Madbury NH, July 7, 2015 — Choosing an assisted living facility for yourself or for a loved one can seem like a daunting task, but it doesn’t have to be! Most facilities possess fully trained, experienced staff, and meet all the safety and health requirements to be considered an adequate assisted living home, but that simply isn’t enough. In order to choose senior housing in New Hampshire that goes above and beyond, you’ll need to ask some of the more obscure questions.

Is there room to breathe?
Access to clean green space can do wonders for mental health as well as physical health. At Carriage Hill, we have a terrace as well as other outdoor open spaces designated for resident use for walking, gardening, and relaxing. Exposure to nature can increase confidence and social skills, improve sleep patterns, decrease depression and have serious positive effects on dementia and stroke patients specifically. It is important for a senior housing facility to offer autonomous outdoor opportunities as well as guided activities that connect you to gentle nature.

Are their hearts really in it?
The most crucial aspect of any senior housing facility is the quality and genuineness of the staff. Is assisted living something the staff is truly passionate about? Will they take the time to create relationships with residents? President and administrator of Carriage Hill, Sarah Nadeau explains “we knew that, by keeping it small and personal, we had a real chance to help people make new friends and live full and complete lives while also getting the help and care they needed.” Carriage Hill is family owned and operated, which is why our philosophy is to take care of you (or your family member) as part of our family. We are passionate about caring for others and building friendships!

Will I have fun here?
Having basic needs taken care of simply isn’t enough. At Carriage Hill Assisted Living in NH, we want you to consider our facility your home, and what is home without some fun? On site activities as well as some opportunities for travel can make all the difference. Our proximity to the University of New Hampshire, in particular, provides numerous opportunities for speakers and demonstrators to guest lecture. Trips to their art, music, and sporting facilities are also possible. We offer opportunities for community participation and services designed to meet your physical, social and spiritual needs both on and off site.
