Benefits of Senior Apartments

Living in a senior apartment in Virginia Beach can be a rewarding experience for older adults who want to prioritize an active and carefree lifestyle. With a smaller space, you can focus less on housework and more on the people and activities that enrich your life.

From housekeeping services to top-notch security, read these five benefits of senior living apartments and learn how communities like Atlantic Shores have everything you need for an exceptional retirement lifestyle.

  1. 1. Enjoy the freedom provided by maintenance-free living
  2. Living in a senior living apartment truly makes to-do lists a thing of the past. You no longer have to worry about planning for costs such as exterior and interior repairs, replacing or fixing broken appliances, homeowners insurance or property tax.

    At Atlantic Shores, we also offer biweekly housekeeping and flat linen services. This allows you to enjoy a clean, comfortable home without having to manage it all yourself. While you’re out on the waters of Lake Redwing, refining your drop shot on the pickleball court, or tending to your space in the community garden, our team of friendly professionals will take care of your home inside and out.

  3. 2. Choose from a variety of floor plans
  4. Atlantic Shores features a variety of well-appointed floor plans to suit any retirement lifestyle. For example, The Thames is a charming one-bedroom apartment that is perfect for relaxing and recharging in between activities.

    No matter which floor plan you choose, maintenance-free living and an easy-to-clean space will give you more time to focus on pursuing your hobbies and leading an active lifestyle.
