TruLiving Reinvents Wellness

When Pablo Picasso said, “youth has no age,” he had baby boomers in mind. This generation has proven that the secret to vitality is good health, and determination and while the majority of other 55+ communities offer the basic tools to live a healthy, and active lifestyle, Trumark companies are making it the focal point. Coming soon to Manteca, California, construction is currently underway for TruLiving, a one-of-a-kind 55+ community taking an entirely unique approach to wellness.

TruLiving will be the site of 490 single family homes, and the first to incorporate a WELL certified facility into its list of amenities. The 10,000 square foot clubhouse will include the seven fundamentals of the Well Building Standard; (air, water, nourishment, light, fitness, comfort, and mind) to integrate both physical, and mental well being. WELL certified communities are designed to meet strict standards of air, and water quality, use green materials, and maximize energy efficiency. This community recognizes that there’s more to health than just diet, and exercise by creating a living environment that nurtures the body, and feeds the soul.

Boomers are a discerning group of wellness influencers who have created the gold standard for healthy living. From alternative medicine to eco-friendly homes, health is being approached from a holistic perspective. TruLiving will offer a multi faceted lifestyle with numerous amenities to stay active including exercise classes, bocce, and tennis courts, as well a swimming pool, and phone app that allows 55+ residents to schedule activities, and stay informed of upcoming community events. Social connectivity has been linked to longevity more-so than an apple a day, and this highly anticipated community will keep active adults endlessly engaged. TruLiving will feature everything from group activities to volunteer opportunities, along with mind enhancing classes.

The Bay Area is synonymous with wellness culture making it the ideal location for this innovative community. Located just over an hour from San Francisco, the growing city of Manteca is nestled in the Joaquin Valley between Modesto, and Stockton, and maintains its safe, small town integrity. Residents of TruLiving will have access to shopping, and dining, as well as having plenty of room for a bike ride, or enjoying a walk. Wellness doesn’t come in a bottle, and potential homebuyers will find this community has set some pretty high standards to ensure that in order for them to feel their best, they have to live their best.

Carlsbad Inspires a Life of Leisure

Just under 40 minutes from San Diego, the Village By the Sea is one of those places you can’t help but fall for. It’s the perfect mix of everything a Southern California town should be, boasting youthful vibes, a touch of European class, and pristine coastal scenery. For many it’s just a vacation spot to visit popular attractions like Legoland, and the Sea Life Aquarium, but for long time residents of Carlsbad, this beachfront charmer is a safe, and friendly community with an affinity for wellness, and culture. Carlsbad made Kiplinger’s list of top retirement destinations, offering a variety of home options, reputable medical facilities, and a passion for the good life.

Carlsbad earned its namesake from the famous 19th century Czech Republic mineral water spa in Karlsbad, Bohemia, and is reminiscent of those beach vacations you never wanted to end. The entire stretch of Pacific coastline is pretty breathtaking, but the 7 miles of sand, surf, and sun that runs along the city’s edge is what converts so many snowbirds into permanent coastal dreamers. Whether you’re walking along the Carlsbad Sea Wall, or sinking your toes in the sand at Tamarack, and Carlsbad State Beach, the lifestyle is like a virtual postcard, where near perfect year round temps make it hard to want to stay indoors.
