Reasons to Move to an Active Adult Community

February 8th, 2015 | By | Posted in Uncategorized

Active adult communities are designed for adults (typically 55 and over) who can care for themselves and want to continue to remain active, both in and out of their community. They are safe communities that include a wide variety of benefits for seniors. Take a tour of Pebble Creek homes for sale to find an adult community that best fits your needs and interests. Here are our top 5 reasons to move to an active adult community.

Lighten Your Workload

Active adult communities assume you can take care of your own basic needs and are not designed to help you with feeding or medications like in some communities. However, they will usually take care of most of the maintenance of your home and property, such as mowing the lawn and shoveling your driveway. These tasks can be difficult and even dangerous for seniors. By taking care of them for you, your adult community helps you safely stay independent for longer.

Become Part of a Community

We realize that change is difficult for many people, especially as you grow older. However, it’s easy to fit into an adult community. Most adult communities are age restricted, so the vast majority of people living there will be about the same age as you. This gives you a better chance at connecting with your new neighbors because you will most likely have similar interests and life experiences as other people there.

Enjoy the Facilities

Adult communities often include shared facilities like pools and golf courses that you will be able to enjoy. These are wonderful places to socialize with your new friends and neighbors, all while staying active at the same time. Many communities also have walking or biking trails, so you can choose to simply stroll around the neighborhood while catching up with friends.

Take a Class

Some active adult communities offer chances for you to continue learning new skills. Some partner with local community colleges to offer continuing education classes. Others provide classes in yoga or arts and crafts, such as knitting, crocheting, or pottery. Just because you’re retired doesn’t mean you have to stop learning new things!

Take a Trip

Most adult communities are located near metropolitan areas, and most provide shuttles into the city so you can shop and explore whenever you feel like getting out of the house. Many active adult communities also schedule special outings for residents, where you can take trips to nearby attractions like the theater, national parks, or famous landmarks.
