Senior Citizens Moving to Gated Community Villas
People of today are living for more number of years, thanks to many factors: increased life expectancy, improved disease treatment facilities, and better standards of living, among others. The 2011 census says that there are over 76 million seniors and is expected to surge to 173 million by 2025. That is a huge number.
With changes in family structure and rise in the number of nuclear families, many older residents end up staying all by themselves. This is rampant in metro cities such as Bangalore. Elderly citizens are on the lookout for moving into Hebron Enclave that have access to facilities like hospitals, supermarkets, libraries and other entertainment venues that are easily accessible.
