Ah, the golden years. What could be better than kicking back with your partner and enjoying the things you love most together?
Enjoying them together in a Life Plan senior living community, that’s what.
A Life Plan senior community is a wonderful environment to kick back and enjoy the golden years with the one you love.
For couples living at a senior community, the time that used to be spent mowing the lawn or scrubbing the spare bathroom in their own home is instead spent together playing cribbage or listening to live music. The time once spent driving to doctor appointments, arranging for in-home care, and worrying about changing medical needs can now be spent sitting hand-in-hand on the sofa next to one another, sipping a cup of coffee and catching up on the news.
“At a Life Plan senior community, people always come first.”
For a couple, there’s nothing better than having your community care about your partner just about as much as you do. When it comes to quality time together and maximizing every day, a Life Plan community checks all the boxes. Here’s how a Life Plan community helps you fall in love all over again:
- Date nights done right.
Whether it’s an intimate dinner in the restaurant followed by a movie in the theater, or a milkshake and dancing by the jukebox in the café… everywhere you turn at a senior community, date night (or date day) options await. Many are free and reservations are optional. Perhaps best yet, you never have to worry about the weather or driving at night when the date is just a short walk down the hall!

- Less “to-dos.”
“Honey, sorry, I have to go shovel the sidewalk and then we can finish up our game,” said no one ever at a senior community. Kiss home maintenance goodbye by selecting an apartment at a senior community and enjoy more time for each other. While you’re at it, you can cut down on trips to the grocery store, (thanks to on-site restaurants), never again have to book home contractors (with a 24/7 maintenance team), and ditch your expensive gym membership in favor of working out together for free any time (love that on-site fitness center). The abundance of amenities and services means there’s more time --- for kayaking the Bark River, having a fierce Sheepshead card game competition, or heading to supper club night in the restaurant.

- More “I dos.”
Don’t take our word for it – we’ve seen it time and time again. People from all walks of life can find themselves as new neighbors in their golden years, and sometimes, sparks fly. Our pastor has officiated a handful of weddings, each one as joyous and filled with love as the next. Whether you are looking to renew your vows or you find love with a new partner, a senior living community is a great place to spend quality time together.

- His and hers time.
At a senior community, while there’s plenty of time for togetherness, you can’t underestimate a healthy dose of time apart. Whether it’s guy time or ladies nights, if he’s craving some time with the boys to attend a winter warmer bourbon tasting or go to men’s bible study, those opportunities are available! When she’s ready for a girls’ outing to the art studio or a game of Bunco, she doesn’t need to look any further than the activity calendar. Balancing time spent together and with friends builds a strong relationship.
Whether it's guy time or ladies' night, there are many opportunities for time together and apart at a senior community.

5. Different needs? No problem.
No two people age exactly the same. Needs change, but love doesn’t. One of the many perks of living at a Life Plan senior community is that just because both parties in a couple don’t have the exact same care needs, doesn’t mean they need to live miles apart. There are multiple levels of care offered in the same building or campus, providing the full spectrum of care for older adults in one location. At Three Pillars, it warms our heart to see couples with different care needs living just a short walk down the hall or across the river from each other. Where they may otherwise have needed a car and an extra hour to see one another, here at a Life Plan community, they’re just a hop and a skip away from enjoying lunch together every day.
Needs change as people age differently, but love never fails.
