ACTIVE ADULTS/ACTIVE SENIORS are those 55 and older who are still healthy enough to enjoy independent lifestyles filled with physical, as well as social, activities. These seniors might elect to live in active-adult communities where they can socialize with other active seniors, play sports, and receive any health care services they need.
