Faithful seniors making the transition from independent to assisted living will already be members of a local synagogue where they are active and known as members of the congregation. The move to a Jewish assisted living center would hopefully allow them to transition their faithful activities as well, but what happens when there are no Jewish centers available. Well, the next best thing would be to find an assisted living center that can offer great care while being close enough to a Jewish synagogue where their faith can continue to be nourished and their sense of belonging will remain strong.
Jewish Assisted Living in Rhode Island - Religious Amenities
When the center is a Jewish assisted living facility, they will have a synagogue that is in easy reach. It may not be in-house but it will still be accessible and the services Jews enjoy as members of these congregations will still be available to them.
Faithful seniors welcome the guidance Rabbis offer. These are teachers and counselors, the leaders of worship services, and the calm port in the storm. In a Jewish assisted living center, they will be members of the care team. In other centers they may only have a consulting relationship with the assisted living center but will still lead a congregation where seniors can find support.
The community also helps seniors on the path to atonement. This is critically important since even the most faithful among us will occasionally stray from the path and sin. When that happens, God is there to welcome us back into His good graces if we truly repent and redouble our efforts to live a good life. The community provides access to all sorts of programs that help others as we help find our way back to God’s forgiveness.
The last element in a faithful Jewish life is the need to remain Kosher. This is easy in a Jewish assisted living facility with its kosher kitchen and trained staff. In other assisted living facilities, eating kosher may mean getting out int the community and finding groceries and caterers that can help with kosher meals. This makes finding an assisted living center that is at least connected to a Jewish community so important.
Jewish Retirement Communities in Rhode Island - General Amenities
Being old is a choice, and that choice has nothing to do with how many years have passed. It has everything to do with the spirit and the drive to live actively. That doesn’t mean seniors will have to ignore the reality of age’s challenges. That’s why they are considering an assisted living center and its care services. It just means that they will stubbornly refuse to accept a diminished life without a real fight and that fighting spirit is exactly the choice that differentiates aging adults from old folks.
To win this battle seniors need a solid team of caregivers and others that will help them face the realities of aging head on and work to limit the negative impact aging will have on them. This means, seniors get direct assistance with all of life’s basic daily requirements, those things that make all of us feel human and presentable. Bathing, grooming, dressing, staying mobile, being able to eat comfortably, and getting help to ensure medications are administered on time are all part of this care. Add to this, regular health monitoring that can identify health issues early, and seniors have more than a fighting chance to win this battle. And by the way, while they’re fighting this battle, housekeeping and maintenance teams are taking care of all the daily chores around the house so seniors don’t have to.
Memory care takes care to the next level, and is designed for seniors that are battling with various form of dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease. Assisted living facilities that offer this care, have unique sections of the center that are kept more secure, more organized and less distracting. This is also a space where therapies using things like music, sights, sounds, smells and tactile interactions help bring back some of the memories that have been lost, while helping seniors find fulfilling ways to enjoy their days, rather than getting lost in depression and frustration.
One more way to battle old age is to keeping active, doing those things that have always been cherished pastimes. Things like woodworking, gardening, crafting, needle work, music, and more, are brought together in a calendar of fun things to do that keep each day moving in a great direction. Add to this fitness programs, games and entertainment, and seniors quickly find great reasons to look forward to each new day in the assisted living centers.
Food is another great reason to look forward to each new day. Meals are served three times a day, with snacks in between. Dishes are designed to include the favorites of all the senior residents so everyone gets a chance to enjoy what they love and maybe discover some new things they will come to love. Food is professionally prepared to be delicious and healthy, and dining rooms are designed to allow friends to gather around the dining table and enjoy these just as they would if they’d gone out to a find restaurant.
Privacy doesn’t disappear in assisted living centers, neither does a senior’s ability to decide how they will spend their time. Each senior has the choice of a private apartment or semi-private room. If a private apartment, these are either studio units or one-bedroom apartments. In some cases, there are two0-bedroom apartments as well that companions or family members can share.
The choices for Jewish assisted living centers in Rhode Island may not be abundant, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t good alternatives for those that are willing make a few adjustments.
