AVIVA Woodlands welcomes and encourages the active participation of adult children (or other loved ones) in the process of choosing a senior living community, and throughout the life of the resident in the community. We suggest that you begin by reviewing these Frequently Asked Questions and the glossary of terms. Certainly, it’s helpful to review the various literature that’s available, but the best measure of a senior living community is to visit—to talk with the staff and experience the environment. We invite you to call for a personal tour or for additional information.
That’s a great question. You’ve probably had the opportunity to see your parent or other loved one over a period of years. The aging process includes a natural slowing down, and you may see that certain day-to- day functions – such as bathing, dressing, grooming, eating, and remembering to take medications – have become a challenge. At that point, you’ll find yourself questioning how viable it is for that person to live on his or her own, out of concern for their safety and well-being.
