If your plans for retirement include being near the water, consider sites offering a continuum of care in the southern Florida region. From independent living on the coast to a waterfront nursing home, Lourdes Noreen-McKeen is one option for seniors in a South Florida location that offers a bevy of alluring amenities, both on and off-site.
Walk to church. Your faith is important. Enjoy walking to devotional services, both on-site at many retirement communities, as well as a short distance in the downtown district of West Palm Beach. Don’t want to drive? Seek out waterfront nursing homes offering shuttles provide to your church of choice in the area, including Catholic, Episcopalian, Christian, and Jewish houses of worship. We also have on-site Catholic worship services.
Stay close to the culture. Restaurants, theaters, and shops abound in downtown West Palm Beach. Catch a ride or enjoy the stroll to events and venues all around you. Enjoy an evening at the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts, or take in a performance at the nearby Opera. The Norton Museum of Art offers exhibits and events that you won’t want to miss. We offer shuttles for residents, or you may choose to take a ride on the downtown trolley, which is complimentary.
Enjoy open-air markets. The Green Market in West Palm Beach provides residents with an abundance of fresh produce, foods, goods, crafts, and wares. The mild climate accommodates year-round farm stands and markets, which makes it easy to eat healthy. Even if you don’t like to shop, enjoy sitting in the sun and people-watching at this one-of-a-kind shopping venue.
Learn something new. The nearby Four Arts center provides a gamut of seminars and learning opportunities for seniors in the area. Take part in a dance class or learn a new craft; be sure to check the on-site schedule of your senior community to find many workshops, talks, and tours that may teach you something new!
Have some fun on the water. Perhaps the biggest perk of a waterfront nursing home is the ocean, itself. The calm serenity of being near the water makes retiring to South Florida a dream come true. With the oceanfront location come many activities and offerings. Enjoy charter boats and fishing trips; consider soaking up the South Florida sun on the stretch of powder-white sand. Family and friends will want to head south and visit when you reside in this idyllic locale.
Enjoy on-site salons. Try some of the services offered by on-site salons. Want to enjoy a mani and a pedi this afternoon? There is no need to venture far; get dolled-up without going any distance! Get a real barber-shop shave, hot towel and all, while staying close to home. Hair, nail, skin, and specialty treatments are typically offered for residents.
Schedule in some socialization. Don’t feel pressured to venture into the city to engage with others; on-site socials provide the perfect opportunity to interact and get to know your neighbors. Themed-nights, community movies, sporting events, and parties are a few of the scheduled activities at Lourdes Noreen-McKeen, which endorses social interaction as being an important element of holistic health and well-being.
Stay well with medical services. Choose senior living communities with a full range of medical service provision. On-site nursing assistance, emergency response, and wellness appointments make it convenient to stay healthy and follow-up with providers, even if you don’t drive. Living in a senior community with a focus on a continuum of care allows residents the ability to stay at home as they age, providing skilled nursing and assisted living when needed on-site.
