Want to Be Happier and Healthier? Consider a Life Care Community

We all want to be happier and healthier, especially as we age. The good news is that today’s senior living communities are specifically designed with the needs of seniors in mind, providing residents with the lifestyle they crave. Upscale amenities, social opportunities, events, and excursions are just a few key ways that these communities are serving the people who call them home.  

A Life Care community is a type of continuing care retirement community (CCRC), that is increasing in popularity because it prioritizes these aspects of living. Learn more about this specific type of senior living community and discover how joining a CCRC that offers lifecare can promote a happier, healthier life. 

Promoting Active and Engaged Lifestyles

Embracing the joys of living means taking on the responsibility of nurturing your physical, mental, and social well-being. Being part of a CCRC brings accessible services that simplify your journey and encourage a health-focused lifestyle, making it a breeze to achieve your goals with a supportive community by your side.

For example, many communities have on-site fitness centers with state-of-the-art equipment and instructors who can assist with your conditioning. These communities also offer an extensive selection of fitness classes that cater to different needs and levels, making it easy to customize your well-being journey.  

Along with physical fitness, if you are looking to enhance your mental and social health, senior communities offer a mindful lifestyle to improve your cognitive health.  

Close-knit friendships can exponentially improve your mental health. Community living makes it easier to meet and interact with new people at your comfort level, whether you’re outgoing or prefer limited interaction. Join a community event or a social club, mingle with fellow residents at happy hour, or strike up a conversation with the person sitting next to you in painting class. There are so many ways to connect with people at our community.

Access to Comprehensive Health Services

As a Life Care resident, you gain priority access to a full continuum of care at your community of choice at a predictable cost, depending on your contract type. This exclusive privilege ensures that the on-site healthcare services are ready to assist as your needs evolve. For instance, if you enter a Life Care community as an independent living resident, but then experience a sudden illness or injury, requiring assisted living services, you can smoothly transition to these services. The convenience of comprehensive on-site healthcare services is invaluable, simplifying your life and providing protection for your well-being.

Stress-Free, Maintenance-Free Living

With your retirement finances secured and your well-being customized through a wellness program, you can take advantage of a senior living community’s high-end services and amenities to help you embrace a stress-free lifestyle.  

Unlike living in a stand-alone house which comes with a myriad of responsibilities such as cleaning, cooking, and household maintenance, a CCRC takes care of all these tasks and more. Housekeeping services help keep your home clean and on-site restaurants serve delicious and nutritious meals prepared by award-winning chefs.

Because you don’t need to concern yourself with these daily tasks, this frees up your schedule to focus on more of what you want to do, whether that’s learning how to paint, attending an educational lecture, or dining with friends. At a senior living community, a multitude of avenues invite you to revel in an exuberant and carefree living experience. Diverse and delightful, these options ensure that your pursuit of enjoyment is as boundless as the lifestyle you embrace.
