Life is always in flux, change is constant. Survival in life (and intelligence) is based on one fundamental thing – the ability to adjust. A happy life tends to be characterised by an ability to embrace change and to make the most of any situation. Mature adulthood is just as full as change as any other life stage.
Healthy adaptation to mature adulthood is founded on embracing inter-dependence, increasing sociability and opportunities for social interaction. Mature adults do not want to feel that they are a burden to their own families, and also want to allow their children their own lives and careers. Turning to a retirement community is a healthy choice, an adaptation that contributes to survival. Its a measured fact that residents in a retirement community add five years to their live – that is how important social connection can be to life.
Younger adults who can live independently safely would choose a retirement cottage in a village that has care on-site. Pembury Magaliesburg is an ideal village for independent younger retirees, a peaceful lifestyle in fresh air and nature. There is a tennis court to keep fit, a huge pool and large estate for country walks.
