Educational Resources from Our Old Bridge, NJ, Senior Living Community:
At Reformed Church Home in Old Bridge, NJ, we know that decisions about senior living and aging gracefully come with a host of questions about staying active and healthy, living environments and choices, and so much more. That’s why our senior living community has developed a set of educational resources for current residents, prospective residents, and their families. From explaining the differences between independent living, assisted living and long-term nursing care to raising awareness about glaucoma, stroke prevention, fall precautions, and other health conditions, our team is dedicated to providing you with convenient access to helpful information.
Why research is important
When seniors and their families take the time to explore educational resources and actively engage in decision making about lifestyle and health issues, preparing for the opportunities and challenges of aging seem much less overwhelming. Over the coming months, our goal is to offer food for thought, conversation starters, and practical guidance on a variety of topics related to elder care.
