According to the Population Reference Bureau’s “Aging in the United States” bulletin, Baby Boomers – adults born between 1946 and 1964 – are reshaping America’s older population. For starters, the number of American adults that are 65 and older is projected to increase to 95 million by 2060. Secondly, they are redefining retirement.
If you’ve started to plan your future as an active, older adult, you’re not alone! But if you’re wondering how to truly enhance your retirement lifestyle, it’s time to consider the benefits of senior living in Franklin, Indiana.
Whether you’re looking for senior living for yourself or a family member, Astral at Franklin invites you to discover a community where life begins again! With our new and refreshing approach to personalized care, we’re committed to helping residents achieve a higher quality of purposeful living every day.
Connecting with friends and family is vital as we age for mental wellness and our quality of life. Social connections can lead to better personal habit forming, improved overall health and have been shown to reduce the risks of early onset dementia, as well as other health issues.
One study found that joining interest groups, volunteering in the community or simply getting together with friends lowered the risk of serious health conditions like heart disease, depression and Type-2 diabetes.
Our senior living community in Franklin understands how vital it is to create strong connections with those around us. Astral at Franklin’s fitness classes, social and activity groups and planned special events give residents ample opportunities to form friendships in our community.
Homeowners face many challenges, especially when it comes to the upkeep and general maintenance of their houses. Making repairs, replacing outdated appliances and doing strenuous yardwork can take up valuable time. In addition, the older we get, the more challenging it can become, or the more we just don’t want to worry about it.
When you live in a senior living community, staff handle any maintenance issues or needs that might arise – no more mowing the lawn, shoveling the driveway or replacing the dishwasher!
When you decide to move into one of our beautiful, spacious senior apartments at Astral at Franklin, our team is dedicated to making sure you feel at home. We also want to ensure that your personal living space is taken care of so that you have more time to focus on your own lifestyle without the worries of home maintenance!
For most of our adult lives, we spend our time raising children, focusing on our careers and ensuring we have a solid foundation for our families. It’s incredibly fulfilling to build our livelihoods, but we often lose our connections to the hobbies and passions we developed when we were younger.
Post-retirement is a wonderful time to re-discover the things that filled our hearts and souls with joy! For instance, some of us set aside our dreams of being a musician or a painter to focus on other aspects of our lives simply because there wasn’t enough free time. When you decide to move to a senior living community in Franklin, your schedule is free to concentrate on these activities! It’s also a wonderful time to pick up new hobbies and re-discover old passions.
