Memory Care, Alzheimer's, Senior Living
Many people consider forgetfulness a natural part of getting older – losing your keys, forgetting words, missing an appointment. However, sometimes these simple, forgetful moments are a symptom of memory impairment or something more serious.
Therapy Dogs, Senior Living, Health
Animal therapy is beneficial at any age, but seniors may experience additional benefits, especially those living in a senior living community.
Social Wellness, Senior Living, Aging
Significant life changes that occur as we age can change the way we feel about ourselves both physically and mentally. Although it may seem trivial, your self-worth can impact several aspects of your life, such as your confidence level, ability to make life decisions effectively, or your ability to build honest and lasting relationships.
Safety, Senior Living
The internet is a great way for people to complete a variety of tasks - shopping, scheduling appointments or reading the latest news. It allows people to connect from across the globe and presents the opportunity to meet people with similar thoughts and interests. Along with all of these positive opportunities the internet offers, there is also the potential for negative experiences such as falling victim to online scams.
Independent Living, Senior Living
At Fieldstone Communities, we know how challenging and difficult it is for family members who live at a distance from their loved ones. Whether you live out of town or out of state, we know that you want to be kept up-to-date on how your parents spend their day. To help our residents and family members stay connected with one another, we have introduced LifeLoop into our communities! LifeLoop is a remarkable software program that our families are using to stay in the “loop” with their parent or loved one. It has even been featured in Seniors Housing Business, Midlands Business Journal, and Rise of the Rest.

As you consider senior living options, it is helpful to familiarize with some commonly used terms that will help you make an informed decision for you or your loved one. While the senior living glossary of terms is quite extensive, to get you started, we have outlined five of the most commonly used expressions below.
Aging, Senior Living
We all feel lonely from time to time, but seniors are especially susceptible to chronic loneliness. In fact, it affects 1 in 5 seniors. Isolation and loneliness can cause symptoms such as cognitive decline, depression, increased stress levels, high blood pressure and in some cases an early death. Thankfully, these side effects are entirely preventable by taking measures to ensure a high level of social wellness and regular activity.
Senior Living, Therapy Dogs
We all know pets make us feel better, but studies show us it is not just a feeling – it is a fact. Having regular exposure to animals is known to improve a variety of different conditions for children, adults, and seniors alike. We have seen the impact firsthand as we’ve welcomed our furry friends into our Fieldstone Communities.
