The Benefits of Living in a Retirement Community

By sdugas - March 10th 2014.

When you choose to live in a retirement community, you’re choosing more than a place to live. You’re picking a place to call home. Not only will this decision effect where you eat and sleep, but it will also have an impact on your social circle, your recreational schedule and your quality of life.

At Sharon Village Care Homes, our retirement communities cater to the unique needs and interests of our maturing residents. From the neighbourhoods that they’re located in to the amenities that are offered onsite, Sharon Village retirement communities are focused on providing more than just affordable housing. They offer exceptional living arrangements. 

What are some of the benefits of living in a retirement community? Well, here are 10 unique advantages to consider:

1. Independence

Retiring doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice the things you love to do. In fact, as a member of a Sharon Village retirement community, we encourage you to expand your interests and engage in even more self-guided activities.

2. Safety

Safety comes in many different forms in a Sharon Village retirement community. This includes on-premise security, financial stability, and personal health. Our retirement communities are designed to ensure your well-being is cared for in all areas, providing you with a safe and happy place to spend your days.

3. Support

4. More Free Time

Isn’t it time you let someone else handle the heavy lifting? Leave maintenance tasks to the professionals. Your only job as a retirement community member is to spend your time doing whatever it is you feel like doing!

5. Forget About the Commute

Our Sharon Village retirement communities are locate within walking distance of dozens of useful amenities, including shops, restaurants, parks and commercial areas. Getting out and about is always easy, so you never have to worry about feelings of isolation or boredom.

6. Stay Active

Who says you have to slow down once you retire? Now’s the perfect time to pick up a new hobby or reintroduce yourself to a forgotten past time. From hiking and biking to craft groups and book clubs, keep your mind and your body active with help from the Sharon Village retirement community.

7. Less Stress

Sharon Village retirement communities are designed to provide you with a warm and welcoming place to call home. Safe and secure, our properties can eliminate the worries that come from living alone or having to maintain a household.

8. A Sense of Belonging

Psychological health is just as important as physical health, especially as we age. Retirement community residents quickly find themselves integrated into a loving family that’s focused on mutual acceptance and friendly encouragement. Through regularly socialization and interaction with other residents, we’re confident that you’ll quickly grow to feel right at home in your new surroundings.

9. Great Accommodations

Our retirement communities boast some of the best accessible housing on the market, providing elderly and aging residents with tons of room to grow and entertain. Beautifully designed and efficiently engineered, our retirement properties offer the perfect mix of personality and functionality.

10. Family-Focused

Our Sharon Village retirement communities know how important family is. That’s we encourage all of our residents to invite their family (young and old!) to visit as often as they like. This is your home, after all – feel free to open it to whomever you like!
