Explore all South Florida has to offer seniors and older adults
In today’s upbeat and energetic society 55 is the new 25. That’s why the top senior communities in South Florida are created for the active ager.
In Southeast Florida, there are currently 92 communities to choose from.
At Papa, we looked at which communities out of these 92 had the best safety and resort style amenities.
Seniors who live in some of these communities were interviewed and they said they started feeling more like themselves again when they moved here and they also improved their relationships with their families.
The communities that made our list all have age restrictions, gated entry, clubhouses, fitness centers, golf courses, outdoor and indoor pools, restaurants on site, an aerobics and dance studio, an arts and craft studio, bocce ball courts, community transit, a ceramics studio, a sewing studio, a lapidary studio, educational classes, a stained glass studio, a ballroom, a performance and movie theatre, a woodworking shop, tennis and pickle ball courts, a photography studio, and R.V or boat parking.
Now seniors have a place where they can live and play while feeling safe right outside the steps of their homes.
