The Benefits of Assisted Living.

There are so many benefits offered by assisted living communities it’s hard to pinpoint just one. One of the numerous assets is that this type of senior living can provide peace of mind for both the family members and the resident as it improves the quality of life of a loved one.  It brings relief knowing that the senior in your life is in a safe, secure place with day or night assistance immediately available. Keep reading to learn the pros and cons of assisted living.

Designed to make life easier for seniors.

An assisted living facility is a good choice if your loved one wants to maintain an independent way of life without burdening adult children with caretaking.

A community such as Lamar Court Assisted Living can provide peace of mind for the whole family. Residents receive help with:

  • Ambulation
  • Bathing
  • Dressing
  • Eating
  • Grooming
  • Managing medication
  • Toileting
  • Transferring bed/chair

With all the other things that most adults handle on a daily basis (like raising kids, going to work and meeting their financial obligations), knowing a loved one is residing in a compassionate, quality environment is a huge relief.

At Lamar Court, our lifestyle is centered around residents. We give your loved one the freedom to customize their day with just the right programs, amenities and services to suit their unique style. Residents have time on their hands to explore hobbies, develop new friendships and pursue lifelong passions knowing support is available 24/7. Our professional care team relies upon top-notch technology and proactive methods to ensure residents live their healthiest lives.


A recent study found that moving to a senior living community actually increased the physical and mental well-being of a senior while offering an enhanced sense of support and security.

Communal living can keep loneliness and depression at bay giving you even more reason to move to assisted living. Most communities with assisted living services offer a wide variety of activities every day. Living alone, a senior may go days without seeing anyone in their own home.

In addition, safety is paramount for your loved one as they age. A senior who has limited mobility can need help with even the simplest task such as getting out of bed. Falls, too, are a big concern and a major cause of injuries. Every second of every day, an older adult (age 65+) suffers a fall in the U.S.—making falls the leading cause of fatal and nonfatal injury in this age group. With certified caregivers always present at Lamar Court and extensive safety features like a 24/7 emergency call system, you can always be confident about our attention to the health and security of a loved one.

features and benefits of assisted living.

Do you think that assisted living communities are quiet, boring places? Think again! Instead of only providing traditional nursing home care, assisted living is about giving your loved one the support they need to live independently for as long as possible. A Journals of Gerontology study showed that moving to an assisted living facility can help delay or prevent nursing home placement.

Our lively community is packed with upbeat experiences. Check out our virtual tour to see some of the amenities, game rooms, and dining venues we offer. From three chef-prepared meals daily, to fitness classes and on-site entertainment, everything is provided to help residents feel inspired and energized.
