Why the Holiday Season is a Great Time to Move to a Lifestyle Community

People may believe that the winter months are the worst time to move. In reality, the holiday season is a great time of year to move into a lifestyle community. If you ever thought of moving to a lifestyle community, here are three reasons why the holiday season is a great time to make that change.

1Instant Community

The holidays mean spending quality time with others – but if you live by yourself or do not have family or friends nearby, the holidays can be a lonely time of year.

Spending the holidays at a lifestyle community, like Villa St. Benedict, will ease away loneliness. We foster a strong feeling of community and family by providing fun and engaging events, outings, and social activities. Spending the holiday season with others will lift up spirits and fill you with joy.

2Activities for Everyone

Attending activities is not only a fun way to spend your time, but it can also help keep your brain healthy. During the winter months, heading outdoors is more difficult, so people tend to spend more of their time at home. This decrease in social and physical activity can be detrimental for brain health.

Staying social can help reduce the risk of cognitive decline (according to the Alzheimer’s Association, www.alz.org). Activities such as holiday parties, plays, volunteering, and clubs are all available for residents at lifestyle communities.  Staying social can keep you healthier for longer.

3A Safer Holiday Season

Chicago winters are not to be taken lightly. The snow and ice can cause slips and falls while the cold can be uncomfortable or dangerous. Shoveling snow, putting up decorations, and heading outside during the winter months can be perilous.

Living in a lifestyle community can provide a safer environment and consistent warmth, safety, and activities during the holiday season. The maintenance-free apartments at Villa St. Benedict allow residents to attend and enjoy various events and dine at three different venues without needing to go outside. You'’'ll be able to spend your holidays in a safe and warm place surrounded by new neighbors and friends.
