The Benefits of the Life Care Lifestyle

Feb 4, 2021

What sort of lifestyle are you looking for as you age? What goals do you want to accomplish? What do you want to experience? That answer can be many different things to different people. Which is why many of today’s seniors are choosing the benefits of a Life Care lifestyle to help them thrive now and in the future.

“A Life Care Community like Canterbury Woods Williamsville helps older adults upsize their lifestyle while downsizing their responsibilities,” says Lynda Marino, Marketing Director for Canterbury Woods Williamsville. “We’ve also discovered that during a pandemic like COVID-19 it also provides a healthy, safe home for seniors that minimizes their exposure to the virus as much as possible.”

Lynda says that a Life Care Community is excellent for today’s seniors because it provides a plan for now and the future. “The way a Life Care Community is structured protects residents from skyrocketing long-term care cost, which allows them to preserve their assets and provides peace of mind for them and their loved ones.”

While there are many different types of senior living communities available, today’s older adults are choosing Life Care Communities for a lifestyle that allows them to thrive. Here’s why.

Benefit #1: No more chores or maintenance.
Many of today’s seniors are looking forward to their golden years. Finally, they have the time to do the things they’ve been wanting to do but haven’t been able to due to work and family obligations. But if you’re living on your own, you still have to deal with a lot of chores and tasks: cleaning, cooking, landscaping, home repairs and maintenance … the list goes on and on. Moving into a Life Care Community allows you to say goodbye to those tasks and “hello” to all the free time in the world. Canterbury Woods Williamsville is a true, all-inclusive, maintenance-free lifestyle that includes meals, house cleaning and even linen service. You’ll never have to shovel the walk again or deal with leaf pickup in the fall. Instead, your spare time is yours to learn a new hobby, make new friends or do whatever else you’ve been dreaming about.

Benefit #2: An instant circle of friends.

2020 showed us that social connection is incredibly important, no matter how old we are. As we age, it can be difficult to remain connected to friends and family due to distance, deaths or other reasons. Which is why moving to a community like Canterbury Woods Williamsville is so beneficial – you’ll find yourself instantly surrounded by a group of like-minded people who are eager and excited to make new friends, too. A healthy social calendar with safe events and activities make it easy to meet new people and start forming those friendships that can last a lifetime.

Benefit #3: A focus on healthy aging.

Getting older doesn’t mean you have to grow “old.” We all know those older adults who act decades younger than their true age (as well as the reverse). A Life Care Community focuses on providing a lifestyle that allows seniors to age well and stay healthy throughout the years. For example, at Canterbury Woods Williamsville, we have an on-site fitness center with a wide variety of classes and equipment so seniors can take charge of their physical activity. Dining is also a treat, with nutritionally balanced meals that are delicious, varied and expertly prepared. There are also many opportunities to keep minds sharp through classes, activities, events and clubs.

Benefit #4: A sense of safety and security.

A lot of seniors (and their adult children) worry about an older person living on their own. What happens if there’s a break-in? What happens if he or she has an emergency, or falls down the stairs, and can’t get to a place to call for help? A Life Care Community provides peace of mind for all these scenarios and more. With security staff available around-the-clock, and team members on-shift 24/7, assistance or help is never more than a few moments away. The community is also designed with seniors’ needs in mind, with secure entrances, safety designs like emergency alarm systems and more. Not only does this provide comfort as a person ages, but it also means that you can head off on your adventures now without having to worry about a house-sitter, because your home will be well looked-after during your journey.

Benefit #5: Freedom and choice.

Perhaps the best benefit of all – the one that truly opens doors and allows residents to thrive – is the freedom and choice that a Life Care Community provides. It’s a lifestyle that, simply put, revolves around you. You get to choose what you want to do every day, and you don’t have to worry about the to-dos because they’re all taken care of for you. The world is your oyster because no one is saying you have to do this or that. Instead, the choice is yours. No matter what it is you want to do, you can make it happen, and the Life Care team members will help you get there. You’ll also have the peace of mind that, no matter how your health needs may change in the future, that freedom and choice won’t disappear. You’ll always receive a fulfilling lifestyle while also getting the caring, dignified assistance you require to make that happen. And that benefit is priceless.

  Are you at risk for heart disease? If you are a woman over 55 or a man over 45, you could be. If your father or brother had heart disease before age 55, or your mother or sister had heart disease before age 65, your risk could be higher. We’re giving you a little tough love here, because heart disease is responsible for one in every four deaths in the United States.
