How the Best Rated Senior Living Communities are Helping Meet the Social Needs of Elders?
Mrs. Murthy, a retired professor, lives in one of the best rated senior living communities in Chennai. For her, moving to the community was the best decision she ever made. She lived in a big house with a garden and often felt quite lonely. When her sons moved to Canada, she decided the time had come for her to move to a place where she can enjoy her time pursuing new hobbies. She began her search for an easier and more manageable lifestyle in a retirement community. Today, she lives a worry-free life in a senior living community where she spends most of her time attending yoga classes and learning Carnatic music. She’s made new friends and has travelled with them to new and exciting places. She says, “I am very happy with my life here. I am travelling to different places, learning new skills and have made many friends. My grandkids who currently stay overseas love to visit me here.”
