Why Senior Living is a Great Choice for Veterans

Posted on: October 27th, 2016 by hhmin

As October is winding down and as we gear up for the coming holiday season, we tend to forget a very important day: Veteran’s Day. On November 11, the many men and women who have served our nation are honored for their sacrifice and bravery in the armed forces. At Holly Hall, we honor our veterans with a Veteran’s Day breakfast! We want our residents to feel a part of our community in every way possible, and that includes recognizing their previous service. For those who have not yet joined our community, here are a few reasons why Holly Hall is great for retired veterans.

A Sense of Community Within Retirement Communitiessenior community houston

We emphasize community because it contributes so much to the happiness of our residents. Members of our community who served in the military appreciate the sense of camaraderie and friendship that is deeply ingrained in every branch of service. As adults get older, they often find themselves lonely or without many people around with whom to connect. Social interaction is vital to the mental health of everyone. We host many events throughout each month that focus on bringing people together for a good time.

Independent Living for Veterans

Being able to survive independently is part of military training. Independence is something no one likes to give up, especially when they can be entirely self-sufficient. Veterans who are still independent but don’t want the responsibility of caring for a house will enjoy independent living in Houston. We offer cottages and apartments perfect for the person who simply wants to relax through retirement. At Holly Hall, you can be entirely independent without sacrificing the community atmosphere our residents love.

Senior Living that Keeps You Active

A physical fitness regimen is often an important part of retired veterans’ lives. Having been in shape during their service for so long, it can be a huge change of lifestyle when staying in shape is no longer part of their daily routine. Staying physically fit keeps your body healthy and allows it to heal quicker if it’s injured. From Tai-Chi to low impact aerobics, we offer our residents several kinds of fitness classes to attend.

On Site Rehabilitation Services

For veterans who might have been injured during their service, often times those injuries rear their ugly heads when they get older. Many times, surgery is needed to fix the injury and the rehabilitation period can be long and difficult. Going through rehabilitation shouldn’t mean worrying about getting to a physical therapist, which is why, at Holly Hall, we offer rehabilitation services in house! Our veterans should focus on getting better and learning to work with their previous injuries. It’s also worth nothing that we’re conveniently located 10 minutes from the VA hospital and transport our residences there and back for treatments frequently.
