Services for seniors rochester ny

There’s a reason why America’s senior living facilities have an 86% occupancy rate. For retirees, these senior living communities offer an independent, active lifestyle that lets them spend their retirements in leisure and enjoyment.

So if you’re on the fence about moving out of your house and into a senior community, don’t worry — there are tons of unexpected advantages and benefits you get when you spend your retirement living in a senior home or community. Here are just three of the best:

No more maintenance or home upkeep

Maintaining a home can become too much work, especially if you aren’t as mobile as you used to be. That’s why many people your age choose to live in a private apartment in an independent senior living community — these communities and their staff will take care of all the maintenance work and repairs for you, at no extra charge to your rent.

An exciting, active social life

Today’s senior communities place an emphasis on encouraging their residents to get to know one another and build friendships that last. There are a slew of activities and events to help break the ice with your neighbors, and you’ll love having people your own age right at your doorstep.

Assistance when you need it

Did you know that about 55% of American seniors have at least one mental or physical disability? No matter what your needs are, you can feel assured that you will find the assistance you require when you move into a senior living community. Staff are always helpful, and can provide assistance with cooking, cleaning and much more.
