As you age, it often becomes increasingly difficult to maintain the same lifestyle you've grown accustomed to in the past. You may need help managing household chores, finances, activities and lifestyle choices. A senior living community offers many advantages that can make your lifestyle easier and more comfortable. What is your Sarasota retirement plan?
1. A Maintenance-Free Lifestyle
If you own a home, regular maintenance and upkeep is essential. Mowing the lawn, household repairs, cleaning, cooking and laundry are all part of everyday life. By moving to a retirement community, you won't have to worry about maintenance or repairs, as these are usually figured into monthly rent or maintenance fees. Many communities also offer help with cleaning, cooking and shopping, so you can spend your time on things you enjoy.
2. Socialization and Companionship
Retirement communities typically have age restrictions of 55 and over, so they're full of people who share similar interests and life experiences. Living around your peers provides wonderful opportunities for socialization and new friendships. Whether you want to share a cup of coffee, an elegant dinner, a game of cards, or an exotic vacation, it's easy to find companionship and life-long friends in a senior living community.
3. Entertainment and Activities
When you reach retirement age, it's time to do things you enjoy. Retirement communities recognize this and put a lot of emphasis on planned entertainment and activities for residents. Whether it’s a local shopping trip into town, a game of golf, a night of bowling, a bingo game, a cocktail party in the dining room, or movies in the theatre, the activities staff will make sure that there's always plenty of fun-filled things to do.
4. Great Amenities
Life in a senior living community often feels like you're living in a resort. On-site amenities may include state-of-the art fitness centers; Olympic size swimming pools; hot tubs and spas; tennis courts; shuffleboard courts; bowling alleys; movie theatres; elegant dining rooms; cafes and coffee shops; hair salons; and private meeting rooms. In addition, most retirement communities provide a variety of on-site wellness, exercise, and arts and crafts programs for residents.
5. All-Inclusive Rents or Homeowner's Fees
To make life simple for residents, many retirement communities include utility charges for heat, electric, water, phone, internet, and cable television, as well as maintenance costs in your monthly rent or homeowner's fee. You don't have to worry about keeping up with these household expenses each month.
