Tips for Choosing the Right Senior Living Residences at Seafields

Deciding between senior living options can be challenging, as each has its own unique set of benefits and offered amenities. To achieve an ideal living space that suits your lifestyle, it’s important to take the time to choose the right residence.

Here at Seafields, our senior living residences have gained immense popularity for our exceptional care, vibrant community, and stunning coastal settings in the South Carolina Lowcountry. In this blog, we will discuss the key factors to consider when choosing the right senior living residence for you, ensuring a seamless transition into a fulfilling and enriching lifestyle. 

1. Location

Arguably the most important factor when choosing a senior living residence is location as it plays a key role in your ability to maintain social connections and access necessary services. When looking to relocate, consider the proximity of the residence to your family, friends, and healthcare facilities, along with lifestyle amenities such as parks, shopping centers, and cultural institutions. In the long run, this will make your life more enjoyable and make it easier to stay connected.

2. Size of the Home

Once you have a location in mind, take some time to assess your space requirements and preferences. Consider the number of bedrooms and bathrooms you would like to have, as well as the size of the living area, kitchen, and storage spaces. Ask yourself how these factors align with your lifestyle and preferences. Additionally, think about any potential future changes, such as accommodating guests or adapting to physical limitations, and how the residence can accommodate those needs.

One way to do this is to take inventory of any specific furniture or personal items you wish to accommodate comfortably within your new residence. It will help you get a better idea of the size of the home you need.

3. Financial Considerations

Understand the pricing structure, including any entrance fees, monthly fees, and additional costs for services. Evaluate the financial feasibility and consider whether the residence aligns with your budget and financial situation.

4. Accessibility and Safety

Next, ensure that the floor plan you choose prioritizes accessibility and safety. Look for features such as wide doorways and corridors, grab bars in bathrooms, non-slip flooring, and easy-to-reach switches and outlets. By choosing a well-designed floor plan that caters to mobility challenges, you can greatly enhance your daily living experience, even as your needs change.

5. Common Areas and Amenities

Evaluate the availability and layout of common areas and amenities within the senior living residence. Look for well-designed spaces for socializing, fitness, dining, and relaxation. Consider how these areas will fit into your lifestyle and if they meet your expectations for community engagement and leisure activities.

Here at Seafields, our community is designed to create a social environment that all can enjoy. With countless amenities to help you stay active and engaged, you can continue to make the most of your life in our luxury Life Plan Community.

6. Expert Guidance

Consult with the staff or experts at the senior living residence to help you find the home that aligns with your lifestyle and preferences. They can help you gain insights into the available floor plans, explaining the dimensions, specific features, and any customization options that are offered. Their expertise can help you make an informed decision that aligns with your specific needs and preferences.

7. Model Residences

Whenever possible, visit model residences or display units to experience the floor plans firsthand. This will give you a sense of the flow, layout, and natural lighting within the space –– something that can be difficult to do with pictures and videos alone. Visualizing yourself living in the residence can provide valuable insights and make you more confident in your choice.
