Senior living apartments are just that – apartments (townhouses and condos may also fall in this category) within communities or complexes which are specifically designed with the wants and needs of older adults in mind. This may include provisions such as age restrictions, and often includes many fantastic perks, such as laundry and housekeeping services, onsite amenities such as spas, fitness centers and salons, and much more.
Many older adults reach a point in their lives where living in a home or a traditional apartment is no longer the best or the most appealing living option for their situation. Elements of a traditional home, condo or even apartment such as stairs, high cabinets, etc. can make life more difficult as they age, and chores such as cleaning, laundry and other household duties take up much of their time. For these reasons and more, many seniors are now choosing senior living apartments over traditional housing options.
Cost Savings and Convenience Compared to Living at Home
Compared to a house, senior living apartments require significantly less maintenance and may lower monthly payments, depending on your situation. Selling your home to move to an apartment also frees up equity which can be used to travel, enjoy life or spend on children and grandchildren.
Some senior living apartment complexes are just age-restricted apartment complexes. They may have a pool and fitness center, but don’t usually include medical, dining or other services. The Legacy Willow Bend, on the other hand, offers senior living apartments on a campus that includes these elements and more.
The Legacy Willow Bend also puts you right within close proximity to fine-dining restaurants, The Shops at Willow Bend, as well as multiple hospitals and medical centers (including Baylor Scott & White Medical Center).
Privacy and Proximity to Neighbors, Friends, and So Much More
The independent living and assisted living apartments at The Legacy Willow Bend offer residents the best of both worlds. Having your own private residence allows you the comfort to live your life the way you want to, and being a part of a larger community means that you’re only a short walk away from neighbors and friends, activities, dining, fitness and more.
