“That’s not for me. It’s for old people.” That’s a common phrase people will say when contemplating a move to a senior living community. Let’s face it, deciding where you want to live in your senior years is a big decision, and you want to make the right choice at the right time. So, to help you mull it over, consider your responses to the following statements:
- You’re highly independent and thrive in a lively social scene.
- You enjoy a sense of freedom and value a “pick-up-and-go lifestyle.”
- You’re a planner and seek financial predictability. You like the idea of selling your home in a robust real estate market and preserving your estate for as long as possible.
- When it comes to healthcare, you think preventive versus reactive medical care and you like the concept of convenient, quality and accessible healthcare.
- You don’t want to wait until a health condition forces you to move again. You know last-minute decisions leave little time to vet your options.
- You don’t like the idea of your family worrying about you. You want to be the one calling the kids and sharing details about your visit to Paynes Prairie and hiking the La Chua Trail.
- You live in the present, but when you picture yourself five years from now, you wonder if your circle of friends will diminish, whether you’ll want the hassle of maintaining a home or how your neighborhood will change as people your age move out.
You plus us equals happiness
If you found yourself nodding yes to the above statements, then you’re probably ready to move to a senior living community. In fact, a recent study revealed that residents at active senior living communities tend to have greater emotional, social, physical, intellectual and vocational wellness than individuals and couples who choose to stay in their house.
From a quality of life perspective, The Village of Gainesville opens the door to reimagined independent living. With an approach to wellness and creative living, there’s always something happening at The Village of Gainesville.
