Introduce Yourself to Activities We Enjoy at Calvary Homes

Senior paintingSenior activities at retirement communities should be more than just bingo and card games. As you age, it’s important to continue to be able to have fun and enjoy life no matter what your age or where you live. When you consider moving into a retirement community, asking about what activities are offered should be just as important as asking, “Where will I move?” or “Will I have access to full-time emergency care?”

At Calvary Homes, we offer our residents a faith-based, tight-knit community in Lancaster, PA, with ample opportunities for lifelong learning on our 38-acre campus. From golfing, arts and crafts, to devotion and worship hours, the activities we offer to our residents will maximize your quality of life while still glorifying our Lord Jesus Christ. (more…)

What the Bible Says About Taking Care of Elderly Parents

Caring for parent

As our parents get older, it’s important to consider how we are going to take care of them. There are many different opinions on what your responsibilities should include when taking care of aging parents. From their health care, to power of attorney designations, financial assistance, and even living arrangements, there are so many decisions to make to help them live their best lives as they age.

Get Familiar with Your Options for Retirement Living

Seniors enjoying teaAs the U.S. population of people over 60 years of age grows, so too does the demand for care and housing to meet their changing needs. How seniors navigate their golden years has changed for the better over the last few decades, even though many don’t realize this.

Today, seniors can enjoy a better quality of life and more housing and care options than ever before. Consequently, seniors and their families can be overwhelmed by the choices available. Ultimately, the choice of which care and housing option is best for any individual comes down to two things: care needs and finances, though there are many more things to consider when choosing the right retirement community.

Today’s post offers a closer look at the different types of living options that are available to senior retirees now. From “aging in place” in your current home to moving into one of a variety of community types, we’ll help you sort through the possibilities as you plan for the future. (more…)
