— Stefanee Wright

I came to the Continental at the request of a dear friend. It has been a very good and wise move for me. My life was in a depressed state after losing most of my family and a lot of my friends. All that changed when I moved to The Continental I now have many friends and extended family that has added a lot of happiness to my life.

— Fran Collins

The Continental – All-inclusive Retirement Community in South Austin

Great Floor Plans and Amenities at The Continental

Senior apartments for rent Austin such as The Continental are extremely unique in how they set themselves up for the comfort of retirees. The reality is conventional homes do not offer the amenities and creature comforts offered by Austin retirement homes. There are many reasons why senior living in Austin is replete with amazing floor plans designed with seniors in mind, but perhaps the most important is comfort. Seniors often move to Austin senior living because they are unable to stay in the dwelling they called home for many years due to physical or financial limitations.

The good news for retirees is when you decide to call The Continental home, you are getting into one of the best Austin senior homes. There are several reasons this is the case. When it comes to simple things like ensuring retirees are living in comfort, The Continental proves to be the best Austin senior center thanks to the living arrangements it offers. There are six different floor plans, and depending on the needs of a retiree, you can get exactly what you need so that you are living your most comfortable life.

Each of the three floor plans offer more amenities as residents commit to spending more on their housing. This is not unusual. The good news is Medicare and Medicaid often cover a significant portion of this expense. This means you can live off social security, pension, and have a sizable housing allowance while experiencing the best in Austin senior living.

The floor plans themselves are fairly interesting. There are several commonalities including how the bedrooms have walk-in closets and aside from the economical floor plan, all have tubs. Furthermore, the four least expensive units are between 500-600 square feet. While this may seem small, for a retiree this is an excellent size because it minimizes the amount of space that needs to be maintained. The ease of access for the washer and dryer along with the air handler makes this Austin TX retirement community a perfect place to spend your golden years.

The key to these floor plans, despite the smaller size, is the wide open areas. Many retirees have different needs when it comes to getting around. These needs include using medical equipment in the home. Some retirees require walkers or wheelchairs. This is an area where the conventional home is not appropriate for someone to live in. These homes are not adapted for this type of equipment, and as such the door spaces are smaller, which essentially closes off the home.

When designing these floor plans for Austin TX assisted homes, it is clear the needs of the retirees who would be living in these domiciles were taken into account. What’s notable about how the kitchens and bathrooms are arranged is the ease of access to everything. The kitchens are all the open concept that is currently trendy but they keep the space relatively small and everything essential nearby. The refrigerator is not too far from the stove and the pantry closet is quite close as well. For a retiree who enjoys preparing meals, this is an excellent arrangement.

The bathroom is similarly appointed as well. Keeping the toilet and sink on one side while having the bathtub/shower on the other side is a brilliant way to maximize space in that particular room. These bathrooms are a bit larger than the conventional bathroom as well, allowing retirees to move freely in the room.

Finally, when looking at the bedroom and living room, what stands out is the effective use of space. For retirees, this allows them to decorate these rooms as they see fit. The best part is by keeping these spaces open, the functional aspects of the units are subtle. These floorplans don’t feel like those of an Austin retirement center, instead they feel like any other residential unit.

There are many reasons to consider moving to retirement homes Austin TX. Chief among those reasons is the way these units are structured. Instead of the quirky nature of conventional house floorplans, these units are designed with the over 55 resident in mind. Whether it is someone looking to scale down their dwelling or someone in need of assisted living, it is important that people have the living arrangements best suiting their needs.

Making the choice to live in The Continental is a brilliant one. Thanks to the arrangements of these floorplans, seniors can get the care they need while still having the freedom to move about their home with ease.
