Some people may think that moving to a 55+ community means that they will be giving away their independence—but this couldn’t be further from the truth. These communities can be exactly what you’re looking for as you begin a new chapter in your life. Perhaps you’re hoping to downsize your home or you’re searching for a place that will further your active lifestyle. Whatever it is you need, our team at Gemcraft Homes has you covered. Read on to see some of the incredible benefits that come with living in a 55+ community.

Neighbors in the same stage of life

One of the main perks of living in this type of community is having neighbors in the same stage of life as you. Sometimes moving to a new neighborhood is a little intimidating whether you’re moving to a new city or moving across town. Being surrounded by like-minded individuals with similar interests, passions and lifestyles will only enhance your feeling of belonging and give you plenty to chat about with your neighbors—creating lifelong friendships along the way. 

Enjoy an active and healthy lifestyle

Your active lifestyle won’t just continue when you live in a 55+ community—it will thrive. Our Riverbend community has incredible amenities to cultivate healthy habits. With an indoor pool located within the clubhouse, a fitness center to take advantage of, and countless walking and bike trails located close to the community along the Delaware River—there is truly something for everyone to enjoy. 

The amenities around the community also provide an excellent way to build relationships with your neighbors by creating gathering places for you to enjoy each other’s company. Whether you create a walking group in the mornings, plan a game night at the clubhouse or spend time chatting by the pool—you will be building an incredible sense of community with those around you that will ultimately turn into lifelong friendships.
