Bunco gatherings. Picnics. Walking for fitness. Movie-watching parties.
These are just a few of the activities that define the abundant lives of Active Adults who have found the homes and neighborhoods that they now call home.
Believe it or not, these activities are still possible, while maintaining physical-distancing guidelines that help maintain health-safety.
Doesn’t it sometimes seem that, as soon as you have time to focus on the things you’ve always dreamed of – reading, traveling, taking up a new hobby – that’s the time when you start having trouble with your vision?
(A Boomer Poem, inspired by Crosby, Stills & Nash, 1970)
I’ll make the tea
While you tend the flowers in the courtyard garden. Hey,
We’ll prepare a healthy meal, and sit on the front porch and
Wave at neighbors who pause in walks to chat with you and me.
The first day of summer doesn’t officially happen until the middle of June, but in the United States, Memorial Day Weekend is traditionally recognized as the beginning of the summer season.
Like everything else, folks are getting creative in order to both honor the memory of fallen veterans, as well as maintain physical-distancing guidelines to maintain health and honor the medical professionals and other essential workers.
Holidays and celebrations offer opportunities for creativity and embracing technology, too. And tech-savvy Active Adults (or those who have tech-savvy grandchildren) can learn how to video-chat with their families this Mother’s Day weekend, using a variety of free apps or communications platforms that have been used for years in the business world, but are gaining popularity for individuals amid the quest to stay connected while staying at home.
More than 12.6 million Active Adults (ages 55 and up) regularly participate in volunteer projects, in which they donate time, services, goods, and financial support, to organizations that are important to them.
If you were searching for a home in March, before “social-distancing” was a thing, or if you sold your house a month ago and started renting “while looking,” don’t fret – Active Adults are still able to purchase a luxury ranch home without risking their health.
Windsong communities are built with the future in mind; a future we are actively working to preserve through innovative technologies and intentional decisions. Ensuring quality at every level of the homebuilding process also means providing for our homeowners once building is complete, which is why Windsong has begun integrating a smart irrigation system in our new communities, Echols Farm and Westbrook.
Staying active is easy when you have a gym membership and your personal trainer or fellow participants hold you accountable. But maintaining a strong, healthy body while staying safe at home requires just a few simple modifications, and some floor space in front of your television or computer screen.
