Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRCs) offer a much different experience than you may recall during your parents or grandparents retirement years. The new generation of seniors in retirement are not just looking for comfortable living; they are looking for diverse activities and programs. In the past, options like bingo and puzzles may have come to mind, but retirement in 2018 looks a lot different. Trips out to big cities, wine socials, and educational programs offered throughout the year are just a few examples of what can be expected.
Transportation is provided in most communities, allowing residents to not worry about traveling to nearby attractions that may not have previously been possible. Local museums, casinos, and restaurants are frequently found on activity calendars. In the warmer months of summer, day trips to close by beaches are common, as well as, exploring outdoor activities, like gardens and parks. Having an activity and transportation department take care of the planning for you making trips out stress-free and fun.
In addition to new places to visit, there are also events right in the community to keep you busy. Have you ever wanted to try tai chi? Or maybe line dance with your friends? With state-of-the-art fitness centers and indoor heated pools, CCRCs offer plenty of ways to stay fit. Diverse daily classes are a fun way to change up your daily routine and try something new. You can work on your fitness with Aquacise classes or improve flexibility and balance with yoga. These beneficial classes are continuously evolving and more popular than ever!
Beyond the programs and activities, CCRC’s offer amenities, such as game rooms, cafés, and art studios. Riddle Village residents have a few favorite spots of their own, like our cocktail lounge and the firepit for cozy nights outside. With your new kitchen and high-end appliances, you may also opt for a night in to host a dinner party or try out a new recipe.
While planned programs and activities are offered every day, you can also create your own calendar. You always have the help and support of the staff in our community, but you can still plan your day-to-day life to fit in what you love to do most!
