Are you or a loved one considering moving to a senior living community? You may not be aware of all the options out there—or you might be stuck between a million possibilities, wondering which one is right for you. It’s normal to think, “I want to enjoy a stress-free retirement, but I don’t want to give up my freedom.” We hear you! That’s why we believe in a concept called “personalized living.”
Personalized living is similar in some ways to traditional independent living. It offers many of the same freedom but provides more flexibility when choosing the services you do or do not want in your day-to-day life.
What Does Personalized Living Include?
Residents in personalized living have a private apartment with housekeeping services and onsite dining options. Retirement is all about relaxation—and household chores (like cooking or cleaning) shouldn’t hinder that. But if you’re a passionate cook, don’t fear: many of our one or two-bedroom apartments contain a full-size kitchen.
Your private space also includes updated features such as spacious living floorplans, granite countertops, an in-unit washer and dryer, and top-of-the-line finishes.
You’ll also have full access to our communal spaces and amenities, including:
- Activities room
- Salon and spa
- Movie theater
- Art studio
- Interactive kitchen
But if that’s just not enough, all residents can benefit from our busy Vineyard Senior Living activity calendar that changes monthly.
If you’re curious about the cost breakdown for all these benefits, don’t hesitate to reach out to our team for a comprehensive overview. In short, the base rental rate includes the apartment, access to amenities, transportation for outings, utilities, onsite activities, and all meals. Then, the monthly rate is flexible so that residents can choose a plan tailored to their needs.
Personalized Living vs. Assisted Living
Though they might sound similar, there are significant differences between personalized living and assisted living. Personalized living is best suited for residents who do not require daily assistance. They can handle all of the chores and duties of everyday life but simply want more convenience and flexibility in their schedule.
This choice is best for those looking to continue living independently and maintain an active lifestyle—all while downsizing and becoming part of a senior community.
On the other hand, assisted living requires more hands-on support from community staff. Assisted living offers support to residents who need help with daily activities like dressing, cooking, or managing medication.
In many assisted living communities, staff members have medical training and are on-call for any emergency. Residents at assisted living also have on-site medical services, so they do not have to travel far for routine medical care. While residents in personalized living certainly have access to the medical services they may need, it is offered in a more hands-off approach and only when necessary.
Benefits of Personalized Living
Personalized living offers an independent lifestyle for people looking to enjoy their retirement to the fullest. We typically break down the core benefits into three main categories:
Personalized living allows older adults to continue their day-to-day routines while benefiting from Vineyard’s sense of community. Residents have access to services like housekeeping, which can free up their time for things they enjoy most. With on-site dining, you can also plan to spend less time grocery shopping and cooking. And with access to several forms of entertainment and social opportunities, you don’t have to leave the community to have fun.
Even healthy seniors in the safest neighborhoods are at risk. Accidents happen, and it is not uncommon for unwanted visitors to target older adults. Our community offers security measures to ensure no one is onsite who shouldn’t be there. Vineyard Senior Living’s security will give peace of mind to you and your family.
Personalized living encourages wellness for residents at every level, including physical, mental, and emotional well-being. The T.H.R.I.V.E. program at Vineyard aims to promote healthy lifestyles that are:
In personalized living, you’ll have every opportunity you need to get physical exercise, interact socially with peers, learn new skills, connect with your community, and more.
