Discover the elegance that Independent Living can offer for a refined and sophisticated lifestyle

If you’re a new retiree or soon to be, you’ve likely been looking forward to spending the days with your grandchildren, traveling or creating your second act. You may also be ready to leave the stress of homeownership, including the endless maintenance, behind.

This is also the time when you might consider moving to a retirement or Independent Living community where you can enjoy the rewards of a well-lived life. Yet you may find yourself hesitating at the options available. You know you want a socially active and worry-free lifestyle but you don’t want to leave behind your beautiful home and your own sense of design.

If your search is just beginning, you may be surprised to discover that your next home can be just as elegant.

Today’s Independent Living

Not all communities are the same of course so take time to explore. You’ll want to find the one that will truly feel like home. Here is a list of some of the elements that you’ll be looking for:

1. Customized homes

You didn’t live in a cookie-cutter neighborhood before and you don’t want to now. Make sure the community offers choices of layout, size and customization options. Take note of the finishes and quality features and whether there is plenty of natural light. Close your eyes. Can you see yourself living there?

2. Beautiful common areas and public spaces

Any shared spaces should be just as beautiful and well-appointed as your home. These areas should be designed to function well but also to be appealing and attractive. Is the entry to the community inviting? Is there a warm and welcoming library, theater or other areas where you would enjoy spending time?

3. Professionally landscaped outdoor areas

What type of impression does the community present when you first arrive? Are the grounds well landscaped and maintained? Are there sidewalks, walkways and bike paths that you can enjoy while getting your exercise. Look for gathering places where you can spend time with friends or reading a good book.

4. First-class amenities and activities

The community should offer a variety and the type of amenities that ensure there will be something for everyone to enjoy. You’ll want to find a well-equipped gym and a swimming pool, preferably heated. And ask about their social calendar. There should be fun, educational and meaningful activities for you to choose from that also offer opportunities to meet other residents.

5. Pleasing dining options and delicious food

You’ll want choices. Look for a community that recognizes this and offers not only healthy selections but chef-prepared delicious ones as well. It’s also nice to have the options that suit your mood - whether it’s fine dining or a more casual café.

Experience an easier life at the right Independent Living community

Beyond the design and layout of your personal and shared spaces, as well as the amenities offered, your Independent Living community should also provide the programs and services that simplify your life.

Imagine what your new life will be like when you make the perfect community your new home:

  • Privacy and community when you want it
  • Maintenance-free living
  • Social programs that encourage meeting and making new friends
  • Physical activities that promote and inspire you to remain fit
  • Scheduled transportation if you no longer want to drive
  • Healthy and delicious dining options
  • 24/7 security features
