The decision to move into a senior living community is not always an easy one to make. Sometimes the decision has to be made on behalf of your loved one for their own safety. However, what may begin with hesitation can end up being one of the best decisions you’ve ever made.
It is understandable why your loved one may resist leaving the home they knew to live in an environment that is unfamiliar. However, we know that there are many pros to living in a senior living community, from safety to a sense of community to new friendships.
Through reviews from our residents and their loved ones, learn more about life at Barrington Terrace of Fort Myers.
Sometimes it is no longer safe for your loved one to live alone at home. Maybe the upkeep is too much or the home isn’t “aging-ready.” Maybe you’ve noticed signs of decline like missed medications and scorched pans. When this happens, a move into a senior living community is important for their safety and well-being.
Knowing your loved one is safe and cared for is a tremendous relief for many family members. Charles Zeynel shared this heartwarming message online, “My mother is in a great, safe and happy environment and is in caring, professional hands. We have true peace of mind that she is happy and well looked after.”

When considering a move to senior living, reviews like Kathtarine Naishtut’s make the decision much easier. She said, “Barrington Terrace has been a wonderful home for my mother and father. They have provided great nursing and doctors care. Very attentive staff in so many ways. Recently my dad passed away and they have made this time for the entire family very special. My mom has been treated with the most amazing care during this time. Can not thank the Barrington Terrace for the love and attention they have provided.”
When thinking of a senior living community, some may remember visiting their grandparents in a nursing home. From pools and game rooms to libraries and cocktail lounges, this is not your great-grandma’s senior living.
The way we look at senior living has evolved and seniors are staying active now more than ever. In addition to modern and updated decor, senior living communities offer many amenities like housekeeping, laundry services, and transportation. Kathleen Martel happily shared this review, “Feels like a resort and I have great companionship.”
Seniors can be affected the most when it comes to isolation, especially while dealing with an ongoing pandemic. Due to increased isolation, seniors are reevaluating their living arrangements.
Patty Johnson raved, “Barrington Terrace is a lovely community run by very friendly, caring staff. My friend, who has memory impairment, moved in 3 months ago and she loves it there. She seems to be thriving better than she was living alone in her condo. She is happy with the level of socialization and the dining services, as well as access to the beautiful garden in the courtyard.”
There are many benefits to living in a senior living community. That’s why so many seniors are making the move!
