There are also two separate kinds of communities that you may want to consider: Gated and Active Adult communities. Below is a quick description of each type, however please visit our guide to active adult communities for more comprehensive information.
There are a number of retirement homes known as gated communities and these offer the same services, features and options as 55 plus retirement communities.
Active Adult Communities
Active adult communities like those listed here on ComfortLife.ca essentially cater to the same group.
The services and amenities at an active adult or gated community might include restaurant style fine dining, fitness centers, onsite golf courses, indoor sports complexes an indoor or outdoor swimming pool, a fireside lounge or luxury furnished suites. Your choice of accommodations could be anything from single detached homes to boutique style retirement residences in an apartment building.
Our listings below are homes just right for singles and couples 55 and older, in an active adult setting.
Still not convinced that an active adult community is right for you?
The advantage of this kind of community is that you live in an entire complex that is designed with people like you in mind. The total effect is that you have a place that is maximally livable. Move away from the dense crowding and noise of other communities to the luxury and comfort of a 55 plus community, and you'll never look back.
