While solitary living provides considerable independence to aging retirees, it can also be a source of uncertainty and concern, especially when it comes to security matters. Even if a neighborhood watch is present in your area, it may not be enough to assist elders living alone who suddenly find themselves in an emergency due to an accident, injury, or foul play.
About Our Secure Living Neighborhoods
Blue Ridge is a small town within Georgia’s Fannin County which was selected for its low population density and quiet atmosphere. Most people here know one another and crime is extremely low, but our retirement community still employs a full-time security team that is professionally trained and available 24 hours a day to ensure residents within the community are protected.
Benefits of Having Secure Neighborhoods in Your Senior Living Community
No one wants to feel as if they are living in a prison or fortress, which is why our security team is always discreet, remaining quietly in the background while keeping a watchful eye on the community to ensure the safety of residents and caretakers. One of the biggest fears that retirees have of joining a conventional retirement home is that they will have to give up far too much autonomy and independence in exchange for being cared for.
The good news is that Blue Ridge is not a conventional retirement home, and is more like an upscale vacation resort or country club. Our residents have substantial independence and can come and go as they please. While we do maintain rules and guidelines like any community, you’ll find that everything we ask of you is perfectly reasonable.
When Should You Consider Moving into a Senior Living Community?
Members of the 65+ age group face a number of potential threats. Aside from their higher susceptibility to accidents and illness, criminals often target elders because they are perceived as being well off financially yet physically frail and incapable of defending themselves. Sometimes criminals use brute force, while other times they will resort to deceit to con retirees out of their life savings.
Elders that live alone, without children or grandchildren to look after them are particularly vulnerable. And it doesn’t help that some jurisdictions across the United States are planning to defund police, plus law enforcement officials all over the country are resigning due to coronavirus mandates, leaving police forces understaffed. This creates a scenario where neighborhoods across the United States may be vulnerable to brazen criminals looking to take advantage of the situation.
Why Choose Blue Ridge?
Our upscale retirement community is gated and situated in an opulent neighborhood. Our security team is courteous and respectable and will screen all visitors entering the facility, plus they will come to the aid of members that need help. Each private dwelling is furnished and equipped with an emergency call system that will allow residents to contact our security team at all hours of the day, which gives retirees peace of mind.
