Senior living in Houston residents have this to say about moving to Treemont

•No more upkeep of a large home!

•No more chores or housekeeping!

•No more maintenance!

    I’ve told other  people I’ve finally found a” wife,” a really good wife, who takes care of my house and takes care of my food. In addition, I have a “husband” that takes care of all of the outdoors chores, and makes everything lovely. One day I was writing an email to someone, and I said you know, someone is cleaning my house right  now, and someone else is cooking my lunch and someone else will will do the dishes.                                             ~Jeanne

Also I never ever felt any kind of connection to housekeeping …dusting and mopping.  And every now and then, I remember someone comes once a week. What a glorious way to live the second half of my life!"                                    ~Maggie

    After my husband died, I realized, the house was eating me alive. It took all my time and money. It was a sizeable house to take care of all by myself; or hire somebody. I began thinking in terms of finding a more comfortable spot, where I could still maintain an outside life, but it would be easier for me. I have the necessary things taken care of now, like meals, grocery shopping, security, utilities and cable.                                ~Lois

I wanted to simplify life and make it easy for when the time comes when I need more help.  I no longer needed a car or house. I’m 80, a Healthy 80. I don’t need lots of things yet that Treemont provides, but I’m happy here. I was sick one time and used home health for a very short period of time.                                             ~Jeanne

I am satisfied with the arrangements here. I kept my double apartment ….and as you can see my daughter is visiting and she has her own bedroom because I never gave up my apartment. I can have my children or family members come and stay the night.                                   ~Beryl     

I have a son coming in from FL to spend Thanksgiving with me.  I no longer have a home to worry about. I have a beautiful apartment. Treemont has several beautiful guest apartments. I was impressed at how nice it is. I’ve been really happy here.                                              ~Jeanne

This blog post describes the benefits of assisted living via the “real life” experiences of Houston residents who made their senior living decision — and chose Treemont

Visit a Community. It is always a wise move to take the time to visit the independent living community a few times — have lunch, join an entertainment event, party or activity. Meet residents who have had illustrative careers in banking, oil and gas industry, teaching and other careers. Join their coffee klatches and see the camaderie that has developed. It is a joy to see the new friendships made among senior residents in assisted living communities. It is a pleasure to have senior tell me how happy they are in their new home, without the upkeep of their home, or having to worry about cooking meals.

It is so hard to overcome the emotion of selling one’s 50-year home or downsizing from a large apartment to a smaller one. It is often hard to imagine that new friendships can be forged in one’s golden years. Residing in an active senior living community in Houston, TX can be the best of all worlds…independence, activities, companionship, stability and great food!  Plan to visit a few senior living communities to determine which would be the best fit for you. I often hear the only complaint a resident has after moving to Treemont Retirement Community is, “I just wish I knew then what I know now….and if I did, the one thing I would have changed is I would have moved sooner!”  This is the time to take the necessary steps to secure your lifestyle for the future. Take the first step by scheduing your free lunch and tour.
