What Does the Next Generation of Retirement Living Look Like?

Health conscious. Educated. Foodies. Independent. High expectations. Technologically savvy. Accustomed to options and variety. Socially minded.

These are just some of the characteristics describing today’s Baby Boomers. In seeking a retirement community, they’re looking for more than just a place to live. Freedom from routine home ownership tasks, a vibrant and engaging lifestyle, choices and control are top priorities. These individuals desire exceptional amenities, first class service, contemporary spaces, gourmet dining, and an environment which fosters wellness, creativity and lifelong learning.

Between 2020 and 2030, senior households in Monroe County are projected to increase by 30%. Research has shown that older adults living in an environment which offers maintenance-free living, social engagement opportunities, comprehensive nutrition, increased safety and security and access to wellness programming live 7 healthy years longer than those who do not!

So what options do retirees have? There are several:

  • Do nothing. React to whatever happens with no plan in place.
  • Move in with family members.
  • Move to a condo or apartment.
  • Hire home health care, if needed.
  • Plan for the future with an enriching, secure, independent lifestyle in a community designed to meet your needs and expectations.
