Are you wondering if an independent living community is the best option for your retirement lifestyle? Does aging at home bring more harm than good? There are several factors you’d need to consider before deciding if independent living makes for a great lifestyle option for you. To help you make the right decision, consider these benefits of independent living:
Independeent living means not having to work on home maintenance. An independent community maintains both the interior and exterior of your home, unlike a condominium where you would have to directly manage interior repairs.
You can bid farewell to household bills when you move to an independent living community. Utilities, taxes, and even cable are included in your monthly fee, in addition to dinner, weekly housekeeping, and all amenities and campus events. All you’d have to pay is your phone and electricity.
Yes, exercise is the key to a healthy lifestyle. You’ll find a plethora of physical fitness regimes in an independent living community! Yoga, Tai Chi, walking clubs, and exercise classes are just a few of the ways you can continue to stay fit and active.
Choose from a wide spectrum of freshly prepared healthy foods for your meals. Any special dietary needs will also be taken care of. All foods are prepared with minimum salt, and there are sugar-free desserts for you to cleanse your palette!
Although you’ll be living independently, you’ll still enjoy all the safety features the community has to offer. An emergency call, handrails in the bath, and a sprinkler system in your apartment, along with daily wellness checks, are just some of the ways a community looks out for its residents.
From housekeeping to the dining rooms and everywhere in between, you’ll find help whenever you need it. Team members are always available to offer a helping hand!
Independent living lets you have all the privacy you want. Nurses would only lend a hand in certain daily tasks that you need assistance in – this ensures every resident is trained to be independent in the long run.
There is a variety of activities to choose from if you’re looking for a new hobby. From crafts to various classes to cultural and entertainment programs, expect to be occupied almost every day of the week. Occasionally, you’ll get to make trips to local attractions every month, with transport included!
Having a social life is important too, although you’ve decided to move to independent living. Game sessions and interest groups are aplenty. There are also several recreation rooms and communal spaces so your friends can visit whenever you wish. Then, tuck into delicious meals in one of the five intimate dining rooms available.
