Questions & Answers

Independent Living is a choice that lets you continue living life as you choose, but without the worries of home maintenance and upkeep, transportation, planning and preparing meals and other daily concerns. Surrounded by others with similar life experiences, you can access an array of life-enhancing amenities and services that add vitality and quality leisure time to your days.

Actually, that’s the best time to move into a retirement community, when you can fully enjoy all the exceptional perks available to you. Free from daily worries with new peace of mind for the future, you can discover new talents, make new friends, travel easily, pursue new levels of wellness and in general, get more out of each day. 

Before you make a decision about Independent Living in a senior living community, it’s best to visit several options. Talk to the staff. Take a tour and try out the food. Do residents look happy and engaged?  Is the atmosphere lively and positive?  Make a list before you visit of everything that matters most to you.

Assisted Living offers individuals assistance with the activities of daily living—such as dressing, bathing, dining, medication management—while still offering every opportunity for maintaining independence. Residents are free to go about their day, knowing a helping hand is available if needed.  

Any person who would appreciate the peace of mind that comes from knowing assistance is available, whether for daily activities, medication reminders or other daily needs. In addition, if a loved one no longer wishes to live alone, Assisted Living offers security as well as companionship of good neighbors and a helpful staff.

Staying at home can mean being alone, which can be difficult when health needs change or an emergency occurs. Often, you are still dealing with home maintenance, daily tasks, difficulty arranging transportation or preparing meals. Living in Assisted Living frees you from those worries, because just about everything you need is available. And in Assisted Living as exceptional as that at Trulee Evanston, you have access to a wide array of entertainment, social activities, stimulating programs and more.

Normal forgetfulness is part of the aging process and usually begins in middle age. However, there is there is a great difference between occasionally forgetting your keys and dementia. People with dementia cannot retrieve information and in most cases, lose the ability of how to remember. Dementia can be a variety of diagnosis. The most common is Alzheimer’s, a severe, progressive loss of recent memory and thinking ability.  

A few factors to watch for: a senior who suddenly stops doing a longtime hobby or withdraws. Sudden weight loss. Change in grooming habits. A house in disorder. An inability to follow conversations. If you suspect that your loved one’s memory loss is disrupting their daily routine, it could be time to seek medical advice.

A quality Memory Care program provides countless benefits such as safety, nutrition and professional support. Activities and programs provide mental stimulation and interaction, especially when drawn from that individual’s life experiences. Therapeutic tools such as music and art can awaken the senses and provide moments of personal success. In addition, many Memory Care residents benefit from the enriching ambiance of a senior living community that also includes Independent Living and Assisted Living.
