Myth Vs Truth about Senior Living Community

Most of us have a brief idea about house for senior citizen. Many believe that a retirement home is similar to a nursing home or an old age home. But both of them are very different options for older adults.  

Today retired homes focus hugely on an excellent senior lifestyle. Families of retired people often visit Manasum which helps them to debunk the myths which they have believed about a senior community lifestyle. 

Here are some of the myths debunked with realities and many of these myths are created due to bad experiences at poorly maintained senior living communities. 

Myth – I’ll Lose My Independence at a Senior Living Community.

Reality – Many people have the misconception of living independently with living on their own. Life in a retired home can be as independent as you want it. Retired people don’t have any restrictions on where they can go or what they can do. Retirement communities like Manasum are filled with amenities and activities that give you infinite possibilities for fun and relaxation your way.

Myth – Retirement Home Is More Expensive Than Living at Home.

Reality – People looking into retirement homes are often surprised by the monthly fees or overall rates. But the costs completely depend upon the size of the apartment and the levels of care you choose.
