When making the decision to move to an independent living community, you may have some doubts. Do you really want to leave the house your children grew up in and where you have made so many memories? However, for many seniors, the truth is that your children may not live nearby and that staying at home may result in an increasing social isolation. You may even have visited some independent living communities for seniors and realized that they have a lot to offer you.
One common misconception about independent living communities is that they are designed like nursing homes. That couldn’t be further from the truth. Nursing homes are catered towards seniors who need continuous care, whereas independent living communities are for fit and healthy seniors who do not need assistance with daily living.
These communities feature one- and two-bedroom apartments with floorplans that take all your needs into mind. On top of that, all the facilities you need are within convenient walking distance. Getting a haircut or buying groceries will just be a stone’s throw away.
Even if you are managing well by yourself at home, you may be on the path towards social isolation. Social isolation is an unhealthy mental state that has repercussions for seniors’ wellbeing in all aspects. In independent living communities, you have neighbors living within close proximity who are of the same age group. In addition to a packed activities calendar and amenities you can take full advantage of, you will never be short of socialization opportunities. In fact, you may find that you have to pencil in some time to yourself when you feel like it!
Living at home comes with a list of responsibilities such as housekeeping and maintenance. When you move to an independent living community, all these tasks are taken care of for you, freeing up time for you to focus on the things you love! You can join a club of your interest or rediscover a hobby you have left behind. You can even take classes and explore new hobbies and interests.
