A sense of independence. Close relationships. Wellness. A safe and pleasant environment. Peace of mind. All of these could be considered essential elements of happiness—and they are all reasons why assisted living quality of life could be right for you.

Assisted living’s features that equal a high quality of life

A sense of independence

When you’re free to choose how you spend your time, and you don’t have a list of worries and tasks weighing you down, life feels good. Very good. You feel in control of your present and your future. It’s the same feeling that assisted living can provide—freedom from all the responsibilities of home ownership that can weigh you down, such as the leaking roof, the worn out furnace, the missing shutter, the pile of leaves and so much more. It’s no longer up to you to see that it’s all handled.

In return, you enjoy a quality of life that feels light and filled with possibilities. Assisted living is designed to help you take charge of your future with more freedom and more energy. You can get back to what always brought you joy—which is what quality of life is all about.

Close relationships

As the song says, people need people. When you choose assisted living, you’re opening the door to new friends and new connections. No more dining alone if you’d rather enjoy lively conversation. No more exercising alone if you could use a companion to motivate you.

Assisted living’s quality of life means you can look forward to greeting friendly faces every day, and also share in the support when sad occasions arise. You not only get the pleasure of being around others you enjoy, you reap all the health benefits as well. Simply put, good friends are the best medicine!


Good health contributes to quality of life, and it’s key to lifelong wellness. In assisted living, professionally trained team members are on hand to monitor each individual’s health 24/7. In addition, nutritional support and guidance helps ensure residents get the proper vitamins in their diet—and enjoy delicious dining in a gracious atmosphere.

But it’s more than good food or even regular health screenings and wellness checks. It’s the uplifting feeling of being in an environment centered on keeping you as healthy, and happy, as possible. It’s a strong reason why assisted living quality of life can be so exceptional.

A safe and pleasant environment

Quality of life can suffer when surroundings are a challenge. Even the most cherished family home can grow tired over the years. Appliances fail, heating and air don’t run properly, paint fades and even the feel of the neighborhood changes.

Assisted living is the opportunity for a fresh start in a community designed specifically for your safety and comfort. Easy to navigate, with everything you need, and a reassuring knowledge that a helping hand is always close by if needed. You’re not on your own. You are part of a caring, friendly community that welcomes you home.

Peace of mind

Worry can wear you down and make it hard to be excited about the future. In assisted living, you can go about your days knowing you will have the support you need when you need it. Plus, you give up everyday concerns of home maintenance or daily tasks. With all that off your mind, you can keep your thoughts on what makes you happy—seeing family, learning a new hobby, visiting a museum, writing a memoir, or just enjoying the afternoon sunshine.

Assisted living could be just the quality of life you’re looking for
