As careers slow down and kids move out, there comes a time when one would rather relax and enjoy hobbies instead of doing more work. However, there is nothing more time consuming than cleaning a large house and doing yard work. As people begin to retire and look for more fun in life, it begins to make sense to move to a smaller house with less to worry about. Silverado Village in Placerville is specifically designed to provide seniors with the ease of a more manageable-sized home and the convenience of less to take care of and maintain.
“Our goal was to provide homes that were designed to make things easier,” stated Silverado Homes Vice President Steve Thinglum. “We feel that Silverado Village in Placerville provides that exact atmosphere for seniors who are looking for an easy-living lifestyle while still owning an attractive and well-built home.”
The only thing residents at Silverado Village are required to do outside their homes is enjoy the surroundings and relax in the natural beauty of the outdoors. All exterior landscaping and maintenance is taken care of by a professional grounds crew. This even includes those extra duties such as cleaning out rain gutters, watering 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, so residents will never have to waste time on those jobs again.
Silverado Village offers single-story home designs, specifically built with seniors in mind. All homes include easy-to-use lever style doors, no-step walk-in showers, emergency pull cords and remote pendants, so you can be certain you will always have safety and support. For those relaxing nighttime walks, there is recessed lighting on all travel paths and smooth, maintained trails.
Residents also have access to the Village Center as well as Eskaton Lodge, where healthy and delicious meals can be taken out or delivered directly to you, taking another chore off of your plate. The lodge has many high-end features including a restful spa, a fully-equipped fitness center, and a multi-purpose room for community use. There is also an indoor heated swimming pool, billiards table and the cozy Bistro Café coming soon, where warm cups of coffee and amazing snacks will be on the menu.
