The Benefits of Retirement Communities

March 24, 2015

LS_image_packingThe solitude and upkeep required to maintain a home is an overwhelming task to many seniors. Add in having to drive, and daily life becomes much more worrisome for seniors and their families. What if there were no responsibilities of a home? What would an average day consist of then?

Imagine living in a home that is less work and less worry. Imagine not having to mow the lawn, clean the house, do laundry, keep up property maintenance, maneuver stairs, or burden caregivers. There comes a time in life when a maintenance free private residence becomes appealing. Senior living communities offer seniors the freedom to focus on living life instead of tending to the needs of a house.

Imagine This Scenario

You look out the window at the landscaping crew trimming the shrubs. The sun pours in to brighten your apartment. You hear a knock on the door.  Your friend is ready to the start the day with a light swim in the pool.

After your swim, you head for breakfast. Two eggs over easy, a side of ham, toast, and steaming coffee. The maintenance man walks by to tell you the extra light you wanted installed is all set.

For a moment, you think you’re living in a dream. But this lifestyle is real. And affordable. In fact, it’s more affordable to live this maintenance-free lifestyle than staying in your own home! Home is where your heart is and that can go anywhere.

Senior living communities provide residents the opportunity to live life as they please. Plenty of privacy is available for those who enjoy a quite day, while opportunities for socialization are available for those who prefer a bit more excitement.

A Retirement Community Can Be More Affordable Than Renting or Staying Home

Many seniors and families are not aware of the benefits of retirement communities that offer living options far beyond an apartment. Who would believe that fine dining, a health club and pool, a social network of people of the same age, cultural and recreational programs, and chauffeur services would be cheaper than renting an apartment or staying in a home?

For a limited time, new residents can lock in a reduced monthly rate through December 2016. This special pricing offer allows seniors and their families to save money while enjoying all the added benefits our senior living community has to offer.

If you are at all curious to live an easy lifestyle where meals and healthcare are taken care of, you can be sociable with friends, and you can focus on living life instead of managing it, please come see us and experience our community for yourself.
