Hingham MA (PRWEB) December 15, 2015
Welch Healthcare and Retirement Group’s Allerton House Assisted Living Communities, located in five towns along the Massachusetts South Shore, are gearing up for the New Year with an exciting roster of events. These events are designed to engage and inform seniors and their adult children about the assisted living lifestyle. They include Lunch & Learn events, concerts, programs on planning for the future and themed luncheons.
According to the U. S. Census Bureau by 2050 there will be nearly 84 million Americans who are 65 years-old or older – nearly double the figure of 43.1 million in 2012. The increased number of older adults will continue to fuel demand for senior housing, personalized care and socialization services such as those provided by Welch Healthcare and Retirement Group’s assisted living communities.
To encourage socialization, the five Allerton Houses are opening their events to seniors and families who have a serious interest in assisted living. According to the Massachusetts Assisted Living Facilities Association (Mass ALFA), assisted living residences have a dual purpose. The communities are designed for individuals 62 and older who need personalized care and supportive services and housing to meet their needs. Additionally, assisted living is defined by assistance with the activities of daily living that an individual may require. These may include routine activities such as bathing, dressing, grooming, or eating. Allerton House Assisted Living Communities provide supportive housing and services in an environment that emphasize dignity and independence.
