Offering a range of senior living services that include independent living, assisted living, and memory care, The Ackerly at Timberland is inspiring today’s older adults who are seeking a new journey, embracing joy and purpose in every day of retirement. With an abundance of activities, social events, travel opportunities, and fine dining – what’s not to love? Take a closer look at why there’s never been a better time to move to senior living. 

What is Senior Living? 

Also called a retirement community, senior living describes a residential community where older adults want to live with other people the same age and appreciate a more social lifestyle, while having the peace of mind that care services are available if needed.

These residential communities are designed specifically for older adults, who are seeking a supportive and engaging environment tailored to their needs. Senior living communities prioritize the well-being of residents by providing various amenities and services that cater to their physical, social, and emotional needs. Here, residents are active, engaging in community life while also enjoying the luxuries of private accommodations from the comfort of their apartment homes. 

Benefits of Senior Living

Today’s older adults expect nothing less than the best, and today’s senior living communities are rising to their expectations. More like resort-style living than retirement, residents in these communities enjoy a wide range of benefits, especially those who move from living alone into a community. Through volunteer opportunities, an engaging activities calendar, and a supportive community, residents find the support they need to show up as their best selves for the people and moments that matter most. 

Residents at Fairwinds have access to Leisure Care’s exclusive signature programming,  including PrimeFit Wellness. Bringing living well and well-being together, PrimeFit Wellness takes fitness outside the gym and expands into every aspect of community life. From the kitchen to the activity calendar, everything at The Ackerly at Timberland works together to ensure their residents have the most fulfilling, rewarding, and productive opportunities possible.

Through PrimeFit Wellness, signature programs, and high-end amenities, residents at The Ackerly at Timberland enjoy:

Social Connection

Senior living fosters a sense of community and social engagement. Residents have opportunities to make new friends, participate in group activities, and enjoy a wide range of social events. This combats feelings of isolation and promotes mental and emotional well-being.

Maintenance-Free Living

Seniors often find relief in moving to a senior living community where daily chores like housekeeping, yard maintenance, and home repairs are taken care of. This allows residents to focus on enjoying their time and pursuing activities they love.

Nutritious Dining Options

Many senior living communities offer well-balanced and nutritious meals, often tailored to individual dietary needs. Regular and healthy dining options contribute to better nutrition and overall health.

Access to Amenities

Senior living communities provide access to various amenities such as fitness centers, swimming pools, libraries, and communal spaces for socializing. These amenities promote an active and fulfilling lifestyle.

Access to Professional Care Services

For those who require assistance with daily tasks or have specific health needs, senior living communities provide professional care services. This ensures that residents receive the support they need while maintaining their independence.

Cultural and Recreational Activities

Senior living communities organize a variety of cultural and recreational activities, including art classes, lectures, outings, and entertainment. These activities contribute to intellectual stimulation and a sense of purpose.

Transportation Services

Many senior living communities offer transportation services for shopping, medical appointments, and community outings. This provides convenience and ensures that residents can easily access the services and resources they need.

Security and Peace of Mind

Knowing that there is a support system in place, including trained staff and security measures, provides residents and their families with peace of mind. This security allows seniors to age in place comfortably.

Transition Support

Moving to senior living often involves downsizing and transitioning from a family home. Senior living communities typically offer support throughout this process, making the move smoother and less stressful.
