Today’s seniors are toppling expectations by pursuing the kind of active living that many resort-like senior independent living centers offer. We’re standing by to connect you with active adult communities near you – free of charge!
Retiring is not what it used to be. Images of sweet old ladies knitting scarves and men gathered around television screens watching game shows are tired and outdated. Today’s retirees are largely ready to embark on their second career, travel, get involved in charities or politics, or achieve new levels of physical fitness.
The desire for this kind of active living is bringing about a whole new type of senior independent living community. Large, resort-like independent living centers or communities run like home owners associations and provide amenities such as hiking trails, pools, spas, fitness centers, golf courses, hobby rooms and entertainment centers.
User-owned homes, cottages, townhomes or condominiums are often uniquely planned around ample green space, amenities and even active adult retail centers. Medical facilities are rarely included on-site, unless the active living community is part of a continuing care retirement community (CCRC) that’s created specifically for multiple levels of senior care.

Today’s senior independent living communities offer amenities that leave adult children and grandchildren jealous! But thankfully, indoor/outdoor swimming pools, fitness facilities, parks, entertainment centers and other perks are often available for limited visitor use as well. When you move to an active living community, don’t be surprised when your grown children and grandchildren start showing up for visits more often than they used to!
