As seniors age, it becomes more likely for them to desire a move to a senior living community; however, to some, they fear that time coming. This can be because of a number of reasons, but more often than not, it’s because of their misconceptions about senior living.
“When some people think of senior living, the first thought that comes to mind is a need for care or support and a lack of freedom,” says Mary Ellen Thieroff, Marketing Director at Royal Oaks, an established Life Plan Community in Sun City, AZ. “While it’s true that many senior living communities do provide care and support, many times offering seniors peace of mind, they don’t take away the freedom that they enjoy. In fact, senior living communities often add to it.”
“We strive to ensure residents can enjoy the lifestyle they loved prior to moving to our community, all while enhancing it with a number of services and amenities, opportunities and engaging programming,” Mary Ellen states. “This often provides residents with more freedom, additional opportunities for socialization and more, making the transition to a senior living community one of the best things they’ve ever done.”
Why Would a Move Provide More Freedom?
To answer simply, a move takes a lot off your plate as you age and adds a lot more opportunity. Consider some of the following in-depth reasons why a move to senior living can provide the freedom and lifestyle you desire as you age.
You Don’t Need to Lift a Finger
When you own a home, you have to take care of the maintenance, housekeeping and yardwork. While there are a few people who do enjoy this, the bulk of them don’t and either put it off, spend their whole day trying to catch up or hire someone else to do it for them. At senior living communities, you don’t need to worry about any of this, as it’s all taken care of for you! Instead of dealing with those hassles, you could be enjoying an engaging lifestyle where you can enjoy your friends, take on a new hobby or do as you please!
Worrying About Care Will Be a Thing of the Past
At senior living communities, care is often included. This allows you the freedom to enjoy each day without worrying about any what-ifs or thinking about what will happen when a health issue arises. At senior living communities, they are ready for whatever may come – whenever!
Forget About Cooking Meals, Simply Enjoy Them
Senior living communities take away the need to make grocery lists, go grocery shopping, prepare food items, cook your own meals and clean it all up. They prepare both delicious and nutritious meals that not only meet your needs and tastes but enhance your health and create an engaging experience. Dine with your friends, chat over coffee and forget about the rest! Enjoy being free from the confines of your kitchen and enjoy the experience.
Enjoy Programming, Amenities and Engaging Lifelong Learning
Have you always wanted to take up a new hobby, explore a new exercise technique or even learn something brand new? What about expanding on hobbies you had previously or trying to play a new instrument? At senior living communities, you have the freedom and opportunity to enjoy whatever you please! Explore your artistic skills, get active, teach your own club – the choices are endless!
No matter what you choose to enjoy or pursue, freedom abounds at senior living communities such as Royal Oaks!
