What Are the Perks of Living in a 55+ Community
Wednesday, 31 March 2021

55 plus communities are restricted to seniors above the age of 55 years. They are an attractive choice for retirees, pre-retirees, and empty nesters who want a peaceful residential area without the nuisances of partying youths at night or children interfering with their good time at the swimming pool. Although they are often referred to as retirement communities, you do not have to be retired to live in one. Deciding to move into a 55 plus community before you need nursing care is the best decision a senior can make. Here is why.

Remain active

 
55+ active adult communities are beneficial to seniors because they emphasize active lifestyles. They have fitness activities and amenities designed to keep them on their feet and active mentally and physically. These communities organize classes and recreational activities to keep older adults engaged. They provide activities and amenities such as swimming pools, golf courses, fitness facilities, field trips, museum trips, etc.
 

Easy accessibility of amenities

 
As a senior, you do not have the energy to drive around attending events or looking for amenities to meet your needs. A 55 and over community has all the amenities you need in the community. These communities have facilities such as fitness centers, entertainment joints, adult classes, special events, etc. Basically, 55 plus communities are built with the needs of seniors in mind.
 

You don't have to worry about maintenance and repairs

 
Most of the 55 plus communities have the arrangement to take care of the community's repair and maintenance needs. Most of them have workers on-site who mow the lawns, remove snow and maintain the community in good condition. Living in a 55 plus community means that you don't have to worry about who will mow your lawn the next month or fix a broken drainage system etc. However, not all 55 plus communities have the same provisions, so you need to ask all the critical questions to find the best community.
 

Pay a single monthly payment for everything

 
As a senior, everything you have been doing in your younger years always seems overwhelming and tiresome, such as calculating different monthly bills and keeping up with the payments. Living in a 55 plus community is beneficial because you don't have to worry about paying property taxes and other living expenses such as internet access, transport, etc. When you live in a 55 plus community, you pay a single monthly payment for all your living expenses, and you may discover that living there minimizes your living costs. For example, you don't need a car since all the amenities are close, so you save more on transport costs.
 

Associate with peers

 
Another perk of living in a 55 plus community is that you get to make friends of the same age group. You have the freedom to join clubs such as yoga or music classes to socialize more with your peers.
 

Enjoy a peaceful environment

 
The only residents allowed in a 55 plus community are adults aged 55 years or above. The community is peaceful. You don't have to worry about rowdy youths disturbing your daytime nap or kids splashing water around in a swimming pool when all you want to do is have a good swim.
