Coloring Outside the Lines: Reimagining Common Senior Care Misconceptions

What comes to mind when you think of senior care? Is it a stereotypical “nursing home”? Subpar meals? High costs? There are many common misunderstandings and myths about senior care. It’s time to reimagine and set the record straight about what senior care at Masonicare is really all about!

Myth #1: All senior care is the same.

Misconception Reimagined: There are many different levels of senior care, depending on the needs of each person. Care is – and should be – as unique as each individual receiving it. Independent living offers a carefree lifestyle, free of maintenance and chores. Residents enjoy a variety of dining options, housekeeping, 24/7 security, plentiful amenities, health and wellness services, a wide-ranging calendar of trips and social events, and more. Assisted living offers a helping hand when needed with tasks such as bathing, dressing, grooming, personal laundry, and medication management while maintaining a full social calendar and active lifestyle. Memory care and long-term care offer higher levels of specialized care to ensure health and safety.

Myth #2: The food is mediocre at best.

Misconception Reimagined: Meals at Masonicare are not only healthy, but they are delicious. Our talented culinary teams take great pride in providing top-quality meals to residents. Variety is the spice of life, with menus changing often for all to enjoy.

Myth #3: Senior care is astronomically expensive.

Misconception Reimagined: There is truth to the adage “you get what you pay for”, and peace of mind is priceless. Senior living personifies peace of mind; with no worries about utilities, repair bills, or other costs associated with home ownership. The value is immeasurable, with protection from many of the instabilities and uncertainties in the world today.

We know not all senior care is created equal. There are many pieces of the puzzle that need to fit together to create a unique care experience and communities that are unlike any others.
