Bethesda residents frequently tell us they wished they’d moved into a Bethesda Independent Living community sooner.  Either the stress of home maintenance had become too much, or relying on family members to help with cooking and cleaning had become too burdensome.  Bethesda residents find that moving to a senior community offers new friends and new found freedoms.

4 Reasons Why it’s Better to Move to a Senior Community Now Rather Than Later

1. You make the decision

Often, older adults will share they prefer to “wait until something happens” before deciding on a senior community. Unfortunately, by doing this, you risk being forced to make a quick decision without having done your research.  So the earlier you start your search, the more you decide what your priorities are in choosing your new home!

2. Maintain health and wellness

By moving into a Bethesda independent living community, you no longer having to worry about shoveling snow or cleaning hard-to-reach areas. Exercise classes and on-site therapy ensures healthy bones and muscles.  Restaurant-style dining means delicious balanced meals.  Social gatherings and out trips provides you with the mental well-being you can’t enjoy if you are isolated at home.

3. Renew relationships with family

Often, our adult children become the caregiver when trying to keep us at home and the relationship gets strained.  But now, when your daughter visits, she gets to relax and enjoy your company instead of worrying about cleaning your home or making sure you’re are eating well! By living at a Bethesda independent living community, your children can have peace of mind that your needs are met, while also enjoying the amenities of the community with you!

4. We handle the move

The thought of moving from a home you’ve lived in for decades can be daunting, but Bethesda’s “Moving with Ease” program manages the process with every step. Our team can design a floor plan that allows you to bring your important possessions, as well as carefully packing and unpacking your belongings on move-in day.  You will walk into your new apartment without having to worry about a thing!  Instead of stressing about the logistics of moving, you can look forward to living your best life in your new home!
