While you certainly enjoy the freedom created by doing less work, in reality, retirement is a perfect time to do as much as you like. Ask any of the residents at a Teman community, and they’ll likely tell you the same thing:
With less maintenance, housework, and daily commuting on the calendar, you’ll find more time to spend with new and old friends, pursue your passions, catch up with family, and explore the world around you.
Catherine, one of our resident’s daughters, can’t speak highly enough:
“My widowed father lives there, and I visit him as often as I can. I am happy that he lives in a wonderful place, where everyone looks out for each other! He is doing more activities than me, and I feel happy he is in a safe happy place. Enjoy your new venture!”
But the idea of moving into a lifestyle village can often seem daunting, draining, or outright difficult, and there are scores of questions we receive about the process and experience.
You might be wondering things like:
- How do I downsize?
- What’s it like to move in?
- How do I make friends?
- What is it like living in a retirement village?
- How active and social can I be?
While there are quick answers to some frequently asked questions over on our FAQ page, sometimes it’s best to hear from people who have already begun their next chapter.
