How to Pick the Right One for You
After many years of hard work, you are here! Congratulations on retirement—now let’s determine where to spend your golden years.
There are many standards across independent living facilities that can make it hard to tell them apart. Crucial aspects that will have a great impact on your enjoyment and quality of life in retirement are the quality of the onsite dining and healthcare facilities, and the extra recreational facilities retirement communities have onsite.
Necessities & Healthcare Facilities
The first block of facilities we will focus on relate to daily necessities and healthcare. What will you need access to onsite and nearby your retirement community?
On-campus dining options and healthcare facilities are two things to keep in mind, but you also want to ensure access to nearby hospitals, supermarkets and restaurants for sustenance. At Southgate at Shrewsbury for instance, we have fine dining and casual dining options, a convenience store, and are located near a host of great restaurants, supermarkets and shopping. We also have access to superior healthcare both on-campus and at nearby top hospitals.
With the necessities figured out, it’s time to shift your focus to other independent living community facilities that will enhance life in retirement. It is important to remain active and engaged with a variety of activities or hobbies you enjoy.
It also helps to check the surrounding area to see that your recreational and entertainment needs are met. This is why being centrally-located in Worcester County is attractive to residents at Southgate at Shrewsbury. Not only is the facility located close to a variety of entertainment and outdoor activities, Southgate has a variety of recreational facilities onsite. Residents can enjoy the custom and accessible garden, candlepin bowling, a health club & spa with an indoor swimming pool, play bocce ball, a woodworking shop, and much more within a picturesque 30-acre campus.
Your golden years should be just that—golden! Make sure you spend them at a place that helps you enhance your quality of life.
