Independent Living communities are an excellent option for those seniors looking to simplify life and live in one of San Diego's resort style communities.
It can be a hard truth to face, but home ownership cons may outweigh the benefits in our senior years. With children grown up and out of the house, there is little reason to keep a larger home. Empty nesters often find the maintenance and upkeep of home ownership to be untenable.
We believe that as seniors age, their stresses should gradually reduce. Plumbing issues, lawn maintenance, mail, security, property taxes, and the likes can be a thing of the past for seniors transitioning to Independent Living.
Independent Living communities offer a variety of living options from studios to larger two- bedroom apartments. Management and staff maintain oversight of the premises to ensure security and safety for those living in the community. This can be a major sense of relief for family members to know their loved ones are in a safe and secure location. Often times communities maintain 24-hour staffing and building security. This offers an added layer of comfort which homeowners living alone do not have.
While there are added measures of security for residents, their independence remains as sound as previously moving into the community. Many residents find their daily living to be almost exactly the same as living in a private home, apartment or suite, having the freedom to come and go as they desire.
It is important to note that Independent Living does not offer assistance with ADLs as found in Assisted Living and Memory Care
Independent Living is the best type of community for those active seniors looking for a comfortable lifestyle with an environment conducive for social interaction. Independent Living residents in San Diego often find their daily living comparable to that of a resort style. Delicious and nutritious meals are offered in the dining room while housekeeping tidies up resident apartments for their return to a clean and welcoming home.
During our current times, social connection and interaction has become somewhat of a luxury. We especially feel for our seniors living at home alone in isolation. Sharing laughs and meals with others is an uplifting experience that everyone should have in their lives. Independent Living communities often go above and beyond coordinating social events and outings for residents, providing an array of opportunities for social interaction throughout the week.
