Seniors Make the Move to Silverado Village in Placerville
Taking the step and choosing to move into a senior living community can be an exciting and difficult decision many people face after retirement. Some might think the best way to make such a major move is to wait until they are forced to do so. On the contrary, the time to move into a retirement community is when you are still independent and healthy so you can find the right place that fits your preferences and needs.
“A lot of baby boomers feel that they will lose their independence and freedom if they move into a senior-living community before they absolutely have to,” stated Silverado Homes’ Vice President, Steve Thinglum. “At Silverado Village Placerville it’s quite the opposite. Residents own their own home, have complete independence with the benefit of low to no maintenance and often find they have more activities to do than before their move, including new hobbies and social opportunities.”
Silverado Village Placerville is a senior living community that provides opportunities for its residents to grow and flourish at this exciting time in their lives. The community is known for its “easy living” philosophy and was designed with the needs of seniors in mind. It consists of 113 single-story homes, which come in three different floor plans and range in size from 1,207 to 1,590 square feet.
All homes were designed to fit the needs of seniors, with specific features such as:
- extra wide door openings
- no-step walk-in showers
- bench seat in the master bath shower
- lower-set microwave and cabinets for better accessibility
- emergency pull cords and remote pendants
Every home at Silverado Village is equipped with water conserving sinks and toilets, dual-pane windows, and programmable thermostats. All homes surpass the California energy efficiency requirements by 18%.
“By moving to Silverado Village before any illnesses or other issues occur, seniors are empowered and are truly making their own decisions about where they will live and relax,” continued Steve. “They can enjoy the freedom in a neighborhood that suits their lifestyle and is a great fit for them.”
Residents are also able to let go of some of the challenges that come with regular homeownership, such as yard work and maintenance, as communities like Silverado Village have a professional grounds crew that handles all of the landscaping. Residents can also have assistance with minor household issues, such as changing out air filters or replacing light bulbs.
The community features its own Village Center, where residents have priority access to a fully-equipped fitness center, a relaxing spa, and an indoor heated swimming pool. There is a multi-purpose room for community use, which can be used for seminars, arts and crafts, puzzles, card games, or even just enjoying some company. The Eskaton Lodge is also available to residents where one can have a delicious meal on-site or have one delivered to their home.
Silverado Village Placerville is set apart from other retirement communities. If or when the time arises, the community offers various services and care within the neighborhood. This multi-level service approach in Silverado Village includes assisted living apartments and memory care options, as well as physical therapy and more for homeowners, all within a familiar setting.
