Questions About 55+ Communities and Arlington, TX

Making the move to a 55+ active living community is a major decision. Find answers to questions you have about why you should choose Elements at Viridian.

What is a 55+ Community?

Communities geared toward residents 55-plus go by many names such as 55+ community, active adult community, senior living community, retirement community, etc. Although these communities aren’t exclusive to retirees, 55+ is the age range of the residents. They tend to have residents still in the workforce, grandparents, retirees, and life stages in between.

While a 55+ community is still a neighborhood, it has so much more to offer. The design is for adults who are independent and looking to make a change to a home that requires minimal maintenance. On top of home builders building these low-maintenance homes, the amenities and location bring together like-minded neighbors to these active living communities. That way, residents can spend more time doing the activities they love.

Elements at Viridian is one of these communities designed for you to live the adventures you are about to have. Come visit our 55+ active lifestyle community or sign up to be the first to get updates about what’s new.
