When it comes to traveling in retirement, the ease and security of Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) living has never been more appealing. Recent studies show active, older adults are traveling at an ever-escalating rate, so it’s no wonder the maintenance-free lifestyle at The Knolls in beautiful Westchester County is attracting such a friendly and enthusiastic group of world-traveler residents. The Knolls is also surprisingly affordable, which is a nice plus for those whose retirement plans include traveling to see more of their family and friends as well as the world.
Westchester Magazine recently made some great points about the value of convenience that comes from the maintenance-free lifestyle you can enjoy at The Knolls. “We’ve seen an increase in Boomers not wanting the responsibility of a home anymore and not wanting to leave Westchester,” said Nancy Kennedy, associate broker with Houlihan Lawrence in Croton-on-Hudson, to Westchester Magazine. “Empty-nesters don’t want to be bothered anymore with a house. They don’t want to have to call the landscaper and arrange for snowplowing. Also, a lot of people in Westchester travel or have second homes… and they want a lock-and-leave situation. When they come back, they want all the services and amenities.”
Whether you plan a weekend getaway or an extended trip, or want to visit your kids and grandkids—at The Knolls, you can simply pack, lock your apartment residence and leave with the peace of mind knowing that an excellent, caring staff will take care of your home’s housekeeping and maintenance. When you return, simply resume the relaxing, enriching Westchester retirement lifestyle that sets The Knolls apart. Maintenance-free living means you can enjoy that “on vacation” feel even after you return home.
