For many of us, childhood memories are filled with recollections of Sundays with Grandma and Grandpa going out for ice cream, visiting a baseball game, or simply hearing stories and playing at home.
While many of us struggle to find some alone time in our busy lives, many seniors experience a significant amount of time on their own. Rather than providing time away from the hustle and bustle of day-to-day life, significant time alone has a negative impact on seniors.
Making the move into senior living is a major decision that involves careful consideration of many different elements. Most certainly, it is also a time to ask and gain insight from a range of questions.
Here at Magnolia Manor, we meet with prospective residents and their family members every day, providing tours of our eight campuses in southern Georgia while providing answers and insight into the most frequently asked questions about senior living.
