What You Need to Know About Assisted Living

Senior living communities today offer assisted living services that provide residents with lifestyle options designed to help them thrive independently, while also giving them access to safe, comfortable surroundings, and a supportive environment of friendly peers and caring team members.  Residents will enjoy healthy chef-prepared meals and a schedule of stimulating events and activities. Below we have provided answers to some of the most common questions about Assisted Living.

Do Assisted Living Residents Still Live Independently?

Absolutely!  Most assisted living residents do not need around-the-clock help, but at many senior living communities, services and amenities are available if needed.  This ensures that residents enjoy a simplified, maintenance-free lifestyle. The Willowood at Mustang Senior Living Community offers 44 private assisted living apartments with access to household services for every need, including housekeeping, maintenance, laundry, and concierge services. Residents who prefer a break or need help with cooking, have access to three nutritious, gourmet meals daily, served restaurant-style in our dining room. We also offer scheduled transportation to nearby points of interest and appointments so residents can venture off campus when desired.

Isn’t Assisted Living the Same as Being in a Nursing Home?

Assisted living in a senior living community is quite different, as the community is designed to keep residents actively engaged for as long as possible while also helping them live as independently as possible. Willowood at Mustang residents—and their loved ones—have peace of mind knowing that our professionally trained team members are on hand 24/7 if their health needs change. We assist residents who need extra help with daily activities such as medication management, dressing, bathing, cooking, or cleaning.

Can Assisted Living Residents Still Participate in Their Favorite Hobbies and Activities?

The hassle-free lifestyle of assisted living provides residents with even more time, energy, and freedom to exercise their independence and pursue the activities and interests they love. Willowood at Mustang offers a robust activities calendar including exercise and cooking classes, game and movie nights, informational presentations, trips to local attractions as well as other programs and activities. The community also has an array of campus amenities, including a library and beauty salon, an outdoor dining area and religious services, too!

Will I Become Lonely or Isolated?

At Willowood at Mustang, you will be surrounded by a caring team and many friendly residents!  Assisted living residents have access to communal spaces that encourage socialization and residents are invited and encouraged to join groups and campus clubs to help them meet people, including peers and service providers. The Willowood at Mustang community can accomplish this with the help of a full-time Life Enrichment Director and a Wellness Director, who organize the scheduled social events and activities, providing plenty of opportunities for residents to make new connections with friends and neighbors.
