Retirement is a wonderful, exciting time in your life–you finally have the freedom to travel, explore your interests and hobbies and create a robust social life.
But as you enter your golden years, you may realize you aren’t up to driving daily to meet up with friends, and maintaining a highly connected social life isn’t as easy as you thought.
With loneliness and social isolation recognized as significant health risks for seniors, it might be time to consider moving to a senior living community–where activities are planned, and friends are just a short walk away!
Maranatha Village of Springfield, MO, shares three incredible benefits of joining a senior living community in this post.
You’re Never Lonely
One of the top benefits of a senior living community is having an on-site social network!
Senior living communities often center around social events and activities, and you don’t have to drive anywhere to attend.
Developing strong bonds with the people who live near you increases your sense of belonging and social connectedness, significantly reducing any health risks from loneliness and isolation.
At Maranatha Village in Springfield, MO, we offer regular worship services, choir practice, walking trails, and more.
Ease of Mind
Living on your own as a senior can be a vulnerable feeling. Senior living communities offer the peace of mind that comes with higher security, 24/7 on-site staff in case of emergency, and close relationships with your neighbors.
Senior living communities also take care of tasks like yard-work and home maintenance, snow removal, trash, and meal service so that you can focus on the good things in life!
Enjoy Your Forever Home
Many senior living communities–such as Maranatha Village in Springfield, MO, feature different levels of care. This means if you love your community, you may be able to live out the rest of your days without the stress of moving.
If you start in independent living, it will be a smoother transition to stay on-site when you need to increase your level of care. Maranatha Village offers independent living, assisted living, and long-term care.
