staying active in retirement

Do you feel retirement-ready? As you enter this new chapter in your life, you’ve likely come across a blog post (or two) about independent living, and you may have wondered if it’s the right fit for you. Luckily, the Move In Coordinator at The Davis Community has put together this quick guide to help you decide if an independent living community in Wilmington, NC, should be in your plans:

The Davis Community: Independent Living in Wilmington

They say, “home is where the heart is,” and Wilmington truly is the heart of North Carolina—so why not make it home! With a vibrant community full of arts, culture, history, and beautiful nature, it’s the perfect location for a senior living community. A big small city, Wilmington has access to healthcare, lifelong learning and volunteer opportunities.

What Can Independent Living Offer You?

Whether or not independent living is for you depends on what you personally value in everyday life. What kind of retirement do you want to lead? How do you picture your ideal daily life? Here are a couple of things that you might have on your dream list:

Wilmington Rental Residences

The Residences and The Cottages at The Davis Community offer several floor plans to make your own. With modern appliances, flooring, and finishes, you’ll live a life of cozy luxury in retirement. And don’t forget—independent living at The Davis Community is maintenance-free. Why spend time keeping up the house when you could explore the neighborhood around you? And while you stay booked and busy, our team will keep your belongings safe with 24-hour security.

A Close-Knit Community

Independent living communities offer ample opportunity to foster old and new connections. You’ll be able to fill your calendar with everything from day trips to book clubs and educational classes. Sharing these experiences with others will create a wealth of experiences and memories to last a lifetime.

Wellness and Self-Care Amenities

Retirement is a time to show yourself a little love. Instead of having to source all the best manicurists, hair stylists, and fitness trainers, an independent living community brings them to you. You’ll be able to maintain your well-being with an onsite spa, salon, and wellness center. And as The Davis Community continues to build health-related amenities, you’ll gain access to fitness assessments, group classes, wellness seminars, and personalized exercise prescriptions.

Incredible Eats

There’s nothing better than an evening spent around the dinner table surrounded by friends and family. But if you’re not the cooking type, that’s easier said than done. Independent living at The Davis Community offers multiple onsite restaurants for you to enjoy. You’re in for a real treat.

Worry-Free Support

Over time, your health and needs change. Instead of having to secure all the right resources to support you over time, you can access them straight from most independent living communities. You’ll enjoy peace of mind as you work with healthcare services staff to ensure you feel your best—in mind and body.
