Couples Find Comfort Together in Today’s Senior Living Communities
Growing old together is the ultimate goal for many couples. In addition to the joy that comes from sharing life with someone you love, there are also numerous health and wellness benefits derived from being in a healthy relationship, such as having a bolstered immune system, feeling less pain, and living longer. With that in mind, The Seneca is designed to accommodate couples who want to stay together. In fact, it has been welcoming couples since it first opened its doors.
For couples, the decision to move into a senior living community is often driven by one of a few common factors. First is a desire to downsize, taking the opportunity to embark on a new chapter in life unencumbered by household chores, maintenance, and the day-to-day upkeep that a house requires. Many want a more convenient way to stay active and enjoy life, and the on-site amenities and activities of a senior community make it a perfect fit.
In some instances, however, health challenges and differing care needs can complicate matters—particularly when one partner isn’t able to care for the other. For these couples, the move is a welcome relief, creating peace of mind, restoring a level of independence, and even easing the strain that can result when loved ones are in a caregiver-patient relationship.
After the move, The Seneca offers a host of enriching programs and activities that couples can enjoy together—or apart, for those who prefer a bit of space to pursue their own interests. The social aspects of community life can be especially beneficial for couples with differing interests, giving them the ability to spend quality time with one another while satisfying their own individual passions as well.
