Finding the Right Home for Retirement Living

When making post-retirement plans, many people feel overwhelmed – and making these plans will only become harder as you get older. Your current home is full of memories and, let’s be honest, a little junk too, which makes the thought of moving even more daunting. But, does the home you currently live in meet your needs? If it does now, will it still meet your needs in the next 5 or 10 years? Will your home suit your retirement living plans?

When answering the question, “What do I want in a home for retirement living?” consider the following features: 


Location means more than just the city you will call home. It includes whether you prefer an urban or rural setting and if you are close to the services and healthcare you may require as you age. Is being close to loved ones important to you? How about being close to shops and entertainment? These are all things to consider when thinking about a specific location.

The SpringShire community will be set among 138 acres, surrounded by nature, yet will still be close to Greenville’s city center. The Vidant Medical community is also conveniently located only miles away. This will provide residents with many conveniences, including excellent restaurants and shopping, as well as prestigious medical facilities.

Type of Home


What kind of home would you prefer? Would you enjoy having space in an area separate from others? Are you the sociable type who loves interacting with others and being close to neighbors? Your personality will play a big part in deciding what kind of home will be the perfect fit for you.

The SpringShire community will offer residents their choice from villas, estate homes and various apartment floor plans.

Floor Plan

Once you’ve decided on what type of home will meet your retirement living goals, you now have to decide on the right layout for your home. Think about how many bedrooms you want. Do you need room for guests or would you prefer them to stay in a hotel or other accommodation when they visit? Do you need extra space for storage? Do you like to entertain? Consider all of these things when deciding on the floor plan of your estate home, villa or apartment.

SpringShire will have homes with a variety of floor plans ranging from 800-1800 square feet, with one, two and three bedroom options. SpringShire residences will have walk-in closets and easy access showers.

Services and Amenities

What added features would you like in your home and community? What amenities will suit your lifestyle and allow you to live comfortably for years to come?

SpringShire will allow residents to live maintenance-free by offering indoor/outdoor maintenance, housekeeping and flat linen service. Residents will also enjoy a host of amenities including a fitness and indoor aquatics center, multiple dining venues, walking trails, movie theater, salon and much more.
