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 The Vantage at Cityview.
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 like Karen Harris, who shared this review online, “If you are looking for a beautiful, safe, clean, fun environment for your parents filled with employees who genuinely care, The Vantage is your retirement village. We have watched our parents improve and thrive since moving in. Knowing they are cared for with excellence gives us peace.”

Kim Lancaster said, “My mom is very happy living at The Vantage at Cityview! The people here are so kind and sweet to her as well as to her family when we visit. She loves her apartment! It feels like a home. She especially loves having a balcony where she can go and sit outside in the mornings. She also loves the convenience of having her meals in the dining room. She feels extremely safe! The people at The Vantage are very kind and friendly to residents as well as their families!”
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.
Sandra Young shared this message regarding multiple family members, who call The Vantage home, “The Vantage is a community that provides a safe and engaging place for all residents. When transitioning to a new home, you can’t find a place that’s as comfortable as your own home. Vantage helps create a new home to love with a caring staff, beautiful property, consistent service and fun! Our family is so thankful we chose Vantage for multiple family members to call their new home.”
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.
Senior living communities help seniors maintain and develop new relationships through common interests and a planned activities calendar. We love when we receive comments like this one from Pamela Leitch. She gushed, “My mom is happy living at Vantage. She looks forward to the many activities offered such as exercise classes, wine down Wednesday, bingo, and entertainment.”
There are many benefits to living in a senior living community. That’s why so many seniors are making the move!
