New Florida Retirement Communities
When making the important decision to move into a senior living community, seniors report independence as their top criteria - along with a wide selection of social and recreational amenities and luxury homes.
Because so many options are available, narrow down the choices to those closely fitting your own needs, whether it's a seasonal or year-round home or one of the Florida retirement communities with gated homes and villa communities, RV/motor coach pads, mobile home communities, single-family communities, or motorcoach home.
Some communities, like CRF Communities, offer almost all residence options, which is especially convenient for those who may want to change home styles in the future without moving away and leaving friends behind.
Consider too, what you like to do in your free time. Which activities do you want to continue, and which might you want to pursue further: golf, tennis, swimming, fitness? If you are quite active, visit the community's clubhouse to check out its size and amenities. You may even want to sample the food. Is the location convenient to shopping, entertainment, businesses, and main highways?
Recognize that this decision can and should take some time. Most people actually visit a community at least three times before making a final decision.
While visiting, talk to the residents. Do they feel a renewed sense of well-being derived from their move to one of the Florida retirement communities? Do they enjoy a rich social, recreational and cultural lifestyle? Do they wish they had moved to the community sooner?
With time to spend each day as you wish, and know there are enriching opportunities in the community right beyond your front door, each day will offer new possibilities to enjoy friendships, social events and a host of classes and outings.
The community's financial stability is also a major consideration - look for reputable development/management companies with a proven track record.
