According to a new article in Senior Housing News, “a majority of baby boomers ‘prefer to improve their dynamic lifestyle’ in retirement by moving to an active adult community.”
This is great news for many of Gilbert & Sheppard Group’s clients such as Jim Chapman Communities, Park Springs, The Landings at Night Harbor and Olde Town Grayson.
The Senior Housing News article titled Analyst Report: Active Adult Communities A Favorite Choice of Baby Boomers, claims that younger seniors are choosing communities for their lifestyle options. Active adult communities offer people 55 and over a way of life that encompasses all of the entertainment and space needed for retirement. Most of the communities offer plenty of social options as well as ample room for guests and for new hobbies.
According to the article, independent and assisted living communities, as well as CCRCs, are “expected to witness stabilized growth in the coming years.” This is great news for anyone in the active adult market.
