When is it Time for Independent Living?October 23, 2020
What are you looking for during your retirement years? For Ted Bryant, he was searching for contentment, which he found in Springpoint senior living community Winchester Gardens. He shared, “While living in an ambience of old-world charm and modern amenities, there’s lots of interaction with friendly community members and always something new to do.” Now, he has the opportunity to spend his days filled with his favorite things and wake up every day worry-free.
A senior living lifestyle offers all the amenities and services you need now to live a vibrant lifestyle alongside comfort in knowing there is a plan in place for your future. But you may be wondering – when is the right time to move? Here are a few reasons you may want to make the move to independent living sooner rather than later.
Signs Independent Living is Right for You
Your home is too big. Although your long-term home may be beautiful and exactly what you needed while growing your family, the home maintenance and yardwork may be the last thing you want to tackle during your retirement years. Maintenance-free living at senior living communities means that the housekeeping, outdoor maintenance and safety and security are taken care of for you.
You’re interested in socialization opportunities. Humans are hard-wired to crave human connections, and a community lifestyle offers multiple opportunities to be as social as you want. Services and amenities such as daily activities, amenities, events, excursions and more help to promote the benefits of a social senior lifestyle.
You like convenience. Independent living communities offer a unique mix of housing, hospitality and healthcare all in one convenient location. As a senior living resident at Winchester Gardens, you maintain your own private apartment and continue to live independently. At the same time, you benefit from a range of services and amenities that make life easier, such as restaurant-style meals, concierge services and weekly housekeeping.
You’re planning for your future. While you may not have many healthcare needs at the moment, you could come across higher needs in the future. Many senior living communities offer a variety of levels of care all located on the same campus, which means you can get the care you need in the place you’ve come to know as your home. The senior living options at Winchester Gardens includes independent living, assisted living, memory care, respite care and long-term care.
You’re looking for more freedom. Choosing independent living means more time, more freedom and more opportunities. You get the best of both worlds: carefree, independent living where you can do whatever you want, whenever you want alongside the companionship of community life.
