Why Choose Lakeside at Waterman Village over a 55+ Community?

January 28, 2020

Many adults who are either in or nearing their long-awaited retirement days feel the same way you do right about now: You no longer want to spend time (or money) on household chores, maintenance and repairs. You would prefer spending your time with family and friends, continuing your career on your terms, relaxing, socializing, exercising or enjoying your hobbies and passions.

These are just a few of the many reasons people initially become interested in moving to senior living communities. Not only do these communities relieve residents of home maintenance responsibilities, but they also provide amenities that promote social interaction, fitness and opportunities for lifelong growth.

As you approach (or continue) your retirement, you have likely seen many types of living options available to active adults like you, including the 55+ community option. However, when you dive deeper, you’ll notice that choosing a 55+ community may not fulfill all of the wants and needs that are part of the future you envision for yourself. This is where communities like Waterman Village and the soon-to-be-built Lakeside at Waterman Village come into focus.

Waterman Village’s services provide peace of mind

One of the many benefits of choosing a retirement community like Lakeside at Waterman Village instead of a 55+ community is the multiple levels of healthcare services available on campus. Regardless of what the future holds, as a resident of Lakeside at Waterman Village, your needs will be met for years to come. This also means that if your health needs change in the future, you will enjoy the benefit of remaining in the community while avoiding the hassles of moving.

And unlike the limited services provided elsewhere, you’ll have a greater sense of security knowing that you’ll always have access to the services you want and need right on campus. 55+ communities can’t match that level of peace of mind.

An exciting future at Lakeside at Waterman Village

When comparing the differences to a 55+ community, Lakeside at Waterman Village comes out on top.

Other benefits of choosing this new independent living community include the luxurious, waterfront lifestyle complete with beautiful walking trails, lakeside sunset views, and highly sought-after amenities like a dog park, raised gardens, pickleball courts and delicious dining experiences.

Maybe you like to cook, just not all the time. If you want the evening off from cooking in your customized kitchen, imagine having the option of choosing a fine-dining experience, popping into the grab-and-go bistro for takeout or having a drink and a burger at a fun sports bar and grille. Lakeside at Waterman Village will suit whatever your palate prefers.

Residents at Lakeside at Waterman Village will also have full access to amenities found at Waterman Village, including an art studio, salon and spa, woodworking shop, fitness center and more. These amenities provide the opportunity to indulge in a new hobby, relax in the salon, reach your fitness goals or anything else you choose!
