It’s the Season of Giving: Get Yourself the Gift of All-Inclusive Living

We call this time of year the Season of Giving for a good reason. Whether you're hunting for a gift to wow a loved one on your list, or you're volunteering at the city mission to serve holiday meals to hungry families, the emphasis we place on delighting and blessing others is a truly wonderful thing.  Still, we want to be sure you remember a very special person this season, so we'll ask—when physical presents are wrapped and donations of service are delivered, what gift will you give yourself?

If you're looking to unwrap joys that last through the holiday season and beyond, consider how the following comforts could change your everyday life for the better, then get ready to gift yourself an independent, all-inclusive retirement in the New Year.

Home-Cooked Meals Every Day

Imagine if you could unwrap a personal chef dedicated to creating delicious meals for you every day. No long grocery lists, no cumbersome trips to the store, and no extensive food prep or cleanup. That would be a Christmas miracle, right?

We probably can't fit a chef under your tree, but our Freedom Dining program is the next best thing. Our culinary team provides three fresh, healthy meals every day, and also offers flexibility for how and when you dine. With choices that include Casual Dining, Fine Dining, 24/7 Chef's Pantry, and even Meal Delivery, you can enjoy a delicious meal no matter what your plans are for the day. Heading out for an afternoon of shopping? Grab a quick lunch at the buffet before you go. Planning an anniversary date night? Sit down to a more formal experience complete with tableside service and a glass of wine.

If you love to cook, your apartment kitchen is waiting! However, Freedom Dining means the time and effort you spend in the kitchen can be transformed from necessity to creativity. You'll get to explore new recipes and techniques, and garnish every special occasion with your new and exciting dishes.

A House That Keeps Itself

Spending the holiday season cleaning house when you'd rather be enjoying holiday movies with your grandkids is the equivalent of filling your stocking with furniture polish and vacuum bags. Is there anything less fun? Think about the time and energy you put into dusting, vacuuming, scrubbing bathroom fixtures, and washing windows. Now picture the ways you could spend that time and effort on your family, your hobbies, or simply relaxing.

Among other built-in services, our Weekly Housekeeping schedule is a resident favorite for obvious reasons. Weekly housekeeping means no more stocking up on cleaning supplies, handling harsh chemicals, or bending over the side of the tub to scrub away soap scum.

Your time is valuable, and you deserve to spend it doing the things that bring you joy. What's more, your energy and effort are worthy of fun activities—the kind you may be missing out on when you're too tired from the everyday grind. If an apartment that always stays tidy and guest-ready isn't already on your gift list, we recommend adding it!

More of Life's Little Moments

Time and energy play a significant role in our everyday lives, and achieving more of life's little moments is made easier when you have both.  With a resort lifestyle that manages meal planning, cleaning, and an array of other daily to-do's, your schedule and energy levels are freed up for endless possibilities.

Our communities are filled with creative and talented residents with hobbies and pastimes that range from cross-stitching to beer crafting.  You may have a life-long hobby that you're excited to get back to in your retirement, or you may be looking for something new and fun to make you laugh or challenge your brain. When you unwrap your ticket to all-inclusive living, you get access to a calendar packed with activities and social events that make it easy to pursue new interests, meet new friends, and experience more of life's happy moments.

We're always thrilled when you can join us for one of our scheduled events like happy hours, movie nights, crafting groups, card clubs, and more. But if you want some of life's happy moments to be quiet time so you can catch up on your book queue, we can put a bow on that, too.

A Gift That Keeps Giving

The Season of Giving is filled with opportunities to create a little Christmas magic for those around us.  It's also the perfect time to reflect on your own wish list and to start planning for a retirement that can simplify your life and give you the time and energy to spend on yourself, your family, and the things you love most. It may not fit under the tree, but your future resort lifestyle is neatly wrapped in a convenient package, and we're pretty sure you won't want to re-gift it.
