As we age, most of us hope to live independently as long as possible. The last thing we want to do is to become a burden on our working or recently retired children who have responsibilities and lives of their own. While it was once the norm to move in with your adult children, today it no longer seems to be the preference for aging adults. Seniors are instead planning ahead for their future, choosing a retirement community so that their children do not have to make the choice for them. It really appears to be a “win-win” for everyone!
Living in a retirement community allows you many freedoms. There’s no need to rely on your family for daily needs, including transportation. Your social calendar will also remain your own and can be filled with activities and events to enjoy with new friends your own age who share your common interests. Delicious meal options and wonderful company to dine with is another plus. And of course, you still have the freedom to visit with your family and share in memorable times. This lifestyle truly gives you the best of both worlds. There is definitely something to be said about maintaining your privacy and having your own place to hang your hat!
If you have not looked in to a retirement community yet, it is never too early. Deciding on a community that is the best fit for your lifestyle is very important and visiting communities to experience it for yourself is key. Take the first step today and join us for the Independence Hill Open House Breakfast and Tour of Homes on January 26 beginning at 9:00 a.m. Come enjoy our wonderful breakfast buffet, tour a variety of homes, and experience our fun-filled lifestyle. While you are here, you can also learn about our other communities within the same campus that offer a resort-style neighborhood of homes for adults 55+ and our Assisted Living.
Planning ahead is always empowering and will allow you to choose your destiny. At Independence Hill Retirement Community, the Lifestyle Specialists have years of experience helping seniors find the best place to call “home!” We would love to help make your retirement decisions come true. To attend our Open House Breakfast and Tour of Homes, please RSVP by January 23 by calling 210-209-8956. Cheers to your Happy Retirement!
