Now more than ever, you have a range of choices for retirement living. In fact, choosing from all the communities and options available can be dizzying or even overwhelming for individuals and families. In particular, considering the benefits of choosing a full-service retirement community over other, standalone options, can be especially confusing.
As a full-service retirement community, Veranda of Pensacola understands your confusion and concerns. After all, this is a monumental decision that will impact you for the foreseeable future!
Choosing a full-service retirement community has never been easier
Our team speaks to individuals like you and meets with families like yours every day. We hear your questions and concerns, and are always happy to answer your questions and allay your concerns. To help you make the best decision for yourself or your family, here are some of the most common benefits of choosing a full-service retirement community over other options:
Stay in the same place
Here at Veranda of Pensacola, we offer independent living and assisted living options in our retirement community. What does that mean exactly? It means that you can spend more time in one community, rather than have to constantly move to another community as your needs (medical, social, etcetera) change.
Our independent living lifestyle offers the flexibility, freedom, and stability you need, while our assisted living options provide four levels of care to ensure you have exactly what you need to stay safe, happy, and independent.
Staying in one community for a longer period of time also means it’s easier to form and maintain long-lasting friendships -- with staff and your neighbors! There’s also simply a sense of calm that comes with knowing you’re “home” for a long time.
Easier budgeting and planning
Balancing a budget is always a chore, but it can be especially frustrating as we get older. Full-service retirement communities, as noted above, include multiple levels of care -- this can assist you with mid- to long-term budgeting and preparation of your finances.
But in the short- to long-term, living in a full-service retirement community means paying one bill per month instead of potentially dozens of bills for things like rent/mortgage, utilities, cable, homeowner’s insurance, groceries, and so much more.
Just about everything is included when you move into a full-service retirement community like Veranda of Pensacola. This adds to your sense of calm and contentment, and just makes life easier!
Amenities and activities on-site
Besides helping to ease your pocketbook and make budgeting easier, an all-inclusive lifestyle is extremely desirable for residents of a full-service retirement community like Veranda of Pensacola.
What exactly does an all-inclusive lifestyle mean? As noted above, it means most of your bills -- rent, utilities, insurance -- are wrapped into a single payment. But it also means that many of your favorite hobbies are all on-site (and included in your living!). Constantly ordering books from Amazon? Take some books out of our libraries instead. Love heading to the movies? Our on-site theater awaits you!
And let’s not forget meals! Not only are your meals included when you move into a full-service retirement community, they’re restaurant-quality meals! Our menu features multiple options per day, flexible options for special diets, and cuisines from across the country (and even the globe). Foodies love life at Veranda of Pensacola - there are always new meals to try along with your old favorites. Most importantly, it’s all included in your cost of living.
