Am I Ready For Retirement Living?

Making a move away from your or your loved one’s current home is always a difficult decision. But if you ask people who have made that move if they like the results, the majority will give you a resounding “yes” as an answer. Still not sure if it is right for you? Ask yourself the following questions:

  • Do I want easier access to social activities?
  • Do I want to live near others of my age?
  • Do I feel lonely or isolated living on my own?
  • Am I tired of making meals and doing housework?
  • Am I having difficulty maintaining my home?
  • Social and recreation programs
  • Am I worried about being alone if I fall or become ill?

If you answered yes to any of these, you might consider moving to a retirement home.

How to Select a Retirement Community

Choosing the right retirement community for yourself or a loved one is a very important decision. Like any important decision, it takes time, research and preparation to make the best choice. Start by learning more about retirement living and how it differentiates from other senior housing options.

The knowledgeable staff at Southbridge Retirement Communities can help guide you in making the right living choice. We offer a variety of age-in-place choices featuring comfortable retirement accommodations, well-appointed apartments in certain locations, accredited long-term care residences and a wide variety of programs and first class services.

When you take a tour of any retirement community, consider the following questions:

  • Ask the residents about their experiences living there
  • Ask for residents’ family references, so you may contact them for their opinions
  • Plan to stay or return another day for a complimentary lunch or dinner
  • Beyond the standard tour, check stairwells and other less-traveled areas to see how well they are cleaned and maintained
  • Don’t limit your tour to suites and common areas. Ask to see the kitchen
  • For the true experience, enquire about a trial visit or an overnight stay
  • Ask for copies of any paperwork required for admission along with samples of menus, activity calendars and newsletters
