Retirement Living and Making the Jump (during Covid-19)
You or a loved one may be getting to the age where you are considering Retirement Living. Congratulations! You have reached yet another beautiful landmark in your life which should be celebrated and enjoyed to the fullest. If you’re exploring your options for Retirement Living there are two questions you need to ask yourself.
1. Am I ready?
2. What do I want out of my retirement residence?
There are things to consider before making the leap, and during these uncertain Covid times, you likely have many questions about health, safety, and care. We are always here to answer them and be completely transparent about our facility, and what we can offer to make your retirement better than you could imagine.
Many residents choose to move into a retirement home because they want a sense of community and security. It can be lonely living on your own, and at times, even unsafe. There is structure in a retirement community which will help keep you or your loved one on track with meals, physical activity, social inclusion and taking your medication regularly.
The Benefits of a Retirement Home
A retirement home/independent retirement residence offers varying benefits that you would not have while living alone. Inclusion is a huge factor in the wellbeing and the overall mental heath of seniors. At a residence like ours, you would be socializing regularly, and have emotional and physical support, when needed, with our 24/7 Emergency Response and On-Site Physician. For an inclusive fee, many of your living and maintenance costs are covered, which makes it so easy to simply enjoy your well-earned retirement. You can use our Cost Comparison Sheet to help with your budgeting and see the value in living at our residence.
