Benefits of living in a 55+ Community

You turned 55. Now what? You realize that life is changing. Your responsibilities are different for sure, now that you’re retired or about to be, but the most important change is that your needs and desires are not the same anymore.

After all the hard work invested in your family and career for decades, it’s time to prioritize your happiness and tranquility for as long as you can. This is the thought lots of 55+ adults have in mind when they choose to move to an Active Adult Community, but of course, it’s a big step that should be thought through. 

 

How can a 55+ Community benefit your lifestyle?

Less maintenance

You will live in a pleasing neighborhood that is always well maintained by the Homeowners Association. Your only concern would be paying the HOA dues and the usual upkeep of your own home while you focus your time on the things you want to do without worrying about your yard and landscape. You can relax and take your time, because, at this stage of your life, you’re ready, willing, and able to take it easy.

Social activities along with people that share your interests

Moving to a quiet community doesn’t mean your life will be less varied. To the contrary, a wide range of amenities specifically designed to promote an active and healthy lifestyle will be held in vast outdoor spaces shared by the community. Active Adult Communities bring together caring and friendly neighbors that guarantee you won’t feel alone or bored, while still providing the desired privacy of a single-family home in a vast community. 

This type of lifestyle is often the catalyst to develop tight relationships between families, so people can support each other and will have your back anytime you need a neighbor.

A community you can feel part of

People with similar age, interests, experiences and worries will be your new neighbors and you’ll get to share time and activities together, allowing you to form bonds and support each other. The much more relaxed schedule that you and your neighbor have now will allow for available time to share in community. This lifestyle keeps you social, busy and having fun.

Living among a group of people that can share cultural changes, similar priorities, experiences and struggles in life is a wholesome experience for many people who are 55+. Reaching a certain point of your life might come with feelings of disconnection from society once your children leave the nest, but partnering up with people that “get you” gives you the confidence to try new things, have experiences and share your life once again.

Quiet and pleasant neighborhood

No more loud neighbors that disturb your peace while you focus on your desired projects. Being surrounded by peers means young families, kids and young adults won’t disturb your peace. No more parties running late into the night or children yelling.

Of course, this doesn’t mean that your own family members under the age of 55 can’t visit, but be sure to check the community’s policies about visitors, social events, noise, etc.
