Living arrangements for senior citizens can vary greatly from independent living communities to nursing homes, and it is important to select the right environment for your personal needs. Independent living communities like The Lakes at Waterford are ideal for seniors seeking active, rich lives to encourage years of optimal mental and physical health.
Physical activity is essential for healthy aging, and on-site facilities make exercise within reach for older adults of all fitness levels. Walking paths along landscaped grounds also encourage healthy activity in the warmth of the outdoors during the spring and summer.
With indoor and outdoor property maintenance, you can spend more time doing the activities you enjoy rather than working to keep up the appearance of your home. Plus, you can avoid a number of common injuries by not having to clean and landscape your house on a regular basis.
Trips and enrichment programs
While independent living communities offer a great assortment of activities and amenities on-site, it is also important to get out into the surrounding community for shopping, dining or entertainment. Arranged outings and programs will give you the opportunity to take a day trip without the stress of travel and planning.
From high tea every afternoon to biweekly bingo and weekly social groups, there are plenty of opportunities to stay socially active as a senior citizen. Interacting with peers is a great way to keep your mind active as you stay physically active in your daily routine.
The Lakes At Waterford offers all of these amenities, in addition to luxurious accommodations and personal care services to enrich your daily life. To schedule a visit to The Lakes At Waterford’s community, call 630-585-8047 today.
