5 Reasons To Choose New Horizon Residential Care Homes

In recent years, the choice between large assisted living facilities and small residential assisted living homes has become a topic of discussion for families seeking the best care options for their loved ones. While some may argue that larger facilities offer more engagement and social activities, it is crucial that families consider the individualized care and unique advantages provided by residential assisted living. We invite you to consider the following benefits:-

1. Individualized and Personalized Care
One of the most significant advantages of choosing residential assisted living is the level of personalized care seniors receive. At New Horizon Homes, our caregivers are able to provide tailored attention, addressing the specific needs and preferences of each resident. This allows for a more supportive and compassionate environment, enhancing both physical and emotional well-being.

2. Familiarity and Community Bonding
At New Horizon Homes, a strong sense of community and camaraderie is fostered. With fewer residents, our residents have the opportunity to form meaningful relationships with both caregivers and fellow residents. These close-knit connections often lead to a better quality of life and overall happiness for seniors, combating feelings of isolation and loneliness.

3. Reduced Risk of Falls and Health Decline
Whilst we can not completely eliminate all falls, their risk of falls and sharp health declines often associated with large institutional environments is greatly diminished for our residents. With a resident-to-caregiver ratio of 4:1 and 3:1 in other cases, constant supervision and assistance can be provided, reducing the likelihood of accidents. Accessible layouts in our homes are designed with our residents’ safety in mind, ensuring a secure living space.

4. Enhanced Engagement and Socialization
Contrary to popular belief, residential assisted living homes provide opportunities for engagement and social activities that can be customized to suit individual needs. At New Horizon Homes, our caregivers can tailor activities and outings, promoting mental stimulation and enabling our residents to remain actively involved in hobbies and interests.

5. Family-like Atmosphere
Often described by our clients as being “Haimisha”, our homes exude a warm, family-like atmosphere, which lends itself to a more comfortable and homely living experience. By residing in a smaller, more intimate setting, our residents are able to build trusting relationships with caregivers, fostering a sense of belonging and familiarity.
