The Top 10 Independent Living Amenities You Should Find in a Life Plan Community

There’s a reason people look forward to retirement. It’s an opportunity to explore new hobbies, rekindle old passions, and regain a zest for life. Your independence is key. And sometimes, that can mean moving to an independent living community like St. Joseph of the Pines.

When all the worries and stress associated with the tasks of daily living are handled for you, you have more time to spend taking advantage of all the on-site amenities. That’s why it’s important when you start your search to find the best fit for your interests and overall wellness.

Some of the amenities you’ll want to make sure your independent living community offers include:

  1. Casual and fine dining rooms along with cafes and pubs to serve everyone
  2. Full-service bars for social interaction and relaxing
  3. On-site chapels to reconnect with your faith or continue practicing your beliefs
  4. Libraries to encourage education and mental stimulation
  5. Hair salons, a bank, and a virtual convenience store so you never have to go far to find what you need
  6. Indoor pool, tennis court, fitness center or walking paths to continue your fitness journey
  7. Community gardens and a greenhouse to encourage time spent outdoors
  8. Close proximity to golf courses, museums, shopping malls or restaurants
  9. Academic seminars to encourage lifelong learning
  10. Ideal weather year-round to enjoy indoor and outdoor living

Our independent living communities are conveniently located in beautiful North Carolina. Our goal is to offer older adults the chance to pursue a low maintenance lifestyle that leaves plenty of room to build upon the seven dimensions of wellness.

Independent Living That Promotes the Seven Dimensions of Wellness

One of the best ways to ensure you’ve made the right choice when it comes to an independent living community is to choose one that promotes the seven dimensions of wellness. It is one thing to promote nutrition and exercise, but it’s another thing to offer amenities that specifically target your mental, social, emotional and physical wellbeing.

These seven dimensions of wellness include:

  • Emotional Wellness
  • Environmental Wellness
  • Intellectual Wellness
  • Occupational Wellness
  • Physical Wellness
  • Social Wellness
  • Spiritual Wellness

Each of these seven dimensions overlaps in a way that contributes to your overall quality of life. If you find a senior living community that encourages you to pursue every aspect of your health, you will know you found home.
