Senior living has transformed over the last few decades, and the population of older adults is growing at a rapid rate. In fact, it’s estimated that by the year 2050, the number of adults over the age of 65 will nearly double.

This generation has redefined many aspects of American culture during their lifetime – art, music, politics and more. Now, as they reach their older years, they’re continuing to make strides by redefining senior living. 

While many senior living communities offer apartment-style living, amenities, and daily meals, luxury senior living communities kick it up a notch, creating an environment that’s comparable to living in a resort.

At The Woodlands at Canterfield, our mission is to enhance the lives of our residents. Our brand-new senior living community in West Dundee, Illinois, is truly a destination with gracious hospitality, exquisite on-site dining, and a commitment to opulent living. 

If you are ready to take the next step toward enhancing your lifestyle, here’s our complete guide to luxury senior living!

Define Luxury Senior Living

Communities that promote a luxurious lifestyle offer living spaces that feel like home, with the added benefit of style and refinement. The services that come along with apartment-style living are similar to that of a hotel or a resort; luxury senior living is maintenance-free, so residents don’t have to worry about home improvements or upkeep – giving them more time to focus on what matters to them. 

Amenities are one of the more significant benefits of luxury senior living and can include fitness centers, on-site spas and hair salons, and restaurant-quality dining. From housekeeping to enriching health programs, there’s a benefit and convenience for every lifestyle.

The Woodlands at Canterfield is proud to offer luxurious, resort-style living in the beautiful town of West Dundee, Illinois, and is deeply rooted in the area’s history. Our distinctive elegance truly shines through in our beautiful common spaces, exquisite cuisine, and life-enhancing wellbeing programs; whatever you do at The Woodlands, you’ll do it with style!

Who Should Consider Luxury Senior Living?

With the right financial stability, this type of community’s high-end lifestyle is a great way to enhance a healthy aging plan.

While the services and amenities are great for active seniors looking to enjoy their retirement years, those who require assisted living or memory care can also thrive. These communities offer compassionate, personalized care plans for those living with dementia or those who need extra assistance with activities of daily living.

What to Look for in a Community

When touring any living space, there’s more to consider than extravagant common spaces or five-star dining. After all, you’re searching for a home! It’s important to consider the benefits of living in a community that offers varying levels of care. Not only can this come in handy in case of emergencies or health problems, but it can also minimize the likelihood of switching communities or moving in the future. 

It’s also crucial to consider the community’s proximity to family and friends, whether to keep in touch through regular visits or to have a support system away from the community. Make sure that your community is also close to high-quality hospitals or other healthcare facilities in case of arising health concerns. While these communities care and support, you must consider emergencies where an outsourced facility is needed. 

Find out the rent structure of the communities that you tour, as well as their acceptance of insurance policies. If you’re still unsure if a community is a good fit for you and your lifestyle, ask if they offer trial runs where you can dip your feet and test the waters before making a major move.
