When is it Time for Independent Living?

Senior woman happy about making the move to senior living.

When it comes to planning during your retirement years, there are plenty of options of where you can live. Jerry and Sheila Berkelhammer made the decision to move to a senior living community early in their retirement and choose Springpoint community Stonebridge at Montgomery. They shared, “We made our own decision about where we wanted to live. If you don’t, your children may do it for you, and you may not like the result.”

Springpoint senior living communities offer a plan for the future alongside a vibrant lifestyle. But you may be wondering — when is the right time to move? Here are a few reasons you may want to make the move to independent living sooner rather than later.

Signs Independent Living is Right for You

Your home is too big. Although your long-term home may be beautiful and exactly what you needed while growing your family, the home maintenance and yardwork may be the last thing you want to tackle during your retirement years. Maintenance-free living at senior living communities means that the housekeeping, outdoor maintenance and safety and security are taken care of for you.

You’re interested in socialization opportunities. An independent living community is full of wonderful opportunities to make new friends in a stimulating environment. Daily activities, shared community amenities and events and excursions offer moments for you to thrive. With multiple opportunities to be as social as you want, our services and amenities promote the benefits of a social senior lifestyle.

You like convenience. Independent living communities offer a unique mix of housing, hospitality and healthcare all in one convenient location. As a senior living resident at Springpoint, you maintain your own private apartment and continue to live independently. At the same time, you benefit from a range of services and amenities that make life easier, such as restaurant-style meals, concierge services and weekly housekeeping.

You’re planning for your future. One of the greatest benefits of a senior living community is the variety of levels of care offered on-site. Should your healthcare needs change in the future, you will have access to the care you need without any additional moves. Springpoint’s living options include independent living, assisted living, memory care, skilled nursing and rehabilitation.

You’re looking for more freedom. Choosing independent living means more time, more freedom and more opportunities. You get the best of both worlds: carefree, independent living where you can do whatever you want, whenever you want alongside the companionship of community life.
