Hi to all. I am new here and could really use some advice on a potential move to Sun City Peachtree. I am not asking all the traditional questions since they have all been covered before and I can search for them. I have a specific concern that I want to raise.

My wife and I are in our mid 60s. We have a daughter in her early 30s that lives with us and may always do so. My question is related to whether she will fit into the community. She is a substitute teacher working part time with special Ed students and would like to pick up similar work near Sun City Peachtree.

Will she be welcomed at activities or is the age difference with the demographic too great? Are there others in her age range.
Any comments and advice would be most welcome

I don't live at Sun City, although I have toured other Del Webb communities. My understanding is that it is an "active adult community" where each household must have at least one resident who is over 55. Usually people under 18 are not allowed as permanent residents. That said, you all meet the age requirements. Chances are that your daughter would not be the only under 55 resident, what with men with their younger trophy wives ( ) and kids moving in back with their parents after college and divorce.

Definitely most people in the community will be much older than her. Most people in their 30's would probably prefer to not live in this type of community. Your daughter could always try to find some social events nearby away from the community so that she can occasionally be with her peers.

I live in a community intended for people over 55, but it is not restricted to over 55, as is Del Webb. Consequently, we do have a couple who are in their 30's who bought here since it is handicapped-accessible. They have since adopted a baby---which may be a first for an adult community! So far, no issues with having a child here. I moved in when I was under 55 (was 52) since it wasn't restricted. The 30 year olds are welcome and included in all activities. I would hope it would be the same at a Del Webb community, with the exception of something like the Red Hat Society, which is restricted for women over 50.

Who don't you take advantage of the one or two night stay that Del Webb offers so you can live there for 24 to 48 hours, attend some activities, and get a feeling for how it would be?

Default Children over 30

I live in sun city and their are many grown children living with parents here. This is a lively community and the spirit is youthful, I believe she would be amazed at the number of activities that she would enjoy in the community.
This is not like a typical nursing home community it is a thriving active community.

She will find that there are others her age here. Trophy wives haven't seen or meet any but the community is very active and welcoming to all.

Any activity she could possible be interested in is here, even Zumba!!!!

Hi
Having grown children living with parents in a 55+ for a short time is ok but beyond that I would not like it.
The youth of today are into loud music especially rap music, so l know l wouldn't want to listen to it.

But if the person is well educated and respects others then they are welcome.
