Retirement Villages or Lifestyle Communities?

19 Mar, 2015

Not too long ago, there was no such thing as a lifestyle community. There were plenty of retirement villages, but nothing called a lifestyle community. So, what’s the difference? When they were first created, retirement villages were meant to be peaceful communities where people spent their golden years resting and taking it easy.

This was OK because people who were 55 were a lot “older” forty years ago than they are now. Thanks to advances in health and fitness, people are enjoying more years in their lives and more life in their years than ever before. This is where the lifestyle community comes in.

Unlike prototypical retirement villages, lifestyle communities are built to be vibrant and vital. They are places where people of retirement age can find plenty of enjoyable ways to be active and to socialise with like-minded people.
