Maintaining Independence in Assisted Living

September 26, 2023 | CC Young General

After a debilitating accident, Eileen found herself wearing a brace on her leg and bound to a wheelchair. She had difficulty doing daily tasks, such as getting dressed and showering. After her family realized that she needed more appropriate interventions than what they could offer her, Eileen came to us. Initially, she came for our respite program. She received care that focused on medication and symptom management while getting assistance meeting her daily needs. Her care plan also included social programs and events, such as aquatic therapy, technology classes, and other amenities that helped strengthen her body, enrich her mind, and nourish her spirit.

As Eileen participated more fully in these social programs, she started to feel as if she was an important member of the community. She was no longer just a patient or resident, but rather a contributor to something bigger than herself. Her initial contract of three months was extended as she decided to stay. She loved the socialization and the people she met at CC Young. Even though she is still in a wheelchair, she is able to independently navigate her surroundings and actively participate in her community to the fullest extent possible.

This is just one of many real stories of people who have joined our thriving Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) in East Dallas, TX and have decided to stay for an extended period due to the strong sense of hope and belonging fostered here. Keep reading to discover what assisted living at CC Young is like. Eileen, along with hundreds of other residents, ultimately finds renewed purpose and meaning in our beautiful and thriving assisted living community.

Assisted Living in Dallas at CC Young

Here at CC Young, we offer two beautiful assisted living residences for our seniors: The Hillside and The Vista. Seniors can enjoy a wide range of life-enriching initiatives at both of these living accommodations. Our programs promote independence, foster lifelong friendships, and encourage socialization through walking, talking with other residents, and cognitive exercises. By building stronger relationships, seniors can achieve total well-being and enhanced function. The goal is for our residents to maintain their independence and enjoy a fulfilling life.

The Importance of Social Programs and Events

We promote a sense of belonging in our community by engaging in social programs and events within our nurturing walls. We invite our seniors to take part in social enrichment activities every day. Some of the programs and events we offer include fitness events, computer classes, massage therapy sessions, and other special interest groups. Additionally, we offer a wide range of amenities at The Point and Pavilion, a 20,000-square-foot space that houses classrooms, art galleries, auditoriums, a fitness center, a library, a meditation chapel, and other life-enriching activities. At CC Young, seniors have numerous opportunities to engage their senses, minds, and bodies, which creates a vibrant and thriving community feel.

How We Help You Maintain a Sense of Purpose and Meaning

What we strive for with all of our senior residents is a strong sense of purpose and meaning. We want our seniors to feel that they can easily contribute their ideas and creations for the betterment of the community. For example, we have a knitting group in which our seniors knit baby hats, which are then distributed to hospitals around the northern Virginia area. With activities such as these, seniors can experience a sense of purpose and feel that they are truly living, rather than simply existing.

Francis, one of our beloved residents, has become a strong advocate and supporter of our senior community. After moving into our assisted living facility and participating in the various amenities and programs available, she quickly became a valued member of our community. Her camaraderie with fellow residents led her to stay and become an inspiration for others who may be hesitant to explore assisted living options. Through her actions, Francis has discovered greater meaning as she helps other seniors achieve their purpose.
