What It Means To Live In A Senior Community


Around major Indian cities, a new trend is cropping up- that of gated communities designed specifically for seniors. Whoever thought of the idea first is obviously a genius. When you combine people who’re want to live a peaceful life, the environment that lets them be at peace and amenities that make living there as comfortable as possible, you have the senior gated communities.


Some such communities are cropping up on the outskirts of metros and in smaller towns like Coimbatore, Pune, Chandigarh, etc. From in-house meal providers to nurses on call and even homes that are designed with few stairways and a lot of access, to clubhouses and senior-centric activities, these are the new homes every senior wants to invest in. What are the benefits of living in a community like this?


  1. For one, guaranteed peace! Since everyone living here has seen life and wants to now relax, you need not worry about speeding motorbikes and parties that get louder by the minutes. It may actually be possible to listen to the birds chirp.
  2. You have all the privacy you need without being isolated. As long as you’re at home, you have the privacy you want. Step out and you can always bump into friends going for walks.
  3. There is more than adequate help in the form of chefs, trainers, doctors and caregivers. Couple this with the number of like-minded people you’ll meet and you won’t have to worry about not having anyone around to help.
  4. Most of these communities are built with a focus on space. So whether you want to take long walks or need space to pursue gardening, you’ll have more than adequate space to do whatever you want. Coupled with clubhouses and regular events, you may never have a dull moment.
  5. Since they’re built to be closer to cities, you can always come to one of them whenever you feel like without accessibility issues. If you have relatives living in these cities, even better.
  6. Most importantly, a community of people with the same interests can do much more together than they could when scattered everywhere.


It is no wonder then that so many people, when looking to buy a home, are choosing to invest in these smart, senior-friendly homes. And why shouldn’t they, with a host of benefits that guarantee a relaxed life!
