Top Questions to Ask While Touring an Active Adult Community

Looking for the perfect place to call home in your retirement? When it comes to finding the right active adult living community, it can be difficult knowing where to start. We’ve compiled a quick list of helpful questions to ask when visiting communities in your area.  

What are the options for housing?

For many active adults, considering the move to a 55+ community means downsizing from your current family home. This decision can feel overwhelming, which is why one of the first questions to ask when touring a community is what their living accommodations are like? 

At The Reserve, we offer the largest 55+ floor plans in the market. Our open layouts, high-end amenities and additional storage spaces provide a comfortable space to call home and make the transition from your family home to your new apartment seamless.  

What amenities does the community provide?

When moving to an active adult community, it is important that you can continue to enjoy the hobbies and passions you’ve always loved—and maybe pursue a few new interests as well! Is there a fitness center? A library? Are there common areas throughout the property? What about social events? Are there opportunities within the community to make connections with other residents? These are all important questions to consider when choosing the right community for you and your lifestyle. 

At The Reserve, we offer a variety of amenities and activities suited for every resident. Residents love our large, updated common spaces—the perfect spot for meeting with friends, hosting family gatherings or simply relaxing. Other amenities include: 

  • Library
  • Salon
  • Bistro
  • Theater
  • Private dining room
  • Craft room 

Our vibrant social calendar has something for everyone to enjoy. Try a new art class with your spouse; join a book club with fellow residents; or take a trip with your neighbors to a local restaurant or show in Geneva. We even provide transportation so that you can conveniently get to the places you want to go!

Is it a maintenance-free community?

A major benefit of an active adult living community is that most of the maintenance is taken care of for you! This frees you from the responsibilities and burdens of owning a home, allowing you to spend more time enjoying the people and things you love. As a resident of The Reserve of Geneva, lock-and leave when you need and let us take care of the snow shoveling, housekeeping, lawn mowing or home repairs.
