CCRC’s Like New Pond Village Grow In Popularity
The senior population continues to grow as Baby Boomers age and so does the need for senior living options.
Continuing care retirement communities (CCRC) like New Pond Village in Walpole, Massachusetts, are becoming more popular choices.
Part of the reason for the increase in the popularity of the CCRCs is that a couple can make just one move. As health needs change, the specialized care and support are available at a CCRC.
Researching senior living communities that offer plenty of activities, stress-free living, no lawn or yard work and gourmet meals continues to be a task that a lot of adult children spend time doing. This has become a family decision.
New Pond Village offers all the amenities and in a beautiful setting in scenic Walpole. The location is close to town, but not “too close,” say residents like John Tincler, Leif Jacobsen, Miriam “Mim” Eames, Dolores Efthim, Phil Sullivan and many others who have chosen New Pond Village as the place to start their next chapter.
New Pond Village also is a Lifecare Community.
Lifecare is a fairly new descriptor for communities offering a spectrum of care. LeadingAge, a non-profit industry group representing aging services providers, notes that Lifecare communities have certain defining characteristics.
In most cases, Lifecare communities offer more than a single level of care within a campus. They also focus on encouraging active lifestyles for residents.
Lifecare communities offer a range of services and amenities for personalized care. By choosing a Lifecare community like New Pond Village, residents can feel confident that as their health changes, their needs will be met without having to move to a different community.
Additional benefits of communities that follow the Lifecare model include:
- A focus on health and wellness at every age and level of ability. Communities offer fitness centers, pools, classes and services designed to enhance well-being.
- A full calendar of activities that encourage socialization and intellectual stimulation. Residents have many opportunities to keep their minds sharp and interact with others through a variety of performances, lectures, group meetings and social events.
- A low-maintenance lifestyle. Lifecare communities take care of all home maintenance, lawn care, snow removal and security. This allows residents time to focus on their own happiness and fulfillment.
- Homelike living spaces and common areas with warm, inviting decor.
- Multiple dining options, from formal dining rooms to casual cafés.
