What are the Advantages of Living in a Senior Living Community?

Senior couples enjoying the benefits of senior living.

Did you know you can increase your happiness simply by living in a senior living community? It’s true! A recent study from ProMatura found that senior living residents are likely to enjoy life, feel less lonely and be more active compared to people who have not yet moved to retirement communities.

But why is that? What is it about senior living communities that improves resident quality of life? Keep reading to explore just a few of the numerous benefits of senior living.

5 Benefits of Senior Living

  1. Increased socialization opportunities. Community connection is vitally important for every person’s health. Socialization offers an opportunity to increase both your mental and physical health – and there’s no shortage of things to do when moving to a senior living community. Heritage’s person-centered life enrichment calendar provides an all-encompassing schedule of activities for residents, from daily activities like card games, baking, exercise classes and more. Even in a time where social distancing is the norm, we ensure residents are able to still connect with neighbors and loved ones. Within the community, one-on-one and small groups activities are encouraged. Conversations walls that we place outdoors and dedicated indoor visitation sace allow face-to-face visits with loved ones, and live video calls, window visits and even sending pictures and videos via email have become part of our regular routine.
  2. Access to quality healthcare. Should a healthcare concern arise or overall wellness needs change, you want to live in a community that is equipped to handle it. It’s common for seniors to choose communities that offer a range of services, so that needs will be taken care of in a place that they call home. Heritage Senior Living offers a full continuum of care, including independent living, assisted living, enhanced assisted living and memory care. Thanks to this full range of services, we can offer the right amount of care for each individual’s needs. Residents are able to comfortably age in place, as many of our communities offer several or all of these care levels.
  3. Exceptional amenities. Not only will you experience a beautiful, comfortable and personalized living space, but moving to a senior living community also means the ability to experience numerous on-site amenities. Think of it as an extension of your residence – you’ll have access to delicious chef-prepared dining, a fitness center, beauty salons, movie theaters, convenience stores, outdoor spaces and so much more. And all of this is included in your monthly fee!
  4. Financial comfort. Although your beautiful house may have been practical while you were raising a family, you may not need as much space in your retirement years. Housework and home maintenance come with a price and, with a smaller living area, you’re able to stretch your dollars even further. By moving to a more manageable living space, such as a senior living community, your retirement savings will go even further.
  5. Peace of mind. At a senior living community, you can rest easy knowing that your needs are taken care of now and in the future. Now, you can enjoy maintenance-free living in a stunning apartment surrounded by the services and amenities you need to live your life to the fullest. In the future, any needs that may arise will be met with exceptional care in a comfortable home.
