How Baby Boomers Are Changing Senior Living

People are looking to independent living communities for a sense of freedom and convenience, possibly even before retirement. The common denominator amongst the people in this phase of their lives is that many of them are included in the Baby Boomer generation.

Baby boomers are having a large impact on retirement and senior living. This is a generation of like-minded individuals, so targeting their needs and exceeding their expectations creates a cohesive community for an enjoyable senior living experience.

Because most of the people who are looking into retirement communities right now were born of the Baby Boomer generation, residents are forming familiar bonds with each other they may not have expected.

Whether you’ve begun considering your retirement options or not, it is important to know that your generation is shaping the future of senior living. And it’s nothing like you’ve ever seen before.

The Baby Boomer Impact

With amenities and services custom-made to enhance your life, the stigma around retirement is rapidly changing. When you think about retirement, what is it that you imagine? Whether you see a more calm and relaxed lifestyle, a vibrant and active day to day, or a combination of both, the choice is yours. 

You have the independence to live as you wish. 

In order to keep up with the shifting dynamic of the Baby Boomer generation, retirement communities are having to completely restructure their framework. But, luckily for you, The Fairfax is in the process of designing a retirement community centered around you and all things baby boomer.

And what is The Fairfax you may ask?

Introducing The Fairfax 

Imagine a spacious residence with luxurious features and amenities in a community with endless possibilities. Envision lavish dining with exquisite cuisine. Picture yourself in a close-knit community of seniors simultaneously pursuing their passions — that is The Fairfax.  

The Fairfax is an expansion of First Community Village, which is a Continuing Care Retirement Community, or Life Plan Community, offering unique amenities and comprehensive healthcare services in Columbus, Ohio. When The Fairfax opens in summer 2021, it will feature 70 contemporary apartment homes in the English Country Manor style.

 Your generation has been the inspiration for this community. The ideas, morals, and history of the baby boomers are rooted in the amenities, the passion, and all that is to come to The Fairfax.

The Campus, Location and Amenities

Baby boomers are known for valuing choice, community involvement, and independence. At The Fairfax, we do not take your values lightly. We know these values have molded you into the wise individual you are today. With every aspect of the community thought out with deep consideration, The Fairfax has crafted desirable amenities and services that align with your values!

To name a few:

  • Maintenance-free living
  • A vibrant neighborhood setting with sweeping views of a lush, tree-lined campus
  • Private, gated entrance for security
  • Spa, fitness center, and an indoor pool with aquatic programming
  • Climate controlled parking
  • Warm and welcoming social spaces, along with a full schedule of social, cultural, and wellness activities
  • Walking and biking trails
  • Upscale dining and shops within walking distance


The Healthcare

In the past, retirement communities have offered the same, limited healthcare services to all members, but there is no successful one-size-fits-all approach in healthcare. Everyone has their own unique healthcare needs and we understand how important it is to address them, individually.

One of the special things about a Continuing Care Retirement Community is the personalization of healthcare. At First Community Village, we offer various layers of healthcare services such as independent living, assisted living, rehabilitation, skilled nursing, and memory care. By living at The Fairfax, you can enjoy an active lifestyle and have all your individual healthcare needs met, while also maintaining a high level of personal wellbeing.

 The Food

One thing that cannot fly under the radar is your unique palate. Over the years, you’ve experienced both traditional and contemporary flavors; you’ve dined at the best restaurants; and you’ve experienced the love and warmth of a home-cooked meal. No longer can senior living communities get by with mundane menus and insipid food. Your generation has pushed the threshold of all things dining. 

And at The Fairfax, we know that to be true. Whether you choose to enjoy an artisan, chef-prepared meal in our dining center, a home-cooked meal in your state-of-the-art, gourmet kitchen, or to wander to Downtown Columbus/Upper Arlington, the possibilities are endless.

Senior living is no longer about settling down; but rather living advantageously, passionately, and luxuriously. You’ve done your fair share of hard work, and now, it is time for you to live the life you’ve always wanted — always craved.
