There comes a time in everyone’s life when the rigors and responsibilities of owning and maintaining a home become too great a burden to bear. When this happens, the examination of independent retirement living should be immediately considered.
Independent retirement living is a relatively new concept and a far superior alternative to assisted living if the intended resident has no severe or debilitating conditions which would negate living alone. Consider this: a place, much like a country club, where you can go for meals and dine with friends, swim in the club’s pool, or play cards in a game room. Do all this without leaving the confines of your club. This describes what independent retirement living is all about. It is like living aboard a cruise ship.
Those states with high concentrations of senior citizens, like Florida, Texas and California will be able to offer the widest choice of amenities available for future residents. Such amenities include: on site sports and gym facilities, recreational classes and education programs. The best of independent retirement living facilities have on-site staff which includes: beauty salon services, massage technicians, and nurses. Some offer custom concierge services to satisfy even the richest of the rich. But the single most important consideration is the quality of food offered in the dining facilities. Never is the phrase, “You get what you pay for.” more aptly used than when referencing independent retirement living facilities.
Many of these facilities offer laundry rooms, spare bedrooms, wood flooring, balconies, sun rooms, even garages, and while some of the less expensive dining facilities will remind you of cafeteria dining, the better independent retirement living facilities are in a league with the best restaurants at country clubs anywhere, and here no tipping is required.
