Perhaps your priorities have changed. You no longer want to spend your free time mowing the lawn. Maybe your neighbors have retired and moved on and you don’t have anything in common with the new, young neighbors. Maybe you just want to free yourself from the responsibilities of home ownership.
Or it could be that you’ve been downsizing recently and thinking seriously about the next few decades of your life. Perhaps the kids have talked to you about finding a place that’s more manageable. It could even be that some of your old colleagues have moved into a retirement community and are urging you to do the same.
Whatever your reasons for considering a move, today’s seniors want to live independently, in a community that’s safe, comfortable, engaging and, most of all, supportive. The Independent Living Cottages at Highgrove at Tates Creek may be the answer you’re looking for.
Highgrove’s newly constructed Independent Living Cottages offer all of the amenities today’s seniors demand, including energy efficiency, hardwired security systems with emergency response pendants; accessible, modern baths with walk-in showers; stainless steel appliances; and modern finishes that are low-maintenance.
“Every aspect of the Independent Living Cottages at Highgrove has been carefully thought out, every detail planned,” said Davonna Saier, Community Relations Director for Highgrove. “The Cottages incorporate the latest ideas and newest technology available in independent living housing for seniors,” she noted.
Residents can sit on the front porch sipping a glass of tea in the summer time, interact with their neighbors and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere at Highgrove. Inside, the cottages feature large windows that allow natural light to flood the space, keeping everything bright and airy year-round.
The Cottages’ design ensures that each resident enjoys privacy, with the only common walls in the connecting garages. Although Cottage residents never have to pay a utility bill, cottages are lit with LEDs; windows, walls and exterior doors are insulated; and each cottage has its own heating and cooling system, allowing occupants to adjust the temperature to suit their personal tastes.
Highgrove’s Independent Living Cottages are pet-friendly, something that many find pleasantly surprising. “We know how important pets are to seniors,” Saier said. “It’s something seniors worry about. They would rather struggle in a home that’s no longer safe for them than give up a pet they’ve had for years. At Highgrove, they don’t have to make that choice.”
The open floor plan gives a sense of spaciousness and accessibility, while maximizing storage and work areas. There’s an in-suite laundry room off the kitchen; a storage closet in the garage; double closets in the master bedroom; and a linen closet in the master bath.
The one-car garage is large enough to accommodate a full-size vehicle, with a little extra storage in the back. Not that you’ll need it – Highgrove takes care of all landscaping and maintenance, so you won’t need a lawn mower, snow shovel, hose, ladder or any of that!
“As beautiful as the Cottages are, the atmosphere here is even better,” Saier said. “The Highgrove staff truly care about each and every resident. They know them by first name, know their children and grandchildren and look after everyone, whether they are living in the Cottages or in the main building, like family.”
Whether you’re a social butterfly, or someone who is a little more reserved, Highgrove offers social and recreational activities for everyone. There are trips to regional landmarks and restaurants, special nights and activities around the holidays, and a wide array of social activities. Transportation is available and Cottage residents can take advantage of restaurant-style dining in the main building.
“At Highgrove, we believe you should love where you live,” Saier said. “Our Independent Living Cottages, our staff, and our community of interesting and interested people make it easy to love Highgrove!”
