They’re called the golden years for a reason; they should be the richest, most rewarding time of life. Choosing the right community is the ﬁrst step in fulﬁlling this promise.
Retirement communities are as varied as the individuals they serve. Some merely provide housing, while others offer residents a comprehensive community with recreational facilities, dining, social activities and more. One example of the latter is Gainesville’s North Florida Retirement Village – The Village, for short.
The Village is tucked away on 104 acres, accented by the natural beauty of small ponds, tall pines and native live oaks, yet just 10 minutes from major shopping malls, theaters and restaurants.
As an all-rental community, at The Village, residents choose from a variety of accommodations, from individual cottage-style homes to luxury apartments and even assisted living. Whichever option they select, they are certain to enjoy the ﬁnest that North Central Florida has to offer. Spacious rooms, exquisite views and ample closets are just a few of the amenities one can expect.
“Our residents can’t say enough about the quality and attention to detail,” says Village Director of Marketing, Michele Rist. “Unlike many other retirement communities, residents of The Village do not have to pay a large entry fee to move in.
”The Village is truly a community in every sense of the word.
An exciting calendar of activities provides opportunities for fun and friendship. Excursions to shopping, museums and other daytrips are always within reach, as are on-property options such as art courses, exercise classes, gardening and tennis, just to name a few.
At the heart of the property is the luxurious clubhouse, The Tower Club, where residents enjoy café-style dining, a state-of-the-art computer center, a complete health and ﬁtness center, beautician and barbershop and much more. Outside, the swimming pool, hot tub and umbrella-shaded tables call neighbors to relax and unwind.
The Village is currently undergoing a multi-million dollar expansion, adding a number of new buildings to accommodate future residents. Two of the buildings, Magnolia Grand South and The Cypress will provide luxury and resort-style apartments, while the third, Jasmine Pointe, will complement the community’s existing assisted living facilities.
“We’re genuinely excited about the expansion and so are our residents. Many have already encouraged friends and relatives to join our waiting list,” says Rist. “It’s rewarding to know people enjoy this community so much that they want to share it with those they care about most.
”When choosing your retirement destination, explore all the options and ask the tough questions and you will be sure to enjoy, “retirement the way it should be.”
