senior community

The first step to creating the perfect community is choosing the right location. Accordingly, for the first Antara community, we chose 14 pristine acres in Purukul, Dehradun. Renowned for its serene beauty and comfortable weather throughout the year, Dehradun spoils for choice when it comes to stunning mountain ranges, shimmering lakes, lush green trails and places of historic value, all in close proximity to Antara.

5 Monsoon Care Tips for the Elderly

While the smell of fresh mud and the sound of raindrops often bring joy and persuade you to enjoy the rhythm of nature, it can also bring along with it, a few air borne infections in the surroundings, specially food and drinks. Seniors are not only more vulnerable to illnesses due to infections when the air gets damp, but the rainwater can also make them more susceptible to falls and accidents.

Trends Shaping Today's Senior Housing/living

Current trends in senior living point to a perceptible shift towards more modern, active and independent lives that look very different from what we've come to think of as 'ageing'. There is a big cultural and ideological shift about life after 50. The way people live and age today is more of a choice than being a need. Progressive seniors today look forward to their retirement; to take a break from work and indulge in passions and things that they never had the time for.

Designed with the needs of today’s progressive individuals in mind, senior living communities are becoming popular choices for active ageing population. While every home buyer has his or her own set of expectations in mind, the 50+ home buyer is likely to find what they’re looking for in a senior living community that is conceptualized and designed just for them.

Senior Living community

I was recently on a 5 day marathon trip to the US to do a roadshow with our partners Sotheby’s. On that trip I took out a few hours to go and see what is regarded as the number one Senior Living community in the US. Based out of Palo Alto in California, Vi Living (a part of the Hyatt Group), spread over 5 acres in the heart of Palo Alto represents luxury Senior Living at its best. With price points starting at 5 crores and going upwards of 10 crores, the community continues to have a robust wait list. On fixing my meeting with their Executive Director, I was pleasantly surprised to know that they had heard of Antara and I was most flattered that they had done their research to find similarities between us and them, from a vision and service delivery perspective. I was thoroughly impressed with their intent and focus to create a beautiful and well run community, similar to ours, their focus has been on making sure every desire and need of their residents is addressed. However, the one thing that did strike me while walking around was whether a strong “community” had been formed, I wondered if the “We” element of ‘Vi Living’ was a bit under optimized? After a lot of thought, I realized that we as Indians have a natural affiliation of being with people, of growing up with family and friends around us all the time. Our sense of privacy is not the same as the west and our ability to connect with one another is far easier. That made me excited when thinking of Antara and envisioning the strength that will come from the bonds and ties that will come with living together. Even before our residents have moved in, I have seen friendships blossom, support strengthened and opportunities created to come together and establish relationships. In all my conversations with residents and clients, this is the one element I worry least about given the desire and excitement I see in people wanting to start new friendships. Our aspiration continues to make Antara a community where independent minds and experiences will come together to make a new and unique community and I cannot wait for 2016 to be the year this movement starts!

How Socialisation Benefits Seniors?

Social outing with family and peers is undoubtedly stimulating, engaging and rejuvenating. When seniors consistently engage in social outings, they experience significant improvements in their physical, mental, and emotional health outcomes. Much of this improvement results from the ability to maintain healthy relationships and a continued sense of being part of the society. Guided social getaways can be either planned with family or organisations who specialize in this. You can also choose to live in a quality senior living community, as most of them provide residents with a warm and friendly atmosphere and a variety of opportunities to connect with others through social events and conversations. Residents are also encouraged to take advantage of regularly scheduled activities and programs that are created, with their interests in mind, to educate, inspire, and entertain.

The Older We Get, The Happier We Are: Here's Why?

Retirement years are about greater freedom and more choices. With the possibilities presented by record longevity, and often lesser work and family obligations than before retirement, progressive seniors of today say they are living in the best times of their lives. Those who choose to live in active living communities enjoy even greater independence. They enjoy the freedom from household maintenance, yard work, insurance payments and security worries. In a *[modern senior living community](*, like Antara, although you live independently, you are never alone. They have on-site security to make sure you’re protected 24/7, on-site medical care and doctor-on-call too if you ever need emergency assistance.

How Progressive Seniors Are Rebranding Ageing

The inflating vibrant, active, healthy, and engaged ageing population of the 21st Century is breaking every stereotype the society has about seniors and the retirement years, including the notion that age should be the deciding factor as to when one should stop working. Many seniors plan to continue working well into their 70s (and beyond).
