How to Enjoy Retirement

When we move into our home we rarely think, “How will it age with me?”… -       Will I always be able to easily get around independently; going upstairs and downstairs? -       How will I be able to keep up with yard work?  Exterior home maintenance? -       If my spouse or I encounter mobility issues, will we have enough space in our home to navigate throughout the home?  With wheelchairs or walkers? As we stay busy throughout the years, these questions often don’t get asked until it’s too late.  Chances are if we are inquiring about a walk-in tub or wheelchair ramp - it’s because we now have a need for them. We have choices – in fact, TOO MANY! One option is to start the difficult project(s) to modify our current home.  This could require complicated DIY activity to install the necessary mobility equipment, or hiring a contractor or company to outfit the home with what is needed.  These projects can easily cost $$ (think, 5 figures), and may bring down the resale values of our homes – as they are now modified for specialty usages. Another option is to move into a retirement community.  But not just any retirement community will do...

Cornerstone Homes provide spacious, well-kept neighborhoods with homes designed to age with an active adult lifestyle.  Active Adult Communities are designed and are for adults, ages 55+.

The homes feature modern luxuries with a focus on practical living.  Homes are designed and built with open spaces and floorplans. Doorways are built wide, which helps moving in and getting new furniture in the house!  Best of all, Cornerstone Homes are single story. Cornerstone Homes are also maintenance free – so say ‘goodbye’ to yard work!  You can also count on your neighbors yard looking nice and presentable as well, as Cornerstone Homes maintain all landscaping on-site. So now we can enjoy our retirement!  Have the family over, start those hobbies and projects we’ve always wanted to, and living life like we imagined. Should an aging crisis occur, our home is prepared to prolong our independence and quality of life.
