If you or a loved one are looking to live a more relaxed lifestyle in your golden years, then you may be looking for a new home that can accommodate your desired lifestyle. Many people who are in a similar boat find themselves considering or opting for an active senior living community. If you’ve never heard of this term before, then you may wonder what it is and how it can be beneficial to you. Here’s more information about what an active senior living community is and why you may want to consider residing in one.
A senior living community is a community that is typically designed for individuals 55 years old and up. These communities offer low-maintenance living for their residents. Residents don’t have to worry about maintaining their yard or the exterior of their property. This helps seniors to live independently, without having to worry about major types of exterior maintenance.
Another element that defines active senior living communities is community amenities. These amenities may include things such as a community room, billiard room, and much more. All of these help seniors to stay social and active. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, seniors who are aged 65 or older should get at least 2.5 hours of moderate aerobic exercise every week. This may include water aerobics, swimming, or brisk walking.
Age-Appropriate Activities or Outings
Lastly, active senior living communities offer age-appropriate activities or outings. This may include themed nights in the community and many programs, including where you can stay social and active. At Connect55+, we offer energetic and dynamic programs, so you can have fun exercising or enjoy classes where you can socialize with other residents.
An active senior living community is designed to give seniors the lifestyle and amenities they desire, in a quiet community with other seniors who have similar needs. This can help you to remain active and engaged in your golden years. If you or a loved one are looking for the perfect new place to call home, then we invite you to come tour our facility.
