Independent Living for seniors offers the best life has to offer. Beautiful homes and apartments of different sizes to suit every need and budget, amenities to make living fun and luxurious, and activities to keep interest alive and people on the move. What seniors do not have to worry about in retirement communities is doing maintenance of any kind on the grounds, loud noises at all hours of the night, or kids running around being destructive to property. They have all the privacy they want and can still be around people when they prefer socialization and company.
Offering several living options is how some communities, like Orchard Crest Retirement Community, for example, make sure Independent Living remains affordable on a fixed budget. Single retires can choose from studio apartments, alcove apartments, and smaller one bedroom apartments, so they only pay for the amount of space they need. Couples have one and two bedroom options, along with cottage triplexes that have garages. All residents have the freedom to enjoy large common areas, an elegant dining room for when they prefer not to utilize their kitchens, and excellent amenities. Rent for apartments is on a month to month basis, so residents do not have to sign long-term contracts. Rent includes living space with top-of-the-line appliances, all utilities, weekly housekeeping, one meal per day, activities, and scheduled transportation.
Amenities vary from place to place, but standards usually include a beauty salon, a large living room with a big screen television, and a multipurpose room for activities, performances, presentations. Other amenities may include a swimming pool and spa, a fitness center, craft rooms, game rooms, computer access, and a library or reading room. Luxury amenities can be found at some communities, such as a country store for convenience, a movie theater for entertainment, private patios or balconies, a dance floor, walking paths, and large gardening spaces. Retirement should be fun and exciting and busy. After all, that is the time to enjoy life because pressures have lessened a bit. There is not job to rush off to, the kids are all raised, and residents finally have time to do all the things they wanted to do but couldn’t due to a hectic schedule.
