Each year spring brings new beginnings, which makes it a great time to have a new beginning of your own! Spring can be a great time to move. Housing sales start to pick up in spring, plus the better weather means you can take advantage of all the great things that Okanagan retirement community has to offer!

Here are our 5 favourite benefits of moving to a retirement community this spring:

1. Easy Retirement-friendly Recreation Opportunities and Amenities

Perhaps one of the biggest perks of living in a retirement community is that they provide a ton of amenities. Built-in recreational calendars, regularly scheduled meal times, and on-site facilities like exercise studios, hair salons, or cafes provide a steady stream of different activities to choose from. Having lots of readily available activities makes it easy for seniors to find something that they’d love to do, increases chances for socialization, and provides a feeling of belonging to the community – which means you’ll find a hobby and a home!

2. No More Home Maintenance

After a cold winter, home maintenance and repairs can seem overwhelming. When you live in a retirement community, raking the yard, mowing the lawn, and fixing the gutter are chores of the past; and maintenance and repairs are taken care of by the many helpful staff that work at your retirement community – at no extra cost to you! 

3. Retirement Communities offer Socialization

One of the biggest struggles that seniors face is loneliness. This isolation can make your retirement years feel long and slow. But, when you live in a retirement community you are surrounded by a community of your peers! With daily activities and community amenities, it’s easy to stay socially engaged. You may even make a new best friend that shares your interests!

4. Access to Additional Services

Although Sun Village is considered to be an independent living community, there are additional services available should you or your senior loved one require help. A flexible service package can be arranged with the management team for an additional fee for higher care needs such as lunch or personal laundry.

5. More Free Time and Independence!

Now that you are ready to move into a retirement community in the Okanagan , you have time to enjoy living life fully every day with the independence you need. Instead of spending time on day-to-day chores, you can focus on discovering new passions, making new friends, or enjoying the recreation activities offered here.
