When to Consider Senior Living

Being a part of a caring community—whether it be family, friends, or an organization—is known to reduce stress. When determining whether it’s time for senior living, ask yourself or a trusted loved one the following questions:

  1. Am I frequently socializing and connecting with others?
  2. Am I exercising regularly?
  3. Am I eating fresh, nutritious meals?
  4. Am I setting goals and enjoying a sense of purpose?

If you answered “no” to any of these questions, then it may indicate it’s time to consider senior living. Fortunately, you don’t have to decide alone; Jewish Pavilion is here to help.

While most seniors face major adjustments when transitioning to an elder-care community, Jewish seniors face additional challenges. Not only do they lose their homes, and many of their friends, but they also lose ties to their cultural heritage. This is where the Jewish Pavilion, a 501c3 non-profit, steps in. The Pavilion serves as a resource that provides room visits, festive holiday celebrations, and more to 450 Jewish residents across 50 senior facilities. The Jewish Pavilion promotes inclusion, and thousands of seniors of all faiths are welcomed into our programs.

The Orlando Senior Help Desk (407-678-9363) helps thousands of callers navigate their way through the daunting senior maze, alleviating caregiver stress while giving advice on all types of elder issues.
