For those who choose to live a maintenance-free lifestyle, and not worry about the upkeep of a home, “Independent Living” options are the best choice. This allows older adults (typically 55+) to either rent (or purchase) a home, condominium, or an apartment, and enjoy community amenities such as a clubhouse, meal plans, housekeeping, transportation and social activities. Some communities offer spas or pools as well.
55 and above communities are common here on Delmarva’s shore as many retire here, not just from MD, DE and VA, but NY, PA and NJ as well. The latter states enjoy much lower taxes, making the Eastern a Shore a desirable place to retire and live.
