5 Reasons to Consider a Senior-Living Apartment at Grand Arbor
It might have come on slowly or all of a sudden. The time when you said to yourself, “I’m done. I’m done with yard work, home maintenance and shoveling.”
Then what? An apartment? If you’re active and want to be with others with similar interests – and a similar age – a standard apartment probably won’t meet your needs.
Enter independent, senior-living apartments. You’ll escape the work and hassle of home ownership. But more than that, you’ll find a community where you can thrive.
1. As social as you want to be
Moving to a senior-living community means you’ll meet new friends with similar interests. At Grand Arbor, there are many opportunities to meet new friends, including through many activities.
You’ll have ready access to others without having to get in the car and go somewhere. For example, the sitting areas around our lobby fireplaces are often informal conversation hubs. And it’s always up to you. You’re free to be as social as you want to be.
2. Engagement is easy
You no doubt have activities that you enjoy. But maybe you’re tired of always having to drive. Grand Arbor has a myriad of formal and informal activities each week, from card clubs to walking groups. (In the winter, there’s plenty of area to walk inside. No need to drive to the mall or gym.) Our movie theater is busy seven days a week with new and old favorites. Movies – and popcorn – are always free for residents and their guests.
3. On-site fitness
The Nelson Wellness Center is so popular, people in the community want to join! (45+ only) There’s state-of-the-art exercise equipment and a heated pool. Classes cater to those who are in great shape to those who have trouble with balance - and those in between.
4. Amenities to make your life easier
Don’t feel like cooking? Want to share a meal with friends or take the family out for a meal? You can and without leaving home. The Pioneer Grill is our on-site, made-from-scratch restaurant. (It’s open to the public, too!)
Grand Arbor also includes other amenities to add ease to your life: a barber/beauty shop, gift shop, quick-serve bistro (sandwiches, soups, salads), high-speed internet (and staff to install it for you), underground heated parking and more.
5. Continuum of Care
Grand Arbor includes senior living, assisted living, enhanced living and memory care. That means if you need more care, it’s right there under the same roof.
