5 Benefits of Moving to a Senior Living Community

There are a lot of stereotypes that exist around senior living communities. But not all communities fall within them. In fact, there are some benefits of retirement that seniors can only enjoy in senior living communities, rather than aging in their home.

Searstone, with its new expansion, The Highview, pushes these boundaries and prompts you to open your mind to a welcoming, all-inclusive community. It’s our goal to solve your challenges and make your day-to-day life easier, all while providing you with a stable support system to enhance your quality of life.

Not all communities are designed the same. That’s why finding the right one for you or your loved one is crucial to a superb experience. Find out how Searstone can meet your needs and give you the retirement lifestyle you deserve.

Convenience of Senior Living

As you get older, it can be difficult or tiring to get out around town, or even to make it to doctor’s appointments and pick up prescriptions. Simple tasks such as going to the grocery store or cooking meals for yourself can become a hassle.

Imagine the convenience of having all your necessities right within your backyard. In a senior living community, you’ll have access to everything you need right at your fingertips. From health care and appointments, to onsite dining and recreational activities — you won’t be burdened by running these types of errands. In fact, Searstone features multiple dining options for every mood and palate, including a casual dining option as well as the upscale White Horse Bar & Grille. The Highview expansion will bring many new dining options including the following:

  • Chophouse-style Restaurant
  • Tavern
  • Marketplace
    • Bistro Grill
    • Chef Stage Center
    • Brick Oven and Hand Crafted Sandwiches
    • The Farmer’s Field

Residents don’t have to sacrifice the luxuries of their own private home for convenience. The endless amenities allow you to feel at home, such as the spacious floor plans available in one-bedroom, two-bedroom, and two-bedroom plus den units. All apartments have a washer and dryer, as well as a dining and bistro space, ample storage, and ceramic tile or other hard surface flooring options.

The walkable neighborhood is complete with outdoor community gathering spaces to entertain guests or spend time with other residents, as well as walking paths and landscaping — all of which will be upgraded as part of The Highview expansion project. Additional community amenities include 24/7 concierge services, transportation services, parking, and easy access to retail, restaurants, and medical offices.

Maintenance-Free Living

Perhaps one of the main reasons people move into independent living communities as they get older is so they can let go of some of the burdens that go along with owning a home. Routine yard work, regular house maintenance and upkeep are time consuming. And the costs that go along with it add up.

Staying at Searstone is maintenance-free living. The landscape will always be perfectly groomed. Regular housekeeping and linen service will keep your place tidy. So you’ll reap all the benefits of having your own independent living apartment, without any of the struggles of dealing with upkeep.

Warm, Welcoming Community

Seniors can often get lonely when staying in their own homes by themselves, as it can become increasingly difficult to get out and about and they may live a great distance from friends and family.

Senior living communities are typically made up of tight-knit, like-minded individuals, so residents can come together to enjoy experiences and activities while nurturing long-lasting relationships. You’ll have the opportunity to create a new group of friends by attending programs, joining a music group, or taking an on-site yoga class to meet interesting people your age.

Prioritize Your Wellness

Wellness can very easily fall by the wayside as seniors grow older on their own. What should be the number one priority can be difficult to keep up with. A senior living community ensures that this will be top of mind — while doing so in a fun and exciting way.

Searstone’s approach to wellness sets it apart from other communities. We focus on Eight Dimensions of Wellness: Social, Intellectual, Spiritual, Environmental, Physical, Nutritional, Outreach, and Cultural. Wellness cannot be classified into just one vast bucket, so by paying attention to each of these areas, residents have a better chance of staying healthy overall.

And to facilitate residents’ health and wellness, an on-site state-of-the-art fitness center, indoor swimming pool and spa, and salon and massage area are all available.

Community Health Care

Independent Living residents will have access to many health options that are tailored to their specific needs, all on-site. State-of-the-art Assisted Living, Skilled Nursing, and Memory Support are just a few of the options available to you.

Many find that moving to a senior living community is a decision that allows them to prioritize their health, wellness and happiness. Searstone could be the right place for you or your loved one, and The Highview expansion is your opportunity to be a part of this vibrant community.
