Is Independent living right for me?

Making the move to senior living is a big decision, but for most of our residents, independent living is a great way to trade in chores and stress for a more relaxed and vibrant lifestyle. Everyone’s reasons for embracing independent living are different, but here are some of the most common:

  1. You’re ready to say goodbye to home maintenance and yard work.

    You're very proud of the beautiful home you’ve built over the years, but the maintenance and yard work are the last things you want to tackle at the end of a busy week. Wouldn’t it be nice to trade in the work and expense of a home for a beautiful residence that empowers you to do more of the things you love?

  2. You love the idea of socializing with interesting people.

    Who wouldn't love to have their best friend living next door? At an independent living community, you'll have plenty of opportunities to make new friends through planned activities, events, and excursions. It's called a "community" for a reason. Our residents welcome new members and help them feel part of the family.

  3. You want to participate in activities, without driving miles to do so.

    Living in a community gives you the chance to try all kinds of new activities. From art workshops and book clubs to fitness classes and game tournaments, you could have something exciting to do every day of the week. And the best part — You'll no longer have to hop in the car to participate in all these activities. They all happen steps away from your front door. 

  4. You could use some help with chores like housekeeping or laundry.

    Getting to and from appointments, cleaning the house and doing the laundry can take hours out of your day. When you move into an independent living community, someone else handles the household chores so you can spend more time doing the things you love. Many communities also provide scheduled transportation services so you can let someone do the driving if you want!
