My 85 year old father is very independent. He still drives himself to appointments and to run errands. However, since my mother died he is lonely. I am also concerned that maintaining his home on his own is getting to be too much for him. I wondered if there are other independent residents like my dad living at The Bristal? I think he would enjoy the companionship of having people with similar interests and hobbies close by. – Veronica in Armonk, New York
Companionship and freedom from the responsibilities of maintaining a home are two of the main reasons independent residents make a move to a senior living community. Residents can come and go as they like and participate in as many or as few of the scheduled cultural and recreational programs as they choose. It is also common to see informal groups of residents playing card games or working on a volunteer project.
Your father can also bring his car with him to any of The Bristal communities. We offer complimentary, dedicated parking for our residents.
