Their Best Life
Tips, advice and services to help your aging parents enjoy their senior years.

by Staff

“Residents of 55-and-over communities like a strong sense of community with their fellow neighbors and maintenance-free living. They are not tied up on weekends with cutting the lawn or shoveling snow. Residents like that we offer 24-hour maintenance and the peace of mind of a secured building. The families like that we have a resident-focused staff and take comfort in knowing that their loved one’s needs are cared for, whether it’s maintenance requests or spending time talking with them. We offer a mobile hairdresser, pet groomer, phlebotomist and work with outside agencies for homecare if it’s needed, plus we get them out to socialize at events in the community.”

“There are two main financial concerns among the senior population. One is simply running out of money in retirement and the other is paying for long-term care. If they have enough assets, some people will self-fund long-term care, while others will decide to look at buying a hybrid long-term care policy— whether they use it or not at least it will be a death benefit to their family; it’s not a use it or lose it type of situation. On the income side, depending on the amount of assets, we either look to put together a customized, fixed-income portfolio or potentially use an annuity to guarantee income. It’s not always the best fit, but it’s one way to guarantee income for both spouses throughout their lifetime.”

“We often ask people what they are waiting for by investing in scooters and other mobility equipment. We can help them get back their life so they can go to their grandkids’ games on the weekend or go to the Boardwalk without getting exhausted. These products are now lighter weight with lithium batteries that are only one pound, as opposed to the 20 or 30 pounds they used to be, and they have longer run times. Many scooters fold up, have a modern look and can even have a custom color. We have many options on display that allow people to try each one to find their perfect solution.”

“We offer warm water and a warm welcome to the senior population. We offer way more than just exercise classes, we offer a community. We have a wide variety of classes in our brand-new, state-of-the-art warm water pool. Our zero-entry ramp makes our pool accessible to all. We use the water’s resistance to strengthen and tone your body from head to toe and our energetic and passionate instructors are able to cater classes specifically to each individual's goals. Aquatic exercise is a fun and safe way to improve muscle strength, flexibility and balance without impact on your joints or risk of injury.”
