The Secret Reason Why Older Adults Find the Senior Living Lifestyle So Fulfilling

May 11, 2020

If you’ve been on the Internet at all over the past few years, you’ve probably seen plenty of those attention-grabbing “One Weird Trick to Fix Everything!” or “Experts Hate This Woman!” advertisements. The idea of learning a secret that will give you all the things you’ve ever wanted (plus a bag of chips) is pretty darned tempting.

But there are some “secrets” as to how to make life as fulfilling as possible … particularly if you’re a senior of a certain age. What is it? Well, it’s really not all that secret or surprising … the answer can be found in the senior living lifestyle.

“We’ve heard time and time again from our residents that they wish they’d moved to our amazing senior living community sooner,” says Angel Van Horn, Community Relations Specialist at Park Manor, the most trusted retirement community in Nashville, TN. “We know that a lot of people still think that a retirement community is a nursing home or giving up your freedom, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Residents who call Park Manor home know that moving to a senior living community isn’t giving up at all … in fact, it’s opening yourself up to new possibilities and new options that you never before were able to enjoy!”

This change isn’t new, but because the baby boomers are starting to retire in droves, we’re seeing a seismic shift in what “retirement” and “senior living” means these days. “The boomers want their retirement to be exciting, fulfilling and enjoyable, and the senior living space is rising to the challenge,” says Angel. “At Park Manor, we’ve already been helping our residents live the good life and love where they live, because we believe this is the time in your life to experience, to dream, to enjoy and explore. And that’s no secret!


A Fulfilling Retirement Lifestyle

What does “fulfillment” mean in terms of senior living? Well, that just depends on what “happiness” looks like to you. For some people, this could mean saying goodbye to chores and living a carefree lifestyle in a maintenance-free community. Other seniors may wish for a residence where they can truly age in place, knowing that no matter how their health needs or abilities change, they’ll always be cared for. Others want the camaraderie that comes from living with a community of like-minded individuals. And some – like the residents of Park Manor – want all of that, and more!

Here are some of the “secret reasons” why older adults find the senior lifestyle at Park Manor to be so fulfilling.


Inspiration every day.

Who says you have to slow down in retirement? One of the best parts about this time of your life is that you actually have the time … the time to chase your dreams, find what inspires you and gives you the opportunity to chase it. At Park Manor, inspiration is everywhere you look. From fun activities to inspiring events, day trips, art classes and so much free time to do what you want … it’s everything a senior adult could want and more!

Maintenance-free living.

Does anyone really want to spend their retirement years doing boring chores like raking the lawn or cleaning the house? At Park Manor, you can leave all that worry behind … we’ll take care of all the tasks. Leave behind the stress of home repairs, maintenance and cleaning. Forget about the cooking and the dishes. We’ve taken care of all of that. Now is the time to focus on you … and Park Manor is the perfect place to do it. Relax – you’ve earned this!


Health and wellness for aging well.

Everyone wants to feel happy, healthy and content … no matter how old or young we are. It’s a lot easier to enjoy life when we feel physically, mentally and emotionally healthy, so Park Manor places a high importance on health and wellness at every age.
