Active Adults Can Embrace High-End, Hassle-Free Living


Some adults over 62 are seeking an opportunity to live differently – downsizing in favor of luxury, maintenance-free living in upscale apartment communities. It’s not difficult to see why. These active adult communities, an emerging trend that has seen greater demand in recent years, offer older adults the ability to enjoy resort inspired amenities and high-end apartment living, all while remaining independent and creating new friendships and memories as they live in a vibrant community.

These new communities differ from traditional apartments because they offer optional levels of care, and the active adult designation means that the residents are largely, if not completely, 62 and older. The communities also offer more competitive pricing than assisted living facilities, and greater freedom.

With the possibility of carefully maintained grounds, apartments with private balconies or patios and shared community areas, such as the kitchen, dining room, game room and fitness center, these communities are designed to cater to this new, active generation of senior.

Another aspect that sets these communities apart are their shared community spaces and features. Amenities may include on-site maintenance, secure access to the buildings, scheduled transportation via the community bus, high-speed internet, in-house hair salon, and optional services, such as housekeeping and evening meals.

Active adult communities are not health care providers, so make sure you choose a community with a trusted network of health care professionals that residents can utilize as needed. A primary aspect of these active adult communities that differentiates them from alternative living arrangements is the primary focus they place on developing a vibrant, socially connected community.

This newer housing option for adults over 62 continues to grow in popularity, with the Gardens of Annapolis serving as one local option. For more information on the Gardens of Annapolis and its holiday leasing specials, please call 410-208-5042 or email
