As you approach your golden years, you may already have looked into the living options available to you. For many seniors, an independent living community is something to consider later on in life. However, as the name implies, these communities are catered towards fit and healthy seniors who do not require assistance with daily living activities. Assisted living is the next step in the continuum of care, and moving to an independent living community does not mean giving up your freedom.
If you are wondering when to move into an independent living community, the answer is: the sooner the better. The best time for you will largely depend on your own individual needs and preferences. In this article, we share with you some great benefits of moving into an independent living community.
Benefit from Continuum of Care
It may be the case that you will require assisted living at some point in the future. If that is so, it is easy to transition to this new living arrangement from an independent living community. Depending on the facility you chose, you may even be able to stay exactly where you are, albeit with additional services available to you.
Enrich Your Life
Contrary to what many people may think, moving into an independent living community isn’t about stripping you of your freedom. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. While the services and amenities available do make life easier for you, that’s not the whole point. The point is to build an enriching life where you can do the things you love without worrying about housekeeping, maintenance, meal preparation, paying bills and more.
With a wide range of amenities and social activities, you will never have to worry about being idle or alone. With so many residents living in close proximity with you, you can expect to make friends quickly and easily, filling up your life with socialization opportunities.
Enjoy the Convenience
One problem many seniors face is the inconvenience of having to travel a long way to run errands, such as getting groceries or attending an appointment. When you move to an independent living community, you have all the amenities you need on your doorstep. Whether you require a haircut or need to get somewhere in town, everything can be arranged for you without the hassle of having to walk a long distance or drive yourself.
