Imagine leading a lifestyle where you are free to do whatever you want at the drop of a hat. If you choose to move into a resort-style senior living community, this could be you.

Throughout your adult life, you have been working toward and planning your retirement. Now it is time for you to make your desired lifestyle a reality. At Franklin Park® Senior living, offering luxury communities throughout San Antonio, Texas, we understand the significance of this new stage of life, and we help individuals make the most of it.

To help you do this, we are sharing how senior living can free you so you can enjoy life more.

Free from Home Care & Upkeep

When you own a house, there is always something to do. Whether it is mowing the lawn, weeding the garden, vacuuming and cleaning, or doing laundry, maintaining a private residence can take up most, if not all, of your time. But we believe your retirement should be about discovering (or rediscovering) hobbies, learning, exploring, and spending your days how you choose.

Fortunately, all home maintenance and upkeep tasks are taken care of for you when you live in a senior living community. This can free up your time and grant you endless opportunities to enjoy the hobbies and activities that matter to you.

Free from Financial Stress

When it comes to resort-style senior living, many people assume that it will be too far out of their budget. But what many people don’t realize or consider is just how much this lifestyle includes.

When you live in a private residence, you have to pay a mortgage (or, if it’s paid, handle the costs of repairs and maintenance). If you want to become a member of a fitness center, that’s another cost. If your needs change and you require in-home assistance or support, there’s another cost. Individually, these may seem like regular expenses, but they can add up quickly.

And these piling costs can lead to financial concerns. If fact, one survey found that “major financial stress was reported by 45% of respondents in their 40s, 41% of those in their 50s, 31% of those in their 60s, and one in five (19 percent) of those age 70 and above (”

When it comes to senior living communities, they charge a rate that not only includes your living accommodations but some or all of your utilities, care, meal options, services like housekeeping and laundry, and access to community amenities and features. This allows residents to understand their budget better and know they don’t have to worry about an “unexpected” cost popping up.

Free to Access Supportive Services

We all need a little extra help from time to time. Even if you move into a senior living community as an independent living resident, you can enjoy peace of mind knowing that support and assistance are available should you ever need help.

Down the road, if your care needs change, you can transition into a higher level of care within the same community if they offer it. For example, throughout our resort-style senior living communities in San Antonio, Franklin Park® provides independent living, assisted living, and memory care options.

Free to Explore Resort-Style Amenities

When you live in a senior living community, you are free to spend each day however you wish. As a bonus, at Franklin Park®, you have resort-style amenities at your disposal!

Living in a luxury senior living community is similar to living in a resort, and who wouldn’t love that? We offer exceptional amenities that help our residents live freely and enjoy life to the fullest, including:

  • Business amenities
  • Health and fitness centers
  • On-site shopping
