Frequently Asked Questions About Senior Living

At The Village at Victory Lakes, it’s our goal to ensure you have all your questions about senior living answered. Below you’ll find some of the most frequently asked questions that we hear from prospective residents and their families. Take a look at the answers below and be sure to contact our expert team , if you have questions that aren’t listed.

What Is Senior Living?

Unlike a traditional nursing home, a senior living community focuses on providing residents with an active and fulfilling lifestyle while offering personalized care. Many communities like The Village at Victory Lakes have a variety of housing and healthcare options for older adults. Our senior living community gives older adults access to an independent way of life with  peace of mind, knowing that if their needs change, we’ll be able to support them.

What Is Independent Living?

Independent living focuses on giving older adults the opportunity to trade in the hassles of home maintenance for a fulfilling lifestyle where they can spend more time following their passions. Our independent living community has a variety of life enrichment activities and amenities, such as going on a group hike or creating your next masterpiece in an arts class. By removing the responsibility of home maintenance, you’ll be able to live joyfully in a welcoming atmosphere filled with people who share your interests.

What Is Assisted Living? 

Assisted living helps older adults manage their daily tasks, such as bathing, getting dressed, managing medications and more. With personalized support, assisted living residents can reach a higher level of wellness. At The Village at Victory Lakes, we focus on creating a welcoming and homelike atmosphere where assisted living residents can celebrate their independence while having peace of mind knowing their needs are taken care of.

What Is Memory Care?

Memory care is a senior living option specifically designed to offer meaningful care and support for older adults with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. Since dementia changes the way older adults see the world, our memory care programming  focuses on helping residents connect their treasured memories of the past to the present moment. Our goal is to help every memory care resident reach a higher level of well-being and find more purpose in each day.

What Is Respite Care?  

Respite care is a short-term care option for older adults that gives caregivers time to focus on other responsibilities. With a respite care stay, your loved one will be able to experience all the benefits that a senior living community offers without the long-term commitment.

What Services and Amenities Are Included?

Across all of the senior living options our community offers, we have a variety of convenient services and inviting amenities, including multiple dining venues,  gardening areas and exercise classes. To learn more about all that’s available at The Village at Victory Lakes, click here.

When Is the Right Time to Move to a Senior Living Community?

Making the move to a senior living community is a big decision, and there is no universal answer. Finding the right time depends on your or your loved one’s unique situation. Factors like the level of daily assistance that’s needed, proximity to family members, the cost of living and social opportunities all play a role in the decision. Contact one of our senior living experts today for more insight on whether it’s time to make the transition to a senior living community.
