There comes a time when you are feeling prepared to move into a retired living community. It can be that your adult children and family members have moved away or your spouse has recently passed on. Regardless of the reason, there’s no right or wrong time to transition into a retired living community. However, as there are many retired living communities out there, it’s crucial to consider a few factors in order to distinguish between each community and find out which one best suits your interests, needs, and expectations. To help you make a better decision, here are some key considerations when selecting retired living communities.
What Are The On-Site Amenities And Services?
This is by far the most important factor to look into as amenities and services offered by a community are keys in enabling you to live a well-rounded and carefree lifestyle. For example, here at The Welstone At Mission Crossing, our wide range of amenities include a movie theater, spacious bar lounge with game tables, hair salon and barbershop, library, media center, and many more. All these amenities ensure that you do not have to leave the community to get some of your lifestyle needs fixed. On top of that, our services like an on-site medical team, and transportation, dining, and activities programs help you to live a lifestyle that’s also worry-free so that you can concentrate on what’s truly important, which is spending time with your friends and doing the things you love.
Is It Pet-Friendly?
If you own a pet, you want to make sure that the specific community you’re looking at allows pets into the community. Some retired living communities may have an unfriendly pet policy as they do not wish to disrupt the peace in the community and disturb other residents. However, at The Welstone At Mission Crossing, we understand that pets can play a vital role in one’s physical, mental, and emotional health. As such, we do allow pets into our independent living community, though we do advise that only pets which are well-trained and relatively quiet are brought with you. Before you officially move into our community, we will do a thorough check to ensure that your pets are permitted.
What Are The Fitness And Wellness Programs Available?
It should come as no surprise that no matter one’s age, leading an active lifestyle is the way to be healthy. In order to ensure that you can live out your retirement years with a myriad of options to get fit, we recommend checking out the fitness and wellness programs offered in the community. This is also to see if there’s a need to sign up for an off-site gym membership, which can be an additional expense and is rather troublesome. At The Welstone At Mission Crossing, you can head over to our modern FitCamp® fitness center, where you can fulfill your fitness needs with our state-of-the-art equipment. Here, you can also participate in a number of exercise classes that are conducted by our professional trainers. Other fitness and wellness programs offered include chair volleyball, a variety of exercise equipment circuits, and many more.
