Working into Retirement - How Independent Living Can Help

More and more individuals are choosing to continue to work into their retirement years. Whether they enjoy their job, want to pursue a new interest, or for financial reasons, the fact remains that working into retirement is becoming more common.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, as of 2015, 4.6 million men and 3.7 women age 65 and older were in the labor force. But just because individuals are choosing to continue working does not mean that they cannot also enjoy their retirement years. Independent living at Silver Comet Village in Powder Springs, Georgia, can help alleviate some of the stressors that come with owning a home and make the idea of working into retirement easier and more enjoyable.

Independent Living Enhances Independence

Senior living has evolved over the last few decades. Today’s senior living communities create welcoming and customized atmospheres that encourage wellness, connection, and healthy aging. 

Unfortunately, many people still think that senior living is too restrictive, but it’s just the opposite! Independent living communities offer options and features that enable residents to create their desired lifestyle and customize their senior living experience. Residents living in an independent living community are free to come and go as they please. With fewer day-to-day responsibilities, they can spend more time with friends, enjoying hobbies, volunteering, or working.

Silver Comet Village focuses on providing a senior living experience that enables individuals to create their idea of the perfect retirement lifestyle.

Less Responsibilities, More Possibilities 

No Home Maintenance

Regardless of age, no one wants to work all day only to come home to more work that needs to be done around the house. This is part of living in a private residence, but independent living communities take care of the home maintenance chores for you.

Imagine coming home after a long day at work and being able to relax or enjoy a hobby. This lifestyle is possible with independent living at Silver Comet Village in Powder Springs, Georgia.

Help with Cooking and Cleaning

While some people enjoy cooking and cleaning, what if you don’t feel like doing it after work? You still need to eat, and you still need to clean. Fortunately, independent living makes preparing yourself a meal and cleaning up afterward optional. Plus, all your meals will be delicious and healthy!

At Silver Comet Village, our residents enjoy freshly prepared, balanced, and nutritious meals every day, freeing up their time to do the things they enjoy. Click here to learn more about our dining experience.

Additionally, independent living can give you back your weekends. Housekeeping services enable residents to spend less time cleaning their homes and more time living their ideal lifestyle and enjoying retirement. 

Financial Consolidation

“Working during retirement means it's possible to keep your existing savings — and continue earning interest — while living off your extra income (statefarm.com).” Another way independent living can benefit your post-retirement career is by consolidating some of your monthly costs. 

Depending on your situation, you may still have a mortgage, utilities, groceries, and other expenses every month. Independent living communities can combine many of these costs (housing, dining, utilities, etc.) so that you are able to save more and spend less each month.
