Nestled less than one hour away from Atlanta, Johns Creek is the ideal mix of culture, safety and quiet. If you love the area and want to call it home but have certain health conditions or issues that could make living alone difficult, consider assisted living as your ticket to life in Johns Creek with the help you need. Options for assisted living in Johns Creek are plentiful and varied.

As you begin your search for a senior living community that best suits you, consider asking these important questions: 

Do You Have Access to Nature?

Look for assisted living communities that take full advantage of the recreational opportunities within Johns Creek, which is home to more than 13 miles of Chattahoochee Riverfront and national park areas. You want to be sure you have access to walk, fish, or just enjoy nature.

Moreover, Johns Creek recently passed a referendum to invest $40 million to upgrade and expand park areas throughout the city; with even more wonderful outdoor areas on the way, you want to be sure that your assisted living community gives residents the chance to get outdoors. Whether the senior living community is built within walking distance to a natural area or plans weekly trips to outdoor areas of interest, it is important to establish the answer to this question prior to committing your money.

Do You Provide an Engaging Calendar That Includes Johns Creek Events?

Johns Creek boasts a culturally diverse community that is committed to the arts. Find out whether the assisted living community you are investigating supports culture and arts throughout the greater community. Look for an activity calendar full of cultural learning opportunities on campus as well as trips planned into the greater community to check out local restaurants, art exhibits, opportunities to see the Johns Creek Symphony Orchestra perform, and more.

Staying engaged with new friends within your assisted living community, as well as feeling connected to the greater Johns Creek area, is important to healthy aging. Therefore, the activity calendar should have a balance of group and individual activities, new learning, physical exercise, spiritual opportunities and volunteer work. A full and vibrant event calendar offers a wonderful chance to meet your new neighbors and keep your mind and body healthy.

Is the Assistance I Need Offered at Your Senior Living Community?

Assisted living provides residents with an apartment and lifestyle that includes around-the-clock caregiving staff. Make sure the community you are looking at offers the help you need. Evaluate your current cognitive and physical health, as well as any chronic medical conditions that may require additional assistance in the future. Then, find out what is offered at the communities you are researching. Services such as housekeeping, nutritional support and hands-on care should complement and support your challenges or conditions.

If you are seeking an assisted living community in Johns Creek that provides exceptional care and an engaging calendar of events for residents to enjoy, don’t overlook Arbor Terrace of Johns Creek. Beyond care and activities, Arbor Terrace takes advantage of all that Johns Creek has to offer. We would love for you to join our community!
