Walkable green spaces, easy connections with new friends, social engagements every day, live music, plenty of space for celebrations, a gorgeous maintenance-free home. These are just some of the reasons people choose Glenmeadow’s Life Plan Community their home as they settle into retirement.
Glenmeadow’s Life Plan Community is a modern, independent senior living community that helps you sustain an active, healthy lifestyle as you age. Exercise correlates with a longer, healthier life, while remaining socially connected and intellectually challenged may help delay the onset of dementia. In this regard, a Glenmeadow can improve your life.
Here are seven reasons to consider life at Glenmeadow:
1. Maintenance-Free Living
Your home can be a source of pride and joy. It can also be a money pit and a full-time job. Glenmeadow empowers you to enjoy a lovely, clean home without the leaky pipes, broken dishwasher and other inconveniences of homeownership. In our Life Plan Community, you’ll get housekeeping help, modern appliances and a convenient, thoughtfully designed home you’ll be proud to invite friends over. No more waiting around for the exterminator, comparing roofing companies or saving to fix busted appliances — we do it all for you.
2. Focus Your Attention On What Matters Most
What have you always wanted to do? What has stood in your way? For most people, it’s a combination of time and support. Glenmeadow’s Life Plan Community offers both. Our maintenance-free lifestyle means you can spend your time mastering new skills, revisiting old hobbies or simply relaxing. Our wide array of activities — from live music to enrichment classes — can help you discover hobbies you never knew you had while enjoying meaningful time with friends and family.
3. Enjoy Exceptional Dining
Are you sick of cooking or grocery shopping? You’re not alone. One recent study found that Americans experienced a high rate of cooking fatigue during the pandemic. Even if you love cooking, the thought of cooking three meals a day forever may feel daunting. At Glenmeadow, you’ll enjoy healthy, delicious food that caters to your palate and nutritional needs. Cook when you want; you may even rediscover the joys of being a home chef. Outsource all the other meals, so you can spend your days as you wish.
4. Everything You Need Is Accessible
One of the frustrating realities of an active lifestyle is that it’s often the preparation and planning that eat up the most time. A quick jaunt to the farmers market might require numerous calls to friends to see who wants to go, coordinating schedules, driving there and back, and more. At Glenmeadow, fun doesn’t require a lot of planning or even access to transportation. Our residents enjoy a wide range of programming and a chance to cultivate new hobbies and skills. Spend more time doing the things you love and less time planning.
5. You’ll Form Meaningful Relationships
Relationships make life worth living. Glenmeadow provides easy access to a new group of friends in a welcoming environment. Feeling lonely? Head to one of the common areas or just step outside of your door to attend a class. You may find that Glenmeadow also supports your current relationships. You’ll no longer need to rely on your kids for transportation or other support, and that can restore a sense of balance. You and your partner or spouse may find more joy thanks to a lively, activity-rich environment. And your friends will be eager to visit you and soak in everything your new home has to offer.
6. Help Is Here If You Need It
Getting older is an adventure. And like most adventures, it comes with a hefty dose of uncertainty. If you’re concerned about your health or what the future holds, know that Glenmeadow can offer additional support if you ever need it. For many older adults, simply living in close proximity to others offers significant peace of mind and alleviates worries about what might happen if there was ever an emergency. At Glenmeadow, you get only the support you need in a context that honors your independence — never anything more.
7. You’ll Maximize Your Independence
We all want to chart our own course. If you’re worried about maintaining your independence as you age, Glenmeadow is a great move. The community setting encourages you to remain active, which can help you stay healthy. With maintenance-free living, you’ll have fewer obligations, which can help you remain independent while still enjoying a well-maintained home. And because there is help available should you need it, you won’t have to lean on loved ones for care or support (unless you want to). This can help reduce family conflict, restore a sense of privacy and help you feel more confident about what your future holds.
