3 Benefits of Choosing an Independent Senior Living Community
Your lifestyle and the habits you’ve formed directly impact on your overall health and wellness. For example, if you lead an active, fulfilling lifestyle, you will feel healthier. On the other hand, if you isolate yourself and do not participate in any physical activity, you may start to feel groggy, sluggish, or even depressed.
The good news is that independent senior living communities can help you create and lead your desired lifestyle. At Fiddler’s Green, we know just how impactful this community setting can be. This is why we are sharing three of the benefits of choosing independent senior living.
1. You Build a Circle of Friends & Neighbors
It is common to experience feelings of loneliness and isolation as we age, but these feelings can have a negative impact on our physical and mental wellness. Whether it is due to changes in mobility, a lack of reliable transportation, living far away from friends and family, or something else entirely, living in a private residence can limit our opportunities for socializing and connecting with others. Fortunately, an independent senior living community could be the solution!
The word community refers to more than just the building or physical structures. It’s about being a part of a neighborhood of individuals with similar life experiences. Whether it’s a card game or conversation over coffee, there are endless socialization, connection, and engagement opportunities right down the hall.
At Fiddler’s Green, we consider our residents part of our family. We care about one another and take the time to get to know each other. By doing so, we are able to offer activities and events that cater to our residents’ specific interests, further promoting connecting.
2. Maintenance-Free Living
When you own your home, the household chores, maintenance, and upkeep of the home all fall onto your plate. This means that you have to mow the lawn or shovel the driveway, repair the roof, or replace/fix appliances. A lot goes into keeping a house updated and in good shape, and all these tasks can cause unwanted and unnecessary worry and stress.
In an all-inclusive senior housing community like Fiddler’s Green, all home maintenance and upkeep tasks are handled for you. As a result, you no longer have to worry about replacing the next lightbulb that goes out or fixing the leaking sink, freeing up your time and allowing you to relax and enjoy a maintenance-free lifestyle.
3. More Cost-Effective than Owning a Home
Bills and other expenses can add up quickly when you live in a private residence. For example, you typically have to pay your utility, cable, internet, mortgage, and grocery bills separately (not even adding in the cost of entertainment like going to a movie or eating out at a restaurant). And utility bills such as electricity and water can fluctuate from month to month, and unexpected repairs or damages can pop up, making planning and sticking to a budget even more challenging.
However, in an all-inclusive independent senior living community, all of your bills are combined into one monthly rate. At Fiddler’s Green, this rate includes housing accommodations, meals, cable and internet, and more. The best part, though, is that your rate won’t fluctuate based on usage, meaning that if you used more water or electricity last month, your cost stays the same.
