Have you finally had it with the hassle of homeownership? Maybe you’re done dealing with traveling across the city just to get to a crowded fitness center. Then you need to experience the many benefits of living in a senior apartment home.
Senior apartments are just that — apartments within communities that are specifically designed to meet the needs and wants of older adults. From just the right floor plans to on-site amenities, read these 7 reasons senior apartments are perfect for retirement.
1. Maintenance-Free Living
Never again worry about setting the sprinklers, mowing your lawn, or fixing old appliances, because senior apartments are maintenance-free. An expert maintenance team takes care of the interior and exterior features of your apartment.
That doesn’t mean you won’t have the opportunity to use your green thumb. Many retirement communities, including Rolling Green Village, have gardening spaces where residents can grow flowers and produce.
2. Most Utilities Covered
From electric bills to property taxes, paying for the cost of homeownership is an expensive chore. When you move into a senior apartment, your basic utilities are typically covered (sometimes with the exception of phone and internet), and you don’t have to worry about a hefty property tax, because these costs are covered in your monthly service fees.
Many residents eliminate expensive car payments because almost everything you need is located on-site, and scheduled transportation is available for things like grocery shopping, local medical appointments, and group outings.
3. Increased Social Life
Enrich your social life with a calendar of activities at a vibrant retirement community like Rolling Green Village, where there’s never a dull moment. Join your friends and neighbors and create a masterpiece in the arts and craft studio, play pool in the billiards room, or tend to the community garden.
Worried about falling behind on household chores while you’re ramping up your social life? Senior apartments offer convenient housekeeping services that let you live a carefree lifestyle. At our retirement community in Greenville, SC, we offer home maintenance and biweekly housekeeping services, so you always have time for the things you love.
4. Lock-and-Leave Lifestyle
When you own a home, you can’t take a vacation without feeling a little worried something might happen while you’re away. Someone could break in, there could be a water leak, or a storm might cause damage. With a senior apartment home, those worries disappear.
You can lock and leave your apartment behind knowing it will be safe and sound. Not only can you rely on security measures from your community, but your neighbors will keep an eye out for suspicious activity as well. That means you can set sail on a round-the-world cruise and come back to your home just the way you left it.
5. Just the Right Amount of Space
You like to work on your physical fitness, but traveling up and down the stairs of your home all day can be exhausting. Not to mention, large spaces lead to sprawling clutter. If you’re ready to simplify your environment with just the right number of creature comforts, senior apartments are the solution!
Get rid of your clunky dining room table in favor of a charming bistro table, downsize your old couch to a modern-looking loveseat, and finally have a reason to replace your bulky recliner.
6. A Variety of Floor Plans
We can’t speak for other retirement communities in South Carolina, but Rolling Green Village has a wide variety of senior floor plans. From charming and cozy senior studios to spacious three-bedroom apartments, we have a floor plan that’s just right for your lifestyle. Plus, our Health and Wellness Center is just steps away from your front door!
Our retirement community completed an exciting new expansion last year that includes 23 single-family patio homes to further suit the needs of seniors in Greenville. Schedule a tour with one of our residency counselors to explore all the ways you can enjoy your retirement in our community.
7. Plan Your Day Around Incredible Amenities
When you live in a senior apartment in a community like Rolling Green Village, you can treat yourself to a whole day of services, amenities and wellness activities that aren’t overcrowded by younger people.
You can meet with your friends in the morning for coffee and conversation, take a dip in the indoor pool at the Health and Wellness Center before lunch, spend the afternoon in the arts and crafts studio, eat a lovely meal with your neighbors at a restaurant-style dining venue, and finish your evening by taking your dog on a relaxing walk on beautifully landscaped paths — all without ever leaving the community.
