How Luxury Senior Living in Orlando is More Than Just Housing

Posted By on January 8, 2023

Everyone loves to save money, but most of us also appreciate value. For example, if you’ve ever dined at a five-star restaurant, you probably received the bill without complaint about the cost. Why? Because you knew you weren’t just paying for the food alone; it was the experience, the atmosphere, and the company. 

You were also paying for someone to shop for the ingredients, prep the food, cook everything together into a meal, deliver the food to your table, take the plates back to the kitchen, wash the dishes, and so on. When you break down the final cost of your meal into these different jobs and factors, it really is a bargain, and the same goes for senior living communities. 

When people think about moving to a senior living community, they often only associate the cost with housing accommodations. While the cost does include housing, it may also include care, conveniences, dining, amenities, and more.

As a senior living community in Orlando, Florida, our team at HarborChase of Dr. Phillips wants to explain the benefits of choosing a luxury senior living community so you and your family can truly understand the value.

Aging in Place: Is it Cost-Effective?

Many older adults would rather age in place than move to a senior living community. In fact, one in three adults has stated that their current homes are fully equipped to allow them to age in place. Reasons for deciding to stay in your current home can vary. For example, perhaps your mortgage is already paid for, so it seems redundant to seek a housing option where you would have to pay monthly fees. 

Aging is a very personal journey, and no two people have the same experience. As you get older, think about the costs (and responsibilities) that might build up as you stay in your current home:

  • Housekeeping
  • Landscaping and lawn care
  • Utilities
  • Insurance
  • Security systems
  • Appliance repair or home improvements
  • Private caregivers

It might not seem like it at first glance, but these costs can add up quickly, especially if an unforeseen emergency occurs. For instance, if you had to hire a home health aide, it could cost upwards of $5,000/month. Add on the necessary home modifications to ensure safety, like medical alert systems, railings to aid you throughout your home, and even transportation, and you’ll be spending much more than anticipated. 

Fortunately, senior living in Orlando allows you or someone you love to become a part of a community that harbors a deep-rooted love of the Central Florida area. HarborChase of Dr. Phillips offers a range of senior living services and care and hosts stimulating activities and customized programs that enhance residents’ health and happiness.
