Making the decision to move a loved one to an assisted care facility can be extremely difficult.

When faced with that choice, people often feel like they are failing as a spouse, a child, a friend, or a loved one, and that they are betraying the one that needs to move.

But in fact, moving your loved one to an assisted living facility where they can access 24/7 care from qualified medical professionals may be one of the best demonstrations of love and care that you may ever show.

That doesn’t mean you have to go in unprepared. Monarchs, one of South Africa’s premium assisted living facilities, is offering a FREE Month at Monarchs so that you and your loved one can experience first-hand the benefits of assisted living.

Here are just a few things you and your loved one can expect to experience during your Month at Monarchs and beyond.

  1. 24/7 care

Monarchs is fully equipped with around-the-clock compassionate caregivers that have been trained to help your loved one feel comfortable and taken care of.

All residents are given their own mobile emergency alert button so that should anything happen, they will receive the help they need quickly and effectively, and the whole site is protected by 24/7 security and CCTV.

From wellness clinics staffed by fully qualified nurses to chauffeurs that will transport your loved one to the many facilities and services in and around Monarchs, you can rest assured that your senior loved one will be in good hands during their FREE Month at Monarchs.

  1.   Supported Independence

Each of our rooms comes with its own kitchenette and en-suite bathroom, and your loved one is given the exact level of support they need to feel comfortable and in charge of their own lives.

Our facilities have 24/7 access to water and electricity, even during load-shedding, and your loved one will be given access to their own parking space. They can even bring their pet along if that will make them feel more comfortable! Your loved one will live the life they expect to live during their Month at Monarchs.

  1. Daily social and wellness activities

Yoga, hair and beauty salons, concierge services, as well as daily social and wellness activities and a fully equipped canteen will ensure that your loved one stays active and will be surrounded by friends and neighbours who are experiencing something similar.

  1. Peace of mind

We’re not going to sugarcoat it. Taking care of an elderly person can feel like a full-time job. As your loved one starts to feel their independence drain away, they can fall into a deep depression that is difficult to overcome.

This can put a strain on relationships and your own mental health as you watch someone you love deeply suffer.

A Month at Monarchs can put these concerns to rest. While visiting with us, your loved one will have access to a fantastic retired life, and you, as their caretaker, can rest assured knowing that they are well taken care of.

Monarchs has been created to support your loved one’s independence, and provide them with the 24/7 help they need to live a healthy, fulfilling life. Sign up today for a FREE Month at Monarchs.
