Just imagine what it must feel like being a retiree in a musty old retirement home. The best entertainment to be had there are old black-and-white productions screened once a week, a shuffleboard game, and perhaps Bingo, Friday nights. Perhaps you're wondering if the person who designs these retirement homes comes from a background designing prisons. You can also look for brand new luxury apartments in Malvern for retirees.
What with all the decades that seniors up to now had to put up with substandard facilities, take the baby boomers and everything has to change – there have to be spas, exercise rooms, swimming pools, hiking trails and of course screening rooms showing the latest movies. That's just what it takes to run successful retirement homes these days. And that's just the older retirement homes. New ones are being built from the ground up with every luxury you can think of.
Retirement homes these days are built condo-style where individual units are built into apartments; you will also find separate homes and everything in between. The decision will be yours to make what kind of place you will choose.
It used to be that retirement communities housed thousands of people; these days, they build smaller, more private communities of retirement homes for people who want a cozier atmosphere. The choice again will be yours.
Whatever you do, make sure that you choose a retirement community that doesn't have any restrictions in place on how much you can socialize. That could be a deal-breaker to most modern retirees.
