Nearly every older adult asks themselves this question at some point: Is independent living right for me? One reason retirees decide to move into an independent living community is because it provides the comfort and engagement of an extended family. Here are a few other reasons why.
Home versus community
Older adults with active lifestyles will feel quite comfortable in an independent living community. Most likely, you will move into an apartment where the community staff takes care of household tasks, freeing you up to do the things you love. You’ll also enjoy accessing the community’s amenities and going to events like book clubs and ballroom dancing classes. Independent living provides all the comforts of home without any of the burdens of homeownership.
Dining, relaxing, connecting
“One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.” That’s a quote from Virginia Woolf, and she has a point: Food nourishes our minds as well as our bodies, and a quality independent living community prides itself on the range of its dining options and the caliber of its service.
Being able to access all-inclusive culinary experiences means that you get to know neighbors over chef-prepared meals in the dining rooms, or anywhere else in the community – whether it’s in a fitness room or crossing paths on the community grounds. Just steps outside your apartment doors, these amenities are designed to promote well-being and a sense of togetherness.
