They say that old age is like a second childhood. And as we know all too well, every child needs to spend quality time with peers. The continued migration of graduates and increasing nuclearization of families, has resulted in a growing number of elderly folk living alone.
For them, gated communities are a godsend. Safe pathways for an evening stroll and easy access to hospitals and pharmacies, are just a few reasons why a gated community is an ideal choice for post-retirement life.
Most gated communities are insulated from the humdrum of city traffic and offer peace and tranquility to residents. They are also usually located close to essentials like pharmacies, stores, or ATMs, leading to a hassle-free day-to-day living. In addition to a peaceful and holistic life, gated communities also have top-level security features for the safety of residents. Most compounds come with 24-hour security surveillance and smart home devices, making it is a secure option for the elderly.
Fitness and activities
With a pool, an in-house gym and a bouquet of amenities, it is ideal for the elderly, especially if they prefer an evening stroll or a quiet swim. The recreational hall usually has classes like yoga, knitting or painting to give residents a break from monotony. With proximity to neighbours, residents can look to each other for motivation, or for help reaching their physical or intellectual goals.
The Home Owners Association (HOA) makes it a point to conduct regular programs to bring residents together, giving them an opportunity to interact with people of all age groups. There are also several group activities like bhajans, creative writing workshops, or arts and crafts, to bring like-minded residents together. This fosters a sense of community and gives residents an opportunity to create a family of their own.
