Maybe you’ve just retired. Maybe you’ve been retired for a while. Whatever the case, you’re not dreading the years ahead – in fact, you’re looking forward to them in a huge way. That’s because you’ve made the choice to move to an independent living community to have a rich, fulfilling and exciting seniorhood.
“One of the big ways that a senior living community provides an enriching, active lifestyle for older adults is through amenities and services,” explains Jeanie Tini, Director of Marketing and Sales at The Estates at Carpenters, a Life Plan Community in Lakeland, FL, that offers Lifecare. “These amenities don’t just make life more enjoyable; they make life easier and provide opportunities for residents to age well and stay healthy for years to come.”
Jeanie says that life at The Estates is filled with a variety of amenities that have been designed to enrich the lives of residents, making their retirement easy and carefree. “Ultimately, our community is designed to allow active older adults to focus on the activities they love, whether that’s restarting a favorite hobby, traveling across the country, volunteering or continuing their education. That is, after all, what life is all about.”
Life-Enriching Amenities To Look For
If you’re currently considering your living options (or even if you’re not), here are some life-enriching amenities you should be looking for in order to make your retirement and your golden years as enjoyable and fulfilling as possible.
An all-inclusive, maintenance-free lifestyle.
Does never having to make repairs, do yardwork or clean your home sound like heaven? In that case, you will love independent living. Your monthly fee provides you with an all-inclusive, maintenance-free lifestyle so that your time is yours to do with as you wish. You don’t even have to cook again if you don’t want to. While some extra amenities and services may be additional costs, many aren’t – which can simplify your life and ease your future financial planning.
Delicious, nutritious and flexible dining.
What’s better than enjoying delicious meals with friends and family? Enjoying meals that have been prepared for you without you having to lift a finger. Most, if not all, senior living options offer a variety of dining rooms overseen by professional chefs and their exceptional staff members. You’ll be treated to the latest culinary trends and cooking techniques while also receiving the nutrition and adaptations that will please your palate.
A plethora of events and activities.
With all the chores and tasks taken care of for you, it’s time to do the things you want to do instead of the things you have to do. In independent living communities, every single day is filled with a variety of options. From wellness classes to book clubs to lifelong learning opportunities to off-site excursions, hobbies and crafts, and so much more – the difficulty will be in deciding how much you can pack into a day.
Additional care as necessary.
Even if you’re active and independent now, it’s possible you will slow down or need additional assistance in the future. A Life Plan Community like The Estates provides the lifestyle you want now with peace of mind for the future, thanks to additional care services available on site. For residents who may need additional help with the activities of daily life, assisted living can be a graceful solution. If you need to recover following an accident, illness or surgery, on-site skilled nursing care and rehabilitation services help you get back on your feet without having to move to a different facility or location.
“A fulfilling lifestyle means different things to different individuals,” says Jeanie. “It all depends on what you’re looking for. At The Estates, we are pleased to offer the finest quality amenities, services, lifestyle and options for our residents. We also provide peace of mind with additional care services so that our residents will always have a home with us. For those who choose to call The Estates home, we’re here to make life as enjoyable as possible, now and in the future.”
