So, you’ve decided it’s time to make the move to an independent living community, but how do you find the one offers you envision for your golden years? At Aviva – A Campus for Senior Life, we provide all the resources needed to enjoy the best years of your life in style. Not every senior life community is the same, but these guidelines will help you identify the campus that will keep you mentally and physically content.
Keep Your Independence
Independent living should be just that – the independence and ability to make your own decisions. Many campuses for senior life run on a buy-in model, which means you pay an up-front price and essentially purchase your home with the community. Our senior living campus features spacious studio, 1 bedroom and 2-bedroom apartments that are rented on a month-to-month basis. This gives you the security of a home with the freedom to leave if your needs change.
Find Your People
When finding the right senior living community, you have to remember the importance of the word “community”. Making new friends is one of the best parts about independent senior living and is important for staying happy and mentally healthy. Aviva features unique events and activities that make bonding with others over common interests a breeze. If you took a walk-through campus on any given day, you’d find residents sharing their interests in a variety of clubs, bonding over dinner or participating in one of our many curated activities. We make it easy to find your people.
Your golden years should be a time spent enjoying the activities you love most with the people you care about. Staying busy with fulfilling activities is important to mental health, so you should ensure the senior living community you choose has activities that you’ll want to participate in. At Aviva, we offer everything from exercise classes to crafting, outings to the theatre and mall, and so much more. One of the best parts about life at Aviva is that residents automatically gain access to the Meadows Country Club too. There, you can live luxuriously with access to 3 golf courses, fine dining, and access to even more fun to be had.
Live in the Center of it All
You’ll likely want to look for a community that has great on-campus amenities but is located in the middle of an area that has even more to offer. The Aviva campus is located in the heart of Sarasota, where there is always something going on. The area is home to the fabulous UTC Mall and St. Armand’s Circle for shopping and dining, beautiful beaches, theatres, museums and more.
Choosing the right independent living community is a decision that will impact your everyday life, so it’s important to feel confident in your choice. Our mission at Aviva is to provide you with everything you need to sit back, relax and think, “this is the right decision for me.”
