For many seniors, Pompano Beach, Florida, is the ideal retirement destination. It blends coastal views, year-round warmth, and a welcoming community with the convenience of suburban living. Perhaps that’s why seniors comprise about a quarter of the Pompano Beach population. If your needs are changing, you have a chronic illness, or you worry about the safety of continuing to live at home, assisted living in Pompano Beach offers the lush beauty of a beachy town in a setting where you can get the help you need. Here are five key perks of living in an assisted living community.
Life in the Perfect City for Retirement
If you’ve had enough of cold winters, you’re not alone. Many seniors head south for retirement. Pompano Beach boasts breezy coastal views and plenty of public beaches. But even if you’re not a beach bum, there’s still plenty to do here. Check out these exceptional attractions for year-round fun:
- Enjoy a live performance at Pompano Beach Amphitheater.
- Gamble at Isle Casino Racing.
- Take the grandkids for a train ride on the Tri-Rail.
- Learn about nature and interact with gorgeous butterflies at Butterfly World.
- Sit and watch the birds or go for a hike at Fern Forest Nature Center.
- Sample some local flavor and enjoy dozens of boutiques and discounters at Festival Marketplace.
The Right Balance of Help and Privacy
You’ve likely spent much of your life catering to others, whether it was as a parent raising young children, as an employee, or as both. Retirement offers a taste of freedom and independence. Don’t give that up just because you have some health issues. Assisted living helps you live more independently by offering you the assistance you need, when you need it. You’ll still be able to live in privacy and comfort. There’s no need to worry about getting help from loved ones. Instead, you’ll live life on your terms, and articulate for yourself exactly what level of help you need.
Better Relationships with Loved Ones
One of the challenges of aging at home is that you may need to rely on kids or grandkids to support you. This can inspire greater closeness, but it can also be a source of immense family conflict. Your loved ones may have different opinions than you do about what’s best for you. They might disagree about how best to support you, and they might fight over who does what when. Over time, those who offer the most help may become exhausted and burned out. This can undermine your relationship, making it difficult to feel like equals. Assisted living in Pompano Beach levels the playing field, so you can have mutually respectful, low-stress relationships with the people you love most.
The Retirement You Deserve
What does your dream retirement look like? And how does your current life compare? Many seniors find that retirement presents many frustrating realities, especially when they face health issues. If you no longer drive, finding things to do can be tough. If friends and family don't live nearby, you may feel isolated and lonely. Assisted living offers the perfect antidote. Seniors in Arbor communities enjoy live music, daily gourmet dining, unique classes, plenty of exercise opportunities, community field trips, and even volunteer opportunities. You deserve a retirement imbued with purpose, meaning, and adventure.
Many seniors learn about the benefits of assisted living, and conclude that they could never afford a luxury community. The truth is that moving to assisted living in Pompano Beach could actually save you money. You’ll no longer have to manage the financial realities of homeownership, and you won’t have to worry about paying an in-home caregiver. For seniors on a fixed income, the right community may present a budget-friendly option. To compare the costs of senior living and staying at home, check out our cost calculator.
