The benefits of condominium developments specifically for seniors include safety, facilitating independent living, and community activities that promote socialization as well as mental and physical health, according to SeniorHomes.com. Those condominiums are often near places such as restaurants and stores, so seniors can walk or take public transportation.
Condominium communities for seniors tend to be in picturesque places, giving them a feel of relaxation and being on vacation, says SeniorHomes.com. The grounds usually are landscaped and maintained well, with snow removal services that make life safer. Amenities frequently include community centers, pools, gyms and sometimes even movie theaters.
Some higher-end condominium communities provide more comprehensive repair, maintenance and security benefits than others do, says Forbes. In such communities, home-watch and caretaker services are common. Someone visits the condo while the resident is on a trip to check on the lights, electricity and other systems.
Many condominium developments specifically for seniors have bike trails, bowling and social walking clubs, or easy access to them, explains Simply Seniors. Communities also tend to be close-knit. Another benefit is the wide variety of communities, such as those that focus on golf or those centered around beach living, so seniors can find something that suits their preferences.
