One of the biggest benefits that 55+ communities offer is the community part. You have a built-in network of peers right there in the neighborhood that work together to advocate certain causes, such as the preservation of nature and character of the community in which they live.
Some of the ways 55+ communities can help build a sense of community are:
- Connecting residents to their environment by fostering a sense of engagement within the community.
- Setting up daily, weekly and monthly special activities that encourage sharing and fostering interests such as religion, hobbies, and games.
- Resident-organized gatherings, group outings, bus trips, and community dinners are also great activities that promote a sense of pride.
- Searching for opportunities to get involved in surrounding communities allows residents to partner with area brick-and-mortar organizations such as churches, schools, and hospitals. Residents can gain a sense of worth by being able to give back in ways such as tutoring, teaching and mentoring.
Additionally, many families worry about their loved ones living alone as they age. Sometimes the decision to move to assisted living is as much about that fear as any day-to-day needs a senior has. 55+ communities help address that fear. When you know your loved one lives around other seniors that know them and all keep an eye out for each other, those concerns evaporate.
