New seniors desire the good life. They want to be part of a meaningful community, live in beautiful apartments, have an active lifestyle, indulge in rich cultural experiences, enjoy spa facilities, swimming pools, hobbies, and good food. They seek a doctor who knows them, a caretaker at the entrance, and a team that takes care of all the routines and cleanliness, freeing them to simply enjoy life. This is the model of the Palace cha by the Azrieli Group, the luxurious protected housing in Israel, and it’s no wonder that so many are joining, and the network is growing rapidly.
This phenomenon is expanding and not just in Israel: with the increase in life expectancy, more and more people want a higher quality of life. Even people who were once considered elderly realize they can continue to lead active and fulfilling lives, planning their new life stage after retirement.
These individuals are sophisticated and aware, ready to face the challenges that come with old age, worrying about future health issues, social isolation after retirement, and desiring to remain independent. The ideal is to find a model that ensures both physical and health security on one hand, and the freedom to enjoy life on the other. How do you achieve this solution? It seems the key lies in proper future planning and joining a community of like-minded people who allow this combination. Iris Cohen, CEO of the Palace network by Azrieli, says, “Many studies indicate that people in their third age need social security. They want to be part of an active community and not be alone. It’s important for them to be active, independent, manage their own lives, and not burden their children.
“Physical security is also very important. Having a nurse and a doctor who know you, knowingthere’s security at the entrance to the residence, they want to preserve their cognitive abilities.
“Today, it’s known that among the factors that delay dementia are social connections, sportsactivities, proper nutrition, and music. This is the essence of the Palace network-protectedhousing by Azrieli Group.
Upgrading to the Good Life
At the luxurious end of this spectrum, there is one outstanding example: the Palace network by Azrieli Group, one of the great successes of luxurious protected housing in Israel. The reason for its tremendous success stems from Azrieli’s deep under standing of the needs and preferences of the elderly. Even a brief visit leaves an impression of the high quality of life in each of the Palace residences: a luxurious lobby with recreational areas and seating, a swimming pool, a gym, a restaurant, a library, an auditorium, cultural and sports activities. When you add personalized medical care for each resident, along with surveillance and security services, it’s easy to understand why they are willing to start new lives there.
Shul amit, a Palace resident in Tel Aviv, says, “I moved to Palace Tel Aviv because its location is perfect for me. Everything that matters to me is within walking distance-the museum, the Ariela library, the opera, the Theatre, concerts, exhibitions. I continued everything I had before, plus the pampering of all the daily things I no longer have to deal with: house maintenance, national insurance, mail. I’m protected, independent, and free to do only what interests me.
“Tzipi Robin, who moved with her husband from a two-story house in Omer to a functional apartment in Palace Lehavim, testifies that the location, half an hour from their previous home, is excellent for them. “We love the Negev and are familiar with everything the surroundings have to offer. Since the move, I have been living life just like a princess. We have everything here, and sometimes months go by without the need to go to Be’er Sheva.
“Iris Cohen adds: “Many move to protected housing because sometimes their current homes are too big for them, and it’s a waste of energy on cleaning or laundry and cooking. Here, we take care of everything: cleaning, cooking. Is the air conditioner broken? The faucet leaking? Just make a phone call. Everything is taken care of, and you can relax by the pool or attend a yoga class.
“If someone wants to cook in their own kitchen, they can do so. On other days, they can dine atone of the nearby restaurants or at the in-house restaurant. At Palace Azrieli, they emphasize that unlike other places, each residence has its own private chef.Gili Arslan, the chef of Palace Modi’in, proudly states, “In our restaurant, residents eat fresh food made on-site, not catering. We have a wide variety of salads, soups, meats, fish, supplements, and desserts. Forty percent of the residents come regularly. Some can cook in their apartment but prefer to come simply because they love the food.
“Quality and Strength of the Network
Sports and cultural activities are not conducted sparingly either. Hila Dotan, the sports manager of Palace Tel Aviv, describes, “There is a swimming pool, aqua aerobics and water aerobics classes, a fitness room with equipment tailored for the elderly, and a trainer who creates personalized training programs. The program includes options for outdoor activities such as walks in the park, weekly outings for sea activities, trips around the country of varying fitness levels, suitable for different residents.
“The fitness levels, it turns out, are very diverse-there are residents who hike parts of the IsraelNational Trail, changing sections each time. Others settle for exercising in a chair. Some are stillworking, volunteering, or active in various external frameworks.
Some of the activities are network-wide, connecting residents of different houses, as MichalHodeland, the culture and sports manager at the Palace network, describes, “We organize bridgecompetitions, swimming competitions, and ping pong tournaments for the entire network, or wemeet for a giant walk on the international walking day.”
The Azrieli Group provides amark of excellencethat attracts more andmore residents seeking toenjoy its economic power and proven capabilities, alongside the pampering standards-in allareas. You deserve it too.
