In BAAN SAMMI Nature Resort, accommodation units (bungalows, pavilions) are offered for rent especially for seniors or retirees. What characterizes this privately owned residential site with regard to its suitability for living for the elderly?
● Retirement residence, seniors residence, retirement homes ?
Instead of luxury size, prestigious architectural style and parks that characterize a residence, BAAN SAMMI offers manageable privacy in individual living space: Little bungalows and pavilions in a simple architectural style, and a large natural garden, for the independent elderly.
● Seniors apartment, seniors dormitory, seniors commune ?
Each person or couple lives in privacy in an own house with garden. There is no dormitory regulation or house sharing.
● Seniors housing community ?
You can live independently in BAAN SAMMI, though you will live in a resort community. Housing community and household community is not intended. A sense of community develops among the people living in the resort on the basis to respect privacy and to take responsibility. Your own house and your own garden are private areas, which are not at disposal to anyone else.
● Living abroad as a senior — in Thailand ?
The advantages of living in Thailand clearly outweigh the disadvantages. Warm and non-muggy climate throughout the year, never too cold, never extremely hot, healty food, high quality health care, low living costs are dominant plus points! The resort community can help facilitate the approach to Thai culture.
● Assisted living, care for the elderly ?
Care, before or when it becomes necessary, needs to be organized by the tenant on his own responsibility in cooperation with the resort community which will assist. Generally, it is possible to temporarily or permanently employ a kitchen maid or room maid, also to provide a (Thai) caretaker with temporary or long-term accommodation in a nearby pavilion or a neighboring house. However, this causes additional costs.
● Option to purchase an accommodation ?
In BAAN SAMMI you can rent an accommodation. A long-term lease-like contract is not ruled out, but you should consider to stay here for one to two years before you are serious about a long bond.
● Active living in retirement ?
Individual and joint interests and activities can be deployed, e.g. concerning Internet and other media, gardening, cycling, traveling, learning Thai language. It is particularly important to make personal contacts in the first years, not restricted to the resort community.
