The location of a CCRC can significantly impact your overall living experience and how well it aligns with your lifestyle and preferences. Let’s explore why location and accessibility matter and how they can enhance your retirement years.

Proximity to Family and Friends

When selecting a CCRC, it’s essential to consider its distance from your family and friends. Living closer to loved ones allows for more frequent visits and fosters a strong support network, contributing to a fulfilling retirement.

Climate and Environment

Consider whether the local climate suits your preferences and lifestyle, as it can impact your outdoor activities and overall enjoyment. Fortunately for our residents at Buena Vida, Melbourne, FL, is known for its mild climate and beautiful natural surroundings

Access to Healthcare

Access to quality healthcare services is crucial for seniors, and Melbourne offers a range of medical facilities and specialists. Choose a CCRC that is conveniently located near reputable healthcare providers to ensure you receive prompt and reliable medical attention when needed.

Buena Vida Estates prioritizes the well-being of our residents by ensuring they have access to top-notch medical care whenever required. We have doctors and physician assistants with diverse backgrounds who visit our community – this way, they bring the care to you. 

Safety and Security

Safety is a top priority for any senior living community. Look into the safety measures in place at the CCRC, including security personnel, emergency response systems, and the overall crime rate in the surrounding area.

Cost of Living

The cost of living in Melbourne can vary depending on the neighborhood and community amenities. Take the time to evaluate how the overall cost of living aligns with your budget and financial plans.
