Safely Socializing in Senior Living

Contact Us

In the midst of the current global health climate, it’s easy to get caught up in the news cycle, as well as our own fears and uncertainty. It’s no secret that the senior population is at an increased risk of contracting Covid-19, as well as suffer complications from the virus itself. Running errands, dining out with friends and family, and socializing have all transformed from everyday activities into ‘risky’ endeavors.

We’re finding that Covid is bringing with it a slew of secondary effects on the senior population, the most significant of which are isolation and increased feelings of loneliness. Beyond the obvious emotional toll loneliness takes on us, it also manifests itself physically. We can experience mental and cognitive decline, increased blood pressure, and even a weakened immune system. These are all especially true for those who are living at home alone.

Weighing Your Options

Now more than ever, people are weighing their options for senior living. Remaining at home certainly has a level of comfort to it, but also brings the isolation and the increased risks and stressors associated with caring for your home and yourself — from home maintenance and grocery shopping to safely getting to doctor’s appointments. On the other hand, moving to a new community can feel overwhelming and scary for some, but there’s no better time!

In our communities, Vantage Point prides itself on giving all of our residents the luxurious, worry-free lifestyle you deserve with all the comforts you’ve grown accustomed to at home. Community living brings countless benefits with it. Built-in socialization with your friends and neighbors decreases isolation and loneliness, leading to a healthier you. Available private and group transportation can get you wherever you need to go safely, or you can enjoy world-class amenities and dining options without leaving the building. On-site health and wellness facilities and classes keep you fit and active, while a full activities calendar can keep you as busy or as relaxed as you want to be. Not to mention, you’ll be experiencing all of this with your beautiful apartment mere steps away!
