Just Who Lives in
"Those Places?"

The Answers May Surprise You.

Life Plan Communities don’t offer a one-size-fits-all proposition.

Residents work full time, pick up consulting gigs or relax into retirement. Some join every program. Some do their own thing. They travel abroad or stay close to home, enjoying leisure after a lifetime of business.

There's no right way or wrong way — there's only your way. Still, though, it can be hard to envision what community living really looks like. What do people actually do here? Well, whatever they please. Here’s how some HumanGood residents have chosen to spend their next act.

The Adventurers

For those chasing their next adrenaline rush: skydiving, running a marathon, traveling the world or embarking on a new exploration, Life Plan Communities support not only the adventuresome spirit but also the coveted lock-and-leave, maintenance-free lifestyle.

The Activists

If you’re on a mission to make the world a better place, everyday demands can feel like distractions from your deeper mission. Settling into a HumanGood Life Plan Community means doing less of what you need to do and more of what you want to do — now that makes a difference!

The Soloists

Curl up with a good book? Take a thoughtful wander down a walking trail? Dine in privacy? If you derive energy and rejuvenation from quiet time alone, you may wonder if community life is for you. Guess what? You don’t have to join everything — or even anything — to benefit from community life

The Community Builders

Life Plan Communities are microcosms of the greater communities they serve. No matter the individual interests and hobbies of those who join, the whole is typically greater than the sum of its parts. In other words, when you bring diverse yet like-minded people together, there’s no stopping the power of community that’s possible.

The Artists

Every artist needs a muse. And inspiration abounds within the people and places of Life Plan Communities. Art doesn’t thrive under pressure or deadlines. Life Plan Communities can help reduce both by offering an environment that clears space in your brain and stokes creative living.

Your Thing. Is Our Thing.

Life Plan Communities center on the passions and pursuits of the people who live there. Every community is what you make it, with plenty of opportunities to shape community life, explore new endeavors and dive deeper into what you love — all while reaping the rewards of connection, well-being and security.

The more you get to know who lives among our HumanGood Life Plan Communities, the more you’ll realize who lives in “those places” are people like you.
