Thinking about retirement often conjures up images of living it up in a beautiful home at a dreamy locale, being free of the work stress.Â Weâ€™re here to tell you that youÂ donâ€™t need to shell out all of your hard-earned wealthÂ and move to a faraway hill station. This dreamÂ is possible in Mumbai itselfÂ if planned carefully and meticulously.
With so many upcoming new projects in Mumbai tailored toÂ suit the needs of senior citizensÂ â€“ itâ€™s finally possible toÂ live up your golden years in style and comfort, knowing that youâ€™re never really far from the grandchildren. So, read ahead to knowÂ 5 thingsthat you should look forÂ to choose yourÂ perfect retirement homeÂ in the city.
1. A green and clean environment
As we age, there is a greater thirst to see the finer pleasures of the earth andÂ feel the purity of nature.Â A retirement home shouldÂ offer you ample green avenuesÂ and spaces where you can pleasantlyÂ walk hand in hand with your partner.Â Most of all, itÂ should be a safe and charming space for youÂ â€“ filled with a gentler hubbub where the sound of city traffic fades away like a distant memory in your ears.
When searching for your perfect home, look for locales that offer youÂ clean airÂ andÂ lots of oxygenÂ toÂ support the health of your mind and body.Â Opt to live in greener parts of areas such asÂ DahisarÂ orÂ MulundÂ that often have aÂ good to moderate Air Quality IndexÂ (AQI â€“ range: 0 to 100)
You will find that most of our building projects are located in suchÂ peaceful areas.Â The project ofÂ Sheth Montana in MulundÂ will fulfill all your wishes toÂ marvel at spectacular views of the hillsÂ from your window. On the other hand,Â Sheth Midori in DahisarÂ willÂ place you at the fringes of the Sanjay Gandhi National Park.Â Here, you can wake up each day to the pleasant call of unique birds perched on branches and treetops.
2. Proximity to Healthcare and essential services
While moving to the countryside after retirement sounds romantic, the reality is that youâ€™ll beÂ too far from most healthcare and essential services.Â Instead, you canÂ live the dreamÂ by moving inÂ green and clean cityscapes equipped with a developed infrastructureÂ to enjoy the benefits of both! Moreover, ensure that the building offers options for timely housekeeping help and medical aid for you if needed.
There are a number of our lavish residential properties in Mumbai thatÂ offer you abundant greenery along with top hospitals, pharmacies, and shopping centres nearby.Â Perfect options includeÂ Sheth Montana in Mulund,Sheth Midori in Dahisar, or evenÂ Sheth Clarion in Borivali.Â These localities willÂ give you the desired dreamÂ of staying in anÂ oasis of greeneryÂ and hillside views, while still beingÂ near reputed healthcare. As these are quiteÂ near the highways, it will also beÂ economicalÂ in the long run as you will beÂ spending less on transport.
3. Maintenance costs and upkeep
While a large condo sounds like the ideal choice for retirement, we suggest you only invest in one if itâ€™sÂ not burning a hole in your savings.Â Especially if youâ€™re buying a home via a loan, you may also have toÂ account for the monthly EMIsÂ from the pension or your other sources of income. Besides, aÂ compactÂ and comfortable home is bound to haveÂ enough space to suit two people,Â as well asÂ cost you lesser to maintain it.Â (An ideal choice could beÂ Sheth Clarion, BorivaliÂ â€“ an upcoming project with beautiful homes ranging from 1, 2, and 3 BHKs)
Further,Â plan the monthly expensesÂ that will get spent in the general upkeep and maintenance of your home. Ensure that youÂ factor in for things like furnishing, plumbing repairs, and more.Â This is whereÂ new homes prove to be a better dealÂ as there isÂ less chance of leakages.
4. Amenities that encourage physical activity and active social life.
Look for a building withÂ amenities that help you grow, physically and mentally. Retirement is the time when you will have theÂ time to pursue all your interests and hobbies. So, ensure you choose a locality that offers youÂ a jogging trackÂ or aÂ nearby yoga classÂ thatÂ encourages exercise.A space that gives you basic amenities, as well as a friendly environment with lovely people, trumps everything else!
A lot of new projects in Mumbai specialize in creating suchÂ elderly-friendly spacesÂ that offer a plethora of amenities toÂ keep one entertained and energized.Sheth Montana, Mulund offers amenities like aÂ library, spas, a golf area, yoga rooms, saunas,Â and more! There are also dedicated corners andÂ socializing pavilions for senior citizensÂ to mingle with each other.
Sheth Midori, Dahisar similarly has aÂ clubhouse with meditation rooms, an Eco deck with a walking track, and beautifully landscaped gardens. These amenities ensure that youÂ lead a peaceful lifestyle, mildly infused with fun chitter-chatters of people you interact with.
5. Building is senior-citizen friendly.
Besides a safe neighborhood, essential services, and numerous amenities â€“ try to find a building thatÂ supports the different needs of senior citizens. This means they haveÂ areas with rampsÂ andÂ wheelchair access, anti-skid tiles for the flooring, handrailsÂ orÂ safety bars on stair corners,Â functional elevators, andÂ ambient lighting in common areasÂ of the locality. These preventive measures will ease things for them andÂ make one feel safe, secure, and welcome in a new space.
