The Bright Side of Aging and the Power of Now

Perhaps you know someone who’s been dreading a milestone birthday. Maybe it’s you. We’ve all heard it – age is just a number. And although that’s true, there are definitely some bright sides to that number growing. So what would happen if we threw out any preconceived notions of what aging means and simply celebrated our lives and what they have to offer right now?

THE KNOWLEDGE

It’s normal to reflect on the past, remembering mishaps and the like. However, it’s because of any failures and all of those successes that you are where you are today. You know things and you’re still learning. Perhaps you have more time to be social and pursue new interests. No matter what, we’re willing to bet you’re an ageless wonder with all sorts of potential and opportunities.


THE OPPORTUNITIES


The world is your oyster. In fact, if you were to order a plate of oysters, you’d probably get a fabulous discount – a senior discount. Not only can you get discounts on all sorts of food and activities, you might even be able to get discounts on travel as wells as find some exciting and affordable living for the aging. Whether you’re looking for a great deal or simply a fabulous new place to call home, there are so many living options for this inspired time – from active adult communities to assisted living to memory care, adult foster care and more. Whatever amenities you need or luxuries you desire, we can help you find that perfect fit.

THE BODY


Okay, it’s possible that your body acts a little differently than it used you. However, we’re willing to bet you know it, you’re in tune with it and you listen to it. As far as any perceived imperfections go, remember this: People see you as a whole person – not a neck, not a stomach, not any one bit or piece. You’re so much more than arms or hair. You’re a well-rounded, functional person with goals and dreams. And not only that, if you feel you personally have to pick one bit or piece to focus on, chose something glorious. Maybe it’s those muscular legs that tote you around the active adult communities every morning just in time for the sunrise or the luscious salt and pepper mane you sport. But whatever it is, embrace it and let your perceptions of any imperfections go.


THE NEXT STEPS: This is absolutely your time to shine.


1) Consider your goals. Maybe you want to be more active. If so, consider local active living communities for seniors. Perhaps you’ve always wanted to write a book. Now is a great time to get that outline started. Does your heart long for adventure? Reach out to your nearest and dearest and plan the trip of a lifetime... or convince them to move to your new neighborhood. Looking for affordable living for the aging? We have you covered.


2) Shift your focus to those great things going on in your life right now. And those negatives? Sip some coffee in the sunshine, consider them and use them to guide you to exactly where you want to be.


3) Have housing goals? We’re here for you. And you have our word that there are no tricks, no strings and no out-of-pocket fees for our services. We do what we do because we care about you and your family, and will only match you or your loved one with a community in which we would feel comfortable placing our own family members. Because our goal is to you get exactly what you need as well as what you want, whether that’s elder care assistance or active adult communities, we’ll help you explore all of your options when considering what comes next.
