Most seniors say they want to age in place, remaining in their homes for as long as possible. For them, senior living is a backup plan for when their first choice falls through. Many seniors fear the nursing homes where they once visited parents and grandparents. The reality is that today’s senior communities offer luxury at its very finest. Senior living amenities make your life easier, and may even help you live longer and healthier. Today’s senior communities are so luxurious that you just can’t get many of their amenities at home.
Gourmet Dining All Day, Every Day
Even if you love to cook, preparing three squares a day can devolve into unbelievable tedium. Factor in regular grocery shopping and your hobby can feel like an endless chore. If you dislike cooking, you may be tempted to eat out or order prepared meals, but this can quickly eat into your budget. Exceptional dining is one of the best senior living amenities. Get gourmet meals in a beautiful dining room every day. If you have special nutritional needs, forget about bland foods that tempt you to eat less healthily. The Preserve can prepare flavorful, delicious meals that help keep you healthy.
A Flawless Home
No matter how much you love your house, home maintenance can be a beast. You’ll need to keep things clean, of course, but there are also more daunting undertakings, like saving up for emergency repairs. For seniors with physical limitations, a home can present a serious danger, especially if it has stairs or narrow walkways. You might need to shell out a significant chunk of change to modify your home. Why not save your money instead? At The Preserve, seniors enjoy well-designed, beautiful homes situated in stunning communities with gorgeous landscaping. You won’t have to worry about home maintenance anymore, and you can leave the housekeeping to us.
Many seniors find that senior living communities are actually more affordable than staying at home, too. To compare costs, try our cost calculator tool.
For some seniors, senior living communities raise the specter of lost independence. They worry about having less privacy, or being treated like children. The truth is that senior living can actually preserve your independence, and potentially even help you become more independent. You’ll no longer need to rely on children or other family members for help. You can outsource meals and housekeeping to us, and focus on the tasks you truly enjoy. With fewer obligations and help when you need it, you’re less likely to feel burned out and overwhelmed. You’re also less likely to fall or suffer another injury that compromises your independence.
Activities Where You Live
Forget about scouring community brochures and trying to recruit friends to go on outings. In senior living communities, the fun stuff happens where you live — often just a few steps from your home. Do yoga with a neighbor in the morning, then master a new skill with a special educational series. Celebrate special occasions and birthdays in style, and don’t forget to sign up for regular community field trips to local attractions. It’s all included in the price of your senior living community, which means you can sit back and enjoy the fun rather than transforming yourself into an event planner.
A Retirement That Lives up to Your Dreams
Fantasies of retirement are hard to realize. That’s doubly true if you’re on a fixed income, geographically isolated, or have physical limitations. Senior living amenities can transform your retirement into something approximating your dreams. You’ll no longer have to worry about preparing healthy, nourishing food or finding affordable entertainment options. Less worry means more time to pursue new skills, make new friends, and live life on your own terms.
