According to recent Merck research, approximately 28% of United States’ active older adults in the 65+ bracket are single.
Having an active social lifestyle in retirement is a natural thing for a single active older adult, no matter how old they are. Senior living communities are growing in popularity because of this factor. From exercising in the morning to meeting new neighbors who share your interests, independent living communities offer myriad benefits for single retirees.
Keep reading to learn all about why senior living communities are great for single active older adults.
If you have to stay on top of all the duties of home maintenance as a single active older adult, it can be hard to find time to date or pursue your interests.
But you won’t need to worry about cleaning your home, maintaining your lawn or repairing your apartment home if you move to an independent living community.
Chefs also prepare fresh meals for retirees in most senior living communities, so you don’t have to worry about that either. If you don’t have to worry about cooking and cleaning, you’ll have more time to spend with your neighbors, explore the community or pursue your hobbies.
Connecting Meaningfully with New People
The key to a fulfilling retirement is to maintain a variety of social connections. There is no reason to fear making a big life change when you live in a senior living community. They’re often bustling with friendly residents who would like to help you settle in and feel at home.
For older singles, independent living communities can be compared to college campuses. Building a strong social foundation can open up many opportunities for meeting new people. If you live in an independent living community, you won’t have to plan trips to meet your friends because many of them will be closer than ever!
