How Winchester Gardens Welcomes “Solo Seniors”September 15, 2023
According to the latest Census data, approximately 16 million Americans aged 65 years or older lived alone in 2022. This number has drastically increased over the past few decades (which demographers attribute to the aging of the Baby Boomer generation) and will likely continue to grow. Whether due to changing trends in economic autonomy, cultural attitudes, or “gray divorce” (separating from a spouse over the age of 50), living the “solo senior” lifestyle is becoming quite the norm.
Living alone as an older adult does not automatically mean loneliness or social isolation. Many “solo seniors” maintain robust social networks and active lifestyles, enriching their sense of independence and happiness. Moving to Winchester Gardens can further support and strengthen these sentiments.
Financial stability for a secure future
Deciding to downsize and “age in place” at Winchester Gardens is an excellent way to plan for your retirement. Living expenses are constantly on the rise, but at our Springpoint Life Plan Community, you’ll have just one convenient and predictable monthly service fee. This fee covers everything from utilities and maintenance to amenities like dining, housekeeping, yardwork, social activities, fitness opportunities, and much more. With such simplified monthly costs, you can focus on more important things, like building friendships and making lifelong memories.
Springpoint also offers a money-back satisfaction guarantee. Our “Residents First Guarantee” ensures your entrance fee will be fully refunded if you decide to leave our community for any reason within 60 days of your move. Many new residents may even qualify for a tax deduction on their entrance fee and monthly services fees as prepaid medical expenses.
Grow your social network and amplify your wellness
Social interaction leads to an overall better quality of life. Building and maintaining relationships as you age provides a variety of health benefits – plus, it’s good for the heart and soul! We offer a wide variety of engaging activities, lively events, and fun outings at Winchester Gardens to ensure you stay connected to your peers.
Springpoint’s award-winning senior wellness program – LivWell – focuses on whole-person wellness surrounding an individual’s physical, intellectual, emotional, social, environmental, spiritual, and vocational needs. LivWell activities offer a unique experience that supports a high quality of life, personal choice, lifelong development, and an optimal sense of well-being. It’s also a great way to meet friends and neighbors!
Receive the right level of care when you need it
Today you may feel healthier and younger than ever, but growing older inevitably brings change to one’s health and lifestyle. No matter what type of care you may need in the future, as a resident of Winchester Gardens, you’ll have priority access to additional healthcare services (assisted living, skilled nursing, etc.). Your entrance fees assure access to the entire continuum of care offered at Springpoint.
Winchester Gardens supports the “solo senior” in their desire to seek a fulfilling life while maintaining their independence. All Springpoint Life Plan Communities offer several amenities and benefits that encourage active and engaging lifestyles. Please contact us to learn more.
