Florida has been traditionally a magnet for retirees. For generations, beginning at the turn of the 20th century, the mild weather and low taxes have drawn seniors to Florida. In the 1920s and 1930s, retirees traveled Henry Flagler’s railroad to spend their final years in Miami. Today, a new kind of seniors, those known as baby boomers, are demanding a new lifestyle and Florida has been a pioneer of the Active Adult Communities, featuring single-family homes instead of the conventional retirement high-rises.
Active adult communities in Florida include amenities such as walking trails, park areas and gathering places, as well as year-round landscaping and lawn maintenance. But as in conventional retirement communities, the homes are often built to make life simpler and easier for people who are aging. For instance, usually there are ramp entrances to the homes from garages instead of steps, so those in wheelchairs or with other mobility problems can make it into the house a little easier. Doorways are also made wider to accommodate wheelchairs. Even light switches and electrical outlets are strategically placed to reduce strain.
