Your Guide to the Luxury Senior Living LifestylePosted By HarborChase on March 1, 2023
It’s estimated that baby boomers hold about $3 trillion of net worth, so it’s no surprise that many seniors are looking to retire in style. By 2030, all baby boomers will be 65 or older, so the senior housing industry has adapted and grown with the rising demands for active, luxurious senior living.
While most senior living communities offer amenities, apartment-style housing, and enriching programs, luxury senior living communities take it up a notch by creating an environment that feels more like resort-style living.
At HarborChase Senior Living, our communities have adopted this luxurious lifestyle so residents get the most out of their retirement years. From world-class dining to life-enhancing wellness programs, we offer a lifestyle worth celebrating!
What is a Luxury Senior Living Community?
Think of the last time you stayed at a resort or a beautiful hotel; you were able to relax and take advantage of various services and amenities to make your stay enjoyable and memorable.
Luxury senior living communities are no different. Residents live in spacious and beautiful housing accommodations with state-of-the-art features and details. In addition, housekeeping services allow residents to live maintenance-free, so that they don’t have to worry about laundry, deep cleaning, or yard work.
These communities typically include one or more lifestyle options, such as Independent Living, Assisted Living, and Memory Care.
Who Should Consider Luxury Senior Living?
If you or someone you love is looking to get the most out of your senior living experience, a luxury senior living community is the right choice. Older adults who engage in active lifestyles or enjoy staying on the go can benefit from unique amenities and premier services.
Those who need assistance with daily tasks can benefit from assisted living in a luxury community; they’ll be able to enjoy all of the assets offered in independent living while receiving the daily help they need to maintain a full and active lifestyle.
Older adults who are living with a form of dementia can live comfortably and safely in memory care while enjoying enriching life services and engaging programs that can help improve cognitive function.
What Should You Look for in a Luxury Senior Living Community?
When touring a luxury community, there’s much more to look for than elegant details and high-end living spaces. It’s important to keep in mind this community should be able to handle any needs that arise in the future and offer you the tools you need to elevate your lifestyle.
Make sure a community offers varying levels of care should you or your loved one require any assistance in the future, allowing a resident to easily transition into the next level of care rather than having to switch communities. It’s also crucial to ensure the community is close to high-quality hospitals and other health facilities in case of emergencies.
Check out the community’s offered transportation options, especially if you plan on exploring the surrounding areas. This is particularly essential for those who enjoy an on-the-go lifestyle, people who want to be able to run errands, or for a fun afternoon on the town.
It’s also important to talk to residents and associates about their experiences. For example, ask residents how the community has helped them reach their potential and goals and talk to them about their favorite amenities. Remember, these might be your future neighbors, so this is also a great way to get to know them.
Speak with associates about how they implement themselves into the daily routines and lives of residents, and ask them which services they carry out. In addition, ask them about the dining program, the amenities, and the availability of enrichment programs, and request they explain to you how these concepts come together to create community culture.
While a resort guest may enjoy their stay for a night or two, our HarborChase residents choose to call our luxury senior living communities home. It is an honor and a great responsibility, motivating us each day to do more for our residents, guests, and families.
We invite you to find a HarborChase community near you and start Celebrating Senior Living with us!
