The Benefits of Living in Independent Living Communities
For many people, deciding when to move into a retirement community can be an emotional decision. Some believe they need to wait until they experience a change in their overall health. However, when it comes to independent living communities, the decision is truly based on the lifestyle you want to live. Do you want privacy, but also crave an environment where it is easy to socialize with others? Are you ready to prioritize your hobbies and time with family and friends over home maintenance? If so, independent living may be a great option for you. Some of the key benefits of this type of lifestyle include:
1. No More Maintenance
Independent living communities are ideal for those who want to downsize and don’t want to be concerned with home maintenance.
Imagine a community of residents who live free from chores such as lawn mowing, house cleaning or daily cooking. An independent living community replaces home maintenance with arts and activity programs, exercise classes and learning opportunities.
As the name suggests, independent living communities allow people to live an active lifestyle while doing the things that make them happy. There are regularly scheduled group events and healthy restaurant-style cuisine prepared daily. Residents have the option to enjoy a meal in their own apartment or villa, dine in the community’s restaurant or bistro, or visit a local restaurant.
Typical Services Provided with Independent Living
- Dining in multiple venues
- Fun, life-enriching programming such as bridge classes, book clubs and fitness programs
- Team members dedicated to your safety and security
- Housekeeping and maintenance services
- Transportation for day trips, doctor’s appointments and shopping
2. Good Food That’s Good for You
If cooking for one or two persons is no longer fun, you don’t have to worry about this when you move to an independent living community. A professional chef and culinary team prepare healthy meals, balanced nutrition, and even ensure your favorite dishes are available. Your dietary restrictions can be met while still enjoying meals, helping you feel better while maintaining the best health possible.
3. All Inclusive Costs
In an independent senior living community, all your monthly costs can often be covered in one payment. That means no more worrying about numerous bills from utilities or insurance. That makes managing your money easier to do and helps to minimize the risk of forgetting payments.
When you add up all of the costs associated with daily life in your home, and compare those with the costs of living in a senior living community in Utah, you may find that independent living is quite affordable and even an ideal choice for those watching their budget.
4. Your Privacy Is Maintained
Maintaining your privacy and autonomy is a key element of the independent living lifestyle. You have the option to socialize with friends and participate in events and programs or stay and relax at home. Like meals, you can enjoy them in your home or with friends at the various restaurants in the community. It is that type of flexibility that may make you love independent living.
5. It’s Social at Its Best
Studies have shown that socializing is important for overall mental and emotional health. It works to keep your brain healthy, too. In an independent living community you have access to a variety of daily programming, to include cultural outings, fitness classes, book clubs, bridge games, shopping, and much more.
