The Top 5 Benefits Of Independent Living For Vancouver Seniors

While there are some seniors who find themselves in search of assisted living facilities, there are other seniors who are able to reside in an independent living in the Vancouver region. These seniors remain healthy and vibrant, leading them to search for residencies that cater to a different set of needs.

Let's take a closer look at the top five benefits that independent living facilities have to offer Vancouver seniors. These are all factors that need to be considered and seniors who take the time to do so will enjoy a much smoother transition into their independent living facility in Vancouver.

1. Living Without Worry

For many seniors, there are zero issues when it comes to taking care of themselves each day and they have no problems with living alone. However, an independent living facility serves to make their lives even easier by removing all of the guesswork from their existence. There is no more having to worry about any sort of maintenance or upkeep and all of these annoyingly cumbersome tasks are handled for you each month.

2. Increased Socialization

Seniors who reside in an independent living facility will often choose these areas because they are looking for ways to get out and meet other like-minded individuals. Making new friends and finding opportunities to socialize can be difficult, especially as we grow older. Thanks to independent living facilities, seniors who are in search of ways to successfully expand their social circle are now given the chance to do so more easily.

3. All Inclusive Rent Payments

These facilities remove much of the financial strain by providing a senior with a place to live and socialize that comes with one simple monthly bill. Utilities and maintenance costs are included in these monthly fees, allowing a senior to write one check each month and let the rest take care of itself. Just imagine how easy life can be when you do not have to worry about various bills and expenses each month!

4. Access To Various Amenities and Services

When you are the owner of your own home, this comes with a great deal of work and you need to be sure that you are placing yourself in a position that is advantageous for your long term health. You may feel up to handling all of these tasks today, but that does not mean that it is advisable from a future health standpoint. All of the amenities and services that you need are located on site at an independent living facility and in most instances, residents compare the experience to living at a five star resort.

5. Available Assistance

While facilities of this nature typically do not offer care on site, this care is readily accessible if you need it. Those who reside in these facilities will also tend to choose housing that is sufficiently close to their friends and family members, so that they can receive necessary assistance without having to travel for long distances. This keeps their loved ones from spending time worrying about their whereabouts.

“I was perfectly happy in my home - but I came here and everybody was so nice. I thought, what a good idea to give it a try.”
“Just because we’re retired doesn’t mean we’re retired from life. We stay fit, we love the food, and there's plenty for us to do out in the community. It's a great life, and the people here are wonderful.“
“The thing I value most is that I have my independence, and I get to choose what I want to do with my time. There are so many opportunities here, and I make sure I take advantage of them.”
“There's so many things that you're offered - food, entertainment, good friends, good accommodation. Lift the phone and you've got everything you want.“
“I just think it's fabulous what they do here at Tapestry.“
"I was facing up to the prospect of living alone and I was already looking, and this place was just going to be developed - they hadn't even turned the sod yet - but I became aware of it. I just liked the looks of what they were going to do and it has turned out to be an excellent choice."
“It's an ideal combination of privacy, or not, as you will. You can live entirely self-sufficiently in your suite with your own kitchen and everything, but when you feel the need for company, it's right there. I've made lots of new friends here. It's ideal.”
