Why you should move into a retirement home

London has a selection of very high-quality retirement homes that instantly make your life better, if you are living in a home or neighbourhood that no longer suits you. Here’s a look at what you’re missing out on:

Lots of friendly fun

This is the best kept secret of London’s independent living retirement homes. You may think you are paying for a beautiful suite, or someone to wash your bedding, and you may even need some care. Those are there, but the biggest benefit of life in a retirement home is that there are friends just down the hall, outside the door, and around every corner. It’s often very pleasant to simply pass your day in the community. However, there's so much to do together! Communities listed above offer a full slate of daily activities. You can pick and choose things you want (or don’t want) to take part in, and there’s always a group involved. You can be as social as you want to be. You're never wondering what there is to do.

Personal passions and interests 

Pass the housework and cooking to someone else, and open up more time for yourself. What do you do with that? London retirement homes, like those listed above, offer many internal clubs or groups, and because the people are so vibrant, these are a lot of fun. After moving, some people take up painting. Others join the poetry club. There's also pickle ball, bocce, and dozens of other group activities to take part in.

Take back full control of your life and your time. When you live on your own you have to cut the grass, tend the garden, landscape, shovel snow, etc. You may not even be aware of all the pesky annoyances that take up your time. It’s not just that those are a thing of the past. When you move, you move into something special: a community of people all your own age, who’ve been through many of the same things, and with whom you have so much in common. You’ll be surprised to find out that that hilarious jokester across the table from you actually lived only three streets over from you. You’ll be amazed at how many good people you meet and live in the same building with. And the fact is that you will fill your day with many more moments of contentment and simple joy.

A caring environment

Your family will feel assured, knowing that there are always people around, including professional nurses and care staff. They may not tell you this (or they might) but family always worries about seniors on their own. Those worries evaporate when you move into a retirement community. Many communities also offer assistance, right in the same building, so if your care needs change, you won’t need to move. View the select list of London retirement homes with assisted living
