There’s no denying that getting older can be a bit of a shock to the system. We suddenly find ourselves with more aches and pains, and we may start to feel like we’re no longer as young and spry as we used to be. However, getting older doesn’t have to be a negative experience. In fact, the age of 55 and over can be one of the most rewarding times in life, if we know how to embrace it, and if we prepare for it in advance.
Over 55 communities in Colorado offer plenty of opportunities to stay active, which is important to overall health. Many of these communities provide amenities, such as fitness centers, pickleball courts, nearby golf courses, swimming pools, common green spaces, and the opportunity to take classes and gain new knowledge and skills.
Homeowners in 55 plus communities can participate in book clubs, board games, cooking, walks, hikes, and going to the theater or movies. You can also try hobbies such as photography or painting.
Involvement in such activities helps us to stay social, and in shape, as well as helping to alleviate potential feelings of loneliness. So whether you’re looking to try something new or just stay connected with your community, getting involved in a 55 plus community is a great place to start.
