Christian Assisted Living Communities in Oklahoma - Amenities

Seniors that are committed to living a life that is active and spiritually rich will want to find a Christian assisted living facility that focuses on delivering 4 critical amenities. In the absence of any of these, the next best choice may be to find an assisted living facility that is part of a larger Christian community and it set close to the church that anchors that community. Either way, these 4 amenities will have a serious positive impact on life.

Christian Retirement Communities in Oklahoma - Religious Amenities

  1. In Christian communities there is the church and that church provides its spiritual core. It’s a magnetic and joyful place that energizes its neighbors and works to bring each closer to finding a personal relationship with God. The chapel in a Christian assisted living facility play this same important role. It too provides the spiritual center of these communities where God is always in focus and prayer is woven into just about everything that happens. Whether seniors have found a Christian assisted living facility or a center in a Christian community, these churches and chapels have a critical role to play in their future.
  2. Pastors provide the next key amenity. They are the spiritual guides or shepherds in these communities, taking the congregation under their wings and actively working to help each member find their faith in God in real and meaningful ways. The best of these pastors has the ability to build rapport with all of their members so they can understand what each will need most from their faith. Again, whether they are found in a Christian assisted living facility or in a neighboring church, they are a critical resource for every faithful member of the community.
  3. Caregivers are charged with providing for basic daily needs and these needs can make seniors feel uncomfortably exposed and vulnerable. If these caregivers are true Christians though, this can get easier as the tenets of faith, hope, charity, compassion, and understanding, influence their efforts. This doesn’t not mean that caregivers that don’t share the faith, or who abide by a different set of beliefs, can’t administer effective care. It just means that when caregiver and seniors share these tenets, they are coming to care on common grounds that make things more comfortable. This is worth considering when looking at assisted living centers that are not Christian but are part of a Christian community.
  4. Being faithful requires more than just attending a weekly mass. It requires more than just a simple prayer of thanks before enjoying a meal. It requires effort. It requires learning. It requires a commitment to do God’s work in order to truly enjoy God’s greatest blessings. In Christian assisted living centers and the larger Christian community, this is supported by prayer meetings, bible readings and bible study, and active participation in various Christian activities that work to help others that are in need. Activity schedules should leave no doubt that the teams managing these Christian assisted living facilities will be actively working to support this deeper commitment to faith, whether that is in-house or out in the local Christian community.

Christian Assisted Living in Oklahoma - General Amenities

When people are working, and supporting families, the longing for a simpler and happier life in retirement isn’t all that unusual. It’s not too hard to imagine how much more enjoyable life will be as weight of responsibilities eases. Unfortunately, getting to that stage brings a new set of challenges for many, that are the direct result of aging. Aching bones, arthritic joints, failing memory, reduced strength and stamina can make the reality of retirement far different from what was imagined.

Assisted living centers are designed to ease all of these discomforts so life in retirement can actually look and feel a lot like what seniors had been hoping for. It starts with caregivers, playing an active role in the daily activities associated with personal hygiene. These are typically known as ADL’s and they form the core of care provide by these teams. Complimenting that core is medication management and health monitoring that helps seniors stay healthier and more active.

Assisted living centers also eliminate most of the daily chores associated with house cleaning and maintenance, with teams that step in a deal with these requirements. That includes doing personal laundry, cleaning personal apartments and repairing things in those apartments so everything is running as it should, without stress.

Apartments are the way privacy is enjoyed in the assisted living facilities. Seniors have the ability to choose a space they will be comfortable calling home, from a set of studio apartments, one-bedroom suites, and semi-private or companion rooms and apartments. The semi-private rooms are normally shared by 2 or 4 seniors. Companion apartments are designed to accommodate two family members or close friends that are happy to share some while also saving some over the cost of an individual one-bedroom apartment.

For seniors fighting battles with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia, there is memory care. For these seniors, they enjoy a more secure and more organized living environment, where distractions are minimized so attention can be  given to therapies that help recover lost memories, and create new ones. These therapies are designed to help seniors and their loved ones reconnect while hopefully slowing the progress of these diseases.

No matter that form of care is required, assisted living facilities strive to provide three really enjoyable meals each day. They are part of a menu of dishes that offer great favorites while introducing some new things seniors may come to love. They are prepared by professional teams, guided by strained dieticians, and enjoyed in the company of fellow seniors, joining together in fine dining rooms. Seniors also enjoy all-day snacks that help them maintain blood sugar and energy levels.

It may not be exactly what seniors were hoping for when hoping to find a Christina assisted living facility in Oklahoma, but there are definitely some good options that will help them live active and spiritually fulfilling lives.
