Brigham City Senior Living
When looking for options for senior living, sometimes it’s hard to know where to start. There are many elements that are important to have in a living environment: a safe community, an uplifting and supportive environment, and the resources needed to help ensure the health and safety of you or your loved one. The good news is, The Gables has worked hard to provide you with exactly that kind of environment for senior living. We are thrilled to have one of our assisted living facilities located among the beautiful, tree-lined streets of Brigham City, Utah.

What is Assisted Living?
When looking for housing options for seniors, it is important to understand the services offered by each residential care facility. Each facility available for senior living will offer varying levels of independence and assistance to its residents. Assisted living is the ideal choice for seniors looking for an independent living lifestyle, while still offering assistance with certain day-to-day tasks or activities that seniors may need help with.
Where assisted living services will vary from facility to facility, the services will often include:
- One to three meals a day
- Medication monitoring
- Housekeeping and laundry services
- Personal care, including bathing and dressing
- Medical services
- Social and recreational activities
- 24-hr emergency services
Benefits of Assisted Living
There are many benefits that can result from moving to assisted living. Some of these benefits include:
Preventing Social Isolation
Seniors who are living alone are at a higher risk for social isolation. They are also at risk for increased feelings of loneliness and depression. Assisted living provides a community environment with staff and other wonderful residents who encourage participation in the social activities provided by assisted living facilities. By making the move to assisted living quickly, seniors can avoid the feelings of isolation that often accompany old age, and can prevent chronic loneliness which affects the social, physical, and emotional aspects of wellness.
Professional and Compassionate Care
Many residents who live in assisted living facilities need help with certain day-to-day tasks such as dressing, bathing, assistance with medication, hygiene, and more. Assisted living has staff members available around the clock to ensure that each resident’s personal needs are being met. These staff members are highly trained to help each resident receive the care and attention they need and deserve.
Independence and Adventure
Old age can be a difficult time of life for many people. That’s why assisted living facilities place much of their attention and emphasis on creating a fun and adventurous environment for their residents, so that regardless of what stage of life they are in they can experience life in its fullest through planned social activities and outings into the community.
Assisted living is a fantastic option for senior living because of the ability it gives seniors to let go of any burdensome chores or home maintenance that is required when living on your own. Although many residents who live at assisted living are very capable of managing and caring for their own home, sometimes it just becomes annoying or burdensome to upkeep. Assisted living allows residents to spend their time pursuing their passions and interests rather than shoveling snow, cleaning their house, cooking meals, or mowing their lawn. With the extra free time residents have because of the assisted living lifestyle, they have the opportunity to find a new hobby, plan a trip, or invest in an old interest or pastime.
Oftentimes planning and preparing food can be quite an ordeal. Day in and day out, taking care of cooking and preparing meals can become challenging and troublesome. Especially as one ages, it can be hard to make nutrition a priority. Assisted living mitigates this challenge by providing nutritious meals prepared by talented cooks. This allows for residents to enjoy a healthy and delicious meal without having to worry about the hassle of preparation or cleanup. Residents can take their meals in a main dining room with other friends, or in their room according to their preference.
As time goes on car ownership can become a hassle, and driving can become unsafe. Assisted living facilities offer transportation to grocery stores, local shopping, medical appointments, or other events. This allows for residents to have the opportunity to get out into the community and enjoy their independence without having to worry about car maintenance, weather, or health conditions that may make driving a hazard.
