Retirement Planning: When To Make The Move
Home is where the heart is – it’s a place where we experience many firsts and create many memories. As a result, coming to terms with the fact that our homes may no longer be functional or safe for us as we age can be an upsetting realization.
A lot of attachment to our homes can come from a fear of losing independence. In reality, choosing to move can be the key to preserving independence. While we associate activities like running errands, cooking meals, dressing, and cleaning our homes with maintaining independence, these can quickly go from daily responsibilities to daily adversities when we no longer have the mobility to complete them.
Once we’ve realized that it’s time to make the change, moving becomes the next barrier for many older adults looking at retirement living. While this can feel overwhelming, many retirement communities have resources and connections to make moving as efficient as possible. At Trico LivingWell, we are happy to recommend service providers who can assist you with every part of the process – downsizing, selling your current home, moving, unpacking, and setting up. Once you’ve arrived, Trico LivingWell supports its resident’s independence through a strong wellness culture that prioritizes health, wellness, and quality of life. At Trico LivingWell, independence is all about choice – in activities, dining, and healthcare services, all in a safe and healthy environment.
Maintain Independence Through Activities
One of the best ways to maintain independence is through lifelong learning! Trico LivingWell’s in-house and external programming gives our residents the convenience and support they need to continue doing what they love. With a wide variety of activities ranging from music to art to gardening, there is something for everyone.
Maintain Independence Through Fitness
Staying active goes hand in hand with good health and wellness, two crucial components that help us remain independent for longer. Trico LivingWell hosts daily fitness classes led by professional instructors and specialists focused on fun first – with added movements for balance, mobility, and slip and fall prevention.
Maintain Independence Through On-Site Health Care Services
Sometimes, continuing to be able to do the things you love requires some additional support as we age. That’s why we offer flexible options and amenities at Trico LivingWell. By assisting with nutrition, medication management, bathing, housekeeping, and more, we ensure that our residents choose how they age in place.
Ensure The Choice Is Yours
Sometimes, life throws us unexpected curve balls like accidents, injury, or illness. When you have an established plan in place, this ensures that the choice is yours. You also avoid putting your loved ones in the position of having to make decisions on your behalf. Through some research and planning, you can ensure that you find a retirement living option that allows you to age with purpose and passion while living in comfort and confidence.
