WHEN’S THE PERFECT TIME TO MOVE?

THE PERFECT TIME TO MOVE. WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE?
The short answer: it looks different to everybody. One thing everybody can agree on though is that it’s better to start early. You’d be surprised just how exciting a move to a Life Plan Community can be, and how much there is to take advantage of—which brings us to some common misconceptions.

MISCONCEPTION 1: “I AM TOO YOUNG TO MOVE INTO A SENIOR LIVING COMMUNITY”
Put simply, you’re not! At Henry Ford Village, there’s so much to take advantage of in your retirement years. Go for a walk, take a virtual class, hit the woodshop. Meet a friend at the pottery studio. Work at the garden. The options are nearly endless! And always changing—it’s 365 days of opportunity here.

“Residents of communities with more amenities are more physically active and engage in more healthy behaviors ” –Age Well Study

An active lifestyle community like Henry Ford Village has so much to offer. Opportunity is key, and making sure everyone at every age has the resources to make the most of life is our main priority. Request the Good Life Guidebook that can help you assess your needs, wants, and facts before making a big decision.

MISCONCEPTION 2: “I’M IN GOOD HEALTH, AND WILL WAIT UNTIL I NEED CARE”
It’s okay to wait. But it’s better to have a plan, that much is true. The benefits of being proactive amidst changing times are too many to count—but a major one— is being close to care. Health care is right here onsite, offering assisted living and health and rehabilitation. At Henry Ford Village offering a full continuum of care means being well equipped to handle the challenges of aging, whether that be for you or your spouse.

That’s another important point. Should your loved one need care, you’re right there with them. No need to worry about being apart like you would be in a normal housing situation. The Life Plan Community lifestyle is all-encompassing, and health and wellness are prioritized at every opportunity.

It’s not too early to be proactive and take steps toward the future you want. Give us a call if we can answer any questions or help you move forward confidently.
