May 11, 2023 —If you’re an active, healthy older adult who’s already retired or on the verge of retiring, you may have wondered if moving to senior living makes sense for you. According to AARP, the majority of older adults—77% of adults 50 and older—would prefer to remain in their current homes. After all, if you’re healthy and don’t need assistance, why should you move to a retirement community right now?
As it turns out, moving into a senior living community sooner rather than later can provide countless benefits. Moving while you’re still a “young” older adult allows you to give up a lot of tedious tasks and responsibilities and lets you say “yes” to making new friends, planning new adventures, experiencing lifelong learning, and enjoying a vibrant, wellness-focused lifestyle.
A Life Plan Community like Kendal on Hudson helps older adults plan out the retirement lifestyle of their dreams. Here’s how.
Say Goodbye to Tedious Chores
You may be retired, but that doesn’t mean that you’re completely free of responsibilities. You still have all the tasks that come with homeownership: lawn maintenance, home maintenance, housecleaning, paying bills, shoveling snow … the list goes on.
Residents at Kendal on Hudson no longer have to worry about having to do those things, and instead are able to spend their time doing exactly what they want. Our bright, airy apartments come in a variety of floor plans designed to fit your retirement lifestyle to a tee. And since we offer biweekly housekeeping, weekly linen service, most utilities included, trash removal and interior/exterior maintenance, our residents have all the time they desire to pursue their interests and passions.
Say Hello to an Active Social Life
Step outside your apartment door and you’ll find yourself immersed in a vibrant, active and interesting community of others in the same stage of life. Our residents are an accomplished group of adults who’ve traveled the globe, enjoyed accomplished careers, and are now looking forward to continuing to build their community. Moving into Kendal on Hudson while you’re still active and healthy means you’ll form new friendships to last a lifetime.
Alongside making new friends, you’ll also have so many opportunities to explore everything that Sleepy Hollow, NY, has to offer. Our beautiful 25-acre campus is located near the banks of the Hudson River and is close to everything to love about Westchester County. The delights of Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow are minutes away, and New York City is a convenient car or train ride away.
Our retirement community offers a full calendar of events and activities, including Sunday at the Opera, film groups, concerts, music groups, and lifelong learning classes. Our residents have created a range of special interest groups, such as quilting, book club, gardening and more, so there are always opportunities to hone a new skill or pursue old passions.
Live a Wellness-Focused Lifestyle
Kendal on Hudson views wellness holistically, engaging our residents’ minds, bodies, and souls. Since we are a Life Plan Community, our purpose is to help our residents age well, no matter what their personal needs may be now or in the future.
Physical fitness is an essential part of wellness, and our state-of-the-art fitness center offers a wide variety of classes and activities to encourage an active lifestyle. Our professional staff works one-on-one with residents to help develop and maintain personal health and wellness goals.
Eating well is another important part of wellness, and dining at Kendal on Hudson is more than eating good food—it’s a true sensory experience. Our culinary team is staffed with amazing chefs (some trained at The Culinary Institute of America) who work to create locally sourced, fresh, nutritious and delicious meals that delight our residents’ palates and feed the soul as well as the body.
Finally, knowing that health care and help are always available is important to wellness and peace of mind. As a Life Plan Community, Kendal on Hudson provides a full continuum of care for our residents: Independent Living, Assisted Living, Memory Support, Skilled Nursing, and Rehabilitation. Our Lifecare contract ensures that our residents will always receive the care they need at predictable rates, helping preserve retirement income and personal estates for future generations.
