Navigating the Cost of a Senior Living Community

As you plan for a loved one’s care, the cost of senior living may raise some questions. You want to ensure your parent, spouse, or other family member receives the highest standard of care and the best living experience possible, as well as the best value. To bring clarity to this complex subject, Friends Village at Woodstown takes a closer look at what an investment in senior living provides.


A Skilled and Caring Staff

Staff is one of the most significant expenses in running a successful senior community, especially when the organization insists on the most qualified, experienced team members. You’re aware of all the professionals you’d see on any visit to a community like Friends Village at Woodstown, but many work behind the scenes to deliver a premier senior living experience. This includes

· Recreational and social activity coordinators

· Chefs, kitchen staff, and servers

· Dieticians

· Pharmacy techs

· Maintenance, groundskeepers, and other facilities professionals

· Administrative staff

· And more…

Maintaining a dedicated, caring staff is fundamental to delivering the amenities and services community members deserve. When a community invests in a quality team, it is investing in the well-being of every resident.


Specialized Medical Care

Senior living communities must offer easy access to trusted medical professionals and comprehensive healthcare facilities. These investments ensure residents can see a physician, receive physical, occupational, and/or speech therapy, and get needed medications without visiting an off-campus location.

Providing skilled nursing services and memory care requires additional investment, but is essential when creating a continuum of care. By offering specialized care and added help for those who need more support than assisted living can provide, these services allow aging in place and ensure changing needs are easily met.


Activities and Enrichment

Staying active is key to good physical and emotional health, especially for seniors. Part of the costs of senior living residents and their families pay helps fund the activities that support an active, engaged lifestyle. For example, Friends Village at Woodstown offers a range of enrichment opportunities, including:

· Trips to museums, theaters, and events

· Continuing education programs

· Gardening activities

· Art classes and creative endeavors

· Spiritual opportunities, including worship and prayer groups

· Physical fitness activities and classes

· And more…

Going far beyond a few card games or trips to shopping centers, these enrichment activities help residents gather with friends, explore new interests, and see all the surrounding area has to offer.


Beautiful Buildings and Grounds

It’s easy to take your surroundings for granted, but stunning accommodations and grounds uplift the spirit and make a senior living community more welcoming. At the same time, all indoor and outdoor areas must be optimized with the comfort and safety of older individuals in mind. In addition to thoughtful design and beautiful landscaping, a senior living Community must create and maintain easy navigation for residents with mobility challenges.

Additionally, many senior living communities strive to provide everything residents need on-campus. This requires the creation and maintenance of gathering areas, dining facilities, theaters, and more – even hair salons, woodshops, and other spaces you might not think of. Your investment in senior living contributes to the maintenance of these spaces and expanded facilities in the future.
