Dispelling Senior Living Myths

Category: Senior Living

Author: Courtney Darby, Executive Director

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 Castlewood Senior Living community and services.

For nearly 14 years, I’ve worked in senior living as a nurse, and I absolutely loved it. Thanks to exceptional mentors and a supportive company that values growth, I’ve risen to the role of Executive Director.

I adore the Castlewood community and everyone in it! Our team is remarkable, delivering exceptional love and care to all our residents.

Dispelling Myths: Senior Living as a Gateway to Continued Happiness and Fulfillment

One of the greatest myths about senior living, in my opinion, is that it institutionalizes people. However, this misconception implies that moving into a senior living community signifies the end of happiness.

I invite all prospective residents and guests to tour our community. By doing so, we want them to witness firsthand how home-like and social senior living can be. For our current residents and their families, we provide a nurturing environment tailored to meet individualized needs. It’s essential for families to see their loved ones thrive in a senior living environment, which ultimately boosts happiness and adds more years to their lives.

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.
