6 Reasons To Live In Retirement Communities

The key to a happier, healthier and longer life depends on keeping active, remaining social and having time up your sleeve to enjoy life to the full. Retirement communities offer the best of both worlds where you can live in retirement homes surrounded by a caring community whilst enjoying independent living.



1. “Your Health Is Your Wealth”


Keeping healthy is key to living your retirement dream. Just a few benefits of keeping fit and active in your 60’s and beyond include;


Better self-esteem

Lower blood pressure

Increased bone density

Improved cholesterol

Enjoying independent living for longer


Retirement communities that have on-site facilities such as a swimming pool means keeping fit and active is within easy reach at your own convenience. Did you know that research applied by the Journal of Applied Physiology found that active seniors who maintained a regular exercise regime over a number of years have similar cardiovascular health and muscle mass to people decades younger than them?


2. Retirement Homes | Say Hello To Low Maintenance Independent Living


Who needs the constant hassle of doing the lawns and other maintenance jobs in and around the home? Enjoy those beautifully landscaped gardens at your leisure without the hard work or if gardening is your thing the best retirement communities welcome you into their gardening team and sometimes with your very own plot to boot.


3. Retirement Communities | A Place To Make New Friends


Planned excursions, on-site events and facilities are just some of the great places to mix and mingle with other like-minded villagers.


Ask people who live in any shared community and what they love is the feeling of belonging and membership; a place where they’re amongst kindred spirits who they can share stories with, exchange lifes’ ups and downs whilst having a good laugh over a cup of tea or coffee (or perhaps something a bit stronger!)


4. Independent Living + Safe and Secure = Best Retirement Communities


Having a 24/7 emergency call system gives residents complete peace of mind and security in their retirement homes. These in-built safety features have been designed to ensure that assistance is on hand as and when required which saves needless worry for everyone.


5. Quality of Life | Beat The Boredom Blues


Boredom and loneliness can lead to poor health and that’s why staying connected and having regular contact with friends, family and neighbours is so important. Retirement communities allow for just the right balance between having a private life and having a thriving social life.


6. A Beautiful Place To Call Home


Never stop pursuing the joy of doing something you love and that includes living in a place you love. Arriving at your chosen retirement community you want to feel that sense of being home; a place to laugh and live life to the full. After all you deserve it.


Retirement communities are the secret to a long and happy life where you can keep fit and active, mix and mingle with other like-minded residents whilst enjoying independent living. Remember your health and happiness really is your wealth!
