Active Lifestyle Communities: Community Involvement

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.

What defines an Active Adult Lifestyle Community?

Adult lifestyle communities aren’t so different from other residential communities. Aside from their age requirements, most are designed with a retirement-friendly lifestyle in mind.

What Defines an Active Adult Lifestyle Community

These communities can be comprised of single-family houses, condominiums, or townhomes, with units that are owned by the resident. Often, this type of community will be built near shopping, restaurants, parks, and other attractions, since residents are still eager to live an active lifestyle into their retirement years.

Also, unlike some other senior living options, active adult communities do not have on-site dining facilities for residents, nor do they provide any type of healthcare services. However, these communities are conveniently located close to hospitals and other medical facilities.

In a nutshell, these communities exist for people who not only share your interests and passions, and who will also expose you to new and exciting opportunities and become great friends along your journey.

An adult lifestyle community is designed for adults over 55 who are active and independent. If you are too young to be in a retirement home with meals and everyday care you pay for but do want a low maintenance lifestyle, the Villages of Sally Creek is the solution. Sally Creek gives you that flexibility by giving you the ability to transition and downsize to a simpler lifestyle, where you can choose a townhome or a detached bungalow family home.
