Winter brings its share of outdoor hazards. Days that are shorter on light, the cold, snow, and ice.

Roads are dangerous with ice and even black ice. Same for sidewalks. And going outside in the frigid cold just isn’t fun. Throw in a global pandemic and new COVID-19 variants and it definitely can bring on a case of the winter blues.

Another aspect of winter that can be discouraging for people is staying inside can leave them feeling lonely and isolated from loved ones. These are all reasons to consider whether winter is the right time for moving to a senior living community.

Moving to a senior living community such as Regency at Augusta Assisted Living & Memory Care may be the right move for you. It’s a safe move and offers benefits you can’t get at your home.

Why Move Now?

Winter is a great time to move to a senior living for a number of reasons. For example, the National Institute on Aging cites statistics that show one in three people age 65 and older fall each year. The threat of falling and suffering serious injuries only worsens in winter.

Whether it’s maintaining your home, shoveling your driveway, porch, or sidewalk, or making a run for groceries, you don’t have to worry about any of these things at Regency at Augusta. 

Sidewalks and roads are cleared and safe, and we take care of the maintenance, snow and ice removal, and any other issues. If you did experience an issue, we can quickly come to your aid with experts in the medical field.
