Helping Las Vegas Seniors Make Themselves at Home
According to Nevada Public Radio, 17 percent of Clark County’s population is 60 or older, and approximately 30 percent of newcomers to Las Vegas are senior citizens. The warm climate, entertainment options, affordable cost of living and no state income tax have long made Las Vegas a popular retirement destination.
Many senior housing organizations have established senior living communities to address the urgent need for senior housing. The Las Vegas community offers a number of desirable active adult communities with fantastic amenities and social opportunities. SunCity Anthem, for example, boasts a 77,000 square foot community center with an indoor lap pool, computer lab, meeting rooms and much more. Residents stay active and healthy using the community’s fitness centers and hiking and biking trails. There is always something to do, as area clubs and organizations post a full roster of events.
Retirees not living in retirement communities can take advantage of the beautiful community centers around the valley that offer activities and programs designed especially for seniors. Most centers offer classes and activities, fitness facilities and social events.
In addition, there are more than 50 golf courses in the Las Vegas Valley, so you can always get a tee time, and many courses offer discounts to seniors. If you enjoy bowling, Las Vegas has some of the best bowling in the country, with state-of-the-art facilities and reasonable prices. Some bowling centers are even open 24 hours a day so you can work on your game around the clock!
20/20 Plumbing and Heating, Inc. recently completed a quality project at Flamingo Pines Senior Living in partnership with Nevada Hand Construction, a nonprofit developer, builder and manager of affordable rental homes for seniors and working families.
This independent senior (55+) community, located in the heart of the Southwest Valley on West Flamingo Road near South Durango Drive, consists of 175 units. Each unit is thoughtfully designed for senior citizens, with grab bars in bathroom areas, handheld showers standard in each unit and toilets that are all comfort height. The boiler room designed by 20/20 Plumbing & Heating provides a continuous flow of hot water to each unit with no wait time.
Amenities at Flamingo Pines Senior Living include a clubhouse, pool, beauty salon, fitness facility, business center with internet and on-site laundry facilities. This pet-friendly community does not charge monthly pet fees and has a dog park on-site. A Resident Services Coordinator is always available to connect tenants with local resources, including community assistance programs and volunteer groups, as well as community activities, like potlucks, games, movie nights and trips.
Flamingo Pines is just minutes from Desert Breeze Park, shopping, dining and entertainment destinations. As an added bonus, there are spectacular views of the Las Vegas Strip to the east and the distinctive formations of Red Rock Canyon to the west.
