Age-Targeted Community Living Works for the Active Adult Lifestyle

Age-targeted community living appeals to those wanting an active adult lifestyle without the restrictions of an age-restricted community.

Active Adult Communities are developed for a diverse range of ages, amenities, and lifestyles. These communities may be distinguished as:

Age-Targeted Communities defined as open to those of any age with amenities appealing to an active lifestyle. Popular amenities may include indoor or outdoor pools, tennis courts, pickleball courts, a community center, walking trails, or even a golf course.

Age-Restricted Communities defined as a community geared towards those aged 55+ and catering to active adult living. Popular amenities may be very similar to those mentioned above in the age-targeted communities but is restricted to residents 55+.

Both Age-Restricted and Age-Targeted Communities may also include some or all of services such as lawn mowing services, landscaping, snow removal, common area maintenance, and a central area for socialization such as a clubhouse or community center.

Both types of communities cater to active adults and Baby Boomers who are looking for a vacation home or a retirement home. The neighborhoods center around whats important to each group of residents.
