As you think about your future, thoughts of where you might live cross your mind. What do you want to experience in the next stage of your life? Is staying in your current residence the best fit for your goals and ambitions? Will you be able to maintain your home inside and outside and pay for the necessary upkeep that accompanies home ownership? Would a move offer more opportunity to meet friends or fulfill a sense of security? To help you decide, consider these few things:
Staying in your home allows you to remain in a familiar setting, but it also comes with a lot of work! From managing home maintenance and yardwork to overseeing repairs and upkeep, these tasks can be extremely costly and can easily divert you from your preferred leisure activities. At John Knox Village Life Plan Community, this is never a worry as you enjoy hassle-free maintenance without spending out of pocket! In addition, living at John Knox Village provides many opportunities for socialization that may not be easily accessible to you at your current home.
55+ communities. These age-restricted communities often appeal to people looking for a certain lifestyle; however, should residents’ health needs ever change, they are not equipped to provide appropriate services, which may result in another move.
Life Plan Communities or Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRCs) offer a more layered approach to retirement living. With this lifestyle, you enjoy countless amenities and services, but also have access to and the peace of mind of having a full range of healthcare services should you ever need it.
