Independent living communities are also known as retirement communities, retirement homes or senior housing. For today’s baby boomers and seniors, retirement living communities offer a broad range of intellectual, physical and social activities to enhance golden years’ enjoyment.
ENJOYING THE GOLDEN YEARS OF RETIREMENT
The retirement years should be enjoyable. In fact, some say they’re the best years of life since you don’t have to deal with the stresses of mortgage, kids and jobs.
When a senior chooses an independent living community, he or she has the physical and mental capacity to live independently, but wants companionship from others his/her age. And independent senior living provides not only socialization, it also provides fun activities and stimulation.
Independent living communities offer specific services and amenities that cater to senior citizens and promote active, healthy lifestyles for the golden years. Here are a few of the active lifestyle offerings at retirement living communities:
- Community involvement
- Continuing sense of self
- Amenity-filled, maintenance-free living
- On-site and off-site activities
