The Best Gift
Watching their parents age can be overwhelming for adult children. It can get even more complicated when the topic of moving to a senior living community comes up. Children may feel guilty about having their parents age away from home. Likewise, seniors may be wary because they envision a traditional “retirement home” characterized by loneliness and loss of independence.
Continuing care retirement communities (CCRCs) are breaking those stereotypes by offering a distinctive and fulfilling lifestyle that seniors and their adult children can feel good about.
Free of property and home maintenance responsibilities, seniors can take time to pursue their passions and take advantage of new opportunities. They can enjoy gourmet cuisine, an active social scene and many engaging activities and programs. An independent living environment allows seniors to live a life of purpose and fulfillment, which keeps them healthier, happier and more comfortable.
New Pond Village resident Rosalie Bloom describes her move to New Pond Village as the best gift she gave herself and her family. Rosalie moved to New Pond Village months after her husband passed away. The warm welcome from her fellow residents and the little touches—like the fruit and cheese platter in her fridge when she moved in—immediately put her at ease. Her son and three daughters supported the decision and are thrilled to see their mom safe, content and thriving.
In addition to abundant amenities, such as freshly prepared meals, housekeeping and linen service, a library, a pub and a hair salon, residents are ensured a continuum of care if needed.
That’s why both seniors and their children are embracing CCRCs. Seniors enjoy a worry-free lifestyle, while their children gain peace of mind knowing their parents are active, healthy and happy.
