Sunday Scaries Hitting Hard?

Posted by Allyson Edwards on Oct 9, 2019 11:09:35 AM

The football games are nearing the two-minute warning and the familiar ticking noise from 60 Minutes plays in unison with your racing heartbeat. You find yourself having to say goodbye to yet another weekend and hello to a bad case of the Sunday Scaries- but don’t worry, you’re not alone.

Assisted living communities are a great option for those who wish to remain independent, but still need some assistance with daily activities. Each assisted living community is unique and offers different levels of assistance and services.
