Retirement Community Home

Choosing the right retirement community home is a high priority in your retirement living. Use the steps below to help aide you in the process.

Retirement Communities

Oftentimes as retirement approaches, many people choose to move into a retirement community as opposed to a private home. There are many things to consider when taking this route in your retirement.

The first step in shopping for a retirement community is taking a good look at what you want…much like a personal inventory. Characteristics such as age, health, marriage, financial status, religious preference, personal interests and hobbies will help define the type and location of retirement communities best suited to an individual’s or couple’s personalities and capabilities. Don’t worry…there are plenty of options when it comes to retirement communities…there is one just for you!

The fees and ongoing costs of a retirement community can vary widely. Some retirement care communities provide unlimited medical and nursing home care as part of the total package. Others include a certain amount or level of care, but charge more if you exceed the limits. Still others are "fee-for-service," with the charges depending on the care needed.

Many communities will require applicants to pass physical and mental checks. Applicants with cancer, strokes or dementia may have their applications rejected. Even facilities that accept people with unhealthy conditions do so on a space-available basis. Therefore, the best idea is to apply while you are still healthy. People who wait until their first health crisis to apply might not get in.

So-called "independent living” retirement communities are designed for seniors who are relatively independent, both physically and socially. The primary perk in this kind of retirement community is maintenance-free living; no house and lawn upkeep, linen service, trash pickup, transportation, and lunch served in a common dining center. These kinds of retirement community homes give seniors the freedom to truly enjoy the "Golden Years". Activities are another big part of independent living communities and often include crafts, exercise classes, live entertainment, movies, parties, outings and overnight bus trips, each adding a new dimension to the senior’s experience. Residents generally choose apartments from one of three floor plans.

When looking at a retirement community, find out if it is accredited. The Continuing Care Accreditation Commission is the only accrediting agency for continuing care retirement communities. Ask how medical care is provided. Is assisted living or nursing home care on site or on-call? Scrutinize the agreement and make sure you thoroughly understand it. Also, some retirement communities will let potential applicants spend a night in the retirement community home and take a meal. If you do this, take every opportunity to talk to as many other residents as possible to get a truly unvarnished view.
