Senior living has changed significantly over the last few decades. Traditionally, assisted living communities focused on providing healthcare services to older adults. While these services are still important, today’s Westlake senior retirement communities offer residents a much wider range of amenities.
At Varenita of Westlake, we deliver a high level of comfort and luxury tucked away in Westlake Village, California. Our resort-style living is a welcome change of pace for older adults challenged with the activities of daily living. . We give residents the tools and resources they need to thrive and live their best lives.
Why Amenities Matter for Senior Living in Thousand Oaks
Many people move to senior living because they can access assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs) and receive healthcare services. The amenities found at assisted living communities may rival those found at opulent resorts, however, they play an important role in supporting a worry-free lifestyle which has a positive correlation to quality of life as we age.
Some of the reasons why amenities are an essential part of senior housing in Westlake are:
- Reduction of senior loneliness and social isolation
- Stimulation of the brain for mental fitness
- Prevention of depression and mood enhancement
- Physical activity to maintain a healthy body
- Consumption of nutritious meals to help support a healthy lifestyle
- Rest and relaxation to reinvigorate and revitalize
- Pursuit of new and previously loved activities
