Why Retirement Living During COVID-19 is Still the Right Choice

During the time of COVID-19, many seniors as well as their families are nervous about the health, wellness and safety of either themselves or their loved ones. Now more than ever, this is leading seniors and their families to choose retirement living.

“Seniors as well as their families are choosing retirement living for a number of reasons,” says Allison Yancey, Executive Director of Residences at Wellpoint, an Independent Living, Assisted Living and Memory Care community in Huntsville, Alabama. “Not only do they provide seniors with a lifestyle, services and amenities that can make their days easier, but they also provide peace of mind for families knowing that their loved ones are safe, cared for and engaged – even when they can’t be with them. This is an uncertain time for many families and we are hoping to make this time easier and more secure for everyone throughout our community.”
