When it comes to retirement planning, one of the most important decisions you can make is where to live. A spacious house was useful a few years ago, but now it just provides a lot of hard work.

Senior living communities are a wonderful way to get everything you want out of retirement, especially if you’re a single senior ready to downsize to a smaller space. From maintenance-free living to plenty of social opportunities, read these benefits of moving into an apartment home for seniors:

Living in an Apartment Home Offers a Better Way to Manage Your Finances

It doesn’t matter if you use a traditional calendar or an app on your smartphone, coordinating bills every month is difficult, especially when you’re on a fixed income. Take the hassle out of paying bills by living in an apartment home for seniors at a community like Peace Village. Your monthly fee includes:

  • A spacious floor plan
  • Use of community services and amenities
  • Gas, electric, water, sewer and trash
  • Basic cable
  • Wi-Fi campuswide

With the monthly fee for your residence, you can cover the cost of most of your recurring bills, and take the guesswork out of managing your finances during retirement.

Find More Time for What You Love with Maintenance-Free Living

While tidying up the living room is usually no big deal, cleaning your large kitchen and multiple bathrooms and bedrooms can take a lot of your free time. With a one-bedroom apartment home, you only have to worry about cleaning a few small rooms, which gives you much more freedom to spend your time how you want.

At Peace Village, we feature maintenance-free living, which means you never have to worry about expensive home repairs, replacing a broken appliance, mowing the lawn or snow removal. Our maintenance team will take care of everything, so you don’t have to lift a finger.

Consider a One-Bedroom Apartment Home with a Den for a Little More Space

If you want to downsize your home, but still want a little more space than a traditional one-bedroom apartment home, consider a one-bedroom with a den. You’ll still get all the benefits of living in a smaller space, but an additional room will allow you to customize your apartment home to match your lifestyle.

For instance, you can turn your den into an office, personal library, or create a relaxing space to knit or meditate. It’s also the perfect place for a cat tree or dog bed.

You Never Have to Worry About Portion Size with Senior Living Dining Venues

When you’re a single senior, it’s easy to let the food in your fridge and pantry go to waste. It’s not because it’s unappetizing, it’s simply because you can’t eat all that food before it expires. Many recipes serve several people, and most packaged food in the grocery store contains too many servings for one person.

At a senior living community like Peace Village, residents enjoy a variety of indoor and outdoor dining options that feature menu items for every palette. Instead of dining on leftovers, fill up with food like flatbreads, seasonal salads, omelets, burgers or steak. The portion size is just right for one person, and you can eat something different every day of the week.

Moving to a Senior Living Community Upgrades Your Lifestyle

Are you tired of things like creaky floorboards and outdated appliances? Then upgrade to an apartment home for seniors at Peace Village. The beautifully appointed apartment homes in our community feature quartz countertops, maple cabinets, brushed nickel hardware and light fixtures, GE® appliances and Thermopane® casement windows. 

You’ll also be able to use the on-site fitness center with a full-time trainer, computer/media center, outdoor recreation areas, beauty salon/barbershop, and dedicated space for billiards, gaming and parties. With additional benefits like a Wellness Center, free pharmacy delivery and on-site U.S. postal services, almost everything you need is all on the same campus.

There Are Social Opportunities Around Every Corner and Easy Ways to Meet New People

For many single seniors, the best part about moving into an apartment home in a community like ours is the vibrant social scene. There are a plethora of opportunities that provide the chance to meet new people, make new friends and discover new interests that enrich your retirement. At Peace Village, you can enjoy:

  • Fitness classes
  • Outdoor recreation areas
  • Resident-driven special interest groups
  • Social and educational opportunities
  • Spiritual gatherings 
  • Events and entertainment

We even schedule special events for your family that include entertainment, games and activities for all ages.
