Frequently Asked Questions
1.How do I know if a senior living community is right for me?
Independent Living is right when you can take care of yourself and you answer "Yes" to any of the following:
- Would you enjoy participating in outings, craft projects, card games, or specialty clubs like a Book Club or Veteran's Club?
- Would you benefit from regular exercise like walking on the nature trail or taking a stretching and balance class?
- Would you benefit from having all the worries of everyday life - taking care of lawn, maintenance given to our staff, paying all utility bills, who cares for your home while traveling and more—taken care of?
2.What is the difference between Independent Living and Assisted Living?
Independent Living (IL) provides active seniors with an engaging, independent lifestyle. Forsyth Station offers hospitality-enriched retirement living, providing residents with exceptional service, style, friendships and fun. Families appreciate the comfort of knowing their family members are secure and well cared for in their own homes. Assisted Living (AL) offers a comprehensive level of licensed care for residents who need assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs). Assisted Living offers supportive care thoughtfully tailored to meet the specific needs of each resident. Memory Care (MC) is a specialized type of assisted living that focuses on the care and well being of residents with cognitive challenges.
