Smart Lifestyle Communities

Smart Lifestyle Communities

SMART Lifestyle Communities are not senior living properties. They are unique housing options that offer excellent locations, lots of amenities and none of the stigma that is too often associated with senior living communities.

Sourcebook coined the term SMART Lifestyle Communities to identify the many existing properties that offer the locations and amenities we know our readers want. The fact that these properties cater to residents of all ages and abilities makes them even more appealing to many of our readers. For decades, Sourcebook readers have said, “I’m not ready yet” when faced with retirement living decisions. This is especially true when it comes to choosing a senior living community. Often, older adults hesitate to make vital decisions because of the stigma they attach to the senior living industry. We know this stigma is not accurate, but it persists.

While SMART Lifestyle Communities are easy to love, they can be hard to find. One way to find SMART Lifestyle Communities is by using the website WalkScore.com. Using property addresses, you can easily assess the convenience of individual locations. Determine if any potential communities are near shops, grocery stores, restaurants, bike paths and public transit.
