Recent data from the five-year Age Well Study shows that seniors benefit greatly from moving to and living in a Life Plan Community like The Estates at Carpenters.
Read on to learn what you need to know about the move to a senior living community, a safer and more social option than living alone. We’ll cover the lifestyle benefits offered by a community like The Estates at Carpenters and why you should move sooner rather than later.
Reduced Home and Maintenance Costs
Utilities, repairs, roof leaks, burst pipes … these issues (and costs) can quickly snowball. Older adults can find it a burden to maintain the family home, not to mention costly on a fixed income. In such cases, choosing a senior living community, where maintenance and repairs are handled by staff, may be a better option.
More Opportunities for Seniors To Socialize
You’ll be surrounded by many others of similar ages and interests when you live in an independent or assisted living community as opposed to staying at home alone. At The Estates at Carpenters, residents help choose how to fill up the activities calendar. Additional, more structured activities are planned for residents by their communities to foster new friendships and a sense of community among neighbors.
A Greater Variety of Physical Activities
For physical and mental health, residents can participate in a wide range of social and physical activities in senior living communities, including exercise classes, walking clubs, bike club, gardening and crafts. These activities stimulate not only the body, but also the mind, which results in a better quality of life.
Senior Living Communities Help Improve Mood
Isolation is a common risk as we age, which can lead to health problems. This includes feeling depressed, agitated, angry and unhappy. Community life is a natural antidote to loneliness. Socializing with other residents and engaging in fun and entertaining activities can also help them form genuine connections that add love and meaning to life.
