Retire Early Lifestyle,

assisted living locations in Mexico and
Recently, I visited a
new community at Lakeside called La Pueblita. Itís a new concept, an
all-inclusive-living-and-access-to-health-care combination that I think will
appeal to many.
Itís a project that I have watched since 2012.
Now, itís actually being built and
there is attractive physical evidence to show you!
Letís take a look.
The community building under
Having heard that
La Pueblita actually broke ground
and had some casita models ready to show, my girlfriend and I arrived at the
Open House about 10:30 am that Saturday morning.
We were a bit early, which gave us some
time to walk around the area. Karen (The Senior Solution Director) had
Carolina drive us around the grounds to check them out. It was Carolina's
physician father who had the concept of La Pueblita many years ago, and it
was his dream to build an all-inclusive retirement community that had access
to medical care included in the membership.
The road where more casitas are being
Driving us around in an 8-seater golf
cart, Carolina showed us where other casitas are being built.
There is still a lot to do, but it was
good to finally see some action on this project!

The concept of La Pueblita is that you
will have an active retirement community with the option to age in place,
including a memory care unit if needed.

A full-circle tour of the grounds brought
us back to the Club House area. You can read the sign that says this Club
House will offer a lounge, bar, gym, a restaurant with private dining, a
main courtyard, and a swimming pool.
There will also be a library, an
auditorium, a drugstore, rehabilitation clinic, a grocery store, walking
paths and a place for physical therapy.
The Center for Healthy Living will have a
variety of services including: Personalized fitness and wellness services,
cardio/strength training, group fitness classes, cognitive enhancement
programs, and salůn and spa treatments

At about 11 o'clock the attendees were
grouped together and brought to the display model which was a two bedroom, 2
One could bring their own furniture to
the casita, or have a decorator help them with the purchase of furniture
like this to fill the home.
Wheelchair access bathroom
Both bathrooms were wheelchair access.
Glass doors had large openings, and
everything in the casita was one floor. No little steps up and down to trip
on or get in the way of a walker or wheelchair.
Front room area
The front room area was one large room
with the dining room and living room open to each other.
It gave a spacious, light-filled feeling.
At La Pueblita, one pays rent (which
covers utilities and more) and then one also purchases a membership to
receive other benefits.

with other amenities available ďa la carteĒ at regular prices.
The casita was an open air plan and
focused on efficiency.
The kitchen comes with the refrigerator,
an oven, microwave, dishwasher and flattop stove. A place for a washer and
dryer is beside the refrigerator behind the paneled door.

This patio has a small back yard for
enjoying, or perhaps for growing some herbs. Today, it looks out on the
reception area for the open house event.

This is the garage area. In this
particular case, it was open air on one side, and tiled on the flooring.
