Luxury is defined as the state of great comfort and extravagant living. As you probably know, what’s considered the height of luxury by one generation can be seen very differently by another. That’s why, if you’re evaluating different luxury senior living communities, it’s important to see what independent living services and amenities they currently offer and what they see as luxury senior living trends. That way you’ll know if they’re a good fit for you today and into the future.

 Trend Watch

As you consider your senior living options, here are the services and amenities to be on the lookout for:

Maintenance-free lifestyle. Luxury retirement communities, like Freedom Plaza, will give you more opportunity to follow your interests because they’ll take care of the responsibilities of home upkeep, lawn care and groundskeeping for you. You’ll no longer have to wait around for a service call either because our talented maintenance team can take care of everything.

Full social calendar. When you feel like hanging out with friends and neighbors, we offer a variety of opportunities, including:

  • Themed dinner parties
  • Weekly outings to Tampa, Sarasota and the beach
  • Over 45 interest groups and clubs
  • Volunteer opportunities
  • Group fitness and arts classes
  • Lifelong learning classes and lectures

Your life, your way. Even with a full calendar of activities, you do whatever makes you happy. To help, Freedom Plaza features a variety of executive-style amenities including:

  • Fitness center and state-of-the-art gym
  • Arts and crafts studio
  • 18-hole executive golf course and putting green
  • Pickleball and tennis courts
  • Billiards and game room
  • Heated indoor and outdoor pool, each with a hot tub
  • Woodshop
  • Resident flower and vegetable gardens
  • Library

A community of like-minded people. One of the best things about living at a retirement community is the sense of belonging. Staying socially active and making new connections is critical to maintaining good health.

Downsizing without downgrading. Luxury retirement communities put everything you need and desire within easy reach. Choose from a well-appointed and thoughtfully designed studio, one- or two-bedroom apartment home, knowing that where you live is just a place to rest between adventures.

A focus on wellness. An important part of enjoying life is being able to do what you want, when you want. That’s why at Freedom Plaza, we take a holistic approach to senior wellness with programs focused on your physical, emotional, spiritual, intellectual health and more.

Aging in place. As a Life Plan Community, Freedom Plaza offers a full continuum of care including assisted living, memory care, skilled nursing and rehabilitation right on-site. Instead of a disruptive move to a new community, you’ll get the support you need from people you know and trust.

Delightful dining. Our chef-led culinary team creates delicious meals using fresh seasonal ingredients that can accommodate special dietary needs. With multiple dining venues, you get to decide whether you’re in the mood for an elegant dinner or casual pub fare.

Warm hospitality. There’s something uplifting about being treated with courteous attention. Our emphasis on hospitality includes personal concierge services and warm greetings from staff members with a “can do attitude.”

Location is everything. Freedom Plaza is a golf cart community connected to Sun City Center. Recreation, entertainment, medical services, education and veteran support are all just a short ride away. Plus, we’re just minutes from the best of downtown Tampa, and a short drive from Sarasota and charming beach towns.

Bridging the generation gap. Intergenerational programs provide a wide variety of benefits to both older and younger generations. Older adults who connect with kids can have fewer falls, perform better on memory tests and burn more calories. Children involved in intergenerational programs are 46% less likely to start using drugs and develop better communication and problem-solving skills.

Furry friends welcome. If you plan on bringing your pet, you’ll want to choose a pet-friendly community that offers amenities for their comfort and safety.

Enjoy the Luxury of More Freedom

There are benefits to freeing yourself from household chores, but just as important is freeing yourself from worrying about the future. Freedom Plaza works hard to keep up with the latest luxury senior living trends including our executive-style amenities.  If you’re ready to learn more about everything our Life Plan Community offers you, contact one of our senior living representatives today.
