How We Keep You in Independent Living, Longer

Choosing a retirement community is a lot like choosing a dance partner. Some dance partners control the dance, moving you around where they want you. Others are so unpredictable you don’t know what they’ll do next. However, the best dance partners follow your lead and respond in a way that makes everything flow smoothly for you.

Live Your Life Your Way at Freedom Pointe

As a Life Plan Community, residents have the peace of mind of knowing they have access to higher levels of on-site care if ever needed. Of course, that also means providing you with ways to live an independent lifestyle on your terms, including:

Staying connected: We have a full calendar of social activities and group outings, including lifelong learning events, on-campus shows and concerts, an arts and crafts studio, a billiards and game room, 45+ interest groups and clubs, and energizing volunteer opportunities to help you build and maintain social connections.

Keeping active: Whether you’re meeting with a personal trainer at the fitness center, taking a group class, swimming laps or taking a water aerobics class in our heated indoor pool, joining friends for a round of golf on one of the dozens of area golf courses you have access to, walking your dog on our beautiful grounds, riding your bike on a bike path or hiking our nature trails, there are so many ways to stay active.

Enjoying delicious and nutritious meals: Our chefs and culinary teams use fresh seasonal ingredients for every meal, and we’re happy to accommodate special dietary needs, including vegetarian, heart-healthy and sodium-free.

Lifelong learning: Through our classes, lectures and discussion groups, you’ll have a chance to explore new skills and interests. They’ll also help you keep your mind active by creating more ways to inspire curiosity.

Life Plan Communities Help Boost Resilience

A higher level of happiness leads to greater resilience against stressors like financial worries, social situations or health concerns. Life Plan Communities help boost resilience because of the peace of mind they provide residents. Along with a healthy lifestyle, residents know that any health care needs they may have in the future will be tended to by skilled professionals. At Freedom Pointe, we even offer in-home care to help you stay in your independent living residence for as long as possible. This kind of peace of mind can’t be found anywhere else.

Life Plan Communities Are Designed to Promote Independence

Over 14 million adults 65 and older report falling each year. While not all falls result in an injury, about 37% of those who fall reported an injury that required medical treatment or restricted their activity for at least one day. Life Plan Communities offer balance and strength programs to lower your chances of falling. They also feature grab bars, handrails and brighter lights to help you see better and avoid your chances of tripping.
