The Next Generation of Senior Living

You’ve reached the point in your life where you’re ready to downsize and focus more on the things that matter most to you. It’s time to focus on doing things that make you happy and spending time with loved ones. As you begin to explore what this means to you, consider how a Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) could serve as the setting for the rest of your life.

Senior living has changed over the years and there are many diverse options to choose from. The best option can be found in a CCRC model, which with all its modern-day and life-enriching features, will leave you ready and excited to start the next phase of your life. A CCRC allows you the freedom to live the life you want to live while having all the resources you need to live right at your fingertips. 

If you’re looking for an active senior living community, read on to find out more about the options available to you. 


Location is one of the top priorities for many people choosing a senior living community.  Ideally, you want to be near the people and places you love. The best senior living communities are located in a quiet, relaxing, serene area that isn’t too far from more exciting activities. This makes for the best of both worlds. If you’re interested in visiting places outside the community, make sure to take a trip to the area to decide if it’s one you enjoy spending time in. 

The Fairfax, a modern expansion of First Community Village, is located in Columbus, Ohio. The buildings themselves are modeled after the English Country Manor architectural style. From the buildings you’ll see sweeping views of the lush, green campus. It’s home to many outdoor areas to relax, mingle and enjoy. The neighborhood is friendly and just a short distance away from walking and biking trails.

And when you get the itch for adventure, Upper Arlington is nearby for upscale dining and shopping. Or, head into downtown Columbus for a day at the zoo or aquarium, spend time at The Ohio State University or take in the Scioto River.

Floor Plan Layouts

Senior living communities typically come with many different floor plan layouts for you to choose from. They understand that people are choosing to move into the communities for many different reasons so having a variety of floor plans is crucial. 

Some are small, single bedroom layouts, while others are larger with big kitchens and sprawling living rooms. Consider the non-negotiables in terms of amenities to determine what you’re looking for in a living space. This will help you get an idea of what you want, and will also allow you to narrow down places. When trying to determine what you want most out of a living space, consider if you’d like it to be more of a private area, or if you expect to be entertaining family and friends.

Although units are beginning to fill at The Fairfax, you can choose from several different contemporary, open floor plans that include nine-foot ceilings, large windows with expansive views, and an oversized deck or patio for spacious living. Cook dream meals in a state of the art, gourmet kitchen. Enjoy easy bathroom living with dual sinks, and walk-in closets. Some layouts even include a fireplace and a separate laundry room. These senior living amenities are all maintenance-free, relieving you of responsibility so you can dedicate your time to what’s most important to you.

Health Care Options

Whether your main reason for looking into senior living communities was due to medical circumstances or not, having an onsite team of medical professionals is always beneficial. A major advantage of living in one of the best senior living communities is having constant access to health care and multiple levels of care. When the need arises, any additional care or increased level of care that is needed can be provided in a CCRC model, making health care easy and accessible. As a resident, you’ll be able to receive care as soon as you need it. 

Senior Living Community

Modern senior living comes with a strong sense of community and various activities you can participate in. Activity calendars will allow you to quickly become part of the community, make long-lasting friends, and explore new hobbies. You’ll also have the opportunity to discover new and exciting pastimes you may not have been exposed to before.

At The Fairfax, you’ll find no shortage of social, cultural and wellness events to keep your mind and body active. Enjoy the indoor pool with aquatic programming, or catch up with neighbors in one of the welcoming social spaces.

Schedule a Tour

A great way to decide if senior living is right for you is to schedule a tour of all the amenities, services offered, and the campus grounds. While The Fairfax is still in development, you’ll be able to get a feel for the community, atmosphere and senior enrichment, while also seeing which boxes it checks off on your list.  We encourage you to make a list of questions you want answered before you go, and bring a family member or friend to get their opinion as well.
