“Aging in Place” at Springshire

Let us take a moment to talk about something we all like to sweep under the rug – planning for retirement. Today you’re young and healthy, but what will happen in the next 5 years? 10 years? What are your plans? Or, maybe the better question for most is, have you even thought about your retirement plans?

When thinking about the years after retirement, seniors should seek a plan that allows them to “age in place.” “Aging in place” means being able to live in the home of your choice for as long as you are able. This includes having access to any service you may require as your needs change. The SpringShire community is designed to allow residents to “age in place.”

As an active, maintenance-free community, SpringShire’s goal is for each resident to enjoy the many amenities and advantages they offer. Vibrant activities, planned outings, fitness programs, and healthy dining options are in place to encourage healthy and active lifestyles. But, should something change, our health care services are unsurpassed.

While SpringShire residents are living independently, a Health Clinic will be conveniently located in the community. Primary Care doctors and nurses will be available for appointments, minor injuries and illnesses, lab testing and more. SpringShire’s transportation team will also provide personal drivers’ services to and from appointments should a resident require a specialist or off-site care.

Further ensuring that residents can “age in place”, SpringShire will provide licensed Assisted Living and Skilled Nursing Care in private accommodations. This will allow patients to remain in the community while receiving the care they need. In addition, there will be Occupational Therapy, Speech Therapy and Physical Therapy services provided on-site.

Along with encouraging active and healthy lifestyles, SpringShire will provide the reassurance that should a resident’s health condition change they will be able to receive optimal care without being separated from their spouse, neighbors and friends. Isolation from loved ones can be harmful to seniors’ health. By ensuring that residents can remain in the community and receive care, SpringShire’s goal is that each resident will have a higher quality of life, both physically and mentally.

Planning for the future now will ensure that you have the choice of where you want to spend your years after retirement. When seniors plan for their futures early, while they are healthy and active, they are able to make their own decisions based on their likes and dislikes and families are not left with the burden of making those decisions.

“Aging in place” at SpringShire is also exciting because residents have the unique opportunity to choose their perfect home and location on the property.
