Condos for the Elderly
Really? Condos for the elderly? They make those? You bet. If you or someone you know is looking to retire, downsize, and have more fun as they get older they should definitely check out moving into a condo.
Condos for the elderly are not the same thing as elderly care homes. That is very important to realize early on. Sure, some of them may provide some home care but it’s nothing near the level that a nursing home provides. Condos for the elderly are not nearly as expensive as nursing home care would be either. Basically, condos for the elderly are just condo projects that have stipulations in their contracts for a certain demographic to live there.
Over the years most people collect way more stuff than they want or need and fill up their homes or apartments. Condos allow older folks to downsize. Plus, most condos in a community made for a certain resident like the elderly are designed with them in mind. You won’t have to navigate ridiculous terrain or climb steep flights of stairs. Getting around is made easier by design. This way, older people can enjoy the same quality of life they had when they were younger.
The greatest attraction for moving into a condo for the elderly is the community. There will be lots of people around the same age as each other. This makes for an easygoing group of residents that almost always get along. Plus, you can’t beat the fact that most, if not all, will be retired. Plenty of time to stay up late playing cards or whatever it is they want to do.
