When people hear the word downsizing it can often evoke a feeling of sadness. A lot of the time the word isn’t associated with something happy, but why shouldn’t it be?! At Ardenwoods we embrace the art of downsizing.
Our residents tell us that one of the main reasons they moved to Ardenwoods is that the everyday upkeep of their homes had become too much of a hassle. Maintenance on HVAC systems, preparing your home or stocking your fridge in snowy weather, or even maintaining once pristine lawns are just a few of the reasons that our residents decided it was time to do less.
While there might be a sort of sadness in leaving those tasks behind, we encourage our residents to find out what kinds of activities and hobbies they now have the time to explore. With our raised garden beds, wood shop, choir, Rocking Chair Readers Theater, and many more opportunities for getting involved, downsizing your home doesn’t mean you have to downsize your day-to-day life!
You will have more time to spend doing the things that you love. If being social is up your alley, there are plenty of residents awaiting your presence during our regular Friday evening wine and cheese hour. If you prefer solitude, there are lovely walking trails that culminate at a peaceful overlook. One of the most difficult aspects of considering a downsize is exactly how you should consolidate your belongings so that you can live comfortably in your new, smaller space. Ardenwoods has partnered with senior move specialists Robert and Laura Uherka from Simply Change to provide you with some tips and tricks.
