Senior independent living communities give residents the opportunities to build new friendships through socializing at meals, frequently planned activities, excursions, and health and fitness classes. Here at Southfield, our senior independent living community is newly renovated.
A Sense of Community
One of the main differences between senior independent living and staying in one’s home in a regular residential neighborhood is the sense of community. Knowing your neighbors and interacting with them is a major component in having a high quality of life. As we age, the neighborhood around us changes. Sometimes this means those you once knew have moved. By looking into a community like Southfield, seniors can find a new community made up of like-minded individuals.
Home maintenance is physically demanding and emotionally draining. Some people find they just don’t want to deal with the anxiety of maintaining a house any longer. Repairs, lawn care, and snow-removal take their toll on your body. In retirement, these burdens are the last thing you want to have to deal with. Senior independent living at Southfield takes these burdens off your shoulders. When you come to our community, you can pursue your love of gardening or tinkering at your leisure.
Similarly, we also cover housekeeping services and laundry. Freeing up your time so you can pursue your interests, travel, or learn something new. Retirement should be a time of relaxation and freedom. You’ve earned a break from chores. Senior independent living means maintenance-free living.
Physical Fitness and Mental Stimulation
It’s well known that seniors who are active benefit not only physically but also mentally. Exercise not only keeps your body fit, but your mind engaged as well. Being physically active lowers the risk of mental health issues like dementia, depression, or anxiety. Our health and wellness programs at Southfield give residents options. There is a variety of workouts available for all levels of mobility. Our group classes are a fun way to stay engaged with your neighbors while also maintaining your overall health and wellbeing. Even as communities practice social distancing, activities directors have come up with new ways to keep seniors active. We also encourage residents to be proactive in forming groups with their peers to exercise regularly such as walking groups, aerobic groups, or even gardening.
