The Ideal Community to Retire In

For overseas Filipino workers (OFWs), coming home is the best reward for all the years of hard labor and sacrifice abroad. Finally, this is the season for you to relax, pursue the things you love, and most importantly, enjoy bonding with your family. Before returning to the country for good, however, you have to make sure that you’re coming home to a community that will support your lifestyle of rest and recreation moving forward.

Laguna is one of the top preferences of OFWs for their next residential address. A suburban community, it has that unique provincial charm, yet it is equipped with modern conveniences. If you’re one of those scouting for properties in this hotspot, consider these factors to ensure that your retirement years will be the happiest years of your life:

Proximity to Healthcare Services

The best way to enjoy retirement is to live healthy. You’ll have more time for your loved ones and your hobbies when your body is in the best condition. This consideration is especially important now that we’re living in the era of global health crises. An ideal home for retirement is one that has easy access to topnotch hospitals and clinics.

Althea Residences, a quiet residential enclave in Laguna, is surrounded by Biñan City’s first-rate medical institutions. Biñan Doctors Hospital, Perpetual Help Medical Center, and New Sinai MDI Hospital are only a 10-minute drive away from the residence. Developed by trusted company SOC Land, the peaceful neighborhood is strategically placed to promote convenience to residents.

Opportunities for Leisure Activities

Your retirement years are made for enjoying life to the fullest. This is the best time to explore (or revisit) hobbies. Your home must therefore make it easy for you to seize opportunities for recreation. In Althea Residences, this is possible since the neighborhood is also a short driving distance from leisure facilities, such as shopping malls, parks, and nature spaces.

Indulge in retail therapy every weekend, jumping from one mall to another. Central Mall Biñan, Pavilion Mall, and Southwoods Mall are just some of your options. If you want to commune with nature, the City of Biñan People’s Park is only a five-minute walk from Althea Residences.

From the city, it’s easy to travel to other towns in Laguna where you can experience the best of outdoor adventures. Go to Los Baños and experience hiking at Mt. Makiling. See the seven lakes of San Pablo, then experience the refreshing waters of Pagsanjan Falls. As you move to Althea Residences, embrace the thrill of exploring natural wonders in the province of Laguna.

Opportunities for Bonding with Loved Ones

Aside from exploring personal hobbies, you would be reconnecting with loved ones during your retirement. For this reason, ask yourself if the community you’re coming home to allows you to maximize time with family and friends. One of the best features of the idyllic neighborhood of Althea Residences is that within its vicinity, there are opportunities for recreational activities you can do with your loved ones.

Take a refreshing dip with your children and grandchildren at the pool. Have a friendly match with neighbors and host family reunions at the clubhouse post-pandemic. Host a potluck session at the picnic grove, while the young ones have a fun time at the playground. In Althea Residences, you can make the most of precious bonding with loved ones without necessarily stepping out of the community.

Safety from Harm

The home you’ll be spending your retirement years in should give you the peace of mind you deserve in terms of security. In between outdoor adventures and family bonding, the last thing you want is dealing with break-ins. In Althea Residences, 24/7 security is part of the neighborhood’s amenities. The entry gate has stationed guards. Roving officials patrol the streets all day. On top of that, the roads and sidewalks are well-lit and wider, keeping you and your family safe from neighborhood traffic.

The peace of mind in Althea Residences extends even to safety from natural disasters. Since the community was planned with an elevated location, efficient outfall, and drainage systems, you won’t have to worry about floods even in the strongest storms.

Space for Everything

The ideal community to retire in is one that features homes that accommodate all your leisure pursuits and family bonding activities. That said, when inspecting the units in a neighborhood, always ask, does this have enough space for my family and personal hobbies? In Althea Residences, you can choose from a variety of modern house models: Aralia, a bungalow; Ayanna, a single-attached home; Aurea, a single-detached home; and Althea Villas, a townhouse model.
