Life in a Catholic assisted living facility begins in prayer, with the Holy Mass marking the start of each day. This is a Eucharistic mass that held in the chapel and is often broadcast to all of the apartments as well so even those seniors that can’t get to the chapel can enjoy the service. For those seniors that wish, they can receive communion in their apartments as well so no one is left wanting.

Prayer is an important part of each day as well, so seniors can expect to have times where groups will gather to pray the Rosary, while also pausing for the prayers of Devine Mercy and the Angelus, at 3 and 6 PM each day.

Catholic Assisted Living in Virginia - General Amenities

How old someone is, has nothing to do with how many years they’ve lived, and everything to do with their mental attitude. Seniors are old when they allow the challenges of age to get the best of them. When they refuse to give in and actually fight back, they change the entire paradigm of aging on its head. This is where assisted living facilities come into the picture.

Together with their senior residents, assisted living facilities work to alleviate the impact off aging by providing direct assistance with those things that are often most immediately impacted. For example, seniors will find a helping hand to get out of bed and into the bathroom in the morning. Assisted living residents have direct assistance with showering and bathing when needed. Residents will get direct help with grooming and dressing. When they need a sure hand so they can eat enjoyably, that help will be there as well. Plus, they get help managing meds so everything they need to do to stay healthy is taken care of.

Happy seniors are healthier seniors and active seniors are definitely happier, so assisted living facilities design a series of activities that help seniors stay active. They include many things but the staples include arts & crafts, gardening, cooking, needle work, games and various types of entertainment. They also include educational opportunities that help keep minds active too. Throw in fitness programs and various types of outings and days are indeed full of great things to keep body, mind and spirit in great shape.

These assisted living centers provide three meals a day that are both enjoyable and healthy. They are typically served in community dining rooms that look and feel like excellent restaurants. They are guided by dieticians and typically executed by professional chefs. And in between meals, there are healthy all-day snacks that keep energy levels right where they need to be.

For seniors suffering with dementia (Alzheimer’s), there is memory care. Assisted living facilities that provide this care will have special areas set aside for these patients that are more secure, less confusing and generally much more ridged in their schedule since consistency helps these seniors stay connected to the world around them.

For private spaces, seniors can choose from semi-private suites, studio units and one- or two-bedroom apartments. The two-bedroom apartments are typically referred to as companion suites that can be shared with a family member of close friend.
