I’m Still Healthy — Why Should I Move into Independent Living Now?

Senior Living | 09/8/21


Forget those old rest home notions of rocking chairs on the porch. The only thing rocking around today’s independent living communities are the active, vibrant seniors who made the best move of their lives.

Put another way, the best age to move into independent living is right now, when you’re at your healthy best! The list of lifestyle pluses is long, but here are 7 of the top reasons to leave behind the drudgery and responsibilities of owning a home and put yourself on a never-ending vacation-like life:

Resort-style amenities. No need to hop a plane to enjoy an array of leisure pursuits, park-like surroundings, spa and fitness services, and chef-prepared dining. In today’s independent living communities like Monroe Village, vacation-level amenities are all waiting for you right outside your apartment door.

No home maintenance. The monthly fee at the best independent living communities includes weekly maid service, home maintenance, and concierge-style assistance to make life a breeze.

Comfortably appointed apartments. Independent living communities like Monroe Village offer an array of great living options, including studios, and one- or two-bedroom apartments up to 1,425 square feet. Some communities even allow you to select kitchen and bathroom finishes, carpet and flooring options, and paint colors that best suit your taste.

Lock ’n’ leave convenience. Go where you want to go and when. Have a car or use the free shuttle. Take a vacation, visit the kids — or have the kids visit you. Today’s best independent living communities typically have rental units where families can stay for short visits.

Easy ways to stay active and social. Monroe Village offers a variety of activities you can enjoy right on the campus — from their Nordic Walking Club to the Socrates Café Philosophy Group, and yoga and tai chi classes. You can get involved in organized volunteering opportunities, sports tournaments, and treat yourself to massage therapy, all within one vibrant community.

Continuum of care if you need it. Maintaining optimum senior health and your independence is a key focus at independent living communities like Monroe Village. As a resident of a Life Plan Community, you’ll have access to a continuum of care with increased levels of attention if and when you need it.

“No surprises” living expenses. Those residents who choose Monroe Village’s Lifecare contract have the peace-of-mind of having a safeguard against unexpected healthcare costs. Lifecare is the most comprehensive plan option that we offer at our senior living community. It ensures your monthly payments stay the same should you ever need a higher level of care.
