55+ Retirement Communities in CT

55+ communities are on the rise in Connecticut, one of the three hottest retirement destinations in New England today. Baby-boomers from all over the East Coast are discovering the benefits of spending their golden years in the Constitution State’s many and varied age-restricted communities. CT offers more than 150 retirement communities, most of them having been developed in the past ten years. If the beauty of changing seasons and the picturesque landscapes of New England appeal to you, Connecticut may be just the right place to start your search for the ideal retirement lifestyle.

Many active seniors select Connecticut as their retirement destination because of the relaxed atmosphere of its many small New England towns – within close proximity to major metropolitan areas such as New York City and Boston. Among Connecticut’s numerous shoreline towns, Madison and Guilford offer some of the best retirement living options. With easy access to lovely walkable downtown areas, cultural activities, arts and entertainment, and shopping are readily available to residents of nearby retirement communities. Both towns are located along Long Island Sound, offering seaside hiking trails, beach access, boating and fishing for active baby-boomers. Madison even boasts its own State Park, Hammonasset Beach, with Connecticut's longest stretch of undeveloped beaches.

Some retirees may appreciate the benefits of living in a 55+ community in one of Connecticut’s bustling college towns. New Haven, home to Ivy League’s Yale University, offers restaurants for every taste and budget, live music venues, theatre, and a number of wonderful art and history museums. Because it is a college town, everything is within walking distance or a short ride on the town’s comprehensive public transportation system. In addition, seniors find the close proximity to two major hospitals a plus. Most senior housing in the New Haven area consists of apartment and condominium communities.

Whether you are looking for a shoreline or college town, or are more interested in a superior golf community or a metropolitan area such as Bridgeport, there is a wide range of retirement communities to choose from in Connecticut. Home styles in senior communities range from small, easy-to-maintain single story homes in suburban neighborhoods to stylish city condominiums in urban areas. No matter what style of home you choose, 55+ communities are usually conveniently located near cultural amenities, medical and health care facilities, public transportation hubs, and shopping centers, as well as recreational facilities such as golf courses, biking/hiking trails, and marinas.

The 55+ communities in CT offer retirees the opportunity to live in pleasant, quality housing, enjoying provided property maintenance, neighborhood security, on-site recreational and fitness facilities, and the companionship of others in the same phase of life.
