Life in a Retirement Community
If you are considering transitioning your elder loved one to a retirement community in Chicago area area, you know that choices are plenty and oftentimes it’s not clear what is the right choice. That is where we come in. Our Chicago elder care specialists work to ensure the best living arrangements possible for your loved one.
What is a retirement community?
A retirement community refers to a housing complex or building of older adults living independently surrounded by their peers, without any extensive outside assistance. Life in a retirement community is about convenience and the independent freedom to connect socially with other retirees in a safe and relaxing environment. Residents are free to explore their surrounding communities, and many of them maintain and operate their own vehicles.
Is retirement community right for you?
If your elder adult is interested in the freedom of independent living with the benefit of being surrounded by their peers, a retirement community may be what they are looking for. However, to make sure this is the ideal arrangement for your loved one, we always begin by conducting a thorough evaluation of their lifestyle preferences, their physical and mental state, and even an associated budget.
Then, based on the information we uncover during evaluation, we develop a personal geriatric care plan for your loved one and present top choices for retirement communities in the area. We even take care of the application paperwork for you.
We know that trying to maintain a balanced lifestyle, while taking care of an elder loved one is difficult, but if you have the right people helping you, it is doable. So, contact our geriatric care managers today for a free initial consultation and let us help you make your life and the life or your elder loved one balanced and stress-free.
