What to Expect From a Luxury Senior Living Community

What Is Luxury Senior Living?

What does luxury mean to you? An evening out on the town, eating gourmet food at a ritzy restaurant, riding in expensive foreign cars or taking a trip to an exotic locale? When it comes to retirement living, luxury means a little bit more than opulent accommodations and premium experiences. When you consider the different care options, pricing structures, services and amenities that senior living communities offer, choosing the right place isn’t quite as simple as picking the shiniest exterior. Read on to discover a few of the features that set luxury senior living communities apart.

Luxury Means More Than Money

You’re probably thinking that a luxury senior living community is simply the most expensive option, but this isn’t always true. One major factor that determines the cost is contract duration. Put simply, communities that make big promises in exchange for a lifelong buy-in are usually the most expensive.

If that doesn’t sound good to you, you have an option that won’t require you to divest a huge chunk of property and investments – rental-based retirement communities. Not only will you retain maximum financial flexibility, but you can still receive care for life supported by thoughtful services and premium amenities.

Bear in mind that rental communities may still require a community fee – but this will still be significantly smaller than an entrance fee. No matter what contract you choose, a truly luxurious retirement community is all about making your life easier at every turn – that often includes at-request transportation, concierge services and other high-touch offerings.

The most luxurious communities seek to fine-tune every aspect of their living experience. Most offer residences that are more similar to deluxe high-rise apartments than the typical image of a retirement community – even those that are based solely around assisted living support. In dining, such communities focus on offering diverse, freshly cooked meal options that would fit on a fine dining menu. And if you like being pampered, don’t be surprised if you find an on-site spa, beauty salon and climate-controlled indoor pools.

What’s in It for You?

Even the wealthiest person should have an eye for good value – and as a shrewd older adult who has invested and saved well, you’re likely wondering why you should spend your hard-earned cash on a high-end senior living community. So why choose a luxury retirement community over the alternatives? Here are a few good reasons.

  • You’ll get the best in every respect. Think of it. You’ve earned the best, so you should enjoy the best! When you’re deciding where you’re going to live – whether that’s buying a house or renting an apartment – you shouldn’t have to sacrifice the creature comforts and everyday conveniences you really want.
  • You get more for your money. Remember, you’re not just paying for the space you live in – you’re buying into an incredible lifestyle that comes complete with unlimited access to a lot of top-flight services and amenities. If you were to put together your own home gym or spa and pay to staff them with trainers or wellness experts every single day, you’d have to pay a lot more money!
  • You’re securing access to care. At many senior living communities, you’ll find higher levels of care – like assisted living, memory care and skilled nursing care. But where will you find the most variety and highest quality? It’s not a universal rule – but typically, luxury communities exceed their common counterparts in this measure.

Regardless of your current health needs, a top-quality senior living experience has a lot to offer for the value conscious. After all, with consistent expenses like home maintenance and upkeep along with the potential costs of hiring a home care professional, the price of staying in your current home can add up quickly. A luxury senior living community isn’t just about living a premium lifestyle – it can actually do a lot to help you maintain your quality of life.
