One decision you may face during retirement is choosing whether or not to downsize to a senior living community. It’s certainly a life-changing decision that should be discussed with friends and family. But without actually visiting a community, it can be hard to decide whether or not this is the right choice for you and your lifestyle. At Bonaventure Senior Living, we encourage anyone interested in our communities to stop over for a visit! Here are a few reasons why:
1. Gives a sneak peak into daily life
Bonaventure Senior Living is far from your typical retirement home, and as soon as you step foot into any one of our communities, you’ll be able to see that. By visiting us, you can really get a clear idea of what your lifestyle could be like. Wake up in the morning and enjoy a home-cooked breakfast, then head out to the symphony with our on-site transportation. When you get back, spend time in our well-stocked library or head outside for a casual stroll on our sunny walking paths. We believe that you should live life on your terms, so at Bonaventure, you only do exactly what you want to do. It may be easier to make the move once you get a good idea of what your life could be like.
2. Talk to those who have been through it
If you really want to get an accurate depiction of what retirement living is like, talk to any of our residents! They will tell you anything you need to know about our community. Ask questions about the move, adjusting to senior living and more. Talking to someone who has already been through it can better prepare you for the process.
3. Ease your nerves
We understand that this life change can often be an intimidating one. But keep in mind that change isn’t always a bad thing. Actually going to visit a community can help address anything you might be nervous about. Feel free to talk to our staff or other members of the community – we’re here to answer any questions or concerns you may have to ease your worries and make you feel right at home.
4. Discover activities
There are always activities on the events calendar that you can take part in – even during your visit! From happy hour and pinochle to coffee and casino outings, there is never a shortage of things to do.
