What is it I’m not ready for?
Often, people confuse moving to a retirement community with giving up all the things they hold dear. We think you may find today’s retirement communities to be far different than you might have imagined. They’re for people who want to maintain their independence, expand their horizons, and make their own decisions. So residents enjoy life more — not less.
How will I know when I’ll be ready?
Do you worry about home maintenance? Are you tired of shopping and preparing meals? Do you have health concerns? Are you troubled about personal safety and the security of your home? Would you like to explore new interests and meet new friends? If so, now is the time to experience the freedom a service-enriched retirement lifestyle can offer you.
Why should I consider a move if I’m still healthy?
Can you think of a better time to move? Most people need to make housing adjustments as they grow older, and our residents tell us they’re glad they decided to move while this important decision was still theirs to make. You’ve planned ahead your whole life, so don’t wait until a crisis forces you or your loved ones into a decision you haven’t prepared for.
Isn’t a retirement community for “old people?”
Throw away your misconceptions about retirement living. Senior living communities are service-enriched residential communities, not an institution or rest home! Enjoy the advantages of an independent lifestyle within a comfortable and burden-free environment. You’ll free yourself from the daily concerns of meal planning, home repairs, and maintenance, while filling your time with new friends and a variety of social, cultural and recreational opportunities.
