When Should I Make the Move to Senior Living?
Retirement is a time for you to use all your free time to explore your interests and do activities that appeal to you. When you live alone, it may be difficult to have the active social life you want.
Exploring your options in Independent Living could provide you with the community and support you need to make the most of your retirement. Now is the time to make the move to senior living to get all the benefits and access to services and amenities only available in these types of communities.
Senior Living Covers Home Maintenance
One of the best aspects of being in a senior living community is how the living options help you simplify your life. You no longer have to worry about maintaining the lawn or dealing with issues like fixing appliances. Your community takes care of repairs and covers lawn maintenance.
You also no longer have to worry about meal planning and cooking – you get access to delicious dining options at your senior living residence. Here at Freedom Village, our residents have four different dining venues to choose from.
With these time-consuming responsibilities out of the way, you have more time to take advantage of everything your community offers.
Independent Living Offers Socialization Opportunities
Staying active and social are paramount to an older adult’s quality of life. Communities offer a plethora of activities where you can fill your schedule with great ways to benefit your mind and body – and spend quality time with friends. Some of these activities include:
- Learning something new with a continued education course
- Joining any and all clubs that interest you
- Taking an exercise class
- Seeing a movie with friends
There are likely all kinds of special interest groups that get together for things like a book club, line dancing, or games like bridge or bingo. The best part about being in the community is that you can change up your schedule whenever you want.
Do you want to start trying your hand at painting in the art studio? Would you like to use some of your time to volunteer? Freedom Village offers those activities, ballroom dancing, daily movies, and more. These are all available to you in your active retirement community – and you decide when and what you want to do.
Trying something new or even being new to a community could make anyone a little bit anxious, but with all these opportunities to get involved, you’ll make friends with your neighbors in no time.
Make the Most of Your Community’s Location
You also get to enjoy the surrounding area of your community. Freedom Village is located in the beautiful city of Lake Forest, CA. Residents enjoy being close to a city that offers opportunities for shopping or planning a night out on the town. You would also be within driving distance of gorgeous parks or lakes, creating the perfect environment for an afternoon walk and picnic with friends.
You Gain Security and Peace of Mind
Retirement communities have several safety measures to ensure that residents and the grounds of the community are secure, including:
- 24-hour desk reception
- Security service and gated parking
- 24/7 nursing staff and emergency medical technicians
In addition to safety, you also have long-term peace of mind because of what the care community offers. You can access higher levels of care should your health needs change, so you know your future healthcare needs are covered.
