There are many myths surrounding the reality of senior living and retirement that are often misconstrued. With research comes many myths about senior communities, Melody Living Lake in the Hills is here to debunk a few for you!
1. Senior apartments are more expensive- When you factor in the cost of rent or mortgage, groceries, lawn care, unexpected repairs, and regular maintenance, staying at home is often the same as or more than the cost of an independent senior neighborhood. However, you miss out on the important aspect of community when you stay at home. Melody Living offers one monthly service fee, which means you only pay for the care you need. Amenities included have been aligned to create a low-maintenance life so you can get back to enjoying the things you love and engaging with your community
2. The food won’t be good- Melody Living’s in-house gourmet chef cooks 3 meals a day with the knowledge that our palate changes as we age. Menus are cultivated to maximize taste and healthy choices. Through our Foodies Club, resident input is paramount to ensuring there are options for a variety of preferences. Residents rave about the delicious meals our chef has cooked up, there’s never any skimping out on flavor or creativity. Don’t believe us? Get a meal on us when you come in for a tour.
3. I’ll be bored- Our Life Enrichment Director creates a monthly calendar filled with exciting activities and outings all based on our resident's preferences. Social wellness is one of our top priorities for our residents in line with the Eight Dimensions of Wellness. Interested in being a tourist in your own city? Want to get back into a favorite hobby with fellow enthusiasts? Maybe you’re interested in seeing some live music? Let our Life Enrichment Director know and we’ll do our best to add it to the calendar. There’s always something fun on the agenda and activities are always built around our residents.
