What is an Active Adult Community?

Many people decide to downsize their homes as they get older. Once the kids are out of the house and you’ve spent decades dealing with yard work, it’s understandable that you might want a property that’s easier to maintain. But once you retire from your job, you might find it difficult to meet people and maintain a social life. An active adult community gives you a chance to connect with peers who are at the same stage of life as you are, while taking your priorities into account.

Age-Restricted Living

In a 55+ community, the amenities are designed to cater to the interests of people who have retired or are nearing retirement age. The goal of many active adult communities is to provide resources that enhance your lifestyle.

For example, social activities are often arranged so that you can get to know your neighbors. Recreational spaces are available to let you spend time working on your hobbies or discovering new interests.

Active adult communities are aimed at adults who are at least 55 years old, and occupants must have at least one person aged 55 or older.

Wellness For The Body And Mind

An active adult community often has amenities that are geared toward your physical health. At Kissing Tree, we offer a social building, 18-hole putting green, 18-hole golf course and hike and bike trails. We also have pickleball and bocce ball courts, which give you a place to stay active while you’re creating healthy competition with friends.

Cultural Events

The best active adult living communities, like Kissing Tree, will offer opportunities to enjoy food, drinks and local culture. Perhaps there’s a restaurant or two on the property. Maybe experts from the town come in to teach classes that you wouldn’t otherwise have access to.

An active adult community typically provides a wide range of activities in one place. You don’t have to search for something to do because there is almost always something available. A centralized events calendar makes it easy for you to find your fun.

Downsizing isn’t about going smaller. It should involve expanding your chances to enjoy life as you get older. In an active adult living community, you can maintain your independence while growing your social circle and opportunities for personal development.
