MYTH #1: Days are long and uneventful:

It’s true that your retirement comes with an abundance of free time, but it’s completely false that average, everyday moments can’t be exciting. In fact, when you’re here, the fun and excitement never stop… With endless social events and clubs, cocktails and gourmet meals down in the clubhouse, sports and recreation, house parties with neighbors, and private, personal courtyards for entertaining and relaxing, there’s always a new way to make your day as eventful as you want it to be.

MYTH #2: You won’t see your family:

When you move to a retirement community, you may feel as if there’s a barrier between you and your family, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. In one of our spacious and comfortable homes, your family is more than welcome to visit (and stay) whenever they want! Between your brand new, high-quality home, our warm and welcoming communities, and an abundance of activities for everyone to enjoy together, your family will absolutely love visiting your new home.

MYTH #3: Getting around will be difficult:

Our job is to make your life a breeze — that’s why we ensure you’ll never waste a minute worrying about accessibility. Our 1-story homes are all created with age-in-place designs, which means that every important component is built to suit your needs, now and in the future.

MYTH #4: You’ll miss your old kitchen:

There’s nothing quite like the feeling of your kitchen. As the heart of any home, this special room is where some of your greatest memories are made and shared. While it seems difficult to part with your kitchen, we guarantee that you’ll fall head over heels in love with your new one. Filled with natural light and an aura of happiness, our gourmet kitchens come complete with large center islands, and a charming, cozy design that’ll make you feel right at home the moment you see it.

MYTH #5: Traveling won’t be easy:

Are you ready to check a few boxes off of your bucket list? If you’ve always wanted to travel, whether to a new continent or to a new town, now’s the time to spread your wings and fly. Because our homes are maintenance-free, you’ll never have to stress over the upkeep of your home while you’re away. As you’re off exploring new lands and diving into adventures, you can rest assured that your home is taken care of, and will be just as you left it when you return.

Retirement is an experience unlike any other, and we believe that yours should be even better than the one you’ve dreamed about. In a NewStyle community and home, your specific needs come first, so each and every day is brighter than the last.
