Boomers / / March 11, 2017

The Baby Boomer generation has always been defined by its unwillingness to accept societal norms – boomers are wildly optimistic, routinely rebellious. So, it shouldn’t surprise anyone that today’s boomers are pushing back and refusing to retire and grow old in the traditional sense.

When it comes to senior living, this group of aging adults will not settle for a clean bed anymore-- They are transforming the landscape, demanding hiking trails, tennis courts, educational courses, and amenities and luxury. The senior living communities are delivering!

Check out some of these incredible facilities and amenities available to aging seniors:

1. Aegis on Madison – Seattle, WA: Offers creative, high-end amenities including man caves, computer labs, wine cellars, on-site theaters, and rooftop decks.  

2. Atria Living – New York, NY: Offers Gourmet Dining and over 200 cultural and social events monthly including computer lessons, musical concerts, drama and men’s clubs, language classes and more. 

3. Belmont Village – Los Angeles, CA: Offers lectures from UCLA professors and fashion shows.

4. Judson Manor - Cleveland, OH: Offer multigenerational “University Circle Living” where college students live with the residents rent free. In exchange, these students lead programming and interact with residents. This has profound effects on combating dementia. 

5. Silverado Cedar Park Memory Care Community – Cedar Park, TX: Modeled entire facility to look like an old town, an era the residents are familiar with and take comfort in for memory care patients.
