Adults Over The Age Of 65: Flu Season Is HereOctober 25, 2018
It can be easy to get lost in the idea that a senior living community is identical to a nursing home, so let’s dispel that rumor right now. Independent living communities are just that: they provide a luxurious environment with a slew of perks for you to enjoy at your own leisure — no limitations or restrictions. These communities simply make life easier so you can live the rest of it to the absolute fullest. If your kids are grown and gone (possibly even with kids of their own), you deserve a break. Here are three benefits that senior living communities offer their residents.
- No maintenance: You’ve done all the hard work of your life — raised kids, committed to a single job for several decades, and kept a happy home — so we believe that you shouldn’t have to take out the garbage anymore. In senior living communities, you won’t have to cook, clean, or do laundry; all of those boring, time-consuming tasks are handled for you.
- Only one monthly bill: No more juggling six different bills every month. From cable and Internet access to property taxes, you’ll find yourself considerably less stressed out about the due date. Additionally, almost everything you’ll need is located on-site and transportation services are provided should you want to explore around town — you won’t need to worry about paying for a vehicle.
- Easy to stay active: As the saying goes, “motion is lotion.” It can be very easy to slip in an inactive life as you age, sitting on the couch or staying inside all day, but you’ll find the ease of access to fun and exciting events (such as monthly communal dinners or special guest lectures and musical performances) encouraging to get up and move around. You might even make a few friends and start your own weekly routine!
It’s estimated that nine out of 10 people over the age of 65 want to stay at home for as long as possible; when they see what life can be like in an independent living community, we’re sure they’ll change their tune. Senior housing communities exist to contribute more freedom to your life: when you no longer have to worry about cooking or cleaning, you’ll be free to explore as much or as little as you’d like. No matter what you want to do, the choice is yours.
