Choosing the Right Senior Living Floor Plan for Your Needs

There are a lot of advantages to choosing the independent living lifestyle of a retirement community like Timber Ridge of Talus. But after spending decades in your own home, it can still be challenging to think about moving into senior living. When you take a closer look at the senior living floor plans, you’re sure to find an option that fits your lifestyle while also giving you access to a variety of helpful services and thoughtful amenities.

Questions to Consider:

Before choosing a senior housing option, it’s important to think about what you have now and what you’ll want in the future. To help, here are important questions to ask yourself.

  • How much space do you really need?

    In your current home, notice what rooms you really use and which ones you rarely go into. This will help you figure out how much living space you need. Also consider the things you won’t need when you move to a maintenance-free community like Timber Ridge. For example, you won’t need to store a lawn mower and other yard tools, because we’ll handle all the landscaping. You won’t need a treadmill or other workout equipment, because you’ll have access to the community’s fitness center. And you won’t need a restaurant-sized kitchen, because you’ll have dining options on campus. In fact, you won’t have to cook or clean up ever again unless you want to.

  • What do you need to make your home feel like yours?

    Everyone has items in their home — an heirloom piece of furniture, favorite artwork ,or a set of cooking knives — that’s an expression of their personality and makes home feel like home. Think about the pieces you absolutely, definitely must have in your new place to make sure you have room for the items that are important to you.

  • Will you be living on your own or with a spouse?

    A single person generally requires less overall space than a couple. If you’re moving with your significant other, you’ll want to find the right balance between having your own personal space without it feeling like you’re living on top of each other. Also remember you’ll have a whole community to explore and enjoy.

  • What features does the community offer?

    Are there a lot of open community spaces to spend your time? How about natural lighting and vibrant colors? How does the community fit into your current lifestyle and goals for the future?

  • Will you have guests?

    Do you enjoy having friends and family over for movie nights, parties, and other social gatherings? Or will you have grandchildren over for sleepovers? If so, you might want to consider an apartment with more square footage so guests will feel comfortable in your new home. Some senior living communities also have guest accommodation you can reserve when you have family in town.
