Why Retirement Living Is A Great Choice Right Now

By Blog

Are you considering retirement living? Maybe you see it as something in your future but not now. In 2024, we will be witnessing a projected record-breaking year for retirement, so it is wise to have a plan. Allow us to show you why now is the time to start enjoying retirement living at Westminster Village. A Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC), Westminster Village provides accommodations for independent living, assisted living, and skilled nursing. With our CCRC, you can have a plan for the future and the opportunity to be part of a community with a wealth of amenities and vibrant social life.

Don’t Put it Off

Retirement living can be met with mixed feelings—some view it as a necessary transition, while others see it as an exciting opportunity for new experiences and adventures. However, the benefits of retirement living extend far beyond simply downsizing or relocating. In fact, retirement living offers a wealth of advantages that cater to various aspects of life. From fostering vibrant friendships to providing convenient services and amenities, retirement living presents a compelling option for individuals seeking a fulfilling and stress-free lifestyle post-retirement. 

Luxury vs. Necessity

A misconception surrounding retirement living is that it is only for those who need assistance. In reality, retirement living at Westminster Village is a  luxury living experience available to the growing retiree population. Retirement living is far from a downgrade, but rather an opportunity to live your retirement years to the fullest. With a multitude of benefits and amenities available to those who retire at Westminster Village, we believe that retirement is best done in our community. That’s why we are proud to say that life is better in the Village. 

Enjoying a Maintenance-Free Life

One of the greatest benefits of entering retirement living is that you get to enjoy a maintenance-free lifestyle. When you enter our community, you gain access to convenient and comfortable perks – like housekeeping, an on-call maintenance team, and lawn care built into your monthly fee. Our variety of independent living apartments and villas are the perfect size for a retirement living experience to accommodate your needs and preferences. Our residents feel safe with 24-hour emergency assistance, day and night. We believe that when you don’t have to worry about the daily hassles of managing your property or home, you are able to fully enjoy your retirement experience doing the things you enjoy. You’ve spent most of your life working, now it is time to relax.

Extra Time for Socialization

Another great part of retirement living is the opportunity to connect with other retirees. At Westminster Village, our community promotes a great social life. Retirement doesn’t have to mean isolation, but rather it is a new season to interact with people just like you. We offer social spaces such as a coffee kiosk and library, a club room, a spacious gym with classes, and a beauty shop to promote socialization. 

We offer a private dining room for personal celebrations, and our spacious apartments and villas make for great spaces to host friends and family. Socialization is a key part of a successful retirement experience, which is why we are dedicated to equipping our residents with everything they need to stay social.

Benefits of Touring a Senior Community

By Blog

Why Schedule a Tour?  Here are Four Reasons.

It’s very common to feel a little unsure about senior living. It can feel like a big commitment and a drastic change. Those concerns are exactly why it helps to go on your own fact-finding mission to discover what life is like there and how a community could even enhance your lifestyle. A tour is your opportunity to explore the possibilities that senior living can offer.

Just start with an open mind and a willingness to learn.

1.    See the community in person.
Pictures are great, but you notice so much more about a community when you’re there. You’ll be able to walk the halls, see the residents in their day-to-day activities, and see how team members and residents interact. You’ll also notice practical aspects of the community, like whether the group exercise space is far enough away from the quiet library, how far a hike it is to the dining room — the important details that affect residents’ days.

On a tour, you can also notice the cleanliness of the community — is it up to your standards? Take in the decor — has the community been updated or refreshed recently? Is there plenty of natural light in the residences and common spaces? Living in a clean, well-designed community will greatly enhance your quality of life, and a tour is your chance to see it for yourself.

2.    Get answers to your questions. 
The sales staff and team members want you to have the information you need to make an informed decision, so don’t hesitate. You might start with the big questions. What is the fee structure? If there is an entrance fee, is it refundable? What will happen if you or your partner needs higher levels of care in the future? Find out if your payments will increase and whether the community can provide care on-site.

Make a list of questions important to you so you can seize the opportunity to ask for details in person. And if you think of more questions after you’ve left, you can always follow up  with your tour guide.

3.    Try a bite.
Arrange for one of your visits to involve a meal. You’ll likely eat many of your meals at the community if you move in, so find out whether you like the food. This will also give you a chance to experience the level of service provided and see how the residents enjoy the dining experience. Inquire about whether any of the dining rooms have a dress code, and be sure to ask about the various dining venues available to choose from at the community.

4.    Find out how it all fits together. 
Ultimately, a visit will help you decide whether you feel at home in the community. Discover whether there are residents who share your interests and/or might introduce you to new ideas or hobbies. Would you feel comfortable in the shared spaces as well as the residences? Is the location of the campus convenient for your life outside the community? Several lifestyle pieces need to come together to create the right fit for you, so visit as many times as you need.
