It must be a dedicated space, available to all 24/7, where the focus is and will always be on building a personal relationship with God.

It is their personalities that often influence these communities, both in subtle and not so subtle ways. For seniors considering a Christian assisted living facility, this can be a critically important factor in the decision process.

They also provide medication management so seniors remain on a healthy path that allows them to remain active.
These assisted living facilities also relieve seniors from the need to worry about house cleaning and laundry, lawn cutting and snow removal, and pretty much everything else they may have done that needed a hammer or screwdriver. Heck, in assisted living facilities, seniors don’t even have to worry about changing a burnt lightbulb.
Private apartments have kitchens so seniors could cook for themselves if they wanted, but there’s a good chance they won’t. Assisted living centers provide three really great meals every day. Menus are created that offer both new and familiar dishes, so everyone finds something they will love. These dishes are then professionally prepared by trained culinary staff. They are served in very pleasant dining rooms, around comfortable tables where friends can gather and share the joy of sharing a great meal. So, while seniors can, they may not want to eat alone all that often.
The other important element in an assisted living facility is the company of other seniors, that are facing the same challenges, with the same positive outlook on life. Community activity planners help this happen by creating various activities that these seniors can come together and enjoy. Programs often include arts & crafts, various hand-on classes, educational seminars, entertainment, games, fitness sessions, community outings, along with many other fun ways to make each day meaningful and invigorating, both mentally and physically. In a good assisted living facility, life is never boring.
Apartments provide private space for seniors, so they can maintain a reasonably independent life, in their own comfortable home within these homes.
