Retired life can be golden, especially in a residence that’s a perfect match for your lifestyle. When selecting a community it’s important to take many aspects into consideration. Choosing the right community can be difficult, and it starts with assessing personal needs. Here are four key components to help you choose a senior living community that fits your unique needs:
Like any other real estate search, location is of highest priority. If your current locale is ideal, an accessible community in the same neighborhood or city may be best. Consider relocation if it’s better to be close to loved ones who don’t already live nearby or if you prefer or would benefit from a different climate.
After finding the right spot on the map, focus on a building type and how it fits your needs for healthy living today and in the future. If you have a physical disability, consider choosing a community without stairs, or with accommodations that meet your needs. If you like to walk your dog or tend garden, a ground level apartment may be best. If you’re looking for a seasonal location or a home base between travels, a condominium-style retirement community may be a better choice, as it can be locked and left without worry about maintenance or security. Towne Club Windermere, a senior living community located in beautiful Cumming, Georgia, boasts a beautiful Magnolia Veranda outside the main dining room featuring sitting areas and overlooking private gardens.
Activities & Entertainment
Maybe you like to golf, swim, garden, read books or build birdhouses. Make sure your favorite activity is available on site or nearby. If entertaining is important to you, consider a space with large living and dining rooms or a community with a shared clubhouse. For example, Towne Club Windermere has a state-of-the-art media room for movie buffs, a beauty salon for residents with cosmetic hobbies and a fitness and wellness center for residents with a penchant for exercise. Additionally, residents can unwind and enjoy a drink at the full-service cocktail lounge!
Consider accessibility, from step-in showers with grab bars to lower-height kitchen appliances and counters. Mind the width of doorways, halls, and bathrooms, where it may be necessary to fit a wheelchair or walk with the help of a personal aide in the future. Think about regular maintenance and how you or members of the staff will handle laundry, cleaning and cooking.
