Debunking Senior Living Myths

Category: Senior Living

Author: Mark Stapleton, Regional Director of Operations

Arrow Senior Living is known for doing things a little differently and challenging the status quo within the industry. It’s just who we are! Even with all the technological conveniences of today such as social media and websites, it is still common to meet individuals with a skewed perception of what senior living looks like. In this blog, I want to share my senior living journey, why I remain committed to the industry, the biggest myth I believe exists, and how to help others overcome the myths surrounding our beautiful Vitalia Highland Heights community and services.

With a background in physical therapy focused on working with seniors, transitioning to senior living was a natural and enjoyable move for me. As an Executive Director, I still have the privilege of interacting with seniors. I also have the responsibility of alleviating many of the behind-the-scenes pressures associated with physical therapy..

The residents are the driving force behind my daily return to our community. Their unique perspectives and vibrant personalities never fail to brighten my day. I cherish the laughter and connections we share.

Experience the Vibrant Lifestyle: Debunking the Myth of Boredom in Senior Living Communities

One of the most pervasive myths about senior living is the belief that there’s nothing to do. Our communities offer a plethora of incredible events, outings, and entertainment opportunities every day. There’s always something exciting happening within our community.

To dispel this myth, we regularly invite prospects to our events to socialize and experience the vibrant atmosphere firsthand. By allowing them to “catch the vibe,” they can see for themselves the dynamic and engaging lifestyle our community offers. Our current residents play a crucial role in this process. They enthusiastically welcome prospects and showcase the lively atmosphere that defines life in our community.

I hope you found this helpful, and I encourage you to share it with others because here at Arrow, we are committed to reshaping the perception of senior living! Search #whatseniorlivinglookslike, and you will find so many great things that happen in our community every single day.
