"I'm not ready for a Retirement Community."
Often, those who say they are 'not ready yet' still think of retirement communities as stark, 'institutional' environments. The truth is that, senior living environments like The View provide resort-style living in home-style surroundings with unmatched amenities and services.
When is the 'right time' to move to a senior living facility? One way to determine whether now is the best time is to honestly answer the following questions.
- mow your lawn?
- shovel the snow?
- cook nutritious meals?
- feel safe when you shower or bathe?
- have someone to help you if you fall?
- feel comfortable driving your car?
- keep up with your appearance?
- get out of the house regularly for social reasons?
A 'no' answer to several questions indicates that you would likely benefit from community living. Remember, your good health is your best assurance of being able to live at The View. If you wait until you need significant assistance, it may be too late to qualify. Besides, you want to be healthy enough to enjoy all we have to offer!
