If you are thinking about downsizing your home, consider a move to an “Over 50’s Residential Community.” Many people are now enjoying the lifestyle that such a community offers and there are numerous benefits.
Being part of a community gives you the opportunity to make new friends and enjoy the companionship of others who are in the same season of life, while at the same time allowing you the privacy of your own home. Many communities create spaces for interaction and provide a range of activity options and special interest groups to encourage a positive social atmosphere for all homeowners to live harmoniously together.
Maintaining a large home and garden can become a demanding chore as you age. Many residential communities offer a range of modern quality homes that have been designed to be low maintenance, while common areas and facilities are maintained by management so you can spend more time doing the things you enjoy most.
Lifestyle communities offer a very safe and secure environment. Belonging to a gated community can give the convenience and security of a “lock up and leave” home providing you peace of mind when you decide to travel. There is often an informal care network providing physical and emotional security too.
Shared facilities can be provided to a community more economically than they can to individuals. Many residential communities are now offering high quality resort-style living with facilities such as bbq areas, golf courses, bowling greens, club houses, restaurants, cinemas as well as a number of luxury swimming pools. Selling the family home can release capital and enable you to move into a place that can provide affordable luxury.
Many residential communities are situated in locations that are close to shopping centres and medical centres. You may also find they provide a range of general services for your benefit, and may also offer additional services as your needs change such as housekeeping, meals and laundry.
