USA – Past senior preferences included the purchase of a new “home away from home” in which recent retirees planned to spend their golden years – many of them becoming snow birds, after years of living in unfavorable climates. However, such plans have proven, time and again, to be somewhat idealistic, and even, sadly, unrealistic, as seniors began to deal with the prospect of being unable to form a new social circle in their new town, or even suffer from unbearable loneliness, in the event they are widowed during the later stages of their life.
It is likely that these notions have led to the emergence of the latest trends in senior living, which indicate that a community setting is now more favorable than choosing to start over, on one’s own, in a completely unknown environment.
Bellewood A LifeMinded™ Residence’s media spokesperson was eager to comment on this recent shift in senior living preferences, saying that “Seniors have heard from family and friends just how isolating relocating at an older age can be. In addition to the shock associated with uprooting, many are startled by the significant costs of paying for what is often a cross-country move, utilities, furnishings, and, sometimes, even a new mortgage.”
“A retirement community is the greatest example of the fact that retiring from one’s work does not mean that one must retire from living life on one’s own terms. The fact that this choice of residence is quickly gaining traction among seniors and retirees denotes a general change of attitude about how one’s quality of life should not be affected by age.”
