When Is the Right Time to Move into a Retirement Community?

Prospective residents who contact us often wonder what life is like at Montereau and if the community is really as active and as exciting as it seems from the outside. Many seniors who contact us are still young at heart and want to continue living vibrant, active lives. Their concern seems to be that moving into a retirement community is something you do later, when you can no longer live alone. 

While the decision of when to move is unique to every individual, we can tell you that life at Montereau is a dream. If anything, it is more vibrant, more exciting and more fun than you could imagine. When seniors join us, they discover a friendly and exciting world that is not unlike summer camp — a close-knit community of like-minded residents who want to get the most out of their retirement years.

Our residents are inquisitive, active, fun-loving and, most of all, friendly. They love being to participate in our full calendar of social events, from fitness classes and lifelong learning lectures to dinners among friends or excursions into Tulsa. Montereau is a life plan community, so we offer a full continuum of care to support you in case your needs change, but our Independent Living community is just that: a place to on your own terms, with access to all the amenities and activities you could dream of. 

Why Move Now?

If you are researching senior living communities and wonder about the right time to move, chances are good that you should consider moving sooner! If you ask them, most of our residents will likely tell you they are glad they moved when they did, and they even might have moved in sooner so they could get started on all the fun and excitement.

A few questions you may want to ask yourself are:

  • Are you ready to put away the lawn mower and the snow shovel to enjoy completely maintenance- and worry-free living?
  • Are you excited by the prospect of activities and amenities just steps from your front door?
  • Would you enjoy being able to walk to a state-of-the-art fitness center for classes, strength training and a health club environment?
  • Do you relish the idea of having an old-fashioned friendly community of fast friends?

If you are thinking about moving now versus later, the real question is not, “Why move now?” The real question is, “Why wait?”

When you are ready to learn more or get started on your journey, our friendly team would love to talk with you. We are now offering both virtual and in person tours, so we would love to show you our community, introduce you to some of our residents, and answer any questions you may have. On behalf of our team and our residents, we can’t wait to meet you!
