How Housing Preferences are Changing for Baby Boomers
It is estimated that there are over 72 million baby boomers in the United States, with about 10,000 people turning 65 each day. As the generation of boomers moves into retirement, many people are reconsidering their housing options during the “golden years” of their life. What is your housing plan through your 100th birthday?
It is not Your Grandpa’s Nursing Home
Even though the term ‘nursing home’ is still an all too common perception, baby boomers agree that these care “facilities” are not an option to consider. Boomer aren’t looking for a place to wait out the rest of their lives. Today’s active senior wants a home that supports their busy lifestyle and helps them enjoy the finest quality of life.
As a result, retirement communities of all sizes and shapes are investing millions of dollars to offer the amenities and housing options that people are asking for to thrive. The environments are modern and contemporary, offering luxury living conditions for baby boomers.
Rethinking Retirement Housing
Baby boomers have one common characteristic: they are rethinking the unstated rules about retirement living. The retirement age is changing, giving many people the flexibility to choose retirement at a time that works best for their individual situation.
Technology has forged a way for people of all ages to stay connected with their family from any location in the world. So, many baby boomers are considering the option to “right-size” their home and spend part of the year traveling to exotic locations. When they are home, they want easy access to golf courses, shopping malls, fitness centers, cultural centers, and other options that fulfills their need for a engaging lifestyle.
