The Top Priority of Seniors is Staying Healthy

How have your priorities changed through the years? At younger stages in life you may have wanted to be as popular, influential, wealthy, successful, accomplished, well-travelled, educated, or as fill-in-the-blank as possible. What is your priority now? Studies have shown that the number one priority for Seniors and retirees is staying as healthy as possible.

The Dimensions of Wellness

We search the world* to find these unique places; communities focused on the Dimensions of Healthy Living, where Senior residents can stay as healthy as possible (Educationally, Physically, Nutritionally, Culturally, Spiritually, Vocationally, Socially, & Emotionally). They are the communities “Where Boredom is Almost Impossible®.”

[* If you live or work at a community that seems to “fit the bill,” thank you for helping our search by letting us know about it by nominating it here. There is no charge for a community to have a standard listing on this website.]

Staying Home can become an Unhealthy Decision

While it is normal to procrastinate and postpone moving as long as possible, it is not a healthy decision. The longer you wait to move, the
longer you miss out on an active healthy lifestyle, and the unhealthier your home can become.

Consider the unhealthy effects of staying at home, especially as driving becomes more difficult:
  • ISOLATION & LONELINESS  (Socially Unhealthy)
  • BOREDOM (Emotionally Unhealthy)
  • SEDENTARY LIFESTYLE (Physically Unhealthy)
  • MEDICAL EMERGENCIES (Medically Unhealthy)
  • LIMITED FOOD CHOICES (Nutritionally Unhealthy)
  • UNEXPECTED HOME REPAIRS (Financially Unhealthy)
  • LACK OF WORSHIP & FELLOWSHIP (Spiritually Unhealthy)
  • FEWER VOLUNTEERING OUTLETS (Vocationally Unhealthy)
  • REDUCED EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES (Intellectually Unhealthy)

From Confusion to Clarity

If you are confused and overwhelmed by all the different Senior Community options, you aren’t the only one! It can be confusing – community categories, labels and definitions seem to change from state to state and website to website.

However they may be “officially” classified – Active Adult Communities (AACs), Life Plan Communities (LPCs), or Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRCs) – as long as it can demonstrate 4 Healthy Retirement Lifestyle Characteristics, it can be certified and recognized as a Retirement Resort

There are many boring retirement communities out there, and we recommend that you steer clear of them. However, if your priority is to find a community Where Boredom is Almost Impossible®, and where you can enjoy Retirement Living at its Healthiest®, we commend these Retirement Resorts to you. With so many healthy advantages of moving sooner than later, we hope you will soon enjoy the adventure of exploring and moving into the one that suits you best.

What About Healthcare Services?

Healthcare services in retirement communities are like airbag systems in vehicles. Just as it is better for your health to drive in a car with an airbag system than without, it is healthier to live in a community with healthcare services than without – just in case!

All Retirement Resorts consist primarily of Independent Living (IL) residences, but they also provide at least one of these healthcare service-levels:
