More and more, single seniors are making the transition to studio or one-bedroom apartments. In fact, one in four seniors in the United States already live alone, often to maintain their current lifestyle and level of independence.
But what if there was a way to keep your life the way it is and live without the obligations of maintenance, cooking or housework? Senior living communities have become increasingly popular among single seniors for these very reasons and because they offer seniors an opportunity to forge strong new connections.
Keep reading to learn why retirement communities are great for single seniors in settings like Peter Becker Community.
Socializing and Making Meaningful Connections
In retirement, you can make a lot of social connections. Making a big life transition can be a little daunting for some single seniors. Luckily, there’s much that senior living communities can offer, especially if you are recently on your own. There are friendly people in retirement communities who are happy to help you feel at home, packed schedules with fun trips and a number of social events to keep residents engaged.
When you’re a single senior, you can imagine independent living communities as being like college campuses. As you build a strong social network, you can meet a lot of people. With a senior living community, you don’t have to go out of your way to meet friends. You will be able to meet friends right where you live.
Indulging in an Independent Lifestyle
There are a number of floor plan options available for singles seeking a more engaging retirement lifestyle in senior living communities.
Those on a budget or those looking for an affordable option who still want to live in a community can choose studios or one-bedroom apartments. Your savings on yard care, home maintenance, gym memberships and more are just some of the amenities that Peter Becker Community offers. Additionally, Peter Becker Community offers many services to make this move as smooth as possible by helping incoming residents rightsize for their new space.
Enjoying a Maintenance-Free Way of Life
With all the responsibilities of home maintenance on your plate, you may not have much time to pursue your passions as an older single.
As a resident of a senior living community, you won’t need to care for your lawn or clean your home anymore as residents in a community. Chefs usually prepare meals daily in these communities. You can spend more time relaxing, exploring the local area, and meeting other residents once the cooking and cleaning are done.
