As seniors enter retirement age and begin looking at options to downsize or find the ideal living situation to last for years, it’s important to consider all the options available to you. So, what’s a Life Plan?
Imagine a community with homes designed especially for those in retirement with consideration for any adjustments necessary as life continues to develop. This community is designed to meet all of your needs from home size and design to health and fitness centers and all-inclusive restaurants within steps of your front door. Here are some highlights to consider when planning for your future home with a senior living Life Plan.
1. Security. A Life Plan community is designed to support all situations you might find yourself in throughout the years. From completely independent living to supportive care if necessary as the years go by, you won’t need to relocate or find yourself dependent on anyone. If you need short term nursing care, it will be available to you. Or if you need assisted living or memory care for conditions such as Alzheimer’s, these specialized services will be at your fingertips whenever needed.
2. Community. Senior communities are not just for those who need assisted living or nursing homes. It’s a place to experience a full life with other like-minded seniors who are in the same stage of life as you. Because you have shared interests, it’s easy to connect with your neighbors and build lifelong friendships. Life Plan communities are designed to promote these types of social connections. Daily activities are planned from coffee hours to game nights. And if you have a special interest, there is sure to be a group that will join you in your hobbies or interests.
Building social connections can help keep you motivated and give you great purpose in life. This enjoyment of life can translate to less stress, more inspiration and the desire to remain healthy. Life Communities are designed to help keep you healthy with lots of physical activities planned just for you. You’ll be able to join fitness classes or work out with your new friends. Health and wellness centers designed especially for senior communities may offer a full menu of fitness activities, pools and classes to spark everyone’s interest. And if you bring your furry companion along with you, there is sure to be a group of other pet parents who would love to join you for a walk or visit to the dog park!
4. On-Site Amenities. A Life Plan community is built to surround you with support – and luxury. Amenities can include much more than fitness centers and indoor pool and spa opportunities. You may have access to beauty or barber shops, meeting rooms, media centers and arts or crafts studios. The community on-site chapel may even offer you spiritual support. And if you love the outdoors, you may enjoy the community’s walking paths or gardens. In fact, there won’t be much you need outside of your community!
5. All-inclusive. Have you ever been to an all-inclusive resort? Food is prepared for you. And if you’re feeling like some fun, you just have to check the schedule of events coming up. Transportation isn’t an issue; it can be arranged for you. Only a Life Plan community is better – it’s like taking this vacation with all your friends! You won’t have to sit alone in that restaurant. All your neighbors are also your closest friends. When it comes to maintenance, you won’t have to worry about landscaping concerns or appliance failures. And if you’re into traveling, you can rest assured being away while knowing your home is safe and well maintained. With 24/7 security systems and staffing to keep your home and community safe and secure, you and your family will have peace of mind.
