Questions to Ask When Looking for a 55-plus Community
Posted: July 30, 2019
As adults reach the age of retirement, they often are ready to simplify life.
One great way to make your life easier is to move to an adults-only 55+ community, such as Bella Vita. Benefits include:
- No more lawn care or home maintenance
- A great opportunity to downsize and get rid of stuff that has been weighing you down
- Meet new neighbors and experience rich community life without the noisy party lifestyle of many all-ages apartment communities
Learn more about our residents and their experiences at our senior living community. You’ll find stories and reviews about the joys and comforts of retirement living.
Several questions come up as people consider moving to a 55+ community. Here are a few that we’ve been asked the most:
- How active is the community I’m considering?
The answer varies, depending on what your interests are. At Bella Vita, many residents join together for events such as exercise in our fitness center, barbeques on our beautiful landing, dog walking, shopping at nearby retail establishments and joining together for a meal at one of the many restaurants in our neighborhood.
- Can I afford it?
Moving to a 55+ community such as Bella Vita offers many financial advantages. You’ll no longer have separate bills for utilities, trash pickup, lawn care or maintenance – it’s all included in one monthly fee. As you consider moving, it’s often a good idea to talk with your financial advisor to see when and how your move will work best.
- Over the long term, will I be able to stay?
At Bella Vita, community means more than a building. Your neighbors often become a caring and loving part of your life. They’ve got your back. And yet, everyone’s privacy is always respected. Also, our apartments were designed with mobility in mind. If your physical needs increase, accessible entrances, full elevators and more allow you to continue to thrive.
