Originally posted by Environments for Aging - October 5, 2020. "With the increasing growth in Oklahoma City and surrounding neighborhoods, HarborChase of South Oklahoma City wanted to offer a luxury hospitality-enriched assisted living and memory care community to compete with the more dated options in the surrounding market. Opening in March , the new 107,000-square-foot location features 112 units including 80 assisted living and 30 memory care with a mix of studio, one-, and two-bedroom floor plans.
Harbor Retirement Associates is extremely excited to be among the first communities to welcome guests after what seems to have been a very long and extended period of time. The safety of our residents who we serve, and our associates who help to create impeccable moments for them, will continue to be our first priority.
Technology has enhanced our lives in countless ways; we can order groceries from the comfort of our homes, watch movies anywhere, anytime, and stay connected with friends and family during a time of unprecedented distancing. Technology makes our lives more convenient, but it also has the ability to enrich our lives and, in some cases, improve our health.
In the United States alone, more than 5 million people are living with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. As the aging population grows, this number is expected to nearly triple by 2060. Because of this, the need for high-quality, effective memory care programs is crucial now more than ever.
There may come a time when one or both of your parents require additional care. This realization may bring up emotions, complex planning, and conflicts amongst siblings, and these feelings can intensify should your parents have differing care needs.
At Harbor Retirement Associates, we believe in Celebrating Senior Living. This would not be possible without dedicated, professional leaders who selflessly and tirelessly apply their God-given talents in pursuit of that elevated standard.
As a parent or family member ages, it’s not uncommon for families to experience some form of conflict while navigating senior care. These situations require numerous responsibilities, decisions, and concerns, and when multiple people are involved, it can lead to different opinions and disagreements. In addition, as heightened emotions are at play during this time, conflicts can arise more easily and quickly.
Respite care is a valuable service that provides numerous benefits to older adults, family caregivers, and others. Respite care can assist a caregiver during vacations or appointments, as well as provide them with a temporary rest from caregiving duties.
However, respite care is just as valuable for an individual considering care options for themselves. It allows them to experience the amenities, services, and support an assisted living community can offer should they ever want to use them in the future.
Residents at HarborChase Senior Living communities can enjoy a new level of retirement. One that is enhanced by engaging events, activities, social gatherings, and focused on personal choice.
