Conventional wisdom says you’re as young as you feel.
It’s no secret that seniors sometimes feel they are too young to join a senior living community. But the truth is, if you meet the minimum age requirement, which is often 62, you’re likely to love your new lifestyle. Senior living communities are seeing younger and younger residents moving in – and there’s a reason. Today’s communities, like Waterstone of Westchester, are places for older adults to thrive – with unmatched opportunities for expanded social life, lifelong learning, fitness programs, exposure to new interests and hobbies, and so much more.
Choosing an age to move often has more to do with what the community offers than your stage of life. Maybe you’re ready to be done with the hassle of home maintenance. Or it could be that living at home has left you seeking more social activity.
Whatever your reason, keep reading to learn about some of the top benefits of moving into independent living sooner rather than later.
Smoothing the Transition
When moving to a retirement community, the younger you are, the easier the process will be. As we age, the moving process can pose unforeseen challenges, both emotionally and physically. Moving when you are younger means you’ll likely have a stronger interest in building connections to your community – and finding new things to learn, explore and do every day. Moving to independent living also means being settled and feeling right at home if or when you do need some extra support.
Our retirement years mean new experiences as well as new acquaintances. In a tight-knit senior living community, new friendships are bound to blossom. Moving to independent living guarantees you’ll be around fun and interesting people that you can relate to – with so many activities to enjoy together.
Get a Wellness Boost
Senior living communities like Waterstone of Westchester have a strong emphasis on residents’ health and wellness. Wellness programs are a key benefit that you’ll enjoy to the fullest and will keep you feeling young! Choose from pampering yourself at the salon, getting a lesson from the personal trainer or swimming in the heated pool.
Amenities and Services
Moving in sooner might also help you to enjoy more fully the amenities and services each community has to offer.
