How did you imagine you’d spend your retirement years without work dictating your schedule? Taking long weekend trips with friends? Enrolling in that art class at the local community college you’ve heard so many good things about? Volunteering at the library? Choosing to move into an independent senior living community provides a socially enriched, maintenance-free lifestyle, so you have the time to do all you imagined and more.
Independent Living is exactly like living at home but without the maintenance, making it the perfect way to downsize. What does “no maintenance” mean? It means you won’t have to mow your lawn or fix the bathroom faucet if it leaks, but other than that, your Independent Living apartment or cottage is yours. You can decorate it however you like, make your own meals, and invite friends over, just like you do right now.
If you decide to go on a trip out of town, that’s fine too. Independent Living is a great option for anyone who is still traveling during their retirement because they don’t have to worry about having someone watch the house, turn on the sprinkler or collect the mail. You can lock your apartment door, hop in the car, and know that when you come back, everything will be just as clean and tidy as you left it.
The social aspect of Independent Living is enhanced by all of the services that are right outside your door. Community living offers a variety of amenities, so you can fill your time with movie nights with friends, weekly happy hour in the bistro, getting your hair done in the salon, taking an exercise class, and more. It’s all here.
