Reasons to Consider Staying at a Senior Living Community This Winter

It’s warm, cozy, and comfortable.

Our senior living communities – located in Kearney, McCook, Seward, and Wayne – were designed with your comfort in mind. A variety of apartment layouts are available, and communal areas give everyone a chance to come together and enjoy each other’s company. By fostering warmth and joy, our communities will help you feel cozy and welcomed this winter.

It provides peace of mind.

Although snow certainly looks beautiful when it’s covering a field like a pristine blanket or resting on tree branches, it can also be dangerous. In fact, through snow, ice, and freezing temperatures, winter ushers in several safety concerns: slippery sidewalks, icy roads, storms that threaten electricity, and more. Staying in a senior living community will ensure your safety and give you and your family peace of mind this winter.

It eliminates the need for you to complete household chores.

Winter is a season filled with home maintenance. From salting the driveway to shoveling snow off the sidewalk, there are numerous things you need to do to keep your home safe and functioning properly this winter. Other items on your to-do list might include maintaining your fireplace, drying your floors when you track in snow, de-icing your car’s windshield, and running to the grocery store at a moment’s notice so that you’re prepared for a blizzard. Instead of spending so much time on chores and stressing yourself out, wouldn’t you rather enjoy the winter season? If you stay at Kinship Pointe this winter, you won’t have to worry about a thing. We’ll even take care of cleaning and laundry.

It offers delicious food.

Speaking of no chores, wouldn’t it be lovely if you didn’t have to go grocery shopping or prepare meals this winter? When you stay at a senior living community, you’ll enjoy delicious food in a restaurant-style environment. Imagine a snowy day in the middle of January. Instead of fussing around in your kitchen and lamenting that you can’t hop to the grocery store for ingredients, you can enjoy scrumptious meals with new friends.

It provides care if needed.

Health concerns can arise at a moment’s notice. What if you need medical care in the middle of a blizzard? Will you want to confront the chilly temperatures and hazardous roads on your own to reach your doctor? If you stay with us at Kinship Pointe, you’ll have access to medical care when you need it.

It ensures companionship.

Even if you adore winter, you can’t deny that it’s often a little lonely. People aren’t outside as often – instead, choosing to cozy up in their own homes. Staying at a senior living community this winter will help you bypass that feeling of isolation. You’ll meet new people, make new friends, and enjoy a wealth of fun activities and events.


Many people aren’t aware that senior living communities offer short-term stays, but these temporary visits are ideal for seniors looking for a little fun and companionship during a certain season of life. So if you’re dreading shoveling your sidewalk, preparing for blizzards, and sitting home alone this winter, please consider joining us at Kinship Pointe.
