As seniors consider retirement living, a rapidly growing segment appreciates the FREEDOM of Independent Living. The quality of life comes from the simplicity of a community environment with independence and privacy. As one recent client stated “Richard and I can no longer provide all the maintenance this house requires and everything keeps going up”. The safety and security allows gracious living with one all-inclusive rent, so seniors can focus on enjoying life.
Imagine no more property tax bills, no homeowner insurance bills, no utilities to pay, or lawn care work or payments. All meals are prepared by trained chefs; housekeeping is included in the rent, and usually transportation is provided to places you want to go locally. The security of knowing a management person is available 24/7 provides peace of mind to seniors and their families. Independent living is far more than senior housing, it includes social as well as the health and fitness activities seniors need.
The spacious apartments typical of independent living often includes kitchenettes for those times one wants to cook and can be decorated to the style that makes it feel like home. The shared areas are full of amenities that promote wellness, group activities, shared spiritual experiences, and continuing education. Usually an in-house third party home health company is available as needed, and many health care professionals make regular visits to the community. Most are pet friendly and equipped.
Most retirees are retiring from work and engaging in more recreational, leisure, or volunteer activities. That makes the freedom of independent living appealing, as so many parts of daily maintenance are covered by the all-inclusive rent, giving more time for what the senior retired to do in the first place. Assisted Transition has visited all the independent living communities in the area and noted the specialties that each offers. At no cost to you, a Certified Senior Advisor will narrow down your search and introduce you to your new home. Call our local Leesburg office at 352-356-8127.
