Try a Short-Term Trial Stay During the Winter at VIVA Retirement Communities
Published on December 22, 2022
Narrowing down which retirement community is the right one for you or your loved one can be overwhelming. Every senior retirement home offers a variety of services, medical assistance, and amenities. Your best option may be choosing a trial stay at a retirement home.
After all, you can conduct all the online searches you want, read every brochure or pamphlet, and get recommendations from friends and family, but one way to see if a retirement community is right for you is to book a trial stay.
What Is a Trial Stay?
Think of a trial stay like you would a test drive for a new car. Reputable retirement communities may offer trial stays for seniors and their families to have an opportunity to experience what life may be like at a specific community.
Retirement residences are designed to provide hospitality services with home settings, and they provide many of the comforts you or your loved are accustomed to…just with the added benefit of being physically, mentally, and emotionally supported and protected.
A trial stay includes sleeping accommodations in a private suite, access to all amenities and social activities, and the ability to experience the meal options. It is a wonderful opportunity to meet and become familiar with other Community Members, and the Team Members who will be providing services.
Whether you or your loved one needs to move into a retirement community now or soon in the future, a trial stay provides everyone with an opportunity to evaluate if this is the right move before making a commitment.
Why Try a Short-Term Trial Stay in the Winter?
A short-term stay during the Winter offers a unique perspective of retirement living. Early in the season there is much excitement and bustle in preparations for the upcoming holidays. Staying somewhere warm with all the festive activities and amenities helps battle the dreaded winter blues that otherwise creep up once the holiday season ends.
Not to mention, having a trial stay during the Winter months means you or your loved one can skip the need for shoveling your walkway or driveway and can revel in the joys of having someone else take care of all the winter property maintenance.
