Why Choose Now? Embracing Independent Living Early

Contact Us

As a company that develops retirement communities, we talk extensively about the benefits of moving to communities like ours.  We are so authentically passionate about what we do that we want to shout the many physical, mental, social, spiritual and financial benefits from the rooftops. In fact, you can read more on the topics here, here, here, here, and (almost forgot our most recent blog) here.

But as much as we believe in what we do, our message sometimes gets lost because after all, we’re ‘selling’ the lifestyle – not living it.  So we thought we’d talk to a few people who ARE living it.

Hear From Those Who Live It

We’d like to first introduce you to Fred & Jean… Fred & Jean have taken a leap-of-faith with us and chosen to become some of the first residents to move into The Lodge at Truitt Homestead – opening in just a few, short months in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware.  They chose The Lodge for the following reasons:

  • Flexibility
  • Design
  • Location
  • Simplicity
  • Time
  • Security
  • The people

But don’t take our word for it… Hear directly from Fred & Jean:

Next, meet Susan and David… who have been living in an independent living community and loving the lifestyle it’s created for them. Michele, who you may know as The Lodge’s Community Relations Director, first met Susan and David at her previous community and became quick friends with them. They were happy to meet with us and share why they chose independent living, when they easily could have stayed at home in New Jersey or purchased in a 55+ community.  Their reasons include:

  • Flexibility
  • Simplicity
  • Security
  • Financial savings
  • A fresh start

But again, don’t take our word for it! Hear from Susan and David here:

Similar Reasons, Different Definitions

You’ll notice that many of their reasons for “choosing now” for an independent lifestyle are the same. Flexibility, security, simplicity, and more are all very common reasons for people to move to communities like ours. But defining what those reasons mean are unique to each and every person we talk to.

If you’ve been thinking about moving to an independent living community but don’t think it’s time.. Ask yourself, why not now? Why not choose to enjoy and embrace a lifestyle that will provide flexibility, security, simplicity, and SO MUCH MORE now? The longer you wait, the longer you’ll be missing out!

Welcome Home

Imagine you’ve come back from an extended vacation and the yard is still immaculate. You don’t have to worry about the food in your refrigerator because a short stroll brings you to a dining hall where you’ll savor every bite of a freshly cooked feast. 
Maybe your family visited and you are in need of some “me” time. A serene spa is a mere walk away. Receive a tranquil massage then meet some friends for a coffee,  just feet away from your own personal and upscale residence. 
You never need to worry about the roof leaking, you don’t have to hire lawn care maintenance. There is a place you only worry about the things you want to do, not the things that once haunted you with responsibility. You can be free to follow your own desires and rid yourself any trace of burdens. A place like this exists and is here with open arms, waiting to improve your daily life. A place such as Vantage Point Retirement Living.

Health options built for your body. A spa with your peace of mind at the forefront. Dining area where you can sit back and enjoy the meal without having to clean up afterwards.
