How Independent Living Promotes Active Lifestyles

Would you grow older if you didn’t have to? Interesting question, isn’t it? There are so many things we learn through age that are vital to how we live and look at life. And, yet, maintaining that active vigor of youth sure is an enticing thought. You know what? Why choose? There is some truth in the old maxim, “you’re only as old as you feel.” Feeling young? Get yourself to an active senior community and enjoy the best of both worlds (there’s that wisdom of age)! 

Senior living communities offer a myriad of amenities and services tailored to support your independent living lifestyle. Stay active, let your inner social butterfly flutter and pursue those passions that may have slipped away while you were living for your job. 

You’re retired. Your only job now is living how you want. 

 Active senior living refers to a lifestyle that focuses on helping you maintain that physical, mental and emotional vitality that makes life so fun. Modern independent living communities recognize that most of us feel younger than our physical age, and they cater to the needs and desires of active older adults like yourself. 

Life-Enhancing Amenities

Senior living communities are designed to be playgrounds for the senior mind, body and spirit. They offer a wide array of amenities to make you smile, to engage you on a higher level, to make every day a new and welcomed adventure. 

Like to stay in shape? You’ll find fitness centers, swimming pools, walking trails, golf courses and group exercise classes. Or maybe even group classes teaching yoga, tai chi or water aerobics. Boom! 

Fancy yourself a bit of a foodie? Dining experiences in communities like ours defy everything you think you know about senior living dining. Let your taste buds run wild, knowing that every scrumptious bite and each perfect portion is not just delicious but also designed for maximum health benefits. You’ll find everything from formal dining to casual cafes and bistros, allowing you to choose the ambience and flavors to suit your mood. And, of course, nothing feeds a blossoming friendship like a great meal.  

Social Connections

Independent living communities are just that; places where you are a part of something bigger than yourself. A home where you’re surrounded by friends who look forward to getting time on your active social calendar and by supportive staff members who truly enjoy ensuring you have everything you need to live the life you want. 

The natural setting for social interaction and community engagement these communities provide actually enhances your health and wellness. Studies show that socialization is one of the most effective ways in which seniors can improve their physical and mental health. Not only does having a larger social network reduce the risks of dementia, but it also encourages healthy behaviors and exercise. After all, it’s much easier to stay fit when you’re having so much fun you don’t focus on the “work” part of the workout.

Oh! And don’t forget about all the regularly scheduled social events, outings and educational programs. And, of course, communities like ours also have built-in common areas like libraries, game rooms and art studios, created specifically to provide perfect gathering spaces for intellectual stimulation and personal expression. Pretty sneaky, huh?

Time for Hobbies and Pursuits

One of the significant advantages of independent living communities is the maintenance-free lifestyle they offer. The burden of home maintenance tasks, such as yard work, repairs and household chores, is lifted from the shoulders of active seniors who want to make the most of their retirement experience. With fewer responsibilities and worries, older adults have more time to focus on their hobbies, interests and personal growth.

Love gardening? Come enjoy the zen of a communal garden. Want to explore painting or writing or some other new skill? There’s a program for that. In fact, Trillium Woods offers a wide variety of lifelong learning opportunities including guest speakers, resident-run interest groups, fitness classes and much more.

Are you the active sort? This is where we truly shine. Our beautiful campus includes walking paths, bike trails and so many opportunities to have fun while staying active, fit and motivated. And, of course, you get all this with the added peace of mind that comes with maintenance-free living. Win-win.
