Things are not always what they seem.

Every 55+ senior should visit a senior living community, not with the intent to cross it off the list as a possible living solution but to consider it as a viable choice for your retirement. The choices in senior living are many and varied and a surprising discovery for most is that they are not the “nursing homes” of yesteryear.   Not only do senior communities offer a wide range of services and comfort level but they are a hub a social activity.

As Seniors Living Smarter Services visits with seniors who are thinking about selling their house after many years of home ownership we discuss their wants and needs, one of the things that seems to be common is the isolation that many seniors feel when they are living in a single family residence and have limited capability to get out of the house.  Many seniors have become accustomed to to not seeing or speaking with another individual for several days, all too often we talk with seniors who have experienced this situation themselves.  Imagine the reverse side of that situation… you live in a senior living community where you are surrounded by friends and caring staff everyday. What a difference!

Wait a minute, you might be thinking…”I enjoy my solitude and I’m not really into visiting with people everyday”.  Remember, you are in charge of your daily activities at a senior living community.  You choose when you want to venture out of your apartment, you choose when you want to go have dinner in the main dining room and you choose your daily activities. You are in charge of your life, you have all of the amenities of the community at the your fingertips without the stress of home ownership!

Choices in senior living have never been better, from 55+ Apartments to Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRC) you have potential to set up the next half of your life as the best half.
