The highly-regarded senior living community network debuts a new digital discussion space
SAVANNAH, GA / ACCESSWIRE / August 5, 2022 / It is with great pleasure that Thrive Senior Living, operator of the Savannah, Georgia-based senior living community The Social at Savannah, announces that it has launched a new podcast, as well as published its inaugural episode. This digital discussion space will focus on all matters relating to senior living, as well as serve as a platform to make community announcements for its network of senior living communities.
In the premiere episode, which is titled Navigating Senior Living: How to Know When It’s Time to Consider Senior Living, the podcast’s Chief Storyteller Steven Farrell sits down with Thrive Senior Living’s Vice-President of Sales and Operations Michelle Anderson to have a conversation about how best to recognize when the time has come to consider senior living.
In one important section dealing with independent living communities, Farrell asks Anderson outright when the best time is to put thought into senior living. “Ideally, people would consider senior living when they’re doing their retirement planning; when they’re in their fifties and they’re purchasing a long-term care policy to help pay for senior living,” Anderson responds, before addressing the reticence of some to think about the practicalities of that stage of life in any great depth and urging them do so for their own sake. “When you retire, you’re starting that next chapter, and maybe you’re around the age of 70-but what happens fifteen years later, or ten years later, or even five years later? When you don’t necessarily want the burdens of the upkeep of the home? You look at communities that offer an independent living lifestyle, and there’s so much freedom! Somebody else maintaining the property itself, the housekeeping, there are some meals included-things like that.”
Further along in the episode, the subject of assisted living is discussed. “When you think about assisted living, that decision is oftentimes spawned by a need versus a want,” Anderson says, elaborating, “It can be chronic health problems, it can be struggles with maintaining medications, it can be challenges with eating, it can be physical mobility challenges, but there can also be an aspect of isolation.” The duo then go on to explore the topic in further detail, remarking how joining an assisted living community can bring with it more personal freedom, socialization, and mobility for people with such issues when compared with living alone.
