    Why Retirees Choose Apartment Living

Apartment living is on the rise for retirees. Why? Because baby boomers want a different type of lifestyle in retirement. In brief, they want less burden from their home and yard. And more time for leisure.

This trend is also seen in senior communities. Especially in continuing care retirement communities (CCRCs).

So, what benefits are drawing seniors?

3 Benefits of Apartment Living in a Senior Community

1. Convenience

For them, convenience is key. Modern apartments in these communities offer this. Not only are they stylish, but they’re also designed for aging well.

Benefits include:

  • High-end finishes
  • Energy-efficient appliances
  • Spaces for entertaining
  • Maintenance services
  • Housekeeping
  • Single floor living
  • Step in showers with discreet grab bars
  • Secure underground parking
  • Transportation services and shuttles
  • Salons, fitness centers, and more

2. Personal Outdoor Space

Retirees don’t want to give up green space. But, they also don’t want the hassle of caring for it. For that reason, apartments offer private outdoor spaces. Most in the form of a patio or balcony. This way, residents can still enjoy the outdoors. But they leave the lawn and garden care behind.

Retirees also want spaces to exercise and socialize. Apartments at Twin Lakes include access to:

  • Courtyard
