Assisted Living Amenities That Enhance Quality of Life

Assisted Living Amenities That Enhance Quality of Life

What do you think about when you consider your quality of life? According to the American Psychological Association’s definition, physical and emotional health, interpersonal relationships, opportunities to learn and grow, and independence are all important aspects of a high quality of life. 

If you’re considering a move to assisted living for yourself or a loved one, you might be worried that the move will diminish your quality of life. However, the right assisted living community can actually increase quality of life through a wide range of amenities.

At the Mission at Agua Fria assisted living in Peoria, AZ, we believe in empowering all of our residents to live well. Our services and amenities support your physical, emotional, social, and mental wellness. Keep reading to learn more about what we offer.

Amenities That Enhance Physical Health

Optimal physical health combines eating the right foods, keeping your body in motion, and seeing your doctor for regular check-ups. Handling it all alone can be challenging, but our amenities make it easy.

Dining And Nutrition

Strong bodies begin on the inside with the proper nutrition. Our outstanding dining services provide delicious, nutritious, chef-crafted meals in a fun, communal atmosphere. 

Some highlights include:

  • Rotating seasonal menu with many ingredients sourced locally
  • “Always available” menu full of your favorite options
  • “Mindful Scoop” newsletter and seminars that provide information about healthy eating
  • Monthly live cooking demos and tastings from our on-site chef
  • Monthly events celebrating food from around the world 
  • Meal delivery to your apartment when you are sick

Exercise Classes

Once your body is fueled well, you can burn off energy in our group exercise classes. From yoga to Zumba, we have something for everyone. All of our classes can be adjusted to fit every skill level, as well as any mobility or physical limitations. Regular exercise is good for both the body and the mind, helping you maintain muscle, balance, and mobility, as well as releasing endorphins to lift your mood. Group classes keep you connected to your community and also help keep you accountable.

Our health and wellness center is also a great place to receive any physical or occupational therapy you might want or require.

Access to Medical Care

Finally, assisted living means you will always have access to medical care. Every apartment has a 24-hour emergency response system in place, and our onsite nurse is available to help with medical needs as they arise. Trained and professional staff can also assist with medication management. 

Amenities That Enhance Emotional Health

When it comes to emotional health, our amenities provide ample opportunities for connection, community, and stress reduction, which are all essential components to your emotional well-being. 

Social Opportunities

To begin with, our well-stocked game and media rooms have everything you need to enjoy a game or movie night with your friends. The Mission at Agua Fria also provides plenty of opportunities to socialize and have fun with our scheduled outings, activities, arts and crafts classes, and more. 

Stress-Free Living

One of the most significant benefits of an assisted living community is its stress-free, maintenance-free lifestyle. Gone are the days of endless laundry and cooking and cleaning and traffic. Our linen and housekeeping services, dining services, and chauffeured transportation take care of the cumbersome chores, leaving you free to explore new interests and spend time with friends.

Pet-Friendly Apartments

Our four-legged friends are essential to our happiness, providing companionship and unconditional love. You don’t have to worry about leaving your beloved pet behind when you choose the Mission at Agua Fria assisted living in Peoria, AZ. All of our spacious apartments are pet-friendly.

Looking Your Best

Maintaining your appearance and grooming is a big part of feeling good about yourself. We help facilitate that need with our onsite hair salon and barber shop. In addition, if you need a little assistance with bathing, dressing, or grooming, our trained and caring staff is right there when you need them to help with these personal care activities. 

Opportunities To Learn And Grow

Don’t forget about your mental wellness! People thrive when given opportunities to keep learning and growing. At the Mission at Agua Fria, we support the mental health of our residents through classes and activities, seminars, and cultural outings. Our memory care program includes cognitive therapy for those living with memory loss, like cognitive games, music, art, and color therapy.

Amenities That Support Independence

Although you might worry that moving to an assisted living community will mean a loss of independence, access to assisted living amenities supports and encourages residents’ independence. How? 

Trained and professional staff stand ready to assist with daily living activities like medication management, incontinence care, grooming, bathing, dressing, and transferring. With just the right level of care, you never have to worry, day or night, if you need assistance. In addition, apartments can include additional safety features, like seated bathing or bars for support, to help facilitate your independence. 

The spacious, pet-friendly apartments come in various floor plans to suit your tastes. We understand that having the opportunity to personalize your home is vital to a sense of independence, and we encourage you to make it your own. When your personal belongings and decor surround you, you truly feel at home.
