Aging Seniors Find Many Living Options in Chattanooga
It’s hard to talk with the Terry Thompkins, Executive Director of Ascension Living Alexian Village without first making mention of their beautiful setting on Signal Mountain near Chattanooga, Tennessee. If you have never been there look it up! The terrain is amazing. No matter where older adults may be on their retirement spectrum – living independently or receiving higher acute care – the community property comes with beautiful views of the Cumberland Plateau of East Tennessee.
In this latest episode of Off Your Rocker: A SeniorVu Podcast we shine the Community Spotlight on this special Continuing Care Retirement Community. Though we are more than seven months into this coronavirus pandemic, Ascension Living Alexian Village is still moving in new residents. Their COVID-19 protocol is reviewed often and provides a safe routine to help keep current residents virus-free and help new residents move into the community safely.
Ascension Living is finding an uptick in the number of new move-ins as more seniors near Chattanooga are choosing to downsize and replace home isolation with a place that offers no maintenance, frequent wellness checks, housecleaning, laundry, quality meals and socialization – all benefits rarely found for seniors who choose to remain living in their homes. In this podcast, Terry explains why it has never been a better time to be a part of the Ascension Living Alexian Village community.
Terry also discusses the upcoming virtual event hosted by his community. On November 13 at 11:30 a.m. the public is encouraged to join the virtual conversation to learn more about the family of services Ascension Living offers in Chattanooga. Since the conversation will be live attendees can get questions answered – whether they need extra help while living at home this winter or need a better understanding of possible move to a more carefree lifestyle.
