What comes to mind when you think of ‘luxury’? It might be an elegant countryside villa, or a day spent out on the golf links. You may think of opulent parties, expensive European cars or designer clothing. But when it comes to senior living, luxury is far from superficial — it affects everything, including care, comfort, amenities and more — and choosing the right place isn’t quite as simple as you might think. In this post, we’ll discuss what constitutes a ‘luxury senior living community,’ along with a few things to keep in mind as you look for a place in the Dallas, Texas, area.
Defining ‘Luxury Senior Living’
There are a number of things that separate luxury senior living communities from their more common counterparts. For example, many high-end retirement communities offer an elevated level of involvement from team members. The finest Dallas retirement communities may even have a personal concierge service, with town cars whisking you to and from your preferred destinations.
They also place a premium on dining and accommodations — for example, luxury assisted living apartments will usually feel more like a custom home or ritzy hotel than an institutional setting, and the food they serve would suit a fine dining restaurant. Of course, you’ll also want to look for the premium amenities you love, like an on-site salon, private dining rooms or spa services.
Beyond a laundry list of features and amenities, true luxury senior living is all about cultivating an experience of sophistication. From the garden grounds to common areas and private residences, every element should be well-crafted, thoughtfully designed and revolve around your needs. Luxury in senior living means a maintenance-free lifestyle that gives you everything you could want or need, without compromise. Ideally, life at a luxury senior living community should feel like an extended vacation.
The Value of True Luxury
If you’ve already started to research retirement communities in Dallas, you know that senior living can carry a significant price tag. So why choose a luxury community? Because where you choose to live represents an impactful investment in your future. Many high-end senior living communities are known to offer a variety of flexible living options that give you more freedom of choice and the comfort of knowing that your money is well spent.
Another key benefit at the best luxury senior living communities is Life Care. After paying your one-time entrance fee, Life Care allows you to enjoy all the premium amenities, perks and benefits of independent living while giving you assured access to higher levels of care, should the need arise.
Regardless of your current situation, you’ll likely discover significant value in a luxury senior living community. The costs of staying in your home can add up quickly — and so can the cost of choosing a community that doesn’t offer the lifestyle you want or excellent care available when and where you need it. Also consider the opportunity cost of making another move if you need more care, or the time you spend on home maintenance.
