Financial Planning: 4 Ways Retirement Living Can Save You Time and Money

Retirement provides you with the time to prioritize and focus on the things that truly matter to you. Whether you want more time to nourish creativity or build more meaningful relationships, you can look forward to spending your time the way you choose. At Vinson Hall Retirement Community, we help you achieve your retirement goals easily and with support from our amazing staff.

Here are four ways a move to Vinson Hall Retirement Community can help you refocus, save time and money, and help you live a richer life.

1. Downsizing can help you live big. Let’s face it, maintaining a large house can be unnecessarily expensive and time-consuming. Downsizing to a retirement community may be the easiest way for you to save time and money. A move like this can eliminate home ownership expenses like taxes, maintenance, utilities, lawn care and other “spendy” surprises like repairs or replacements. At Vinson Hall Retirement Community, we provide maintenance-free living. You can forget about mowing the lawn or making household repairs, our maintenance team is just a phone call away and fully prepared to make any repairs required. At the same time our grounds staff keep Vinson Hall Retirement Community’s 22 acres a wonderful place for an evening stroll.

2. Bring richness to your life with more activities and excursions. Most senior living residents welcome more opportunities for engagement and have more time to enjoy new things. At Vinson Hall Retirement Community, we make it easy for you to sign up for lectures and continuing education courses, art classes, field trips and excursions, live music, crafting, dining out and clubs. Our monthly calendar is full of events such as these and more. For example, this month a group of art enthusiasts are boarding the Vinson Hall Retirement Community bus for an overnight trip to Richmond to visit the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts and the Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens. For those who prefer to have their entertainment closer to home, two bands – one bluegrass and another jazz – are performing right here on campus. These are just a few examples of some of the daily activities Vinson Hall Retirement Community residents enjoy. When you move to Vinson Hall Retirement Community, our friendly and helpful activities coordinator ensures that your schedule is packed with all the fun and engagement you want.

3. Add life to your years with a focus on total wellbeing. Loneliness and isolation are serious health risks that bring increased rates of depression, anxiety, and other serious mental health problems. At Vinson Hall Retirement Community, you can take advantage of friendly camaraderie just outside your door. There are nutritious and delicious dining options available in our two beautiful dining rooms or, if you prefer, delivered to your door. You’ll also find easy ways to stay active and social. Vinson Hall Retirement Community residents have access to our state-of-the-art gym, swimming pool, walking paths and exercise programs, all located conveniently on campus. Weekly classes in mindfulness and yoga improve mental wellbeing, while courses in advanced photography, painting, and music lessons inspire the creative spirit. If you enjoy some friendly competition, then table tennis, pool volleyball or pickleball could be your game.

4. Enjoy peace of mind with healthcare, security and assistance when you need it. With a Life Plan Community like Vinson Hall Retirement Community, you can take comfort in knowing that your changing health needs will be met. The Health & Wellness Clinic in Vinson Hall is staffed 24 hours a day for all your healthcare needs. You can also feel assured in knowing that Vinson Hall Retirement Community provides independent living, assisted living, long-term care and rehab, and memory care– to provide the support you need when you need it.

It’s important to simplify and make space in your life for what truly matters. The retirement community lifestyle can replace many of the mundane everyday responsibilities of homeownership with exciting activities and new friendships that are sure to invigorate your zest for life.
