Your retirement options in Sarnia and area
Sarnia has a wide variety of seniors' condos and apartments to choose from.
In town and in the outlying areas, there are a number of excellent active lifestyle communities, where you get the very best of many worlds. People settle here where many of the mundane tasks of life (lawn cutting, driveway shoveling and other pesky household tasks) are taken care of by someone else. These "55 plus" communities provide an ideal lifestyle for people who have emptied the nest and are looking for a community of older people like themselves, without some of the interruptions and other problems you find when living in the suburbs. Options include bungalow communities and also seniors' condominiums.
Active adult living is really the biggest tend in retirement living, especially in beautiful areas like the Lake Huron area, with its beaches and other attractions. A strong point of appeal in these communities is the security feature offered. Some are even gated communities, but regardless of that issue (of whether or not they are gated), they will have dedicated security, so extended stays away from home are more relaxing for you. You'll never have to worry about home safety and maintenance. We have a much broader guide to active adult lifestyle.
