Is Independent Senior Living for You?

With rapid advances in the field of medicine and the consequent increase in longevity, a growing number of seniors today are looking to make the most of their lives. After spending years by the clock, today’s elderly population wants to be actively engaged in life than ever before. Many of them are opting to live in independent senior living communities that enrich their lifestyle by meeting their specific requirements while allowing them to remain healthier and happier for longer and keeping them physically, mentally and socially engaged.

 

If you are not sure whether community living is your cup of tea, here are a few benefits that are unique to independent senior living communities.

 

Enjoy independence

 

 

At Columbia Pacific Communities, seniors enjoy a worry-free lifestyle where everyday chores are taken care of, and medical support is always accessible. With no cooking or cleaning to be done, seniors are free to devote their time and energy to their passions, hobbies and interests. Columbia Pacific Communities facilitates independent living and positive aging for seniors and gives assurance about their wellbeing to their children. Independent senior living communities take away the caregiver and care-recipient equation out of the parents-children relationship. Seniors can instead focus on enriching their relationships with their children, while children can forego their guilt and enjoy peace of mind.

 

Stay engaged

 

 

Columbia Pacific Communities has a holistic approach to seniors’ health. Activities and wellness programmes dedicated to improving the overall health of seniors are organised regularly. Seniors are nurtured in an enriching environment that encourages them to continue remaining socially, physically, emotionally, intellectually and mentally engaged. This allows them to remain active and healthy for a longer period when compared to seniors who live alone or depend on their families.

 

Feel connected

 

 

The essence of a community lies in feeling connected with others. Especially during times of crisis such as the COVID-19 outbreak. Senior citizens around the world are in the throes of fear due to their vulnerability to the disease. However, unlike seniors who live on their own in stand-alone homes or mixed family communities, where they have to fend for themselves or depend on others for their well-being, residents of Columbia Pacific Communities have a whole community standing guard. The residents have each other’s back and comfort each other during difficult times like these. Seniors thrive and flourish in communities that offer a sense of being socially connected. These relationships get enhanced overtime via positive interactions and shared interests.

 

Stay worry-free, stay healthy

 

 

Facilities such as housekeeping, laundry, healthy meals, doctor on call, nurse and ambulance on-premises, and a clubhouse with theatre, gym, library, swimming pool, etc. make independent senior living communities an attractive proposition to seniors looking to live independently. Additionally, holistic healthcare facilities such as physiotherapy/Ayurveda treatment, yoga classes and other wellness activities make life at Columbia Pacific Communities healthy, wholesome and peaceful. Regular social, cultural, spiritual and educational activities are organised for the residents in a safe environment, surrounded by likeminded people.

Whether it is staff members or community members, being part of a senior living community allows seniors to connect and socialise with individuals other than their family or friends. So, if you’re looking to embark on your second innings to discover new possibilities in life, independent senior living is the way to go.
