For people over 55, giving up a long lived-in home in favor of an active adult community can be a big decision. As you enter a new phase of your life, though, you may discover that you have time on your hands and would rather do fun things than deal with the responsibilities that come along with homeownership. Moving to an apartment or cottage in an active adult community may be the perfect solution, with benefits you might not even realize. Let’s look at some signs that you may be ready to start your new 55+ chapter.
- If you’re invested in living a healthy lifestyle, active adult apartments are a great choice. Taking care of your health is important at any age, and that includes eating a nutritious diet and exercising regularly, as well as staying mentally stimulated. Apartment communities often have onsite dining and beautiful kitchens so that you can prepare your own healthy meals or have them prepared for you. There are also fitness centers and opportunities to exercise with other people, as well as other communal fitness activities and health seminars that help keep you on your toes mentally and physically.
- If you’re someone who craves connection, apartment living is perfect. Adults sometimes have trouble making new friends or maintaining a social life, but active living apartments make it easy. You’ll be steps away from friendly neighbors, with the option of scheduled activities to help you stay active and engaged.
- If you want to skip tedious household chores, consider an apartment. Owning your home can be a blessing, but it can also be a burden. It seems like there’s always another repair or more maintenance that needs to be done. If you’re ready to give up the hassles of handling all of that on your own, you may be ready for an apartment. In a luxury apartment or cottage in an active adult community, you can relax and live a stress-free and maintenance-free life, knowing that someone else is handling all the chores. Instead of working on your house, you can focus on doing the things you really want to do.
- If you’re ready for fun, it’s all right outside your door in an active adult community. A fitness center, recreational activities, a pool, beautiful outdoor spaces, classes, and scheduled events are all waiting for you when you move to an active adult living community. You can get in a workout, have coffee with a friend, or just take a swim or a walk, enjoying yourself without ever leaving the property.
