Senior communities today offer a
wide array of services and amenities,
and many are stepping away from the institutional feel. Most seniors who have moved to a retirement community report they prefer life at their new home to life alone. Methodist Senior Services (MSS) specializes in making senior living easier and more affordable for Mississippi elders.
Comfort, convenience, and affordability make our communities appealing
options for retirees who want a friendly environment and an engaging lifestyle.
At MSS, it’s about living life to the fullest! Our team members are committed to our mission: to serve older adults in the spirit of Christian love.
While seniors often put off making the transition to a retirement community, the benefits gained by moving sooner can make a positive impact on one’s life. Here are a few reasons why community living is so attractive.
Maintenance Free Home-Space – Our retirement communities offer affordable, comfortable housing designed especially for seniors. Elders can live an active, engaged lifestyle knowing that help is near, if needed, and the worries of home ownership, such as maintenance, utilities, transportation, taxes, and security are all taken care of by the community.
Boredom Busters – Residents are seldom bored with community living. All kinds of entertainment and activities are offered, both on-site and out in the local community. Our communities have a full calendar with a variety of things to do so elders can choose what interests them most.
Staying Connected – Older adults who live alone often become isolated, which is unhealthy at any age. With us, make new friends, share meals, and enjoy special occasions with one another. We place special emphasis on social activities and community engagement, so elders stay connected to their peers and their
Healthy and Happy – At MSS, we
recognize that balanced nutrition is the key to healthy and happy
aging. Creative settings for dining entice residents to pick
the foods that will make
their meals enjoyable. Through exercise programs and health seminars, residents have opportunities for continued learning, spiritual edification and practicing injury prevention.
Together We Are Better – Often we don’t realize we need assistance until
we are faced with a medical crisis. The twelve retirement communities that
make up MSS are a part of one of the State’s largest networks of senior living and healthcare providers. Our campuses offer a wide array of housing and services including senior apartments, villas, and cottages, as well as assisted living, memory support, and skilled nursing care.
The MSS Communities are Certified Eden Alternative Communities which means elders are directly involved
in setting the rhythm of life on our campuses. Our elder-centered approach to care and housing permeates all we do. Call any one of our campuses or visit to learn about all we have to offer. We think you’ll see why we make retirement fun!
