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 Naples.
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. Sandra Simmons shared this heartwarming message, “Mom has been at Barrington Terrace for five years and is very happy there. She is safe and well cared for. It was her first choice of where she wanted to go and we feel that she made an excellent choice.”

The way we look at senior living has evolved and seniors are staying active now more than ever. In addition to the modern and updated decor, senior living communities offer many amenities like housekeeping, laundry services, and transportation. Having a bit of extra help from the staff comes in handy.

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.
Anne Marie, a resident’s family member, shared this review, “Thanks to the sage advice from A Place for Mom, Barrington Terrace was the first facility that I checked. It was perfect! From the open and cheery entrance, to the welcoming and friendly staff, Barrington Terrace was the perfect choice. They put thought into every decision. Dad gets so many visitors because the environment is so pleasant that it is a positive experience. The food is good and is properly prepared, and they offer choices at every meal. They come for the residents for each activity. The staff takes the time to get to know not only the residents, but the family. What a relief it is to know that Dad is getting properly cared for.”
There are many benefits to living in a senior living community. That’s why so many seniors are making the move!
