Top 5 Reasons to Make the Move to a Senior Living Community
Besides an enticing array of floorplans, life in a senior living or retirement community includes an ideal blend of amenities, features, and conveniences that erase the need for home maintenance, keep you safe, and give you time to enjoy the things you love to do. 

Independent senior living in Northeast Philadelphia

Here are the top five reasons why people choose an independent senior living lifestyle:

  1. Variety of Floorplans to Suit Many Needs and Budgets
    Many senior living communities offer a range of floorplans, so depending on your desire for space and privacy you can choose between studios and apartments of many different sizes, and in some retirement communities, even a variety of single-family cottages. For example, Lafayette offers studio, 1BR, and 2BR apartment floorplans that range from 355 to 1,004 square feet and feature bright, open layouts. Our apartments have many great features, with top highlights being their tasteful interior finishes done in an attractive neutral palette, newly renovated modern kitchens and bathrooms, ample storage, and important safety features like emergency pull cords, and smoke detectors, and automatic sprinklers. 
  2. No More Home Maintenance!
    Home maintenance will become a thing of the past. Most senior living communities offer inclusive, “built-in” conveniences like housekeeping, linen service, trash removal, mowing, weeding, and landscaping. The particulars and frequency of each service vary by the community so when speaking with a senior living sales agent be sure to inquire about the exact nature and regularity of these conveniences. At Lafayette, you can count on weekly housekeeping, linen service, and trash removal, plus our grounds are beautifully maintained by professional landscapers throughout every season.
  3. Delicious Chef-Prepared Meals Every Day 
    While you’ll likely have a fully equipped kitchen in your apartment, you can forgo the pots and pans—and after-dinner cleanup—every day or whenever you wish! A popular amenity you’ll find in many senior living communities is restaurant-style dining. You can enjoy a fresh, chef-prepared meal which many times is included in your monthly fee. Many communities offer a savory menu of choices that are served in well-appointed dining rooms that have the ambiance of a fine restaurant. Additionally, you’ll likely find options for more casual dining via in-house bistros, cafes, and/or grab-and-go choices. At Lafayette, you’ll find a delicious, varied menu of fresh choices every day of the week.
  4. A Wide Array of Social and Leisure Opportunities Right at Your Fingertips
    Senior living communities make available many opportunities to cultivate or re-discover enjoyable hobbies and pastimes, explore local shopping and attractions around the Philadelphia area and beyond (without you having to arrange transportation and/or make reservations), and meet new friends. Whether you are looking for exercise and wellness opportunities, want to delve into the performing or fine arts, enjoy social gatherings, or desire a trip to the theater, you’ll find a packed calendar of programs and events. At Lafayette, our monthly activity calendar usually offers many events and activities, including live, on-site entertainment by Philadelphia-area vocalists, musicians, and other performers.
  5. Safety
    This advantage brings priceless peace of mind to residents and their families. Most senior living communities have crucial safety features built into apartments like grab bars, safety rails, emergency pull cords, and sprinkler systems. Additionally, many communities have staff available around the clock should an emergency occur. Lafayette provides all of this, and even more! Our affiliation with Redeemer Health gives us access to the expertise and resources of a trusted health system—a status that gives Lafayette residents great comfort and confidence. Also, as a continuing care retirement community, Lafayette can accommodate residents if or when their health care needs change by organizing a convenient and safe transition to on-site accommodations that can assist with personal care (similar to assisted living), rehabilitation after surgery, or skilled nursing.
