LOVELAND, C.O. - ‘Families will know their family member is safe and is going to be taken care of, even as needs change. And for residents, they will know the place and can interact with their friends even if their level of assistance changes,” said Holly Turner, Good SamaritanSociety – Loveland Village senior living manager.
“The benefits of aging in place is tremendous mentally and emotionally,” said Turner.
‘We had a resident in skilled care, and his wife was living in an apartment. Every day she would get a wheelchair and bring him back to the apartment, where she would make dinner and they could watch their TV shows. When they parted in the evening, she knew he’d be taken care of, relieving the burden of caring for him but giving the security and satisfaction of knowing they can be together,” said Turner.
