3 Things To Entice You Into Moving Into A Senior Apartment

When my youngest child moved out, I was left living in a large home by myself. Weekend visits from the grandchildren only filled the space part of the time. The home became more of a burden as each day passed. It was not until I was working with my real estate agent to sell my home and find a smaller home did I realize that there were so many others in the same position. I created this blog to help other empty nesters explore their options for downsizing and to provide guidance on finding a new home that fits in more with their lifestyle.

Are you getting older and considering letting go of the family home for something a little smaller and more convenient for you? Have you thought about moving into a senior living apartment? If you're on the fence and haven't been able to decide if a senior apartment is right for you, there are so many benefits that may help push you past your hesitations and into a new apartment. Here, you'll find a short list of benefits of living in a senior apartment now and several years from now.

No Maintenance

Think about how many hours you spend maintaining your home and property each week. Wouldn't that time be better spent doing something else? Many seniors decide that it's time to hang up the work gloves and let go of the many chores that come with owning a home and property. When you live in a senior apartment, the grass that needs cut, the repairs that need to be made, and the painting that needs to be done will all be taken care of for you.

Safety Features

Safety and security are always something to consider when you're thinking about moving. When you move into a senior apartment, you'll get the best of both – a more secure environment and the safety features that you'll continue to need as you grow older.

Safety features include:

  • Nonslip flooring in kitchens and bathrooms
  • Grab bars and walk-in showers
  • Limited or no stairs to contend with
  • Pull cords for medical emergencies
  • Wheelchair access

Although you may not physically need these features today, it's good to have them already in place so you won't have to worry about adding them as you get older and your body quits working the way that it does today.

Pets or No Pets

Whether you love pets or you don't, you'll be able to choose from senior communities that allow them and those that don't. So if you have a pet, no worries – you'll be able to find the right senior apartment for the two of you to grow old in. When pets are welcome, the community includes an area for walking and safe play, so you won't have to venture out to the dog park to give your buddy some exercise.

Take your time and look around at senior apartments near you. You may find the one that meets all of your needs today, as well as all of the needs that you'll have in the future.
