4 Signs It Might Be Time To Consider A Senior Living Community

Deciding whether or not to stay in your home or move to a senior living community is never an easy one. However, there are a few things to keep in mind when weighing the decision of what might be best for you in your later years.

You’re Worried About Your Safety At Home

One in four Americans over 65 experience a fall every year. For many seniors it can be stressful thinking about moving from your home, particularly if you live alone. As we get older, tasks that were once simple, like going up and down the stairs or scrubbing the bathroom floor, can become dangerous. Living in a community can provide a sense of security and comfort.

You’re Concerned About Home Maintenance

Between cleaning the house, repairs around the house and outdoor maintenance the upkeep of a home can be a full-time job. Besides, most older adults no longer need all the space that they once did. In addition, most retirees aren’t prepared for the financial burden of maintaining a home in their later years.

You’re Worried About Finances 

Committing to staying in your home sounds like a good idea, however what happens should you need assistance or home care? Home care can cost over $100,000 a year and modifications required for your home to provide a safe space for you to live can be expensive as well.

Moving to a senior living facility can help seniors consolidate and reduce costs as many of our facilities include meals, transportation, housekeeping, laundry and an array of social activities.

You’re Looking For A Social Life 

Staying in your home can be lonely, especially when living alone. Living alone can lead to moodiness, depression and even changes in weight and overall wellbeing. At a senior living facility, surrounded by other active seniors, you gain a sense of community. You’ll be surrounded by other like-minded retirees looking to socialize, engage, keep active and just enjoy their later years.
