The term “easy living” has been used to describe Silverado Homes’ newest community for seniors, which features carefully planned and beautifully designed homes in Silverado Village at Placerville.
“Life after retirement is for relaxing and enjoyment, not for taking care of a big yard and cleaning a large home,” stated Silverado Homes Vice President Steve Thinglum. “We wanted to create homes that were more manageable to maintain and that eliminated yard work altogether. Silverado Village at Placerville does just that.”
All exterior landscaping and maintenance is taken care of by a professional grounds crew, and this includes cleaning out rain gutters, watering the grass and outdoor plants, and mowing the lawn. The community even offers assistance with household tasks and common indoor issues such as changing out light bulbs, replacing air filters, or fixing random items around the house.
The newly constructed and modernly designed homes that make up the community of Silverado Village were meticulously planned and expertly crafted. From the easy-to-use lever style doors to the no-step walk-in showers, these houses were created with seniors in mind. There is emergency pull cords and remote pendants located within the home, so there will be support in the case of an emergency. On top of all of the safety features inside, there is recessed lighting on all travel paths for nighttime walks as well as smooth, maintained trails to take in the natural surroundings.
