ACTIVE LIVING AT ITS BEST (PART I)

ACTIVE LIVING AT ITS BEST (PART I)

How would I transition into a 55 and older community?

55+ Communities are much different from the past, so confusion is often the first response for yourself or a loved one when asked about moving from their home into one of these communities. When you break it down though, the benefits truly outweigh the reservations.

Active Living at its Best

Health & fitness can define a healthier and cleared path to a new chapter in your life. Independent Living will first ease the stress of maintenance on your current home. Workout Facilities, recreational activities such as swimming, golf, tennis & more are designed to keep you active and thriving to be as healthy as you can. Many 55+ Communities have a plethora of amenities, with a calendar of activities and ammonites that are designed to keep you active, at your own pace and emphasize your lifestyle:

• Cooking classes
• Shuffleboard
• Bus and field trips
• A walkable and handicapped accessible campus
• Community picnics and barbecues

To maintain positive Physical and Mental fitness, many 55+ Communities have a wide range of activities to maintain your health no matter your background or interest. These include:

• Writing classes
• Bible studies
• Card games
• Game clubs
• Bingo
• Special interest programs
• Charity work and service projects
• On-site library
• Coffee groups
• Family gatherings
• Movie nights

If the reasons above aren’t convincing you of the benefits, we should look directly to being active and the benefits in your daily life and sustained health. These include:

• Reducing the risk for cardiovascular problems, rheumatoid arthritis, some cancers and osteoporosis
• Increasing longevity
• Reducing the risk of stroke
• Boosting one’s immune system
• Encouraging good eating and exercising habits
• Lessening the risk for Alzheimer’s disease
• Lowering blood pressure
• Lessening the possibility of mental health issues such as loneliness and depression

If any of these positives have turned the lights on to considering a transition to a 55+Community,
