to assist with daily tasks or medical needs, ensuring that residents can maintain their mobility and independence for as long as possible.
