Choosing the Right Senior Living Floor Plan for Your Lifestyle

One of the first questions you may ask yourself when looking for a senior living home is whether you can transition into a new space that meets your needs.

In what ways would you like your new home to be different from your current one? What kind of living space will make your life easier, more convenient and the most fulfilling?

Answering these kinds of questions will help you reliably narrow down the number of senior living community options that fit your lifestyle.

In your search for the perfect senior apartment floor plan, it’s important to choose with intention. Here are some tips on how to choose a senior living floor plan that fits your natural, independent rhythm and meets your needs with plentiful amenities.

Your Personal Needs

Consider how your personal preferences and lifestyle will be accommodated by the senior independent living floor plans you’re researching.

As a resident of a senior living community like The Merion, you can choose to cook in your apartment or take advantage of the community’s meal services or take a short walk downtown, where you’ll find plenty of vibrant and fun dining options. You should also consider how you will entertain guests, making sure the bathroom is easily accessible, and that the floor plan has the space you need.

Storage Space

Downsizing feels great and frees you up to do more of what you love. Before you transition into your new apartment, remember that you might not have as much storage space as you once did.

By keeping those things you need and discarding what you don’t, you’ll be able to make the most of your living space. You should also consider the size of the closets in the bedroom, as well as the cupboards in the kitchen and laundry room where extra storage may be needed.

Square Footage

Think about the space you want for entertaining, hobbies and daily living, in addition to basics like the bedroom and bathroom. Senior living accommodations in your apartment are designed to enhance convenience and quality of life. Living in a community gives you access to a full suite of services and amenities. Square footage becomes just a number when The Merion’s your oyster!
