There’s never been a time when there were more retirement community options available to consumers. The large number of baby-boomers reaching the age of retirement has meant an upswing in the options available. Called “Niche Retirement” Communities, they cater to a particular interest in order to attract residents with something in common.
In a way, now is a good time to be a baby boomer looking toward retirement. After all, there are so many innovative options for retirement living.
Active adult retirement communities have become standard fare and co-housing and retirement village opportunities are growing.
And niche retirement options have been emerging and you now can find retirement environments that cater to your interests, whether that is art- and education-centered living or something else.
The newest wrinkle in retirement care comes from the recreational vehicle (RV) set. It serves seniors who have enjoyed their golden years on the road.
The Escapees CARE Center is one answer to the question “What happens to full-time RVer’s when they can’t care for themselves because of an illness or because of long-term health needs?” CARE stands for “continuing assistance for retired escapees.”
The unconventional care option in Livingston, Texas, adjacent to an RV park, delivers services to RVer’s who no longer can be on the road and who need assistance. That help can include daily meals and snacks, transportation to medical appointments, access to a nurse, and adult daycare programs.
