Most people do not look forward to getting older. After all, there is the misconception that growing old means having to slow down and abstain from activities that you used to love.
However, that is not the case in the modern world. In fact, many refer to retirement as their golden years. If you or your loved one is currently over the age of 65, you might be reflecting on how you want to spend the rest of your life. For many people this means making the decision to transition over to independent living communities.
Here at Veranda Club, we understand that this can be a very big decision, and even destabilizing for some individuals. This is why we have compiled a series of considerations for you to think through your decision to seek out independent living.
Opportunities for Social Engagement
For many people, living at home can become lonely especially when your children have grown up or your spouse has passed. While it is normal to be alone from time to time, prolonged loneliness due to social isolation can take a toil on both your physical and emotional wellbeing. It is then important that this situation will not be repeated when you enter your independent living community and that opportunities for social engagement with residents are frequent and accessible.
Tired of the Responsibilities That Come with Homeownership
There are many labor and financial costs to owning a home – whether it is having to keep up with maintenance, household chores, or even paying for utilities. At some point, it can be tiring to have to constantly deal with these matters. This is something that a placement in an independent living community can help with through housekeeping and concierge services.
At a certain age, it can be worrying to continue to live alone. Whether it is because of memory issues, problems with mobility, or existing health issues, living in a community will allow you or your loved one to have more support and accessible help when needed.
