5 Basic Needs of Seniors
Maintenance-free Lifestyle. Retirement communities can free up senior’s time from daily chores, housekeeping, grocery shopping and yard maintenance. As resident Lois says, “After my husband passed, the house was eating me alive. It took all my time and most of my money…I began thinking about a comfortable spot, where I could maintain a busy outside life, but have the necessary things taken care.”
Enjoying Companionship. Staying home and watching TV is not a social activity! Many communities offer activities to keep you busy from morning to night. Treemont offers fitness classes, educational clinics, writing and art programs, plus sing-alongs, movie nights, card games, lunch groups, dances, and excursions. Some seniors skip the planned activities but enjoy quiet social opportunities at meal times. Senior living can be attractive to couples when one wants more social time and the other prefers time alone.
Retaining Ones Independence. Seniors want to feel they have not given up independence by moving. Treemont residents enjoy the ease of living in new home with support services in the background so they don’t need to ask family members with help with home repairs or transportation to doctors. They discover a move has given them more independence, not less.
Getting Value for their Money. Retirement communities offer a package of services with great value. Treemont’s pricing starts at $1,650/month including rent, utilities, housekeeping, 3 meals/ daily and activities/entertainment, with no “buy-in.” Click to compare see how your monthly at-home expenses compare to Treemont.
