Are you at that stage in life where retirement is fast approaching or already upon you? Still living in a big home even though the kids have grown and flown? Maybe you’re dreaming about a more carefree life that gives you the freedom to do the things you like. It’s time to consider making a move to a 55-and-over independent living community.
Apartment Homes Designed with you in Mind
Instead of downsizing, think of your move as rightsizing for your second act in life. “Seniors need affordable housing and a well-appointed living space designed to enhance their active lifestyles, support their needs, and maximize quality of life,” says Erica McFarland, area manager for the new Lakeview Pointe Apartment Community in Rowlett, Texas. Still under construction, the senior independent living community will begin welcoming residents age 55-plus who enjoy active, independent lifestyles in December 2020.
All design details are implemented to give residents beautiful, serene living spaces as well as encourage a vibrant, active social life. Research shows that isolation is the single biggest contributing factor for depression in older adults. Whether you’re single or married, once the kids move out and your social circle diminishes, loneliness can begin to affect physical and mental health. Living in an apartment community with similarly aged people gives residents an instant network of welcoming, enthusiastic neighbors and new friends.
You Won’t have to be Alone, Unless you want to Be
“At Lakeview Pointe, we’ll offer a full schedule featuring a variety of activities, specifically programmed to encourage friendships with people who share the same interests and hobbies,” says Erica. The schedule is designed to enlighten and enrich senior lives and includes things like cooking, nutrition, and fitness classes, as well as card games, bingo, painting, crafts, and local outings. She explained that the community’s “resident services” staff will coordinate all onsite activities as well as provide information and resources for events and attraction off the property.
Other community facilities open to all residents and their guests, include:
- Expansive, well-appointed clubhouse
- Activity center
- Computer center with high-speed Wifi
- Fitness center
- Gorgeous swimming pool and spa
- Beautifully manicured grounds
- Shuttle service to shopping, entertainment, and grocery stores
And don’t worry, this senior community is furry family member friendly! Residents can take their dogs to the dog park to run and play with other doggy friends.
Carefree Living with People who Care
“Seniors will fall in love at first sight with this brand-new construction,” Erica predicts. “Future residents can choose from a variety of spacious one-bedroom and two-bedroom open floorplans.” Those who enjoy cooking and entertaining will have solid granite countertops in their home’s fully equipped kitchen with designer cabinetry. That’s right, all appliances in a sleek black finish are included: stove, oven, microwave, and refrigerator. And, unlike many senior living communities, Lakeview Pointe Apartment Community homes are all equipped with a washer and dryer.
With home ownership, the maintenance and repairs never end, and they get costly. That’s why senior independent living communities have become so popular with the 55-and-older set because there are no maintenance and repair costs. This frees up more time and money so residents can do more of what they love, like traveling or personalizing their living spaces.
Many apartment communities do not allow residents to paint walls, hang artwork, or install curtain rods and drapes. Not so with the Lakeview Pointe Independent Living Community. Want to paint your bedroom spicy salsa red? Go ahead! Want to hang that gallery-sized art piece by that young artist you met in college? No problem because you have soaring nine-foot ceilings to enhance its beauty. “Residents are free to put their personal touch on their living spaces because that’s what it’s all about — seniors shaping this next phase of life to their expectations,” says Erica.
Luxury Living at its Most Affordable
Seniors age 55 and over have a fantastic opportunity to make the second act of their life the best act, but it’s crucial to choose an active adult community that fully meets their needs. And affordability ranks at the top when it comes to enjoying all possibilities life has to offer.
“We know seniors live with fixed incomes and big dreams. At Lakeview Pointe Apartment Community for independent seniors, residents have access to affordable housing along with the safety and security of a close-knit community,” Erica explains. Seniors deserve to enjoy a vibrant social life, complete with adventure, fun, and travel.
Live a more joyful, purposeful life in a thriving tight-knit community where you can stay active and social on your own terms.
