Living alone gets harder as we age, but with the right community and advanced planning, aging in place can keep you happy, healthy and independent for a long time.
What is aging in place?
Simply put, it’s the ability to live your life free from the hassle and stress of moving into an advanced care facility following an unexpected situation.
How Can I Age In Place?
For older adults, staying in one place for the rest of their lives is the ideal solution, but achieving that goal can present some challenges. Aging in place is best done in a community that offers the support and amenities that prevent the burden of moving into a specialized community at some unforeseen time. To age in place properly, it’s important to start planning for your future as early as possible.
Our secure neighborhoods feature numerous common areas accessible by community provided transportation. Dining rooms, event spaces and work out facilities are some of the amenities residents can use anytime. Use our concierge service to arrange transportation, order work requests and make requests. Access to nursing, housekeeping service, Memory Care, Respite Care and Assisted Living are available depending on what your community offers.
