5 Ways to Enjoy a Resident-Driven Senior Community

If you’re kicking around the notion of making a move to a senior living community, think about what’s important to you. Then ask yourself if those same things are important to your prospective retirement community.

Resident-driven communities focus on the values of the people who live there. You prize your happiness, and your new senior living community should, too.

Resident-driven care is not an infant concept in our industry, but it is the most appreciated. Independent seniors across the U.S. seek cooperative retirement communities. What’s the difference between resident-driven communities and everyone else?

What Do Resident-Driven Senior Communities Value Most?

In resident-driven establishments like Sugar Hill Retirement Community, there are 5 cardinal concepts:


First and foremost is the principle of respect. To us, mutual respect is the foundation of all else. We expect this to be evident in our staff, both inside and outside the community.


An independent lifestyle hinges on a resident being able to make selections. Many of us have habits or routines we favor over others. Your new home shouldn’t force you to find new familiarities or behaviors that make you feel comfortable. A good senior living community seeks input from the residents and provides them with the freedom to live their lives. At Sugar Hill, you are free to participate as much or as little as you wish.


In this field, “community” is a word that gets tossed about from time to time. At Sugar Hill, we don’t use it as a term for the arrangement of homes. Instead, we strive to cultivate a rich network of support among our employees and residents. A truly unified community is a powerful force for good.


We believe great relationships are the fabric of what makes us a vibrant, healthy and happy destination for aging. Bonding as human beings instills compassion in us. Come visit us in Wolfeboro, and you’ll find this kinship.


If you don’t feel empowered as a resident, you cannot help us become a better organization to serve you. Through various avenues, we encourage residents to make contributions to our community to benefit themselves and one another. Our mission is furthered by the ideas of our residents.

With this ideology ingrained in our culture, it is easy to see how Sugar Hill Retirement Community is one of New England’s best. Surrounding yourself with qualified professionals who respect and empower you is one of the many benefits of retirement in our New Hampshire senior living community. Come visit us and experience a resident-driven community for yourself.
