The “When” of Senior Living

Jan 18, 2023

We’re asked a lot of questions regarding the proper timing for moving to a senior living community. In other words, how do you know when senior living is the right choice for you or a loved one?

It’s a question many adults begin to ask themselves as they age. And, if you’re reading this, it probably means you’re considering a potential move to a senior living community. Here are some of the main reasons Charlotte-area seniors choose to start fresh at Charter Senior Living of Charlotte.

  • Freedom from homeownership and maintenance – No more snow to shovel, grass to mow, or repairs to be done. Many find it easier to take long trips knowing their apartment home is taken care of while they’re gone.
  • An active social life – Make new friends, and choose from a full calendar of fun activities and excitement.
  • Safety and security – Over time, everyday features of your home, like stairs and bathtubs, can become safety hazards and obstacles. Senior living communities are designed to meet the physical needs of seniors and make the living environment safer and easier to navigate.
  • On-site amenities – Many senior living communities offer on-site dining options, salons, fitness centers, religious services, and more convenient amenities, with no travel required.
  • Preparing for the future – When additional health-related services are available, people choose senior living communities with the goal of aging in place. They rest easy knowing that more advanced levels of care, like Assisted Living and Memory Care, are available should they be needed.

Overall, it is about deciding what’s right for you. Find a community with the amenities, features and location that will keep you healthy and happy for years to come. Start by talking with a knowledgeable, experienced expert at Charter Senior Living of Charlotte today.
