10 Feb Live your life to the fullest!
When we think of retirement living what we picture is rarely an idyllic place to live. What we usually picture is something which looks like a scene out of some horror movie or some thriller. An institutionalized facility where a lot of old people are kept in a small location, and are catered to by grumpy nurses. With this image firmly set in our minds, no wonder most of would think twice before we consider sending off our seniors to such places. Even if we do plan on sending someone to a senior home, the thought can make us extremely guilty. After all, our loved ones, whether they are our grandparents or our parents, spend their entire lives trying to look after us, and trying to make sure that we live our best life. After all that, it can seem like a bad way to repay them should we send them off to a facility which looks like a picture straight out of some horror movie. And yet sometimes, it can seem like there is no other option available to us. Caring for a senior is nothing short of a full time task, and we need to make sure that all their medical and their social needs are met. Fulfilling these can be tasking if we have our own lives to manage side by side, and thus senior living can seem to be the only option.
What most of us often overlook, however, is the fact that there is a stark difference between retirement homes and retirement living. Retirement homes are usually for the elderly who are way past their prime, and who require constant care and vigilance by medical personnel. This can therefore be a place totally unfit for seniors who have just retired, as they are still more or less able to live independently. The option for such seniors then, is retirement living. Retirement living is just as idyllic as it sounds – it is a way for seniors to really enjoy the fruit of all their labor throughout their lives. When living in retirement living, seniors have all their freedom, and can live their life doing the things that they love surrounded by likeminded individuals.
So then, when we picture over 50s living Brisbane what we need to picture is an idyllic lane of beautifully constructed houses, situated in a picturesque area of the town we live in, where people over 50 can live their life with no burdens. Over 50’s living ensures that the latter part of your life becomes the best part of your life, as you can do what you want, without ever having a worry. Living in normal housing can be quite a burden after we cross our 50’s as it can mean having to live alone as by that age most of us have children leading their own lives. This can mean a life of not just isolation, but worries that we would much rather do without, such as doing physically exerting daily chores, and maintaining a house that is now mostly empty.
Moving into over 50’s living can change all of that. Retirement living allows us to live in homes that are the perfect size for us, and we are even given the luxury of having staff take care of any task we wish. We can get all of this, while living in a separate, independent household of our own, and having the luxury to come and go as we please. In addition to this, we can throw all our fears of becoming isolated at old age out the window, as we can live surrounded by wonderful people who are our age, and we can have many opportunities for socialising, such as through game nights, movie nights, and so much more.
