The Benefits of Moving to a 55+ Community
Before we dive into the benefits of moving to a 55+ community, we should probably better explain what they are exactly. While you might already have an idea of what senior living communities are like, we’re here to tell you how it really is. Active adult communities are typically low-maintenance or maintenance-free and are age-restricted. This means a lot, if not all, of the landscaping and the exterior maintenance of the home is taken care of for you. Things like roof and gutter repairs, grass mowing, lawn fertilization, and more. And age-restricted means that at least 80% of residences must have at least one person over the age of 55, according to the Fair Housing Act.
You might have also thought these communities are also for those who are retired, but we’re happy to share that that’s not true. If you’re on the fence about making the move to a 55+ community, there are several perks and benefits you should consider such as:
Maintenance-Free Living – No more weekends wasted mowing or canceling plans due to having to maintain your home’s exteriors. You deserve to spend your time doing the things you love – whatever that may be!
Rightsized Living Spaces – At this stage of life, your wants and needs for your home have changed. You may notice unused rooms collecting dust or a closed-off kitchen in your current home keeping you from connecting with guests and family. Rightsizing means moving to a home that fits your current needs more comfortably.
Universal Home Design Features – NewStyle Communities is a big fan of simplifying the lives of those 55 and better. Our homes are built with features that make it easy to transition into and live in your new home. They’re built with wider doorways, zero-entry showers, elongated toilets, lever door hardware, and many accessibility features throughout.
Fun & Friendly Like-Minded Neighbors – It’s important for anyone’s quality of life and mental health to have close social relationships. In an active adult community, you’ll have a range of new neighbors in the same age group that typically share similar interests.
Healthy Lifestyle & Amenities – From fitness centers and sports courts to swimming pools and clubhouses, these communities offer the best amenities to keep you staying active and healthy physically and mentally.
Convenient Locations – Especially with NewStyle Communities, you can rest assured that you’ll live in the most sought-after locations near everyday conveniences and local amenities like restaurants, parks, shopping, entertainment, and more.
