You saw the Civil Rights Act of 1964 signed into law and Apollo 11 land on the moon. You’ve lived through the Cold War, the creation of Google, Y2K and the Great Recession. So you’re no stranger to change, and these aren’t the first “unprecedented times” you’ve lived through.

If you’re concerned about the rising cost of living and inflation, you may be unsure what the best next steps are. Here’s a look at how a senior living community can support you no matter what lies ahead.
The Rising Cost Of Just About Everything
It’s no secret, the cost of living keeps going up. With a red-hot housing market and surging inflation, prices are surging across the board. Here are a few key things we’ve seen over the past 12 months.
In the last year:
- Home prices rose a jaw-dropping 19%.
- Expenses like utilities, gasoline and other goods climbed by 9.1% — a 40-year-high.
- Energy prices ballooned by 42%.
- Food prices swelled 10%.
Surging housing prices and inflation are squeezing many older adults out of their hard-earned money. Increased expenses have forced many of us to reevaluate our budgets.
Experts warn that your cash flow could be consumed by higher prices, and not just for food and goods, but by living expenses as well.
How Senior Living Can Offset Rising Inflation
Utilities, Maintenance, Repairs, Daily Living Expenses
With the fluctuating cost of daily expenses, senior living communities can offset the cost of rising inflation. How is that possible? One of the best benefits of moving in is the all-inclusive lifestyle.
Think about the prices of many goods like food, utilities and gas have risen. (Gasoline prices alone are nearly 45% higher than they were last year.) In our communities, it’s all taken care of for you. All costs are included, and that comes with access to our community perks.
You don’t need a fitness membership; we have a gym!
You don’t need to pay for gas; we have a shuttle!
You don’t need to pay a landscaper; we have a maintenance team!
Life in our communities allows you to beat inflation by paying a flat price for your life’s expenses. For one price, you have access to an on-site fitness center, chef-prepared meals, community events and more.

Senior living allows you to get the best value out of downsizing. It’s a seller’s market and many seniors are looking to downsize. Unfortunately, downsizing your home may not be the cash grab it once was. While you’re still likely to get top dollar for your current home, there’s less inventory and intense competition to buy smaller homes. That’s where senior living can help.
Retirees that downsize into senior living communities don’t have to worry about surging home prices or high interest rates. The biggest benefit of downsizing is the ability to maximize the profit in your current home. Moving into a senior living community means you can right size without losing value competing for a smaller home. You won’t have to go through the hassles of a bidding war and the pains of buying a new home.
Moving into our StoryPoint Group Communities allows you to get the smaller space you need, but with big added perks like gourmet dining, a dynamic social calendar, health care services and more.
