Dispelling Senior Living Myths

Category: Senior Living

Author: Justin Roach, 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 Vitalia North Royalton community and services.

At the age of 18, I immersed myself in the senior living industry and haven’t looked back since! I’ve worked in various roles including culinary, wellness, therapy, and human resources, eventually transitioning into the role of Executive Director. With nearly 18 years of experience in senior living, each day still brings something new.

What drives my passion is the significant impact I can have on the lives of our residents, families, and staff. Cultivating strong relationships forms the foundation of our community, and I take great pride in this. Every interaction deepens my understanding of everyone, contributing to a tighter-knit and more supportive community overall.

Preserving Freedom: Redefining Independence in Senior Living Communities

In the realm of senior living, a common misconception is the belief in the loss of independence. Contrary to this notion, senior living communities are designed to preserve residents’ autonomy for as long as possible. Here, residents have the freedom to personalize their space, dine on their schedule, engage in preferred activities, and cherish moments with loved ones. Assisted living communities empower residents to maintain independence, while providing necessary support. Residents enjoy newfound freedom from homeownership responsibilities, amplifying feelings of independence and focusing on personal well-being. Our commitment lies in nurturing and safeguarding residents’ independence, while ensuring assistance is readily available when needed.

We showcase the vibrant lifestyle during tours and conversations. We emphasize residents’ autonomy, diverse activities, and personalized amenities. Interacting with current residents offers firsthand insights into the enriching community dynamics and the fulfillment of senior living.
