Have you ever wondered what the benefits of sharing a room in a senior living community are? Sharing a room with your senior living neighbors has numerous benefits. It helps socialize, it’s an extended family, and it’s safer. Each assisted living facility is different and will have its own policies regarding roommates. Some facilities allow the resident to choose their roommate while others require staff to assign roommates based on a variety of factors—gender, age, cognitive abilities, and more—to best match roommates up.
It’s also cost-effective to live in a roommate-style apartment within an assisted living facility. Most families say their loved one doesn’t do well with others but are eventually pleasantly surprised to see how their family member has flourished with their new companion.
Whether sharing the same room or two separate rooms, assisted living facilities are ideal for roommates aged 55+ that may need a little extra help. The staff at these facilities are committed to making your move-in as simple as possible. With so many benefits to living in an assisted living facility, you and your loved ones will gain a sense of ease knowing each other is cared for.
