Active Adult Communities

Living in an Active Adult Community has become one of the most popular housing choices for retirees.

These communities often offer a small town atmosphere combined with the convenience of living near a large city. They provide social contacts galore through many of their activities -- book clubs, card groups, stock clubs -- just to name a few.

While most people wait until they're 55 to move into an Active Adult Community, one experimental guy, Steve Gurney, decided to give it a shot at 43!

For an interesting account of his adventures, check out his Blog at http://www.retirement-living.com/publisher/

You can also order a free copy of his Guide To Retirement Living Source Book which is a is a publication that helps you locate housing options, aging in place and expert resources . Each issue is packed with articles and real-life stories. Currently, it's published in DC Metro, Maryland, and Delaware Valley.

thanks for posting this Rosie . . . one correction though I was living in a community that falls under the category of "independent and assisted living". While many of my neighbors did have mobility issues and "disabilities", my time reinforced that we all laugh and cry at pretty much the same thing, hence the title of my blog: everyone is aging! Thanks!

Staying active is really important. The women in my family have always been a part of The Red Hat Society, they're always doing something fun and new.
