Sticking Together: Senior Living Options for Couples

Senior Living | 03/8/21


A senior couple enjoys spending time together with coffee on their couch.

As you age, the concept of moving to a senior living community may sound increasingly appealing. However, there are quite a few considerations to make before a big move. You’ll need to deliberate how it will impact you logistically, financially and emotionally. And if you’re moving with a spouse, you may also run across some limitations during your search for the perfect community.

At The Moorings at Lewes, we’re happy to welcome senior couples into our Life Plan Community, also referred to as a continuing care retirement community (CCRC). Here, you and your partner can enjoy your golden years together and appreciate the best things life has to offer.

Senior Couples Living Together at The Moorings at Lewes

Our community has a variety of floor plans — from one- and two-bedroom apartments to cozy cottages — so you and your spouse are sure to find something that meets your needs and style. Each home includes an airy living space, bathroom with safety features and more. All your future home needs are a few of your personal touches.

Thanks to maintenance-free living, all of your partner’s and your needs will be met — no more worrying about who will be taking care of the housework and when the yardwork will be taken care of, as we’ll handle everything. Now you’ll have all the time you want to do the things you love to do together. See old friends and start relationships with new ones, see the places you’ve always wanted to visit or relax in the surroundings of your new home.

You’ll also find a wide array of amenities for you both to enjoy here at The Moorings. Enjoy a glass of wine with a delicious meal in our Boathouse Bistro Grand Atrium or the Chart Room, enjoy a concert or guest lecture in our performance hall or take in the beauty of nature with our butterfly gardens and walking trails. You don’t have to travel far to enjoy all these things and more — everything is just a short walk from your front door.

Of course, if you decide you want to take a trip off campus and see what the surrounding community has to offer, our campus bus can take you around the stunning town of Lewes. Spend a day together on the beach, be lifelong learners through the Osher Lifelong Learning program or enjoy a bike ride at Cape Henlopen State Park.

And should your needs or those of your partner change, one of the greatest assets a Life Plan Community can offer is the ability to transition from one level of care to the next with ease. The Moorings offers peace of mind through our Lifecare option, which is particularly advantageous for couples in the community. You’ll never need to take on additional burdens for future moves should either of you need a higher level of care.

Senior Couples Can Enjoy Their Golden Years Together at The Moorings at Lewes

Are you and your partner searching for a senior living community to call home? The Moorings at Lewes provides you with exciting opportunities in the present and peace of mind for the future. But don’t just take our word for it. Richard and Jean Woolley have been residents at The Moorings since 2015, and they both take advantage of everything the community has to offer.

“We arrived at a point in our lives where we both decided to make plans for the future. We wanted to do this so our children wouldn’t have to do it for us. We’ve had to make decisions for other family members and did not want to put that burden on our children. Health concerns were a contributing factor; in addition, we did not want to deal with steps in our home anymore and it was becoming more difficult and tiresome to do things around the house like raking leaves and shoveling snow… We feel very lucky to have found such a nice place.”
