Promoting Mental Health and Wellness at Hillside Senior Living

Assisted Living in Ann Arbor

How is your loved one adjusting to assisted living?

Are they having a problem with the sense of belonging and connection to the community?

Are you concerned for their mental health?

The move to an assisted living facility is a significant life change for your loved one. It often involves leaving behind familiar surroundings, friends, and routines, which can trigger feelings of loss, isolation and anxiety. Additionally, many residents may be coping with chronic health conditions, limited mobility, or cognitive decline, further increasing their vulnerability to mental health issues.

At Hillside Terrace Senior Living in Ann Arbor, we promote mental health and wellness by:

1.    Establishing a supportive environment - We strive to create an environment that fosters a sense of belonging. This can be achieved by joining our community events such as outings and other group activities around campus.
2.    Providing access to mental health services - These services are essential for residents suffering from depression or anxiety. Our team of care professionals can help you find comfort and help you with personalized care and treatment.
3.    Encouraging physical activity - Exercise is crucial for a healthy body and mind. We provide exercise class 6 days a week, walking group, and have access to physical therapy tailored to your needs and ability.
4.    Fostering meaningful engagement - Hobbies and activities help combat your feelings of loneliness and boredom. 
5.    Supporting healthy nutrition - We provide your adult relatives with a variety of nutritious meals, including diabetes-friendly options. Proper nutrition goes a long way toward improving your loved one’s quality of life.
6.    Cultivating a culture of empathy and compassion - These are essential components of effective caregiving. Our assisted living staff receives training on how to communicate effectively with residents, listen attentively to their concerns, and provide emotional support.
