Enjoy the High Life in Senior Living

Enjoy the High Life in Senior Living

Yes, you read that right. The ‘high life,’ defined as an exciting and luxurious way of living, may not seem synonymous with senior living but you might be surprised. In fact, seniors just like you are enjoying this type of lifestyle right now. Here’s what you’ve been missing and how to get in on the fun!

The Convenience

In senior living you won’t have to worry about the mortgage, property taxes, home insurance or unexpected repair bills. You’ll have predictable monthly expenses with housekeeping, laundry and home maintenance included in your cost as well as utilities in some cases.

Plus, senior living communities are specifically located in the center of it all. You won’t have to worry about driving all around town with easy access to the services, shopping and entertainment you want. At Richfield, you’ll have easy access to everything the Roanoke and New River Valley areas offer as well as an onsite pharmacy, physician offices and a dialysis center.

The Lifestyle

Imagine having resort-like amenities such as beautifully landscaped grounds, restaurant-style dining, onsite beauty salon, pool and fitness center at your disposal. Well in senior living, it’s all right outside your door! We’re located at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Virginia and our campus overlooks a scenic lake providing ample natural beauty.

It’s a lifestyle that also gives you independence and choice. Most communities offer condominiums, apartments, free-standing cottages or single-family homes, whichever suits your needs best. Here you also have the option for concierge services and transportation.

The Connections

You won’t ever have to worry about being alone – unless you just want some quiet time by yourself – as senior living communities offer a monthly calendar of social activities and outings, educational and enrichment programs, fitness classes and even volunteer opportunities. Many even have a dedicated program director. Here’s a sample of what you’ll find on our ever-changing calendar:

  • Classes – Cooking, Crafts, Painting, Poetry
  • Outings – Restaurants, Movies, Events, Shopping
  • Clubs – Red Hat Society, Men’s Club

The Peace of Mind

Some senior living communities, like Richfield, have a continuum of care that includes retirement living, assisted living and/or memory care on the same campus. This gives you peace of mind that you can stay in the same place, with friends and familiar surroundings as well as continuity of care however your health needs evolve.

What’s more, we follow a rental model (with no buy-in fee) and you’re not locked into a permanent contract. Instead, you pay for only what you need and have more financial flexibility for your future. Plus, as a not-for-profit community, the investment you make to live at Richfield comes right back, not into shareholders’ pockets. Instead, our profits go toward improving the care, programs and services you enjoy every day!

It truly is the high life! To learn about senior living at Richfield, contact us today.
