“To enhance the quality of the day……that is the highest of the arts”, Henry David Thoreau

In todays world, retirees have a variety of options available to fit their lifestyles.  If you look around you will see this generation writing good essays is retiring differently than any generation previously.

Todays retirees are choosing retirement communities.  Why? Because they are smart shoppers who carefully investigate and consider all of their options.  They know making a choice to live in a retirement community means planning ahead and moving into a retirement community long before a crisis occurs.  This allows retirees to make very personal decisions on their own terms.

The retirement community lifestyle provides retirees the freedom to enjoy the leisure activities they love the most.  It allows retirees more time to enjoy doing what they like, adding to the quality of their lives.  Communities can alleviate everyday worries like the stress of home maintenance and upkeep on a property by taking on those responsibilities.

Selecting which location to retire revolves around a myriad of choices.  Deciding to be closer to children, family members, and life-long friends, or even choosing to return to one’s hometown are often considered.

Retirement community living provides one with an opportunity to fellowship with other residents who are at the same stage in life within a campus environment through a variety of interactive activities.  Retirees have the chance to create new friendships and establish life long bonds.  Participating in the varied activities of the retirement community also helps to promote important socialization..
