5 Ways Seniors Live and Age Well at Aspired Living of La Grange

Senior living these days is definitely “not your grandma’s nursing home!” While the idea of going into “senior housing” was often a “no-go” to previous generations, seniors these days have seemingly endless options to help them live the retirement lifestyle they deserve.

“Previous generations didn’t really have any options when it came to senior living,” says Terri Geppner, Director of Community Relations at Aspired Living® of La Grange. “For many, it was a place of last resort when they couldn’t live at home safely or didn’t have family members to care for them. However, over the past few decades, senior living has undergone a transformation. These days, the experience is all about you and your needs. Many seniors liken it to being at a five-star resort that you never have to leave.”

A big part of this societal shift has to do with – you guessed it – the Baby Boomer generation. Now that this generation is retiring and looking to senior living, they’re making waves in a big way. 

“Seniors today are redefining what ‘aging’ means, and they’re ready to enjoy everything that their retirement years have to offer,” says Geppner. “They generally don’t want to just sit back and let the world pass them by. Instead, they’re demanding high-end amenities, opportunities for fun, fine dining and so much more. Our new senior living community, Aspired Living of La Grange, was designed with the modern senior in mind to help aging adults live and age well.”

How Today’s Seniors Can Live and Age Well at Aspired Living® of La Grange
Here are some of the benefits that Aspired Living® of La Grange offers area seniors who are searching for their next adventure:

1. You can spend your time as you like. 
Aging doesn’t mean you have to slow down. In fact, many seniors find that they become more active and engaged in life than ever when they move to a senior living community like Aspired Living® of La Grange. At our senior living community, residents enjoy a maintenance-free lifestyle. No more cleaning, cooking, laundry or home repairs ... we take care of everything. That means you have all the time you like to start a new hobby, pick up an old one, volunteer or take part in one of our many outings, events or activities. We offer day trips, outings to area attractions, lifelong learning opportunities and so much more. 

2. You’ll make friends and be social – every day. 
We’re starting to see a surge of seniors who are moving to senior living communities before they “need it.” Surprised? Well, this is because these communities are, well, communities! Assisted Living at La Grange provides an immediate home filled with “family members” who are in the same stage of life as you and share your interests, passions and hobbies. You’ll make and see friends at our fine dining room, at swing dancing lessons, outside on the patio as you take your daily walk and everywhere else. You can be as social as you like, and find so many people to go on adventures with!

3. Enjoy everything you need for true independence.
Almost all of the modern day options for senior living revolve around the idea of choice. This means that seniors want to choose between different levels of care, dining options, residential finishes and much more. Best of all, you’ll have peace of mind knowing that you’ll always have all the help and assistance you need in order to live as independently as possible. Aspired Living® of La Grange offers Independent Living, Assisted Living and Memory Support services on campus, so you’ll be able to age in place safely and comfortably. 

4. Stay well with a focus on whole-body health. 
When we feel good, we do good. Today’s seniors prioritize staying fit and healthy in order to continue doing the things they love for as long as possible. At Aspired Living® of La Grange, our VIVA!SM programming (designed by Pathway to Living®, our parent company) is dedicated to keeping you well across all seven dimensions of wellness. Stay physically fit at our state-of-the-art fitness center. Feed your soul (and your body) with our healthy, fine dining options. Nourish your mind with classes and opportunities to enjoy life. You’ll find so many ways to stay fit and help you live your best life possible. 

5. Enjoy fine dining options that will please every palate. 
Say goodbye to frozen foods and tasteless pre-made food. Today’s senior demands fresh, healthy, varied and delicious food – and they want options. Aspired Living® of La Grange rises to the occasion thanks to our professional in-house chef, kitchen staff and nutritionist. We use only the freshest ingredients in our cooking, and work with local vendors to deliver farm-to-market, locally sourced items for our residents to enjoy.
