What is Active Adult Living?

Are you or your loved one considering a move to senior housing? As you explore your options, you may come across the term “active adult community” or “senior 55+ community.” What do these terms mean and why should you consider downsizing to a community designed for active adults?

The Definition of Active Adult Communities

For baby boomers nearing retirement age, active adult communities are growing in popularity. These communities are designed for middle-aged adults, usually 55 and over, who want to live independently but still have access to resort-style amenities, community programs and convenient services.

Active adult communities like Bella Vita are the perfect option for older adults who are seeking a low-maintenance lifestyle, but don’t require access to senior care services like assisted living or memory support. Active adult living is geared for adults who are capable of managing daily household and personal care tasks on their own without any support from an aide or trained healthcare professional.

Landscaping and maintenance are included as part of your monthly fees, and you’ll find several resort-style amenities for your comfort and convenience such as housekeeping services, concierge assistance and several shared spaces for games, movies and crafts.

The Benefits of 55+ Active Living Communities

  1. Prime location – A good location is key to active adult living. Active adult communities are typically located near restaurants, shopping centers and cultural attractions so you are just steps away from everything you need. Bella Vita is conveniently located in Aurora right next to The Gardens on Havana shopping center which offers grocery shopping, banking, access to medical professionals, etc. Plus, Bella Vita has easy access to buses, I-70, and I-225 when you’re ready for new adventures.
  2. Low maintenance living – Not having to worry about lawn care, appliance repairs and the other hassles of owning a home is one of the best parts of choosing a 55+ community. Many of these communities include these maintenance services as part of your monthly fee so that you can spend more time doing the things you enjoy.
  3. Engaging events and enriching programs – Active adult communities aren’t just about having a place to live. Residents are also choosing a vibrant lifestyle with plenty of opportunities to engage, mingle, learn, and grow. You can expect a full calendar of activities with active adult living including book clubs, continuing education courses, exercise classes, community outings, trivia nights and more.
