As America's senior population swells to an unprecedented volume -- 62 million seniors in all, almost double the senior population at the turn of the century -- retirement communities are revamping their standards to become increasingly attractive to this new generation of dynamic, diverse seniors. At 55places.com, we associate with retirement communities which offer enriched lifestyle choices to keep seniors active, social, and thriving in their communities.
But for many boomers, the very thought of retiring and moving into retirement communities feels unnatural. After decades of hard work, child rearing and independence, moving into an "old folks' home" may seem depressing and dull. A life of full leisure just isn’t typically built into the hardworking Boomers’ mentality.
Thankfully, retirement communities of the modern age are contemporary, sophisticated facilities designed to accommodate active lifestyles and continuing education -- more like resorts than the gloomy, industrialized facilities of decades past. From lectures given by university professors to lavish spas and sports venues, modern retirement communities offer seniors opportunities to flourish in the best places to retire on earth.
