Today, it’s easier than ever to find the right Virginia assisted living facility. With all that Virginia has to offer, you’ll have an easy time finding an assisted living home near some great activities as well. From Alexandria to Richmond to Newport News, Virginia is known for its hiking, rafting and climbing, but there’s also plenty to do for people who are less active. In addition to its historical sites, Virginia has several zoos and animal parks, including a reptile center. Its National parks provide the perfect locations for leisurely Sunday drives, picnics, and strolls through beautiful woodlands. For a senior who needs a little help but wants to remain as independent as possible, an assisted living home may be the perfect answer.
Assisted living facilities are staffed with trained medical professionals who provide quality, personalized care. At the same time, assisted living residents have their own space, are able to set their own schedules (to a certain degree), and still take care of themselves as much as they are able. Assisted living centers provide residents with a ready-made community, as well. The staff often plans regular game and movie nights, and arts and crafts activities. Residents can participate as much, or as little, as they want, but even those who aren’t as active benefit from being in a lively environment.
If your loved one doesn’t want to participate in the assisted living home’s events on a given day, there are a lot of things you can do together in Virginia. There are numerous shopping districts, art galleries and museums, cultural and sporting events.
