Feel More Independent at Sun Lakes

For most, one of the biggest factors when choosing a retirement community is the ability to stay independent. Without the maintenance and upkeep of homeownership, moving to a senior  living community can allow more time to do the things you love and more time to explore and enjoy something new.

At Sun Lakes, we foster independence by:

Providing fitness classes and amenities – One of the most effective ways to stay independent as we age is to ensure we take care of our physical health. At Sun Lakes, we offer an on-site fitness center as well as a group fitness room with scheduled classes to help residents keep active.

Being a pet-friendly community – In addition to exercising in the fitness center or fitness room, sometimes we need a little nudge to get out the door. That’s where your four legged friends can help. Pets can be a great walking companion. Additionally, taking care of a pet has shown to help seniors stay independent. Take your dog for a walk around the community and enjoy the Arizona sunshine.

Creating social groups and events – Making new friends and social circles as we age is a very important part of staying independent. Our independent living community encourages socialization with a variety of clubs, activities and social events. Our goal is to cultivate friendships and relationships and welcome new residents to the community.A group of senior women clapping

Promoting emotional health – Engaging in activities or talks that are mentally stimulating can help keep cognitive skills sharp. At Sun Lakes, we promote overall wellness by focusing on not only physical well-being, but mental well-being also. We often have talks and social events that encourage mental stimulation and conversation.

Allowing you to keep up with your hobbies and interests – By eliminating the maintenance of homeownership with our low-maintenance residences, this provides more time to keep up with the things you love. With more time available to engage in things you enjoy, the more independent you will feel. A living room within a Robson Senior Living apartment
