5 Advantages of Choosing an Established Retirement Community

Retirement is an exciting new chapter of life to look forward to – a time to relax, travel, explore, indulge in old hobbies and new passions, and meet new friends. It’s also the perfect time to downsize and move into a community that offers independence and the ability to stay active and engaged. But how to choose a senior living community? Deciding on the right community can be overwhelming. You want to choose a place that offers quality amenities, is cost-effective, and provides the sense of community you’re looking for. We’ll explore the benefits of living in an active retirement community and highlight the unique advantages offered at Cumberland Crossing.

1. State-of-the-Art Amenities

An active retirement community offers more amenities than living alone or in a traditional senior home. At Cumberland Crossing by OceanView, residents have access to a fitness center, swimming pool, library, community gardens, and walking trails, to name a few. These amenities allow residents to maintain an active lifestyle and stay engaged without leaving their community. Having these amenities within arm’s reach means there’s no need to travel far, making it easier for residents to stay active and meet new people.

2. Fun, Exciting Activities

Retirement doesn’t mean retiring from having fun. Living in an active retirement community means that residents have access to a variety of activities and events happening daily. At Cumberland Crossing, there are always social events, group outings, and exercise classes to keep residents involved and excited. Enjoy endless opportunities to explore interests and hobbies while forming new friendships!

3. Maintenance-Free Living

Maintenance-free living is another major benefit of living in an active retirement community. Having staff available to handle maintenance requests for your home can give you peace of mind knowing that tasks such as interior maintenance, snow removal and lawn care are taken care of, not to mention housekeeping! This will allow you to focus on spending time doing what you love instead of worrying about the burden of homeownership and all the stress that comes with it.

4. Sense of Community

Retiring in an active living community offers a sense of involvement and meaning that’s difficult to find elsewhere. Cumberland Crossing allows residents the ability to create partnerships and friendships with other residents, forming a bond where they can help and support one another. It’s a place where residents are looking for the opportunity to truly connect with others who share similar interests and hobbies!

5. Trustworthy Brand

Another significant factor to consider is to be sure you are selecting a well-established and trustworthy community. A brand that has been serving seniors for many years will have a solid reputation and a wealth of knowledge to offer. Also, by selecting a senior living community with a good reputation, you can be assured that the services, care, and facilities they offer will be of high quality.
