3 ways Downsizing Communities make having fun easy for over 50s

Date Posted: September 16, 2022

You’ve worked hard all your life, and your pre-retirement and retirement years are meant to be spent doing all your favourite things!

Here’s how you’ll experience more fun and freedom in your fifties, when you call a Downsizing Community home:

  1. Go on your dream holiday (and enjoy holiday vibes at home!)

Making the move to a Downsizing Community helps you to free up time and money to dedicate towards planning and ticking off all the holidays on your bucket list, which helps to create a lifestyle of fun and adventure.

Not only will you have more cash and more time to dedicate towards your travels, you’ll also have the peace of mind that comes with living in a gated community with on-site community managers and neighbours who can look after your home while you’re away. This means you can enjoy longer holidays more often.

Plus, your holiday vibes won’t end when you arrive back home. With resort-style amenities at your fingertips, your lifestyle will feel like a holiday that never ends.

  • Amenities, activities and excursions aplenty

From luxurious on-site amenities, to community-wide activities and exciting excursions, there’s so much fun to be had when you call a Downsizing Community home.

Group activities and community excursions play a big part in Downsizing Communities because homeowners generally enjoy an active and vibrant lifestyle. This means moving to a Downsizing Community presents you with a range of opportunities to meet new people, make new friends and enjoy group activities.

Plus, you’ll enjoy all the benefits that come with having the following facilities to call your own:

  • Indoor pool and spa
  • Gymnasium
  • Wellness centre
  • Sauna
  • Tennis court
  • Bocce or croquet lawn
  • Likeminded neighbours to call friends

When you call a Downsizing Community home, you’ll become part of a supportive and well-connected community. Because these communities attract like-minded people who respect their neighbourhood and the people in it, the sense of community and connection is palpable.

So, whether you want to share travel stories, try a new sport or hobby, walk and talk with a friend, or enjoy a vino on the verandah with your neighbour, moving to a Downsizing Community means there’ll always be someone there to share in the fun with you. The best part about all this, is you don’t need to wait until you retire to unlock all these fun possibilities. Homeowners living in Downsizing Communities can remain working full-time, part-time or casually.
