Guest Blogger Spotlight: Creekside at Elfindale

The Benefits of Independent Living

“Why didn’t I make the move sooner?” are words that are often spoken by someone who has made the transition from their home of 25 plus years to a retirement community.

After the move, they realize the benefits of living at Creekside far exceed those of owning their own home.  Imagine no homeowner worries or maintenance, access to social activities, making new friends, meals prepared by a culinary team and served in a restaurant setting dining room, housekeeping once a week. Those are some of the many benefits you will find at Creekside at Elfindale, a 55 plus Retirement Community located in central Springfield on 62 beautiful wooded acres.

When people call or stop in for a tour, they have several questions. We made a list of questions you should consider when considering living in a retirement community.  

What is the starting price?

What services are included?

Are cable TV and internet available?

What are the meal plans?

Can I have my car on the property?

Are pets allowed?

Are there planned activities inside and outside of the community?

Are home health services available?

Do you have scheduled transportation?

Is there an onsite apartment for out of town guest to stay the night?

We understand when your most important questions have been answered, only then can you feel comfortable making an informed decision about the best retirement community for you.
