The term “lock-and-leave” is more than just a buzzy way to describe the way active adult communities operate. There are real benefits to this senior living feature that can make it an attractive alternative to aging-in-place. Here’s a rundown:
- Freedom: One of the biggest draws of the lock-and-leave set-up is the ability it gives you to get up and go at a moment’s notice – without setting up lawn maintenance, a house sitter and the like. That makes it easy to be there when the grandkids are born, or take advantage of that last-minute cruise deal.
- Convenience: When choosing between home ownership and an active adult apartment home, maintenance is often a deciding factor. With fees for yard care, interior upkeep, and even appliance repair all included as part of your monthly fees, you can say goodbye to your “honey-do” list and devote your time, energy and money to your bucket list instead.
- Peace of mind: Even in the friendliest of neighborhoods, it can be hard to leave your home without worrying about security. Lock-and-leave senior living communities often include concierge services as part of the amenities package for added security while you’re away.
