Aging in Place is Better in Arizona

Aging in Place is Better in Arizona

Growing Old Together in CantaMia at Estrella

Aging in place is a hot topic for older Americans. Many people will choose to downsize from larger family homes, so it’s no surprise Active Adult communities for 55+ have become a fixture in homebuilding. And whether we like it or not, aging is inevitable, but life is not guaranteed from day to day, so why not make the most of it?

Once you hit the magic mid century mark (50) the concept of aging is a whole new ball game. As the years fly by, and your children grow and leave the nest, it’s only natural to start thinking about what’s next? Even though retirement may still be a few years away, questions like when and where will we retire? What will we do? Where will we go? Will become regular thoughts and topics of conversation with your S/O, family, and friends.

The big secret about aging? It’s all a state of mind, and you’re only as old as you feel. Arizona offers a high quality of life, and great healthcare, both important considerations when aging in place. With Arizona consistently making nationwide lists of top places to retire, it’s no wonder we welcome so many retirees to our state each year. Goodyear was named No. 22 on the list of best cities to live in America by Money magazine. Of course, one of the first places on the list when looking for a home for individuals and families of all ages is Estrella, in Goodyear, Arizona.

Estrella has four distinct villages: Mountain Ranch, Montecito, Lucero and CantaMia. Estrella builders offer multiple single-story homes for sale, which is a rarity in new home design, especially in some areas of the country. Estrella is also an incredible place for multigenerational living. CantaMia at Estrella is a perfect example where aging in place – in your own home – is simply the next step in life’s adventures.
