The Privacy and Social Benefits of Independent Living - The Best of Both Worlds

A recent Bloomberg article, “Tiny Houses Big With U.S. Owners Seeking Economic Freedom,” highlights the trend to purchase smaller homes and downsize living space in the United States. The trend is gaining momentum across the nation because it minimizes expenses, maintains privacy, and maximizes financial and personal freedom. Downsizing to a smaller living space is especially appealing for seniors, who want a comfortable home without all the housework.

Many seniors want to downsize but worry that they will have to trade the privacy of their own home for the convenience of community living. Living at Sugar Hill Retirement Community is like having the best of both worlds.

Independent Living – The Best of Both Worlds

Independent living in a community environment provides a unique opportunity to engage in social activities without having to travel great distances – just step out your front door for full access to dining, exercise classes in a fully equipped fitness room, watch a movie in the multimedia center, or enjoy a snack in the coffee shop. Activity coordinators fill the calendar with a wide variety of interesting trips and activities you may have never considered before, such as bird watching, social hours, and group trips to local museums, sports games, or concerts.

While community living provides access to all the luxuries, conveniences and amenities, private rooms create an intimate home environment. Behind closed doors, you are free to relax in the privacy of your own home without the burdens of home maintenance. You have your own bedroom, bathroom, and den, for example, and you can put your favorite food in your own refrigerator and cook it on your own stove. Your Sugar Hill Retirement Community creates a comfortable living space that matches your personal style.

Sugar Hill Retirement Community provides the best of both worlds – all the conveniences and amenities of independent living and the privacy of your own home. Make an appointment to visit Sugar Hill by calling 603-569-8485 or emailing
