When Is It Time To Move to a Retirement Community?

Retirement gives you the unique opportunity to focus on doing everything you love. Working on your favorite hobby, sharing a delicious meal with friends, exploring new sites and shops around you – it’s truly time to be all about yourself. 

When you’re considering how you’re going to make the most of your retirement, your community plays a big part in living the life you want to lead. It may be time to evaluate your housing options. Living in a rental community that offers inspired activities, social events, and ways to maintain your wellness can give you the high quality of life that you deserve.

Now is the time to move to a retirement community that’s focused on you leading an active and enriching life. Copeland Tower Living in Metairie, LA, is a 55+ retirement community dedicated to doing just that. 

4 Ways to Know When to Move to Senior Living

1. You Deserve Security and Peace of Mind

One of the many benefits of independent living options is security. If you’re living on your own, you may worry about your safety or the security of your belongings. You shouldn’t have to deal with stressful what-if situations. Peace of mind is paramount to your mental well-being, and living in a retirement community can give that to you. 

When you’re in a senior living community, you can rest assured that security measures are in place to ensure you are safe in the community, as are your personal belongings. Copeland Tower Living has staff on site 24/7 and overnight patrolled security to make sure the community is safe, so you can focus on relaxing without anything holding you back. 

2. Socialization in Retirement Communities Benefits Your Health

As an older adult, maintaining both physical and social activity improves your well-being. The CDC says adults who stay active have greater benefits to their mood and wellness. Physical activity also reduces symptoms of anxiety and depression. 

Copeland Tower Living understands how important this is, which is why we have a state-of-the-art wellness center for our residents. In addition to our wellness center, we also offer the following:

  • A full-service spa and salon for rest and relaxation
  • A heated outdoor swimming pool, perfect for exercise or cooling off

Independent living in a retirement community doesn’t mean you’re on your own – it empowers you to decide what you want to do when you want to do it. Social programming gives you plenty of ways to fill your calendar with as many events as you’d like.

You could make plans with your friends each and every day – which is even easier when your friends are your neighbors. There’s always something new to try out.

Are you an explorer? Whether you’re participating in one of our many planned recreational activities or you’re going for a stroll on the walking trail to get some sun and fresh air, you have so many options when it comes to deciding exactly how you want to spend your day. 

We’re located near Lake Pontchartrain and a boat launch, so for anyone who loves being out on the water, taking a cruise along the picturesque lake is an ideal way to unwind on a beautiful day. All these opportunities for social activities should help when you’re making the decision as to when you’d like to make the move to a community like ours.

3. You Could be a Short Drive From The Big Easy

The best part of a community merely minutes away from downtown New Orleans means all the city has to offer is right at your fingertips. Copeland Tower Living residents enjoy it all – the Cajun- and Creole-inspired cuisine, as many jazz clubs as you could ever want to visit, and you’re within walking distance of the Metairie Mardi Gras Parade Route.

Residents are also within walking distance of locally owned boutiques and restaurants. Why not have a day in the city with friends to go shopping and try a new restaurant? The list of fun things to do in Metairie is endless, and there’s truly something for everyone. 

But if you’re more in the mood to stay in, it doesn’t mean you’re out of options for the evening.  Copeland Tower Living also has an on-site bar and cocktail lounge, so you can sip delicious drinks as you talk with friends about what you did that day. 

4. Enjoy Maintenance-Free Living at Home

Taking care of a home can get overwhelming and time-consuming, which can cause stress and keep you away from spending your time how you want to. Another reason that now is the right time to move to a retirement community – make home maintenance a thing of the past. 

In addition to maintaining a home, keeping up with chores is another big item that can take up so much precious time when you’d rather be out and about. Retirement communities relieve all this weight from your shoulders.

Residents at Copeland Tower Living never have to worry about cleaning or taking care of appliances if they break. When you enter our rental senior living community, we do the cleaning and take care of repairs and overall maintenance of the building. 

There’s No Better Time To Move to a Retirement Community

We understand that making the move is a major step. While this is a big decision, moving to a retirement community could be the step that allows you to fully embrace being able to do anything and everything that interests you.  

At Copeland Tower Living, everything you need is in our community. Our senior housing is designed to give you plenty of space, with a community ready to welcome you right outside your door.
