50 marks the beginning of the ‘golden years’ of the lives of seniors! To begin with, age brings wisdom. By the time those grey strands show up, they’ve had their fair share of experiences. They’ve likely travelled around, hustled their way through life, started a family and made life-changing decisions. All they really want to do is, move away from the crowds and the city’s pollution to somewhere with more nature and less concrete.
Gone are the days when children were ridiculed for putting their parents into a “home”. Seniors are now opting to optimize the time leading up to and post retirement, and live their best possible years. There has been a positive shift in perception from waiting for or nearing the end to embracing a whole new period in your life- retirement has now become a dream!
Assisted living provides a community setting for seniors to live the best years of their lives. With recreational, health and utility services in place, seniors can now enjoy care, support and company at their convenience.
Assisted Living is here to stay and here’s why
• There has been a shift in perception The stigma that used to be attached to retirement homes is now fading away. Seniors are now actively choosing assisted living and senior living homes as a lifestyle choice. Nuclear families and NRIs are refusing to leave their parents alone and seeking to find the best options for them to seek support, as well as enjoy their time. The best assisted living spaces provide a perfect blend of housing, hospitality, healthcare and leisurely activities.
. There is an increasing scope in India’s senior living sector With improved healthcare facilities and an increased life expectancy, the senior population in India is booming and will continue to do so.
