Assisted Living Compares to Life On A Cruise Ship
Some senior communities have been compared to cruise ships with elegant décor and all the amenities a senior needs within a comfortable walking distance. In fact, some seniors with well-planned retirement funds have taken the concept quite literally by cruising through their later years:
- Rosemarie Roberts, who lived for about 12 years on the Royal Viking Line of ships
- Bea Muller, who was a permanent resident of the Cunard’s Queen Elizabeth 2 until it retired in November 2008
- Lorraine Artz, who spends around 10 months a year aboard Princess Cruises’ Royal Princess liner
Some of these people may have read “Cruise Ship Care: A Proposed Alternative to Assisted Living Facilities” by physicians Lee A. Lindquist and Robert M. Golub in the 2004 Journal of American Geriatrics Society publication. Essentially, the doctors agreed that considering the limited options for seniors who have to pay for many common things like cooked meals, laundry, and cleaning services, traveling for extended periods is a suitable option.
Let your seniors enjoy their golden years as if they were living on a cruise ship! Not having to cook, clean, run errands, perform chores or be lonely. They will have all of this and more, including entertainment, great company and enough activities to keep them physically active and mentally stimulated.
