GOODLETTE ARMS apartments
Full Circle wants to help its residents achieve maximum mental and physical health and self-sufficiency. Full Circle’s flagship property, the Goodlette Arms Apartments, is an affordable housing community for senior citizens in Naples, Florida.
Full Circle is working with local providers to assist the residents of Goodlette Arms with the issues that can present the greatest challenges to seniors: mobility, physical health, and interaction.
Mobility: Goodlette Arms provides daily van trips to local malls, medical centers and other destinations. The van schedule is posted on a regular basis for the convenience of our residents.This is a free service provided to our residents at Goodlette Arms.
Physical Health: Goodlette Arms has contacted local providers to schedule regular visits from medical professionals, nutrition counselors and exercise therapists. For seniors, compromised mobility and health issues, if left unaddressed, can combine into a downward spiral that results in the resident’s being unable or unwilling to leave the apartment.
Interaction: More social interaction generally leads to less isolation and a better state of mind.When residents know and interact with each other, they form bonds that strengthen the life of the entire community.Residents also look in on their neighbors frequently to ensure that they’re able to get about and to function.
Full Circle aims to combine services to enhance mobility with the chance to receive medical attention and regular exercise, in a coordinated effort to help the residents maximize their health and their enjoyment of the property. Goodlette Arms will provide regular events that help get residents out of their apartments and into contact with their fellow residents.
