Freedom from Chores
Here is where you really get to live the dream. In a seniors-only condo or apartment, all those years of mowing, weeding, gardening, watering, pruning and picking are lifted from your weary shoulders. Sure, you can put a little African Violet on the shelf or a few select herbs in small pots in the kitchen window, but only if you want to.
When the kids come to visit, tell them what a relief it is to not have to climb stairs, or how mowing was really starting to aggravate your hip replacement or that the sun doesn't agree with you. Whatever you need to say is fine. But after decades of responsibility, what you really need is a break. And a pool boy.
