Wilmington is a wonderful place to retire. Not only is the city full of fun activities, gorgeous beaches, and friendly people, but the comfortable climate is also perfect for relaxing or adventuring. When exploring your senior living options in Wilmington, you may come to the following question: How does a 55+ community compare to a Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) like Trinity Landing?
Comparing these two options will hopefully help you decide what is right for you.
Difference in amenities
55+ communities in Wilmington and a CCRC like Trinity Landing will offer you an assortment of amenities. Some of the shared amenities likely include a maintenance-free lifestyle, ensuring you that you’ll never have to spend any more energy on household chores or lawncare again. Instead you can spend your energy on the people and things you love.
However, Trinity Landing’s offerings go significantly beyond those of a 55+ community. For one, there is the dining. Trinity Landing offers nutritious, chef-prepared, farm-to-table dining right on campus. While Wilmington’s many restaurants will always be available to you, at Trinity Landing you never have to go anywhere for a delicious meal if you don’t want to. Moreover, Trinity Landing also offers a broader range of activities and clubs.
Interested in fitness classes? Trinity Landing will have an entire team of fitness experts and trainers. Trinity Landing will also offer an aquatic center, continuing education opportunities, an art studio, and plenty of gathering spaces for clubs. In general, life at Trinity Landing will be more community-focused and will offer many more amenities.
Peace of mind
Peace of mind is one of the biggest differentiators between 55+ communities in Wilmington and CCRCs like Trinity Landing. The future is full of unknowns, so there is immense value in knowing that, should your needs ever change, you have access to higher levels of care without the inconvenience of moving. At a 55+ community, a change in needs would require a change in location. This process can be inconvenient for a number of reasons. It requires you to assess other care providers, apply to a new community, move your possessions, and, perhaps most importantly, say goodbye to your friends in your current community.
On the flipside, peace of mind is an area where Trinity Landing will really shine. Trinity Grove Healthcare Services is just a mile down the road from Trinity Landing, making it extremely convenient to access. Should your needs ever change, you don’t need to assess other care providers. Instead, you will have priority access to Trinity Grove’s high-quality care. Knowing this, you can relax and enjoy your peace of mind for the future.
Compare the value
Because Trinity Landing provides more amenities, a wider array of services, and priority access to care (should the need arise), it will offer more value for your dollar than a 55+ community in Wilmington. You aren’t just paying for a residence and utilities. Your costs will cover all of the facilities, the activities, the dining, the services and more.
As a result, Trinity Landing will offer you a chance to proactively plan for your future. It will offer a vibrant community of active seniors who will treat you like family. And, most of all, it offers you peace of mind for the future.
