Missouri Retirement Homes
Many consider St. Louis
to be among the best retirement cities in the U.S. Here
are some other reasons to choose living in St. Louis.
studies have shown that a good group of friends is more
important to a happy retirement than money or health.
St. Louis offers many opportunities with civic groups
and hobby clubs to generate a solid core group of friends.
These friends can help ward off the problems of aging
like dementia and health issues.
rural living isn't good for seniors who can't drive
since they require someone's help to get around. The
expenses of transportation add up quickly for fixed-income
seniors so the public transportation of St. Louis is
quite beneficial. Even better is that most public transit
systems have senior rates that are much cheaper than
Access to Medical Services:
it's pretty obvious that if you live near a hospital,
you're more likely to survive a medical emergency. Despite
how your mind feels, the body starts to break down and
there's a good chance you'll need a hospital visit during
your retirement years. Living in St. Louis is great
since there are more specialists and medical services
available and at cheaper rates.
Access to Local Businesses:
city living offers walking distance to most businesses
that you'll ever use in your retirement years. Even
if you need to travel, there are a lot more shopping
centers and discount stores in urban areas.
Fitness: exercise is
critical to keeping healthy during your retirement years.
Cities have every type of fitness facility from standard
fitness centers to niche fitness places like indoor
rock climbing walls so there's something for everyone.
Even if you want to exercise on your own, there's tons
of parks or indoor malls to enjoy walking in.
today’s seniors know the importance of exercising
their brains, as well as their bodies. Urban living
provides access to a wide range of classes, through
local universities, museums, city recreation departments,
etc. Enrolling in these types of courses can help stave
off the depression that some people feel once they stop
working full time.
Food and Entertainment:
retirement should be full of activities you never had
a chance to enjoy while working. Dinners out to fancy
restaurants or weekend getaways to a nearby city or
historical site are all possible living in a city. Usually,
cities have tons of entertainment venues like theaters
and museums and there's always something going on.
