When Living at a Retirement Home, Use These Tips to Stay Independent, West Plains, Missouri

Living at a premier retirement home is fulfilling and nurturing, but it still is a significant transition from the freedom of being in your own home. However, there are things you can do to keep a firm grip on your independence. West Vue, with locations on Davis Drive and North Kentucky Avenue in West Plains, MO, is a retirement home known for its efforts to help residents maintain a sense of self-reliance. As a leader in elderly care, they work with each resident to create a comfortable environment. 

Here are three suggestions from Missouri’s most respected retirement home on how to stay self-sufficient in body and mind: 

  • Participate in Light Exercise: Keeping active with low-key walks or social dances has the power to make you stronger while leaving you less vulnerable to falls and injuries. Talk with your doctor about activities that are right for you. Regular exercise will improve your physical condition and reduce your need for assistance.
  • Retirement home West Plains MOStimulate Your Mind: Part of being independent is keeping your mind as active and nimble as possible. Adding a few crossword puzzles to your weekly routine, participating in trivia contests, or playing brain-stimulating games online will boost your cognitive energy and ability to make decisions. 
  • Seek Connections: Valuing your freedom doesn’t mean turning yourself into an island. Setting up regular visits with friends and family will not only energize you but motivate you to expand your social circle by nurturing relationships with new people in your retirement home. Enjoyable visits with others also might give you a greater appreciation of quiet time spent on your own.
