Active adult communities are senior living communities (usually 55+ or 62+) with independent living spaces and common amenities that provide a fulfilling, well-rounded, active social life well into retirement and your golden years. They’re becoming an increasingly popular option for seniors looking to downsize and enjoy the conveniences of retirement-community living without sacrificing their independence or active lifestyle.
There is much to consider when choosing the right active adult community for you, including:
- Which town do I want to live in?
- What is my preferred living space (i.e. house, apartment, condo, etc.)?
- Do I plan to live here long-term and age in place?
- What is the visitor policy?
- What amenities do they offer?
- Do the social activities and outings align with my interests?
- What dining options are there?
The very best way to choose a senior housing community is to visit yourself and experience it firsthand. But to help you get started on your search, we’ve compiled a list of 7 of the best active adult communities near Dayton, Ohio.
