Where To Begin

Retirement Community Living for 55+: How to Know if You’re Ready

Over the past few decades, active adult communities have become a trendy option for empty-nesters seeking to downsize. These communities are also known as 55+ adult communities, catering to those aged 55 and older.

An active adult community offers a great way of living for retirees or those without kids living at home anymore. Compared to a traditional senior living community, an active adult community offers amenities, activities, events, and more. In addition to the many things to do, this type of community often offers health care facilities nearby, low-maintenance homes, and plenty of services to make life easier and more enjoyable.

Knowing if you’re ready is essential if you’re considering moving to an active adult community. How exactly do you know when it’s time for a retirement community? There’s no perfect age and time to transition into a retirement community. The choice belongs to you, and it’s a personal decision that will work for everyone in different stages. But if you want an easy way of living that gives you plenty of time to do the things you love, there’s no need to wait! 


Key Advantages of Living in a 55+ All-Inclusive Active Adult Community

Considering the reasons to reside in an all-inclusive active adult community is essential. Below are some of the benefits associated with this lifestyle that may help align you with your choice to embrace it.  

Amenities and Activities

An active adult community is designed around an appealing amenities package and regular activities and events. At Bella Vita you will enjoy an active adult life that includes a well-equipped fitness center, open 24 hours, a theater room with large-screen TV, terrace with spectacular view of the front range, and much more. You’ll likely enjoy all types of classes, group activities, and regular events, such as concerts, movies, or bingo nights.

No-Maintenance Housing

Housing in a 55+ adult community will provide no-maintenance or repairs, no outdoor landscaping or mowing.  Communities, such as Bella Vita, provide a concierge service and even bi-weekly housekeeping that is included as part of your rent. Many older adults find downsizing or moving to a smaller space appealing. Downsizing and living in a smaller space with less stuff can make life easier and more enjoyable.

Safety and Security

Older adults who live alone are at a higher risk of burglaries, assaults, and scams. A retirement community like Bella Vita is a safe and secure place that offers protection and peace of mind.
