Live smaller and smarter, pursue passions in 2019

Willow Valley Communities offers boomers many amenities, security of Lifecare

For many, by now most New Year’s resolutions have lost their spark. The big goals of losing weight, getting in shape, and organizing finances and possessions have for the most part, fallen by the wayside.

But not for baby boomers. When it comes to resolutions regarding plans for relocation, real estate and retirement, many baby boomers — those born between 1946 and 1964 — have seen the start of 2019 as an opportunity to explore an entirely new way of life. They see the new year as the perfect time to reflect and consider the where, as well as the how, of their future living situations.

Will this be the year to retire? Downsize? Move? What is the plan for the future? Boomers today can expect to live longer and in much better health than ever before, and they are discovering they don’t want to spend their time working on maintaining a big house filled with many possessions. They find that now, more than ever, they would much rather spend their time pursuing passions and creating memories from experiences with those they love. But they must also protect the assets they worked so hard for.

With all this to consider, the new year is the perfect time for boomers to resolve to make some life changes — and stick to them. Getting rid of the bloated space and extra clutter in their homes means freeing themselves to engage more fully in this time of life — with a goal of pursuing passions in retirement, without worrying about the future.

Many residents of Willow Valley Communities, a premier 55-plus senior living community in Lancaster, have enthusiastically embraced this mindset with the added security of Lifecare. Lifecare is a unique and financially smart type of contract that means there are no additional fees if personal care, skilled nursing care or memory support is needed later.

Willow Valley Communities is the only exclusively Lifecare community in Lancaster County and strikingly different from other communities that often charge a daily rate which can quickly deplete assets.

Willow Valley Communities offers peace of mind and greater long-term security for hard-earned assets, making it a wise investment for Lancaster area boomers and their families.
