Without the worries of having to drive to locations like the gym, park, or community center, seniors can enjoy engaging activities only steps from their residence door. Many of the features of retirement communities have been designed to keep seniors moving, stimulated and social so it's easy to remain active in numerous ways.

Attend Fitness Classes

At an independent living community, you never have to work out alone as they offer personal trainers and group exercise classes both in and out of the on-site pool. By exercising with fellow residents in a class or just as part of your daily routine, you're always motivated to keep moving and stay healthy.

Take Enrichment Classes

It's never too late to learn a new skill and at an independent living community, you can attend classes that offer instruction on woodworking, painting and other crafts. There are also motivational and educational classes and support groups designed to enlighten your mind and support your well-being.

Attend Social Events

In order to feel like a true, close-knit community, senior living facilities have group rooms including auditoriums, ballrooms and group living areas where residents can attend interesting social events that include dancing, singing, great dining, guest speakers and much more. The more events you attend, the better you'll know your neighbors so you can coordinate gatherings outside of those scheduled at the community.

Explore Surroundings

With lushly landscaped grounds and paths right outside your door, exploring your surroundings is a great way to stay active at an independent living community. The private roads and paths of the community ensure both safety and privacy as you enjoy the fresh air surrounded by interesting water features, tropical plants and tall shade trees. When you want to venture out and about in Venice, it's easy to take the community-offered transportation service to local shopping, dining and events.

Become a Club Member

Residents at your retirement community in Venice, Florida come from a variety of backgrounds and have brought their interests with them into the community's clubs and groups. Whether you love gardening, reading, knitting, baking, painting or a multitude of other activities, chances are good that a club exists with you in mind. To become even more active in the community, you can create a new group or club.
