Evaluation Criteria Luxury Living Communities

Those who like to live their life in style should continue to do so – even in their retired life. Luxury living retirement destinations offer all of the beauty, comforts and amenities that you’ve grown accustomed to and should expect for your retirement lifestyle.   However, there is such a large number of luxury communities available and variety of amenities offered, it’s difficult to narrow down your search. BestRetirementDestinations.com has taken the guesswork out of finding that perfect community.  We have done extensive research to determine the criteria that is important to those living in a luxury retirement community. The destinations that appear on our ranking system have proven themselves to be above the standard in five critical areas.  Ranking Criteria:  Visual Appeal: The architecture of the buildings themselves, both the main facility and homes are considered. Was the community laid out with thought and planning to take advantage of the surroundings? The appearance of landscaping and public areas are included as well as the natural beauties of the surrounding area. Does it stand up to the rating of a luxury community?  Personalized Care: The availability of a concierge and staff to attend to personal requests are included in this criterion. A luxury community must go one step further and the individualized care is a factor in this rating. Is there a personal trainer in the fitness facility? Does the community provide personal shopping, car washing, or dog walking?  Fine Dining/Shopping: This criterion includes not only fine dining and upscale shopping experiences in the community but also in the surrounding vicinity. The quantity and proximity are also taken into consideration.  Safety/Security: This includes the level of the security force on duty. Is there 24 hour security that patrol? Are the communities gated? Are all public area’s well lit at night? The level of fire protection and the response time is also an important component of this criterion.   Culture & Arts: This includes the existence of culture and art activities in the community, such as a library, performing arts theatre, or art gallery. Also included is the availability in the surrounding community at large, both stationary and traveling exhibits and museums.
