👍 The Top 5 Benefits of Living in a 55+ Community After Retirement

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Vero Beach

Have you just retired and are now planning to make a move? While transitioning from a home filled with fun memories to a 55+ community can be challenging, such a move has more benefits than you can imagine.


New construction 55 Plus Vero Beach FL is not only ideal for people who want to downsize and live a more maintenance-free lifestyle. More than anything, this community is perfect for residents who want to start a new chapter in their lives after retirement.


If you are still half-hearted about owning a home in 55 Plus Vero Beach FL, consider the following benefits of living in a 55+ community:


1. You Get to Enjoy Activities that are Fun and Good for Your Health


One of the many things that set 55+ communities apart from the rest is its emphasis on activity and fitness. Since most of the people living in these communities are not getting any younger, these communities are packed with fitness centers and recreation rooms that help seniors enjoy life and stay healthy at the same time.


Examples of activities that you can enjoy in a 55+ community are cooking classes, field trips, community picnics, game clubs, special interest programs and more.


2. You Get a Sense of Belongingness


The sense of belongingness and community that a 55+ neighborhood provides is different from that of a typical standalone residential neighborhood. This is because adults living in a 55+ community often have the same goal of creating lasting friendships and working together to advocate certain causes. The activities that are regularly held in retirement communities allow residents to get to know and build close relationships with one another.

3. You Enjoy a Sense of Autonomy


Most 55+ communities are located in convenient locations, where shopping malls, hospitals, churches, grocery stores, restaurants and other important establishments are just a stone’s throw away. If you prefer to walk or take public transportation instead of drive to get to these places, then living in a 55+ community is ideal for you as this will allow you to go to these places without the need for assistance.


4. You Know You’re Always Safe


55+ communities are strict when it comes to security. This is why most of them are secluded, where only approved residents and guests are allowed to enter. Parking lots and walkways in these communities are well lighted and evacuation maps are posted in strategic locations to ensure the safety of residents when a disaster or any urgent situation strikes.


5. You Get to Live Independently While Enjoying Support Services When Needed


One of the things that you probably wish after retirement is to be able to live independently in your own home. However, there are times when you will still need additional assistance, especially when you catch an illness or meet an accident.  


One of the benefits of living in a 55+ community is that it allows you to enjoy an independent life while still having support services available anytime you need them. Examples of support services that are available in a 55+ community are emergency call systems, pet care, housekeeping, physical rehabilitation services and many more.
