Looking at Retirement Communities in Ponte Vedra

Sixty years ago, the average human lifespan was 54 years. Back then, the words “senior citizen” and “retirement” invoked images of grandparents sitting on porches watching the world go by or images of people in independent living retirement communities passing the hours with little or no activity around them. Now the average lifespan in the United States has grown to 78 years, thanks to improvements in dietary habits, medical advances, and improved overall lifestyle. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, one of every five people in America will be age 60 or older by 2025.

Enjoying Active Adult Retirement in Ponte Vedra Retirement Communities

If you are an active senior adult in Ponte Vedra trying to decide if active adult retirement communities are right for you, consider the following:

  • Am I 55 years or older?
  • Do I like to have fun?
  • Can I take care of my day-to-day needs?
  • Do I want to enjoy the company of people my age?
  • Would I like to be in an active senior retirement community that provides social, educational and healthy living opportunities?
  • Do I want to continue enjoying activities like dining, golf, swimming, tennis and outings?

If you answered ‘yes’ to most or all of these questions, then an independent living retirement community for active senior adults might be right for you.

Things to Consider Before Choosing from Active Adult Retirement Communities in Ponte Vedra

Independent living, active adult retirement communities in Ponte Vedra are as varied as the people who live there, so take some time to do some research and you’re sure to find one that’s a good fit.

  • Choose the right area for you and your loved ones – decide where you would like to live in Ponte Vedra or greater Jacksonville. Are active adult retirement communities convenient and close to family and friends?
  • Make a list of your wants and needs – Is a golf course necessary? What are your hobbies and can you pursue them here? What other activities are there that you may wish to try in the future? Do you want to be close to a particular medical facility? Make a list putting your highest priorities first.
  • Decide on your budget – Do you want to purchase or rent? How much is the homeowner’s fee and what does it cover? Are there any other fees? Make a list of your total expenses. What is the policy regarding raising fees?  For the greatest peace of mind, make sure you can cover your monthly expenses for the rest of your life.
  • Make appointments to visit – A good plan is to let the retirement community know you want to visit. Have them send an informative packet of information for your records. Sometimes they may have a visitor’s program offering a tour of the property and sometimes an overnight stay at reasonable rates.
  • Be observant during your visit – Notice if residents appear happy, active, and whether some of them greet you. Don’t be shy about asking them if they like living there. Notice if the buildings and landscaping is well kept. Find out what amenities are offered. Make sure that unit floorplans works for you.
  • Check out the transportation options – Is there transportation for residents? Is there a shuttle bus?  You don’t want to be stuck in your new home with no way to get around. How far is the shopping center? Can you walk?
  • Know your shopping options – Are you close to grocery stores and major shopping malls?
  • Check out the emergency services and hospitals – Fortunately, most active adult retirement communities in Ponte Vedra and Jacksonville are located near these facilities, but be comfortable with your location.
  • Security services – How does this community handle security? Is there an electronic gate only, a 24-hour manned gate, or manned gate and 24 hour patrol?

Choosing the right active adult retirement communities in Ponte Vedra is easier than you think!
