Things to do in your new retirement property

So you’ve landed your new retirement property – what next? Moving into a new home can be an exciting time, but also a bit overwhelming as you adjust to a new routine and living space. From settling into your new home to keeping yourself occupied, here are some of the best things to do in your retirement property:

Explore your new neighborhood

If you are moving away for your retirement, it might take a while to warm to your new surroundings. To speed up the process, make a habit of getting out and exploring your new city by foot! Getting a feel for your new community will make you feel a lot more at home – plus, you’ll discover a ton of new attractions and places to eat!

Invite family and grandchildren

Few things lift the spirits as much as a visit from the ones you hold dearest. With this in mind, one of the first things you should do upon moving in is to introduce your family to your new apartment! You could chat over a cup of tea, give your children a tour of the development, or even enjoy the company of your grandchildren!

There are loads of ways to make new friends in retirement, whether you engage in a shared hobby or simply just introduce yourself over lunch. If you have people to depend on and share time with, your retirement apartment will feel like a home in no time.

Decorate your apartment space

When you arrive at your retirement apartment, putting a personal spin on your new home should be a high priority! You probably won’t have to give your new place a fresh lick of paint, but adding personal mementos like family photos, art pieces or your own furniture will go a long way to making you feel more settled in your home.

Indulge in some arts and crafts

As days get colder and darker, you’ll need to start thinking about creative ways to spend your time in your retirement apartment. And nothing says creative like arts and crafts!
