Seniors Find “Easy Living” After Retirement at Silverado Village Placerville
Making the right decision about life after retirement requires careful consideration and thoughtful planning. The thought of moving out of a home after so many years may seem daunting, while the idea of a large estate with a lot of upkeep can sound unmanageable.
Many seniors in Placerville are making the decision to make life easier by downsizing and transitioning into a senior living community; a residential neighborhood that offers activities, health support opportunities, maintenance assistance, dining, housekeeping, and more. These communities can offer recreation and companionship, as well as, multi-level service approaches, so you can stay within a familiar setting if the time should ever arise that you require more assistance.

It features 113 newly constructed homes, which come in three different floor plans, and is nestled within a relaxing environment. All homes are single-story and range in size from 1,207 to 1,590 square feet.
