Every stage of our lives comes with new opportunities. New couples are likely to buy townhomes or small starter homes, families might need something larger, with a yard, and seniors will thrive best in a home designed around their needs.
When you’ve spent the majority of your time, living in your warm comfortable home, raising kids there, and building relationships with great neighbors, it can be a hard thing to move away.
What might make this decision even harder, is if you’re moving into a new home and neighborhood that is completely different from what you’ve become accustomed to.
If however, you are over 55 years old, looking to retire, or are already retired, there are some really good reasons to consider a move into a 55+ Community like the ones we build.
I’ll admit, these communities aren’t for everyone, but before you make your decision, read on a little, and see why an age restricted community is different, and why it might make all the difference for you.
Communities Tailor Made For Active Adults and Seniors
When we talk about homes that are designed for seniors, we’re talking about more than just a house. Your needs are greater than the roof you sleep under. You need a community of folks like you. Living in a 55+ community, means that everyone is around your same age. Most of them are retired, too.
This means that you automatically have a social environment, where folks know and look out for each other.
Also, since we keep our homes ADA adaptable, we usually have no stairs, unless of course you add an optional loft to your home package. Let’s face it, as we age, those joints don’t handle stairs as well as they used to.
So stay safe and move to the more secure Community by Leisure Villas, and get rid of all the stairs that are in 99% of the other homes on the market.
Do you really enjoy doing yard work? What about snow shoveling? What about mowing?
Some of you truly do like digging your hands into the soil, and our communities provide you plenty of opportunity to plant gardens and flowers, but all the other chores that go with owning a house can be difficult, or unpleasant.
You’ve worked hard your whole life, wouldn’t it be nice to let someone else do the laborious chores, while you relaxed a little more, and only do the parts you enjoy? All of our homes are in communities that have HOA’s, run by great folks like you, who actually care about your community. You couldn’t ask for a better HOA.
So go ahead, relax a little. Enjoy an extra vacation or two. Donate that snow shovel to your kids and make the easy move into a relaxed Leisure Villas Community where the exterior maintenance is nearly a thing of the past.
One of the hardest things to do is watch your parents grow old. I’m sure most of you can remember such times. It’s sad, and scary at times. In my family, good old grandpa is in his 90’s and stubbornly refuses to move out of his split-level home.
To go anywhere, he must climb or descend at least two flights of stairs. This is after having broken his back once already and struggling with mobility issues. We all love him a lot, but we worry about him as well.
It’s easy to look from the outside in and say, “Perhaps your house isn’t meeting your needs.”
It’s another thing entirely to look at our situation from the inside out, and say, “My house isn’t meeting my needs now,” or “It might not meet the needs of me or my spouse in the not too distant future.”
For your peace of mind, and that of your children’s, do yourself a favor and move into comfort in one of our luxurious Leisure Villas Communities.
The retired life is meant to be fun, isn’t it? None of us hope to die as soon as we give up the full-time job. For most of us, we’re still active and living life to the fullest. We know that coming years might not be so kind to our bodies, but we are still very much involved in everything.
The thing is, though, that once we’re retired, we find out that most everyone else we know is still busy. Our kids and grandkids come to visit, and we love their company, but what do we do when they’re not around.
Some of us are also unfortunate enough to have lost, or know that we soon will lose our significant other. Retired life can be great, but it also comes with these challenges. When you live in a community with people who are at your same stage of life, you get to make more friends that can help with the sad times that eventually hit us all.
Not only do you get more neighbors who you can relate to, but our communities also encourage getting together to meet neighbors you might otherwise not know. From potlucks, to movie nights, to lunch dates, to service projects, our clubhouses provide great places to meet and built lasting friendships.
If you want to ensure a fun retirement with plenty of friends, or if you want a supportive network of friends for any lonely times to come, move to one of our friendly Leisure Villas Communities.
Avoid assisted living longer
One thing that we are all aware of, is that we aren’t getting any younger. We hope that we won’t lose our memories. Some of us hope we won’t really die, so we choose not to think about it. Others of us, try to soak up life the best that we can today and hope that tomorrow will be good as well. There’s probably even those who look forward to the end, in hopes of a better life after this.
We all hope for things to turn out the best that they can. The longer we can put off death, and assisted living (which is arguably worse), the better we’ll be.
So can living in a 55+ community help you liver longer and have a better mind throughout your later years?
Well, let me ask you:
Would more social contact in your life, keep your mental health better?
Could a safer house prevent accidents to your physical health, and help your overall longevity?
Would you be able to avoid unhealthy physical and mental stress by not having to maintain a yard?
Many people believe that living happier, leads to living healthier, and living longer. If you believe this too, then don’t you owe it to yourself to move to a Leisure Villas Community?
Are you ready?
There are plenty of reasons why a community should be tailored to your stage of life. Given a minute, I’m sure you could think of some more than have been mentioned here.
It’s not always easy leaving the home you’ve become used to, especially when it has so many memories tied to it, but if you want to enjoy the next few decades to the fullest, then finding a home that meets your current situation will drastically improve your lifestyle.
So visit any of our communities, and see if you’re ready to make the move to one of our amazing 55+ Communities. Nobody builds them better than Leisure Villas. We’ve been at this for a long time, and we’re constantly striving to provide you with the best possible solution to your retirement dreams.
