What Are the Benefits of Choosing a Smaller Senior Living Community?

Senior living communities are designed to meet the needs of older adults and provide them with a safe, supportive, and engaging environment. However, not all senior living communities are created equally! One factor to consider while searching for the right community for you is its size.

As a smaller, close-knit Daytona Beach senior living community, Sunscape Daytona Beach understands the positive impact that this type of atmosphere has on residents. Sometimes less really is more, and our team is sharing some of the benefits of choosing a smaller senior living community.

More Personalized Attention

With fewer residents, team members can get to know each resident on a more personal level. This means they can better understand your needs, preferences, and personality, leading to more individualized care and attention.

For example, at our Daytona Beach senior living community, our personalized levels of care and highly trained, compassionate team members focus on each resident’s specific needs, goals, and preferences. This leads to more meaningful connections and an enhanced senior living experience.

In larger communities, it can be challenging for team members to provide personalized attention, as they may have more residents to care for and less time to devote to each individual. This can lead to a one-size-fits-all approach to care that may not be suitable for every resident.

Greater Sense of Community

Smaller senior living communities often have a stronger sense of community. With fewer residents, getting to know your neighbors and forming close relationships is easier. This can help combat feelings of isolation and loneliness, which can be common among older adults and have a negative impact on overall well-being.

In a smaller community, you will have more opportunities to socialize and participate in engaging programs with other residents. This can help you to feel more connected with the community.

Intimate Living Spaces

Smaller senior living communities often have more intimate living spaces, which can be appealing to many individuals. In a smaller community, residents still have their own private apartments or co-living apartments, but the overall atmosphere can feel more personal and comfortable.

Close-knit communities tend to have a more positive and welcoming feeling compared to larger neighborhoods. Research suggests that the friendships, visiting, and borrowing and exchanging of favors with neighbors may offset the detrimental effects of social disadvantage by facilitating access to support and services that influence health, social, and emotional support.

In addition, smaller living spaces can be easier to navigate for individuals with mobility issues or other health concerns. They may be able to get around more easily and feel more in control of their living environment.

Peaceful & Comforting

Smaller senior living communities often have a more peaceful and relaxed setting than larger communities. With fewer residents, there is less noise or hustle and bustle, which can be beneficial for individuals who prefer a calm living space. In addition, smaller communities often have more outdoor space and greenery, which can provide a calming and rejuvenating environment.
