Isolation during Senior Years, Can Cause Depression

Once your children have left your home and gone on to pursue their own dreams, goals, and different lives, you may well experience a myriad of emotions. You may feel sadness, loneliness, anxiousness and above all, a sense of isolation. You may not have anyone to talk to or listen to your problems.  You may not know of anyone who is going through the same “rough patch” as you.  Research has shown that many seniors who find their home empty, once their children leave it, can become extremely depressed. Isolation is a major risk factor for the onset of major depression.

Maintenance Free Communities for 55plus active adult retirees & seniors

Why Do Many Baby Boomers Consider Maintenance-Free Living?

The American Dream is no longer home with a white picket fence, a yard, 2.5 kids and a golden retriever.  Things have changed dramatically in the last decade or so.  Now, more and more Americans are considering a home where there is no lawn to be mowed, fence to be painted and no walking the dog or shuttling kids to school.  Dog walkers and car-poolers may solve the last two problems, but not others.  This is because most Americans do not have the time for or the inclination to take on these tasks anymore.  Active lifestyles of empty nesters, baby boomers and seniors make them want to get the best out of their free time and maintaining gardens and homes is certainly not a fun-filled task! This is especially so if you are in the 55+ age group where home maintenance is certainly more of a chore than a joy. We find many baby boomers considering low maintenance or maintenance-free homes when moving into active adult communities for those very valid reasons.
