Why Autumn is the best season of the year!

It’s that time of the year again when the trees begin to shed their weight and we find ourselves spending more time with our fireplaces at home. Not forgetting the obvious reminders from supermarkets displaying festive delicacies such as pumpkins lattes and caramel apples.

But what is it about this season that creates a warm inviting atmosphere that we all love.

We’ve listed some of our favourite moments; see if you agree with any!

Bye, bye summer… Hello, autumn!

The autumnal weather allows us to take a break from the humid summer months, as it greets us with a refreshing cool breeze towards the end of the day.
Autumn is also much calmer than other seasons, not too cold, not too hot – just perfect. Bear in mind, it can get rather chilly in the evenings, so if you’re planning on going for a walk, make sure you wrap up warm!

Seasonal colours

It’s safe to say there is something truly amazing about watching autumnal leaves as they fall gently to the grounds.
And as you go out for your daily walk to enjoy the crisp air and leaves crunching under your feet, you’ll also notice the leaves changing colours to beautiful hues of red, orange and yellow.

Pumkins galore!

If you’re a pumpkin fan then this is your season. There’s so much you can do with them, from baking sweet pumpkin pies, or if you prefer savory then you’ll love some creamy pumpkin and lentil soup. They’re also perfect for carving your jack o lantern in time for the annual Halloween party.
Top tip:
To keep your pumpkin fresher for longer, wrap it up really tight with plastic wrap and keep it in a very cool place, preferably a refrigerator.

Trick or treat?

Autumn is full of around the world holidays such as Thanksgiving and Halloween. Halloween is a great chance to enjoy time with the family by dressing up for themed parties and events, or you can stay at home and enjoy the cheesy marathon Halloween movies. There’s so much to do – the possibilities are endless!

explore the world

Activate your retirement chapter by exploring the world’s most iconic destinations!

The best thing about being retired is that you no longer need to plan around your work timetable or worrying if your annual leave will get approved or not

And not forgetting the dreaded, going back to the office day, where you’re greeted with an inbox overflowing with mundane emails.

For the last 40-50 years you have worked hard and tried to provide the best for your friends and family, but now it’s your time to kick back and enjoy a more relaxed life.

Traveling after retirement is most definitely one of the best chapters that you can introduce to your life. Retirement doesn’t mean you have to spend your time confined in your home, although the occasional cozy evenings in front of the warm fireplace are exceptions.

Planning for life post-retirement is important, as it gives you time to realise what retirement really has to offer. See it as a beginning of a new life and opportunity to explore and do things that you wouldn’t be able to do before this special time.

And guess what… There is a whole world out there waiting to be explored!

Whether you’re looking for relaxation or adventure, solitude or crowds, budget or extravagance, there’s a perfect trip out there for everyone.

Simple tweaks to your diet could add years to your life!

Forget the anti-ageing creams or weight loss pills, your answer to looking better is very simple! All you need to do is make a few lifestyle changes to make sure you feel and look healthy.

Research over the years has shown that subtle lifestyle changes can reduce the risk of developing killer conditions that are affecting more and more people every day. Whilst juggling our busy lifestyle, family and friends, we often forget the importance of a healthy diet.

In fact, it’s pretty simple to take control of your health and know exactly what you’re putting into your body and the impact it’s creating.

Whether it’s cutting out the greasy takeaway or adding more greens to your plate, there’s always something we all can do to make ourselves healthier. As the saying goes – every little helps!

Here are some simple diet tweaks you can make to help you look and feel more powerful!

Go Green – Swap ordinary tea for green tea

Greet tea

Green tea is one of the healthiest beverages on the planet, that’s loaded with antioxidants and nutrients which have a positive effect on the body.

It’s also thought the antioxidants found in green tea may have a role in helping the body burn more calories, as it helps speeds up the metabolism. So it’s a great option to go for if you are trying to lose weight.

Green tea does come with a bitter and herbal flavour, so if that’s ‘not your cup of tea’ then why not try it with a dollop of honey for added flavour and sweetness?

 

Happy-go-nutty! – Eat more nuts and seeds

nuts and seeds

Nuts and seeds are great snacking treats if you are not allergic to nuts of course. They also make up an important part of a healthy diet as they help to reach your recommended intake of protein each day.

A diet rich in nuts and seeds can help reduce the levels of inflammation in your body. Here are some top nuts and seeds.

Almond: Rich in calcium like milk and contains magnesium, vitamin E and lots of fibre
Walnuts: Very good for maintaining a healthy heart and brain
Pecans: Contains lots of vitamins and minerals like folic acid, zinc, potassium and it also helps reduce cholesterol levels
Flax seeds: Contains lots of fibre and antioxidants and can be easily added to oatmeal or smoothies
Pumpkin Seeds: These are great for your immune system!

 

Get your ACE superpowers! 

Vitamins in your diet

Vitamins A C and E are the anti-ageing superheroes! Choosing foods that are rich in vitamins and minerals is the best way to give your body what it needs to stay healthy and well-nourished.

Avoid taking supplements and get your vitamin fix from different foods instead.

Vitamin A: Carrots, peppers, butternut squash, mango, cantaloupe, broccoli, spinach
Vitamin C: Kiwi fruit, oranges, raspberries, strawberries and peppers
Vitamin E: Nuts, seeds and green leafy vegetables.

 

Keep calm and eat fish! 

Fish diet

The human body can’t naturally produce omega-3s, but they’re still important and needed for a healthy body inside and out.

Fish is the world’s best source of omega-3 fatty acids and it’s loaded with vital nutrients such as protein and vitamin D.

Plus you can get plumper looking skin by eating more oily fish such as mackerel and salmon. The fats in oily fish are required for healthy cell membrane, which acts as a guard and helps cells hold onto moisture in the body. 

Hello Fruit and Veg, long time no see

Fruit and Veg

It’s important to eat fruits and vegetables regularly each day as it’s a simple way to improve your nutrition and to add those natural vitamins and minerals to your body.

Your overall health can be improved by eating a diet filled with plenty of fruits and vegetables. They can also help to keep your weight under control as they are filling but low in calories.

Plus there are so many ways you can add fruits and vegetables to your everyday diet.

Have an orange with your breakfast, a delicious broccoli salad for lunch, steamed asparagus with dinner and finish off with a fruit salad for dessert!

 

The choice is yours…

Remember, your body is a temple. So you must cut out anything in your diet that is silently causing destruction to your body.

By following these simple lifestyle changes, not only are you improving your health, you will also feel a lot happier knowing you are fuelling your body with the correct nutrients it deserves.

Bridging The Generation Gap – How Society Has Evolved

Are we having children later in life now as compared to before?

Why are divorce rates at an all time high?

And we how have the norms and values of society changed from the baby boomers to the millenials.

There’s been a huge shift in culture and everyday life from the baby bloomer generation to the millennial generation – this isn’t just an opinion but fact! However, the question is – are these changes necessarily for the good? This article looks at what has changed between the generations and whether our lives are different as a result.

I think we can all agree that whatever circles we engage with, you must have heard the expression ‘times have changed’…. This can be in reference to many situations, but when it comes to comparing and contrasting generation habits – this expression has never been more pertinent. And if you are of the baby boomer generation, you’ve seen society change and shaped differently overtime. So when it comes to everyday life and choices, have we lost our way? Or are we simply becoming smarter in the way we approach life?

Bridging The Generation Gap

With divorce rates at an all time high, and couples choosing to have kids later in life or not even at all, there have been some fundamental shifts in the way we do things now, as compared to years gone by.

The baby bloomer generation commenced in 1946 where there were 3.4 million babies born in that year alone! This trend continued till 1964, but by then, there were almost 77 million ‘baby boomers’ across the USA – and at the time, they made up almost 40% of the population.

There are many theories that exist as to why this baby boom emerged but the overriding feeling was that after the war, people were more optimistic about the future and so looked forward to having and raising children in a more prosperous time.

Baby Bloomers Enjoying Life

If we fast forward the clock to the modern day, the trend is completely the opposite, and couples are more inclined to have children later in life or not even at all! Could this be because we are far less optimistic about the future? And as a result, is this a sign of the times we live in? In the baby bloomer generation, marriage and children were what people aspired to obtain in life. But have our expectations grown? Or are we choosing to break the mould?

Here are some of the major cultural changes that have changed since the baby bloomer era….

Women having kids later in life:   

Latest figures show that the average age for first time mothers is 26 or older. This is much later than the baby bloomer age and really puts into perspective that women are indeed willing to wait for the right moment to have children… but why the wait? Many women state that it is expensive in the modern day to have and raise children. And would prefer to do so once their careers are stable.

In the baby boomer era, women were encouraged to come out of working life in exchange for raising their children and focusing on family life, but this was in a time where the cost of living was lower and it was feasible to live a comfortable life from one income provider.

Divorce rates are much higher in the modern era:

With divorce rates at an all time high, the latest trends suggest that divorce rates have plummeted severely since the 1960s. Again, in the baby boomer era, divorce rates were very low which gives more of an insight into the thought process back then. And there will be many debates as to why divorce rates have increased, but the fact remains that when you talk about a shift in culture and bridging the generation gap, you cant help but talk about why divorce rates are much higher within this generation.

Cost of living is much higher:

As we alluded to before, the cost of living between the two generations has significantly increased, and most likely could be one of the underlying reasons as to why our thinking has changed. With increased pressures of everyday life, people may not have the expendable income they once had. And it makes people think twice about having children.

As society has gone through many changes over the past 50 years, its brought about an air of change that may not necessarily have changed for the worse. Things are moving at a faster pace now and the conventions that existed before are slowly not becoming the norm for people in this day and age. Families, marriage and kids were the desired goal for many people of the baby boomer generation. However, in the modern day, it hasn’t become much of a priority. With divorce rates going through the roof, are we learning from the mistakes of society and avoiding them? Or are we simply losing our way with traditional values? Whatever the answer maybe, things have certainly changed – for better or for worse, you decide!

The Elms is an independent retirement village, for those who seek to live in a retirement community aimed at those of 50 years or older. If you’d like to learn more about The Elms, feel free to request a brochure below –

Walking

Walking in Lincolnshire

Sounds simple enough but walking remains one of the most effective forms of exercise and is probably the easiest way to ease yourself into exercise in general if its something you haven’t done in a while. Start slow and build it up, especially if its something you potentially struggle with. Walking 5-10 minutes a day is a great way to start. This may be walking around town doing shopping or just generally walking out in pleasant surroundings.

Yoga

Tai Chi at The Elms

Yoga is an excellent form of exercise for both the mind and body. There are many different levels of yoga that you can engage in. But its something which you can do in the comfort of your own home. Have a look below at where to start with Yoga, especially if it’s something you’ve never done before.

Ballroom Dancing

Living The Senior Independent Life

Grab a partner and head onto the dance floor! Any form of dancing is fantastic exercise and fun for all involved. It might be that you used to ballroom dance many years ago, or you may not have done it all, but it’s a really fun form of exercise that you can engage with on a regular basis. It’ll definitely be worth looking into local classes or events in your local area.

Gardening

Now here’s something practical and a good way to stay active – gardening! Not only would you be doing something for the appeal of your home, but it’s also a great way of staying active. Gardening maybe something that could hinder a particular ailment. However, even doing things like watering the plants, mowing the lawn or painting the fence help in keeping you active!

Sports Clubs

Croquet Club in Torksey

Sports like Croquet, bowls, and golf are low intensity sports that help to keep you active and channel your focus. Here at The Elms for example, there is a local croquet club that many of our residents are apart of. There is also a local walking club that get together a few times per week.

Exercise doesn’t have to be about pounding the weights and running all day on the treadmill, but more something that we can enjoy and not be intimidated by. This is especially true the more we age, as its vital that we look after ourselves to ensure we maintain our independence. The secret to maintaining a consistent approach to exercise is to find something you enjoy doing…. And keep doing it!

Lincoln Cathedral

Lincoln Cathedral stood for almost 300 years as the tallest building in the world. The cathedral is filled with intricate detail varying from Norman styling in the age of William conqueror, all the way to gothic style detailing. The Cathedral is covered in fine carvings and detailing.

Lincoln Cathedral also benefits from having one of the only original four remaining Magna Carte documents in existence. It is the only one to bear the name of the city.

 

Lincoln Castle

While visiting Lincoln Cathedral, why not visit the magnificent Lincoln Castle at the same time. Located a short walk from the Cathedral they make the ideal pair of attractions.

Why not take a walk along the medieval wall and get magnificent views over Lincolnshire, then visit the Victorian Prison located within the grounds and immerse yourselves in the life and routine of Victorian prisoners.

 

Doddington Hall & Gardens

The historical hall and gardens of Doddington offers an experience of family living through the ages. Doddington Hall was built in 1600 and has never been sold.

Medieval Bishops Palace

Located almost in the shadow of the hugely popular Lincoln Cathedral. The Bishops palace has views over the historical parts of Lincoln city and the countryside surrounding.

The palace was once one of the most important buildings in England. It was the administrative centre of the largest diocese in medieval England. The palace also benefits from the beautiful palace gardens that are ideal to relax in and enjoy some peace and tranquillity.

 

Jew’s House

The Jews House is located in one of the oldest building in Lincoln. The Jews restaurant offers the finest food served by the friendliest staff, in a relaxing and warming atmosphere.

St Mary Magdalene

The St Mary Magdalene church was built in 1317, over what was previously an older church, which was knocked down during the extension of Lincoln Cathedral. The church was also designed with a barrel roof, which has proved to be very popular with visitors and is a great feat of engineering.

The church holds regular services, in which all visitors are welcome. Regular concerts are also held at the venue, throughout the year.

Enjoying Retirement Home Living

Is Over 55 Living Tough in The Modern Age?

Are you over 55 and worried about your finances or what the future may hold? A recent study shows that more than 60% of over 55’s worry about their finances and getting through to retirement with very minimal financial worries.

So what are the solutions?

Here at The Elms, we’ve put together an exclusive retirement park / village, where over 50s can reside and see out their retirement and beyond in dedicated retirement homes. Most of the residents had the notion and vision that they could clear up their finances by selling their home and freeing up equity by moving into a retirement property here at The Elms and enjoy park home living.

So is one possible solution to downgrade the size of your existing home?

Many of our residents have done exactly this, and are now living comfortably within the confines of a retirement village. This is an excellent way to really invest in your future and free up equity.

With house prices at an all time high here in the UK, many people in general are downgrading the size of their home to save money. This is why there has been a boost in sales over the last decade for people choosing to purchase and live in a dedicated retirement village. Here at The Elms, we have over 339 properties that are classified as retirement properties, where people over the age of 50 can purchase a home, just as normal, but here you will be moving into a retirement community – where you will be surrounded by other people over the age of 50. This is by no means a care home, but a village where over 50s can reside. It doesn’t matter whether you’re retired or not, if your over 50, then you meet the requirements to purchase a retirement property here at The Elms.

But what can buying a retirement property achieve?

So whilst you think that life over 55 is quite a daunting prospect, here at The Elms we offer a viable solution for you to free up any equity you have on your existing home, and possibly even live mortgage free!

Just like one of our residents Sally Young –

The Elms – Far From a Retirement Home!

Ever wondered what Retirement Home Living is all about? Well here at The Elms, we can’t really give you the answer to that! The simple answer as to why is because The Elms is not a retirement home! We are a dedicated retirement village – where over 50s can live independently and purchase a home just like any other. What makes us different is that we have simply set up a retirement village for people over 50 years old – which is far from the traditional retirement home philosophy!

And this is the story of how The Elms has come to be….

Back in the 1970’s, the Kinch Group acquired a portion of land in Lincolnshire with the vision of building homes on this plot to be sold independently. The vision was then refined, with the intent of making this space a dedicated retirement community, where homes are sold to those over 50 years old – not the traditional retirement home living type property, but an actual property that you completely own. And live independently through.

From the 80s to today!

And with this in mind… The Elms was born…

The idea was never to build a retirement home where senior people could simply see out the remaining years of their life. The plan was to build independent homes where those over 50 could purchase the homes and be amongst like-minded people. This is why the Torksey Lock area was chosen as the destination area, as it has easy access to the things that we need within everyday life, and is located in a peaceful Lincolnshire location.

Amazing transformation at the park

And this is why our properties are in such high demand…

At the moment, we are at capacity with our properties in terms of plots. So there is no space now to purchase any plots. However, properties do become readily available and you can also check local property sites to see which of the properties the residents have listed for sale. Click to view our Available Properties.

The Elms through the years

So why do people choose to move to a dedicated retirement area…

So lets confirm, we are not a retirement home and residents here at The Elms do not live the quote ‘retirement home living’ lifestyle.

When our residents moved here, it was with the intention to enjoy the more active years of their life. Not to simply let life slip them by. The concept of a dedicated retired area is not a new one.

However, it is one that is now quickly becoming an option for many people over 50 and retirees in general. As financially, this can be an excellent chance for you to free up some equity and really enjoy these stages of your life.

Retirement Loneliness: Are Retirement Villages The Answer to Combat Retirement Isolation?

The thought of Retirement Loneliness can be a very scary but realistic prospect for many. And lets face it; no one wants to live in a care home. But a novel concept that has been in the UK for many years now is gaining much traction. So are Park Homes and Retirement Villages and truly the better alternative to care homes?

Are dedicated Retirement Villages the answer to the retirement loneliness epidemic?

The idea of a dedicated retirement village was brought to the marketplace through the momentum it gained in the USA. And it’s widely becoming a popular choice for many over 50’s here in the UK, as it isn’t necessarily the elderly who can benefit from such places.

Croquet Club in Torksey Tai Chi at The Elms Red Hatters

But lets think about the typical journey that people take to retirement in the first place. Well, having spent most of your life working, it seems as though people often look forward to the day they retire, as this can be the start of that path to freedom you dreamt of. However, many people are further saving their equity by investing in dedicated retirement properties….

But you maybe thinking well how do these dedicated retirement places combat retirement loneliness? Well, its often stated that people suffer from depression as a result of going from working all their lives, to then ultimately having time to yourself, and not knowing what to do with it.

It can be quite sobering when all those around you are getting on with their lives in a world that is rapidly changing and evolving. The good news is however, that you too can make a change for the better. And not even experience what retirement loneliness feels like.

Combating Retirement Loneliness  Living Independently For Seniors John's Woodland Opening

The main thing that people struggle with is trying to find a routine to follow on a daily basis. It’s hard to go from working full time to then retiring and not having the same schedule or even an outline of a plan on a daily basis.

But how can retirement villages combat this?

Well, with a retirement village, you have the convenience of living as you normally would, but you would just be in a community of other people just like yourselves who are also retirees. The benefit of this is that you can instantly form friendships with like-minded people around you, and begin to fill your days with activities alongside your new friends.

Here at The Elms, we have created a fantastic retirement community all situated within rural Lincolnshire. Within our community, there is never a sense of Retirement Loneliness from our residents – as there is always something happening here.

And this is the key; if you find somewhere that takes away the feeling of isolation, then it definitely combats that lonely feeling. If you have kids or grandkids that have been to university away from home, then they too will find it strange at first, but they soon adapt. The same can be said for our residents, who at first are slightly taken back by the change, but they also soon adapt. Its never too late to start a new chapter in your life, and its not too late to combat that lonely feeling after retirement.
