Years ago, seniors moved into retirement communities because they needed to. They needed extra assistance and could not live alone any longer. It was often the last resort. My, how things have changed!
Retirement communities like Preston Pointe are a happy choice for seniors seeking to enhance their life. The residents in our Independent Living apartments could live at home but choose Preston Pointe for a variety of reasons such as the following.
Socialization: Many seniors find getting together with friends more difficult as they age. At a retirement community, friends are literally just steps away from your front door. Bridge friends, dinner companions, and walking buddies are always available. Not only are there opportunities to meet new friends, but life at Preston Pointe offers the ability to entertain old friends as well. Instead of having to clean your home, weed your garden, and prepare a meal, our staff takes care of everything so you can entertain friends and family, or even a larger group, in one of our well appointed common rooms.
Peace of Mind: You may never need emergency care, but it’s good to know that it’s available should you need it. With a 24/7 staff on hand, we can respond quickly in an emergency, administering aid or calling 911.
Health Benefits: There is a case to be made for living with supportive services which allow seniors to live more independently, longer. No more skipping meals because it’s difficult to cook for one; no physical issues resulting from moving the television closer; no more forgetting to take the correct medicine at the right time. With supportive services, you are free to focus on what is most important – friends, family, and fun.
Affordability: Once you add up the cost of living at home and paying your own utilities, auto insurance, transportation expenses, home maintenance, property taxes, mortgage, etc., and compare it to our monthly fee, you’ll see the value in living at Preston Pointe.
Moving into a new home after years in one place can be daunting, but our staff will be there to help with the transition. We believe that within a matter of days, you’ll be happily hanging the “Home Sweet Home” sign on your front door.
