Choosing an independent living community to move into is more important than you think. After all, it is going to be your home for the foreseeable future. To this end, you will want to make the best choice for you in terms of living arrangements, amenities, services and many more. In this article, we share with you some factors to consider when choosing an independent living community.
Location and Transportation
You may prefer to move into an independent living community close to your neighborhood, or maybe you wish to relocate to be nearer to family. You may even choose a location that can offer everything you want it to, such as natural beauty or a shopping district. Before making a decision, however, you will also want to consider whether you are keeping your car and if not, whether the community provides transportation to where you need to go.
At Discovery Village At Twin Creeks, we have regularly scheduled tours all residents can go on and if you need transportation to an appointment or reservation, simply let the concierge know a few days in advance and we will get you where you need to be.
Services and Amenities in the Independent Living Community
One big reason seniors are choosing to move into independent living communities is for the services and amenities provided. First and foremost, this can leave the burden of housekeeping duties and paying bills off your shoulders. Homeowners have a wide range of financial responsibilities that include taxes, insurance, utilities and much more. When you move into an independent living community, all you have to take care of is one payment.
On top of that, consider whether you want to cook your own meals or have them freshly prepared for you. Most seniors would like the luxury of preparing their own meals from time to time, but to have fresh food available at all other times. At an independent living community like Discovery Village At Twin Creeks, you can have the best of both worlds. Each of our apartments and cottages come with a fully furnished kitchen and stainless steel appliances for your convenience.
Engagement within the Independent Living Community
No doubt, one of the biggest aspects of community living is engagement with neighbors and staff members. Living in close proximity with so many others of your age group will make socializing easy, and caring team members can ensure your every need is taken care of. You will have no problem keeping social isolation at bay in an independent living community.
