With so many baby boomers reaching retirement age, there’s no question that 55+ doesn’t look the way it used to. Seniors look healthier, younger and lead quite active lifestyles. However, priority changes come with age. Personal desires change as well. Seniors want to spend their time doing new things and surround themselves with people who contribute meaningfully to their lives.

 

Amenities

One of the most appealing things about going on vacation is to enjoy the amenities available. In a 55+ community, life is like that all the time. Most of these upscale communities feature daily planned activities and meals, a wide variety of club house games, pools, 24-hour security, exercise rooms and much more.

 

Continued Learning and an Active Lifestyle

Two of the most important things for seniors to do as they age is to keep their brains and bodies healthy. Maintaining brain health prevents Alzheimer’s and improves memory and cognitive function. Keeping the body healthy and active increases bone density, keeps the blood flowing, increases muscle mass and keeps the body’s systems functioning well for longer.

 

Homes Designed to Meet Your Changing Needs

With age also comes pragmatic thinking. It’s important to plan for the health changes that could come with age. One of the easiest ways to do this is to move into a 55+ community before you have any health issues. These communities typically have small hospitals or hospices located right on-site along with several doctors. Local homecare provider organizations also have relationships with all these communities. Your home will come equipped with handicapped accessible features or it will be easy to install them when necessary.

 

Quiet

One of the most noticeably pleasant things about living in a 55+ community is the peace and quiet. It is extremely relaxing.
