Moving to a senior living community means that your loved ones have to live away from their family members, so it’s perfectly normal to feel worried about your loved ones’ safety. However, here at Blue Ridge, our residents’ safety and security are our utmost priority, and we uphold that through our comprehensive safety measures. As such, you and your family members can have peace of mind while your loved ones are residing in our community, be it under Assisted Living or SHINE® Memory Care programs.
About Our Safety Measures
Do you know that falling is the leading cause of household injury? According to the National Council on Aging, one in four adults aged 65 and above is bound to fall each year. This is alarming news as falls can result in serious injuries such as brain damage and can even be fatal. As such, your loved ones must live in a safe and secure living space, where they can roam around without having to worry about slipping or poor lighting. In our apartments, these concerns are addressed by ensuring that all areas are well-lit and spacious. We have also installed emergency call systems in all the apartments, so your loved ones have access to medical assistance whenever and wherever they require it.
Unfortunately, more and more older adults fall victim to scams and are particularly vulnerable due to their old age and inability to protect themselves. Therefore, we make sure the neighborhood is guarded and gated 24/7, and only authorized personnel like family members and caregivers are allowed to enter. All visitors are required to go through a verification process before entering.
Benefits of Having Safety Measures in Your Senior Living Community
Having proper safety measures in our senior living community allows loved ones to concentrate on what’s truly important – regaining their health and keeping themselves busy with our wide variety of exclusive lifestyle programs. You and your family members now no longer have to worry about your loved ones’ protection and well-being, as they are being taken care of by our accommodating team members. In the case of loved ones getting injured, they will receive medical attention almost immediately.
When Should You Consider Moving into a Senior Living Community?
As your loved ones get older, they’ll realize that maintaining or improving their current living conditions is hard work. Household chores such as cleaning and doing laundry can prove hazardous at times, as loved ones are required to reach high shelves and mop wet floors. Here at Blue Ridge, all these daily tasks can be handled under our Impressions Housekeeping and Maintenance program, which provides complimentary cleaning of the apartments and community on a weekly basis.

Whether your loved ones are residing in our Assisted Living or SHINE® Memory Care program, you can rest assured they are well taken care of. By enforcing strict safety measures throughout our senior living community, residents can live happily and healthily without fear of being threatened or harassed.
