Four Reasons To Move to Senior Living

  1. We handle the chores.

In part, older adults choose retirement communities to free themselves from the never-ending list of things to do around the house. From housekeeping and maintenance to yardwork and shoveling snow, the staff members at senior living communities take care of everything to ensure you can spend your time exactly as you like. At The Oaks at Bartlett, our services and amenities mean daily relief from the tedium of household chores.

  1. You’ll stay active and engaged.

The activities offered by senior living communities cater to various interests. These include resident committees, groups, clubs, and special events suggested by residents. At The Oaks at Bartlett, residents enjoy the following:

  • Restaurant-style dining room
  • Indoor swimming pool
  • Fully equipped fitness center
  • Computer lab
  • Arts and crafts studio
  • Chapel for Mass, Lutheran services, non-denominational services, prayer and quiet reflection
  • Club room/card room
  • Library
  • Bar/lounge
  • Game room
  • Beauty salon
  • Mini mart
  1. A focus on wellness.

Moving to a senior living community like The Oaks at Bartlett can make achieving your New Year’s resolutions a snap. We strive to create a healthy environment that encourages independence, maintains it, and enables our residents to stay fit. Sign up for a fitness class, take a dip in the indoor swimming pool, or explore what the fitness center offers. But exercise and fitness classes aren’t the only way we enhance health. In addition to a focus on wellness, we offer delicious, nutritious dining options, too!

  1. You’ll get peace of mind.

At a Life Plan Community like The Oaks at Bartlett, you move in while still independent and pay a one-time entrance fee plus monthly fees. In exchange, the community provides a vibrant independent lifestyle AND priority access to on-site care at a prearranged discounted rate if you ever need it. 

In contrast, stand-alone senior living options offer no assurance of care when you need it, so you may need to move somewhere else in a hurry. You’ll have to pay full market rates if care is available, which can be financially overwhelming. When you compare stand-alone senior living options to Life Plan Communities, you see Life Plan Communities present a secure plan that removes worry for you and your whole family.

The Oaks at Bartlett: Good People. Real Community.

As a Life Plan Community, we offer independent living and a full continuum of care. This includes assisted living, memory care, skilled nursing, rehabilitation and respite care
