Why Moving to a CCRC Benefits Your Children

Independent Living | 10/10/18


There are many reasons to move to a continuing care retirement community (CCRC). Maybe you’re ready to downsize your home and eliminate the daily tasks required to maintain it. Or maybe you’re looking for a more engaging social life with people your age. But did you ever stop to think about how moving to a CCRC also benefits your children?

Taking the leap to move to a continuing care community reaps positive results for entire families. We’re sure of this when we hear our residents say, “I wish I’d made the move sooner,” and their loved ones probably agree.

CCRCs: What’s in it for Your Family?

Of course, you care about your family and want them to be happy with whatever decision you make. You don’t want to be a burden or cause any unnecessary stress. All the more reason to understand how moving to a CCRC can be in the best interest of all.

Peace of mind knowing your wellness is top priority.

When you move to a life plan community like Stonebridge at Montgomery, you’re moving to a place where your whole-person wellness is taken into consideration. We’re not just talking about your physical health. We’re also talking about your social, emotional, intellectual, vocational, mental, and environmental health.

Your loved ones can rest assured that your well being is our top priority. through Our LivWell program, an award-winning senior wellness program, provides every opportunity to allow residents to never stop learning or growing, as we know this leads to the best sense of self.

Health resources and experienced medical staff on-site

Many children worry about their parents living alone. If something were to happen – like a fall or health problem – what would you do? At Stonebridge, attentive staff members and medical services are only steps away, so this burden is lifted from their shoulders.

The beauty of our continuum of care is that if/when you need more help, it’s available right in your neighborhood. No need to move somewhere new. We offer:

  • Personalized care
  • 24/7 nurses available
  • Medication management
  • Access to a full-service Health & Wellness Clinic

Fewer trips to take care of daily home maintenance and chores 

Are your children stopping by often to help with home maintenance tasks you can no longer do, like mowing your lawn or shoveling snow? Continuing care retirement communities take care of maintenance so you no longer have to worry about such tasks and that means your loved ones don’t have to worry about them, either.

We encourage family and friends to visit residents – and vice versa – as often as they’d like, but now you can enjoy that quality time together instead of working on mundane chores. Do something fun together and make more happy memories. You both deserve it.
