You’ve decided that it’s time to downsize. You’re ready to pack up your home and move to a vibrant community of adults just like you. Congratulations! This is an exciting time! But as exciting as it is, choosing the right community for you can be a daunting task. Dunwoody Pines Retirement Community in Dunwoody, Georgia, has these tips for you as you’re looking for the perfect retirement community to call home.
Establish Your Budget
Before you choose with a community, it’s important to know how much you’re willing to spend per month. There is no worse feeling than falling in love with a community that is out of your price range. And as you’re crunching your numbers, keep in mind what is included in each community’s cost. Some communities, like Dunwoody Pines, are all-inclusive, meaning that your living space, meals, utilities, activities, and amenities are all included in your monthly expenses. Some communities may separate these expenses. Ensure that you have an accurate picture of what your living space, meals, utilities, and miscellaneous expenses are going to cost you at each community you’re interested in.
Choose the Best Location
Anywhere you live, location is key. It’s important to choose a retirement community that is in a convenient location close to everything you need or visit regularly. Ensure that you’ll have easy access to your physician, shopping, restaurants, and any community sites you enjoy. Dunwoody Pines is conveniently located just minutes from all the shopping, restaurants, and cultural highlights of Atlanta, making the community both convenient and scenic.
Consider the Community’s Activities and Features
One of the many benefits of downsizing to a retirement community is being surrounded by your peers in a fun, friendly environment. If you choose the right community, you’ll be able to make new friends, enjoy daily activities, and take advantage of resort-style amenities. Check with the communities you’re interested in to see whether they organize activities for their residents, and what types of activities are regularly on the calendar. Also consider what additional amenities are available, such as a pool, library, and outdoor areas.
At Dunwoody Pines, residents can enjoy the on-site hair salon, library, gym, pool, and computer center. In addition, the community offers local transportation for shopping trips, doctor’s appointments, cultural events, and more.
