Assisted living in Pompano Beach, Florida, is the perfect antidote to the boredom of living at home. The right community preserves your health and well-being with supportive care that never intrudes on your independence and activities that keep you excited to wake up each day. Assisted living is more than just a solution to changing needs. It’s a way to expand your horizons, make new friends, and even rein in an out-of-control budget. Here are five reasons assisted living in Pompano Beach, Florida, might be the ideal choice for you.

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:

The warm climate and endless opportunities for outdoor fun can improve your health by encouraging you to stay more active, reducing seasonal depression, and easing the pain of winter-related aching joints.

The Right Balance of Help and Privacy

Most adults say they want to age in place and remain at home. Many cite concerns about lost independence or feeling trapped in a place that doesn’t value their individuality 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 for you 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.

What’s more, you’ll also have a chance to show off your new home to your family. Welcome them to one of the community’s many fun events or treat them to a gourmet meal in the dining room. Visits transform from caregiving appointments to moments of pure relaxation when you transition to senior living.

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.

Affordability

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. There will no longer be unexpected expenses, such as a leaky roof, a broken pipe, or a problem with your electrical system. This gives you more control over your budget. And forget about expensive grocery bills. We do the cooking and meal prep for you.

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.

At Arbor, we take care of it all for you, so you can explore your passions fully and deeply. For more information, check out our free resource, “The Complete Guide to Assisted Living.”
