Are you a senior who’s not ready to take it quietly and lie down? Do you still enjoy being active with friends and socialising? Are you capable of living alone and of taking care of your own place? Then perhaps a senior community of 55 plus is a good place for you to consider living. You’re probably not interested in living in an assisted living facility if you’re still active and healthy and able to be on your own. There are several other types of communities available that allow you to maintain your autonomy and live on your own, but still benefit from living among other seniors. Do you want to learn more?

Senior condominium communities provide close neighbours, space for guests, and a minimum of outside work. Parking may be limited on the downside, and for someone who likes to dabble in the garden as a hobby, there may not be much area available. However you may find a small patio area where you can garden some containers or nurture a bird-watching habit. A condo community can also be conducive to an active social life, since many neighbours live nearby.
A mobile home park for seniors is another good option for quality senior living. This allows the option of maintaining a single family dwelling lifestyle without common walls and the disruption of upstairs or downstairs neighbours for senior citizens. This type of community allows you to make friends with other nearby seniors, and a clubhouse or lounge is often provided for neighbourhood meetings or card games. Senior mobile home park residents would also enjoy taking care of a smaller yard with just enough room for a fruit tree or a few rosebushes to be planted.
An advantage of living in one of these senior communities is that many are gated or otherwise made more private, so that residents feel more secure. Some of these communities may provide residents with activities like golf, tennis, or dances to participate in and get to know each other. In these neighbourhoods, it is also common to find that they have agreements or rules about the amount of time kids or other non-senior guests can visit or what activities are permitted while they are there to maintain a quiet and respectful environment for peaceful senior living. There may also be pet pacts, so make sure you check that out wherever you choose to enjoy your senior years. Whichever of these communities you choose, your lifestyle should be improved and the opportunities you seek should be provided.
