What should senior men look for in a retirement community?
What should senior men look for in a retirement community?

Independence matters to all of us, especially in retirement. When looking for a retirement community, you no doubt want the perfect blend of freedom and autonomy on the one hand, and on the other hand all the services and amenities you could dream of.

At Montereau, we occasionally hear from men who worry that moving into a retirement community means giving up self-sufficiency—that by trading in the lawn mower and leaf blower and the other tools of homeowner responsibility, they will somehow find themselves bored and adrift.

That’s why we work hard to provide a full calendar of activities and things to do, as well as clubs and meetups so you can get to know your neighbors and enjoy all the social benefits of retirement—with none of the work. Here are just a few activities men (and women!) will find at Montereau, helping you find your tribe of like-minded people who have worked hard all their lives, and who want to make the most of this special time:

  • Competitive activities: Men stereotypically love to compete, from sports to business, so gear up for a friendly competition, be it at the Ping Pong table, billiards in the game room, or card games at the happy hours.
  • Video games: Who said video games were just for kids? Here, you can pair your drive for competitive athletics with the latest in video game excitement. Wii Sports allow for virtual competitions—and allow you to stay active, too.
  • Service organizations: Join a volunteer or service organization to offer your time and talents while meeting other men on campus. Communities such as the Rotary Club or the Elks may host meetings in the activity rooms which gives you the perfect opportunity to take part.
  • Happy hours: An evening cocktail with neighbors or a beer at one of our campus restaurants is a great way to make new friends and toast the retirement of a lifetime.

There are countless ways to enjoy retirement at Montereau. With summer in full swing, now’s the perfect time to claim the apartment of your dreams. Schedule a tour today!
