While some seniors feel strongly about remaining in their homes after retirement, other seniors have discovered the many benefits of moving into an independent living community. MorningStar of Billings invites you to take a closer look at some of the advantages.
To start with, for many seniors the family home starts to feel pretty empty once the kids have moved out. In addition you are still stuck with all of the upkeep and maintenance of the home including snow removal, lawn care and the costs of repairs and replacement. Senior living on the other hand, means no more concerns about maintenance inside or out.
An independent living community also offers the security of predictable budgeting, which allows you to know just what your monthly expenses will be as most are included in your monthly fee. It also solves another problem many seniors face - loneliness. As we age, older adults can have difficulty getting out and about, and may be at risk for “losing their social ties and falling prey to the health problems that come with loneliness.” An independent living community offers the advantage of a private apartment and the chance to socialize whenever you choose with built-in companionship.
Independent living communities such as MorningStar of Billings additionally provide residents with activities and programming that ensure you are never bored. Whether you want to attend an exercise class, play cards or a board game, get a haircut, or catch a movie, independent living gives you the chance to do it all on-site.
Moreover it is typically less stressful for seniors to make the transition to independent living before they “need” to move into assisted living. Selling your home and moving can be stressful and it is much easier to do while you are still healthy.
