More and more senior adults are choosing an apartment over home ownership. If you’re currently living in your own home, maintenance can be an even bigger nuisance; you have to get multiple expert opinions to get the best price, and even then, it might not get fixed. When the worst happens, you’re on your own to deal with the problem. No one wants that, especially as you transition into living in a retirement community.
Here are three great reasons to pick maintenance-free apartment living when choosing a great retirement community:
1. It’s Hassle-free
Living in a Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) is a great way to have an enjoyable retirement community experience. Living in a retirement community should feel stress and hassle-free, so why shouldn’t it also be maintenance-free? Luxury CCRCs like South Bay at Mount Pleasant include a combination of residential and care options designed to provide a “continuum of care” for residents.
Part of the perks of living in this community is maintenance-free living, which fixes up your living space, hassle-free. Rather than having to go out and get the parts to do it yourself, CCRCs take over the trouble of fixing your living space so you can focus on more important things.
2. It Gives You More Free Time
Living in a CCRC should be all about relaxing and getting to use the amenities you’ve taken so much care to look for when deciding on your new home, not fixing up things that are broken. Although maintenance issues may seem like something easy to handle now, thinking in the long term can save you a lot of free time if you don’t have to take care of these problems. After all, retirement should be fun and relaxing, but still feel like home. With maintenance-free apartment living, you can easily enjoy the perks of your community at your leisure, without having to worry about fixing things in your home.
Find a retirement community that offers features such as cleaning services, maintenance repair and garden upkeep. Taking even these minor tasks off your to-do list will leave you with more time to enjoy your retirement.
3. Peace of Mind
Maintenance-free apartment living gives you peace of mind, because it ensures that what needs to be done will be done, always. No more having to get three plumbers to look at your problem or have a pipe burst all over again; now, you can be sure that things will get taken care of for you the right way every time.
