Within the last few years, the first wave of Baby Boomers have made it clear that a satisfying retirement is not just a paid-for home and a pension. No, Sir. Baby Boomers want all kinds of things; keeping fit is a big priority. Working out, playing golf, swimming and playing tennis are musts for many. Maintaining an active social life is also high on the priority list. And today, it’s even politically correct to say you don’t want live around kids. Been there. Done that. Most importantly, being able to do all these things will require homes and communities with features “maturing” adults need to maintain independence as long as possible.
Builders are getting that message loud and clear and are now offering many types of active adult communities. They include age restricted, non-age-restricted, age-targeted, “destination” communities and homes with every imaginable custom feature for the senior adult.
