Choosing the right retirement community for you shouldn’t be a tedious task. Discovering what you value in a living space and picking a community based on that is part of the process in finding your new home.
When looking at a retirement community, it’s important to consider things like location, environment, amenities, and housing options before moving in. You can use the guide below to help guide you during the vetting process.
One of your number one priorities when looking for a retirement community should be deciding where you want to live. You should ask yourself: Do I want to be near the city or in a quieter, rural area? What do I want to have close access to?
The location of your retirement home is important for not only you, but for your visitors and family members as well. You may want to live in a space where family is close by, or somewhere with attractions to explore when they come to visit.
Southgate is located just 45 minutes outside of Boston with access to a local library, parks and festivals in Shrewsbury. There are plenty of attractions for local dining, shopping, and entertainment nearby! It also offers easy access to both Worcester and Providence!
Before you decide where you want to live during your retirement, you should tour your options. Touring retirement communities allows you the opportunity to see if you can picture yourself living there, and if it has everything you desire.
When touring, trust your gut and follow your heart. Make sure you’re comfortable in the space and truly want to spend your time there. Ask questions and see as much of the community in person as you can instead of relying on websites and pictures. Seeing the property in person will help you make an informed decision and feel more confident in your choices.
