Top 9 Benefits of an Active Community

There are lots of benefits of living in an active community such as Solivita Living, but we’ve narrowed it down to the top 9.

Low Maintenance

Even when you are retired, things like lawn maintenance, laundry, bills, and grocery shopping never cease. These household chores can get in the way of your plans. In a retirement community, many of these can be taken care of for you.

Expense Consolidation

Think about how much your current lifestyle costs- between property taxes, home insurance, and home maintenance/repairs, it can be expensive. This doesn’t include rent/mortgage, utilities, food, and other expenses. A retirement community can combine many expenses including rent, utilities, food, and entertainment.

Upscale Living

Do you have your own swimming pool, putting green, or pool table? Retirement communities often have all of these and more to allow you to live the life of your dreams. You can enjoy a variety of amenities including:

  • Swimming pools
  • Game rooms
  • Computer rooms
  • Spas/hot tubs
  • Basketball courts
  • Tennis courts
  • Fitness centers
  • Indoor and outdoor walking trails

Social Activities

Making new friends can be challenging at any age but gets trickier when you’re retired because you may not get out as much. A retirement community can help you enjoy an engaging social life and give you exciting reasons to get out of the house with a variety of events including:

  • Fitness classes
  • Happy hours
  • Morning brunches
  • Book clubs
  • Community groups
  • Volunteer opportunities
  • Community outings

Keeping in Shape

Engaging in regular physical activity can help you maintain your independence and stay active longer. If you struggle with motivation, retirement communities offer a variety of activities that you may enjoy including:

  • Yoga
  • Swimming/water aerobics
  • Walking groups
  • Golf outings
  • Hikes
  • Fitness classes

Eating Well

Cooking a nutritious meal on your own can feel like a chore. However, retirement communities offer daily meals, cooking classes, and more to help you get the nutrition that you need in a fun way!

Opportunities to Learn, Grow, and Travel

Retirement doesn’t mean that you give up the need to learn, grow, and explore the world around you. A retirement community can make it easier for you to engage in these activities through planned excursions/travel, including:

  • Local shopping trips
  • Exploring local attractions
  • Excursions to local art museums and theaters
  • National/international trips
  • Gardening groups/classes
  • College courses


While you may never need assistance with your activities of daily living, it is still comforting when you know you have people looking out for you in case of an emergency. Retirement communities offer safety and security features for your well-being and to offer assistance in case something does happen.


Sometimes you just want to ride along rather than drive. Retirement communities offer transportation for their residents when desired. This doesn’t mean that you have to give up your keys, just that you don’t have to drive if you don’t want to or if it’s more convenient to catch a ride.
