Lighten your load

Now’s your time to enjoy life, not mow grass. Independent living communities take over the responsibility for all your interior and exterior maintenance so you can take up a new hobby or spend time with your family and friends. In fact, the website for Feridean Commons in Westerville, which offers charming one- and two-bedroom villas, boasts that residents can “live an active lifestyle free from the cares of home ownership.” Doesn’t that sound like paradise?

Get social

The older you get, the easier it is to become socially isolated. However, when you live in close proximity to a whole community of people your own age, you find yourself striking up conversations, grabbing coffee and getting to know people all the time, and developing long-term friendships along the way. At Restoration Plaza, a Columbus senior apartment complex that only accepts tenants 62 and older, new friends are as close as the apartment next door. And if you’d also like a little canine or feline companionship, this complex, like many independent living housing communities, also gives residents the option to move their small pets in with them.

Time to pamper yourself

At many of these independent living communities, you may feel like you’re on vacation 365 days a year, thanks to the plethora of amenities and planned activities they offer you. Feridean Commons, for example, offers chef-prepared meals, a juice and coffee bar, a health and wellness clinic, a movie theater, and for seniors who love to garden, there’s even a greenhouse. Even senior apartments like Restoration Plaza have amenities like fitness centers.

A good mix of freedom and security

While this type of housing provides you with complete independence, safety is just as paramount. At Restoration Plaza, if you should suffer an injury or illness, just use the emergency call system and help will be on its way. Many communities, like Feridean Commons, also feature 24-hour security on their grounds.
