When you make the decision to leave your current home and move into your next adventure, do it for the right reasons. At the Christenson Group of Companies, we call it low-maintenance living. When we begin a project, location is always a critical consideration. We believe retirement communities should offer fun, active options that entice you to explore your neighbourhood, meet your neighbours and enjoy life to the fullest.

Arbutus Ridge - 50+ Active Adult Community in Cobble Hill, BC

Please be cautious. Yes, you read correctly. As you transition into an active retirement life, you may find that your family home is just too big for you and your spouse — certainly you are using fewer rooms since the kids moved out — and it may be time to start fresh, in a home designed with you in mind. Active adult communities are sprouting up across the country, attracting a healthy cross-section of full-time workers, semi-retired and those who left working behind years ago.

Is an adult retirement community right for you?

Note: There are other types of age-qualified communities for seniors as well, among them continuing care retirement communities [also called CCRCs or life plan communities] and rental retirement communities. These communities can be comprised of single-family houses, as well as multi-family patio homes, condominiums, or townhomes, with units that are owned by the resident as opposed to a rental community. Often, this type of 55 and over community will be built near shopping, restaurants, parks, and other attractions, since residents are still eager to live an active lifestyle into their retirement years. Residents are able to enjoy other aspects of their retirement years, without the burden of maintaining a yard or dealing with other exterior home maintenance chores or repairs.
The Security Team is trained to assist during household emergencies prior to the arrival of outside emergency responders. The team provides professional and friendly service to residents and visitors. They also regularly patrol the community, and ensure that contractors and deliveries are properly directed. Please note that the demographics of the community for most listings are completely incorrect, especially as regards to children. The demographics will be corrected by Stats Canada in the future.
