At The Manse on Marsh, our residents are very much a part of a vibrant community – one that we know can benefit so many seniors and their families who are in need of residential community senior care. That’s why it’s especially gratifying to see new research being published about quality of life as families transition their loved ones to assisted living.
Recent research published by McKnight’s Senior Living showcased the benefits both seniors and their family members can experience when an older adult moves into a residential community.
73% of families reported that their senior loved one's quality of life got better or much better.
73% of respondents reported an improvement in the older adult's nutrition,
64% saw social well-being improve,
47% saw emotional well-being improve and
44% saw physical health improve.
A move didn't just benefit the older adult, however. It also benefited their family members, the surveys found. Family caregivers said they experienced improvements in stress, diet, exercise and work without sacrificing their financial well-being. Of the families who had a parent or loved one move:
60% said their own quality of life improved.
50% of the families who helped a parent or loved one move said their relationship with the senior improved.
64% of families who helped a loved one make a move reported feeling less stress about their senior loved ones.
32% of families who transitioned reported healthier or much healthier diets and exercise levels after the move.
