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 Mirabelle.
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. Thomas Stawarski shared this message, “If you need to find a safe, secure and beautiful place for your loved one, Mirabelle should be your first call.”
FEELS LIKE HOME
Senior living communities help build a sense of community. Our trained staff keeps residents engaged and maintains deep connections through shared interests and stories. Our community is modern and updated with cozy corners for reading, gardens, and dining rooms where residents eat together. Resident Joaquin Pujol shared online, “Mirabelle is a wonderful place to live. They have a variety of different amenities. The staff is extremely caring and keeps the residents safe. I am proud to call Mirabelle my home.”
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.
Vera Hurley gushed in this online review, “Mirabelle is setting the gold standard for retirement communities. I am very grateful we were able to find this place for our father.” She continued, “He also loves how nice every staff member is, they make him feel like a million bucks. I feel great relief that we were able to find a gorgeous resort-like place, with amazing food and amenities - and the helpful and caring staff round out the highest 5-star rating I can give. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a retirement community.”
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.
Did someone say happy hour? Francisco Navarro, current resident of Mirabelle, shared this fun review, “My move here to Mirabelle has been such a smooth process. The building is beautiful and I am proud to call it my new home. Here at Mirabelle, they offer a variety of different amenities and activities. Some of my favorites are virtual bowling, live music and entertainment, and of course the happy hour! I don't even know where to start about my apartment. It has such an astonishing view facing Biscayne. My apartment is spacious and has a beautiful kitchen. Even has a wine cooler! Thank you to the Mirabelle staff for making me feel so welcome!”
