How would you spend your time if you could choose to spend it however you like? The residents of Edgemere Senior Living, a Lifecare Community, find themselves in the fortunate position of being able to elect how to spend much of their time. Some of them continue to run businesses, while others choose to volunteer. Some even continue to fulfill their artistic passions and have their work exhibited at local art events. The beauty of it is, they are able to choose.
A Lifecare Community like Edgemere offers residents maintenance-free living, including weekly housekeeping, five-star dining experiences and beautifully landscaped grounds. Health and wellness are an important part of the mix, too, with health services and wellness programs available on site. An allure of this type of community is that as residents age, changing health needs are met through award-winning health services – five-star rated from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and named among the top health centers in the country by U.S. News & World Report.
With so many positive attributes contributing to a carefree lifestyle, it is not surprising that communities like Edgemere attract seniors seeking to leave behind their “to-do” lists of home maintenance and repairs, lawn care, and housecleaning. The freedom from tasks combined with the assurance that professional health care is an easy phone call away – and on campus – is the perfect formula for many seniors. This refreshing flexibility allows them to remain independent and active but cuts out the daily tasks that used to consume time each day.
And then there are the social benefits of a senior living community, especially one as robust in its social programming as Edgemere. Trips to local art museums, on-site symphony performances, special festivals with live music, movie nights in the community’s theater, wine experiences, and happy hours – these are just a few of the lifestyle experiences that Edgemere residents have opportunities to enjoy. Socializing is not solely based on recreational endeavors. There are also opportunities to get involved and do good works through volunteerism. An Edgemere group called “The Knit Wits” for example, is on a mission to knit 100 warm caps for orphaned children in Ukraine this fall. And when the school year started in August, the entire community – residents and team members alike – banned together to collect school supplies, filled backpacks and delivered them to a local elementary school.
Edgemere Senior Living offers independent and assisted living, memory care, and skilled nursing care. If you think it is time to begin looking into retirement living and desire a lifestyle that allows you the luxury of time to pursue passions, continue to advance professional goals, or simply kick back and enjoy carefree time in the company of friends and family, consider contacting Edgemere.
