And When Choosing a Senior Living Community, Be (at Least) a Little Demanding
We call it “shopping” for senior living intentionally, because quite often, just like with other, important purchases (houses, cars, appliances, etc.), there’s a lot to consider, including some inevitable pros and cons.
A house, for example, may have a fabulous kitchen, but lack the outdoor living space you want. And maybe to get the sunroof or other features you desire in a vehicle, you have to move up to a premium model and pay more. Either way, you’re compromising something to get something else.
You may run in to similar scenarios with senior living communities as well. Maybe a community has beautiful apartments, but an average dining experience. Another has great amenities, but care options that aren’t ideal for you or your loved one. And of course, one (or more) may “tick all the boxes,” but are simply too expensive.
Our advice? In your quest for a senior living solution, be demanding! If you want it all, then don’t settle for much less. Today more than ever, you don’t have to.
Apartment Homes & Common Areas
Fresh and stylish, and with an array of options, our apartment homes provide comfort, quality and flexibility, with available suites and one- and two-bedroom floor plans commonly offered in most communities.
Plus, we’re actively transforming common areas and creating inviting, new spaces to dine, socialize and enjoy life.
From convenient, all-day dining and transportation to first-class amenities like dedicated game and craft rooms, movie theaters, senior-specific fitness centers and professional beauty salons and spas, our communities feature everything you or your loved one needs to satisfy both mind and body. And that’s just what’s inside…
Step outside and you’ll often find sweeping nature views, covered and uncovered seating, outdoor recreation and maybe even a spectacular, resort-style pool area!
