Choosing the Right Independent Living Floor Plan

As you consider a move to an independent living community, you’re likely thinking about how this move will help you to live life purposefully. With a better idea of what to expect from senior housing, you can match the attributes of a potential new home to your retirement ambitions. 

“As you select senior housing, you don’t have to make compromises,” says Judy Given, Senior Director of Campus Development at Abe’s Garden Community. “The senior living options we offer can help you foster the retirement lifestyle you’ve always wanted.”

This guide will help you determine what’s important to you in a senior living apartment and discover the perfect residence at Abe’s Garden Community.

Abe’s Garden Community Independent Living Options

Abe’s Garden Community offers various residential options for independent living. Whether you want a comfortable studio, a quaint one-bedroom unit, or a spacious two-bedroom apartment, there’s a living option for you

  • Optional balconies overlooking wooded property

  • 9-foot ceilings

Choose a floor plan that fits your lifestyle. 

Think about your habits, hobbies and needs. What kind of square footage and floor plan support the kind of retirement you want? 

If you enjoy having friends over to watch games, or hosting your book club, your living room might be most important to you. Abe’s Garden Community offers large and deluxe floor plans with spacious rooms that can accommodate guests. 

If you have a hobby like quilting and need storage, a passion like painting and need a studio, or a love for an instrument and need a place to practice, the two-bedroom apartment options could come in handy. These floor plans also offer space that can be used to host overnight guests and store larger items.

For some senior living residents, a smaller footprint might be better. Paring down and starting fresh in a new place can be a relief and can help you clear the way for the simplified retirement you desire. 

Consider the community.

It’s important to have comfortable senior housing that supports your lifestyle and needs, but the most profound benefits of senior living come with the community’s services, amenities and activities.
