When the time comes to retire and relax into the next phase of life, many adults choose to move into 55+ apartment communities where they can enjoy all the benefits of an active adult community. Read on to explore some of the freedoms and luxuries that will enhance your life when you choose living in an active retirement community.
Sometimes referred to as retirement living communities, 55+ apartments are neighborhoods designed to give active adults the opportunity to more fully take advantage of their senior years. When people retire, and the children have all moved out of the house, changes in lifestyle can sometimes lead to a sense of social isolation or boredom.
55+ apartments are a great option for people who do not require support for the necessary tasks of day to day life. Instead, they can enjoy a sense of community, including resort style amenities, fun activities, and like-minded neighbors.

There are more advantages to life in a 55+ apartment community than you may realize. In addition to having neighbors with common interests and not having to worry about crying babies or loud all-night parties, there is also the freedom from many home maintenance tasks. There is also the convenience to shopping and entertainment, security, and new friends.
As with any choice of living arrangements, location is of key importance. The most desirable location for active adults is a quiet and peaceful community within easy walking distance or a short drive of shopping and entertainment. Banking, groceries, medical clinics, theaters, churches, and boutiques should all be readily accessible, but the noise of traffic and the hustle and bustle of the city should feel far away while at home.
One of the best things about living in 55+ apartments is not having to handle all the tedious tasks of home and garden maintenance by yourself. The types of time-consuming jobs that usually result in a stiff back or sore joints, like mowing the lawn, clearing out the rain gutters, trimming hedges, weeding, and so on, are all taken care of by the maintenance and landscaping staff.
Rent, gas, water, internet, and all other utilities are conveniently included at a flat rate, so there will be no unwelcome surprises. This is great news for people living on a fixed income, enabling them to better plan their budget for travel, hobbies, and leisure activities. Furthermore, many retirement living communities even include light housekeeping as part of the standard rental agreement.
No matter where your passions lie, you will have more time to pursue your hobbies and to discover new ones when you take advantage of the more relaxed pace of life that comes with moving to 55+ apartments. High quality active adult communities offer fun organized activities and outings to help you create and foster new interests–as well as new friendships. You will be free to take part in events including exercise classes, community outings, trivia nights, happy hours, book clubs, continuing education courses, and much more.
