WELCOME TO BABY BOOMER MEMOS
SHOULD AGING BABY BOOMER RETIREES MOVE TO OVER-55 COMMUNITIES?
Is an Over-55 Community the 'perfect place' for retired Baby Boomers to live?
These communities vary in size, from dozens to hundreds of residents. A well-known one in Florida has a population of thousands. All offer group activities and other opportunities to socialize with fellow boomers. Many provide access to health services; some provide medical care.
A huge plus is facilities, amenities, and services are geared to our generation. Of course, the more money we are able to spend, the more luxurious the accommodations and features.
A huge negative, according to disgruntled boomers, is the extensive range of rules, Rules, and RULES!
Apparently, Over-55 Communities are largely inhabited by married Baby Boomers, which may dissuade singles from moving in. Then again, marital status changes as we get older.
The grim reality is many marrieds, sooner or later, become widowed singles. On the other hand, quite a few singles meet new mates and become one of the marrieds.
