Need a Little Help? You’re Not Alone.
In 2016, 83.4 percent of senior households were living without any people under 65 years in the United States, according to information gathered by Statista. It also reports that, as of 2017, about 16 percent of the American population was 65 years old or over. By 2050, this number will likely reach 22 percent because the average birth rate has fallen and future generations are expected to live longer. This means that more seniors throughout the country may lack the care and assistance they need, which is why many of them are considering senior living services. Aging.com states that most seniors who research the topic increasingly choose Independent Living communities like Meadow Lake.
Independent Living residents may need help with some household tasks, but still have the autonomy they need to continue succeeding in their jobs. “By 2028, nearly one in three people between the ages of 65 and 74 are expected to remain in the labor force, and more than 12 percent of people 75 and older will still be working, roughly tripling the rate at which the oldest Americans were working two decades ago,” SeniorLiving Research reports. Meadow Lake provides an optimal place to rest and receive support for those who have responsibilities outside of the community.
For retirees, Texas is the fourth most popular destination; nearly ten thousand seniors over 60 who have finished working call it their new home each year. Most retirees are happy, depending on their health, how they spend their time, and how they define their sense of purpose.
Living residents of Meadow Lake receive daily medication management and monitoring of medical needs, allowing them to remain in great health. Its wellness center, fitness equipment, and exercise classes are just a few ways residents stay active at the thriving community.
“Passive activities like watching television and staying at home were found to generate the lowest amount of happiness in a retirement study, while more active endeavors, like socializing, volunteering, walking, or exercising, were associated with the highest level of happiness,” says SeniorLivingResearch. Meadow Lake offers numerous engaging events for all residents. These feature community guest speakers and educational instructors in addition to a Farmer’s Market, Greenhouse Garden Shop, Celebrity Chef Dinner, and Happy Hour. Residents are also encouraged to pursue their hobbies through art; they may also golf, play baseball, and fish. Those looking for fun things to do will always be busy with activities that offer a sense of purpose by helping them connect with others and pursue what is meaningful to them.
Whether or not they are working, many people think they cannot afford senior living. Despite the large number of seniors not receiving professional assistance, if money were not an issue, about four-fifths of respondents to a Statista survey said they would pursue senior living as they become elderly. Meadow Lake offers a solution with its 90% refundable entrance fee plan for independent living homes and apartments, which results in lower monthly fees than rentals. Utilities including extended cable and phone service are included, and we offer insurance on the structure of all residences.
