With so many available options, finding a senior living community can be a daunting task. To avoid feeling overwhelmed, begin your search by establishing the features you need in your senior living apartment. Regularly planned outings, strong security and a thriving community center are just some of the most popular amenities that help make an active adult community feel like home.
A community center bustling with neighbors and things to do helps you keep busy and engaged. Community centers can include many potential amenities, such as a movie theater or recreation room. Many centers are also equipped with a kitchen, allowing you to entertain guests in the community center or party with your neighbors.

After spending most of your life with peers at school or in your career, you may feel a little lost after you retire. Aging can be lonely, especially if you live alone. However, the senior demographic is growing quickly. By 2020, approximately 17 percent of the American population is expected to be 65 or older. Living in active adult communities among others who are in a similar stage in life can help increase your happiness during your golden years.
Improve Your Social Life
Living in a location with a cohesive social environment can boost your mood. Research shows that it can also keep you mentally and physically healthy.

Active adult apartment communities have become more popular in recent years, as they let residents stay independent while giving them the chance to get away from the common responsibilities homeowners have. Age-restricted communities such as Solea Copperfield also have a variety of benefits to enjoy including social events, beautifully maintained grounds, and more.

It's been a couple weeks since we posted an update on our construction progress. We have been preparing a lot of the behind the scenes details (Hard Hat Tours Coming Soon!) to make sure we are on point for opening day! Our beautiful new home has taken on quite a new look over the last several weeks. Let's check out some of our most recent accomplishments.
1. We are almost dried-in in several buildings, building 5 is the last building waiting for the roof.
2. We are getting a face! The team has begun texturing the exterior of building 2 with stucco.
3. The pool was dug and concrete poured. (I see many refreshing dips in the pool this upcoming summer!)
4. The city permitted a new turn lane in the median for our future residents. We thought that was mighty of kind of them.
5. The demand has been so high for our apartment homes that we decided to set up a leasing trailer on site. We will have a leasing team on site 7 days a week available to answer all questions and concerns. Hard hat tours will be by appointment only.
6. Some of the homes...more
Fitness can be fun with amazing benefits
Fitness sometimes can be seen as a chore. You select a certain time or multiple days to put on your workout attire and head to the gym. Am I working on my legs or arms today? Cardio or strength exercises? The routine workout can get mundane. However, this isn’t the case when you are having fun and see the health and social benefits derived from your daily or weekly workout. Did you know your mood is boosted post fitness? As calories are burned for fuel, your body’s endorphin's rise making you happy and engaging. In fitness events such as group fitness classes, social anxiety is reduced making the individual open and receptive to other attendees. Individuals are more likely to interact and engage one another following a group fitness event. Not to mention, fitness helps improve memory, confidence, energy and helps ease depression. With so many benefits, why not improve your health by participating in fitness activities!
At Solea Copperfield, we have a fitness program that will fit your needs....more
The Founder's Club is in full swing. Last week, we met at the beautiful Sterling Country Club to enjoy delicious fajita's, refreshing beverages and great company while discussing moving strategies. Fitcasa joined us in the end to host a friendly pictionary competition.more
It's amazing what a little roof and Tyvek can do to change the overall look of construction. Construction has taken advantage of all this great weather making lots of headway on our soon to be new home. We now have 2 full buildings with roofs (#1 and #7-both on either side of the Resident Center). The teams are prepping these buildings for Sheetrock and Stucco (coming soon!).
We were also greeted with our first set of private garages. Looks like one guy didn't get the memo that it may take a few more days to complete, but we love their tenacity.
A few other items that were accomplished this week.
- Building 3's windows were installed
- Our veranda now has a roof
- We have stairs! All of the stairway landings were completed
- The resident center is starting to take shape
As we gather around with our new Founders Club members our Solea team is often overwhelmed with the sounds of laughter and first impressions being embedded as a forever memory. Most recently, it had us thinking; what would these conversations sound like if the year were... lets say 1962. Let's looks at some of the topics they may be discussing.
- Shelby Cobra
- Pontiac Grand Prix
Comics: Marvel's iconic Spiderman made his debut in June, 1962 even though it was dated for August (Whoops!)
Watching Solea Copperfield transform week over week is fun. This week we wanted to stop and appreciate the teams that are bringing this masterpiece together. These guys and gals are working relentlessly from sun-up to sun-down to build a home that will share a lot of laughs and a lot of memories. Thank you ladies, and gentlemen. Not a week (really a day) goes by that we don't see all the hard work you all are doing.
DID YOU KNOW: All of the roads/parking lots are almost finished? In a few months the construction dirt will fade to green space and the dirty crew cab's will be swapped out with our happy new neighbors.more
Construction is humming along and this week we were greeted with a beautiful shingled roof. Building 2 is the first section to top out. Building 3 (just behind building 2) completed framing the 3rd floor and our beautiful Clubhouse (front and center) is looking sharp with the 2nd floor addition.
Forget construction orange or yellow, hello construction purple. Drone photo's are always fun because you can find things you wouldn't normally see. This time it looks like our construction team added a little spice to all the natural wood color surroundings by adding a splash of purple to the mix. Looking good!more
Caring, Sharing, and Enjoying Life!
The Health Benefits from Social Interactions for Seniors
Research shows that seniors who are socially active and stay busy volunteering and maintaining a social network are some of the happiest and healthiest of their age group. Studies show they live longer than those who become isolated. The health benefits of volunteerism are well documented, but it is even more powerful when your service gives you a sense of purpose in life.

Framing is one of the most exciting times of the construction process. Everyday the project takes on a new shape and a new look. This week we are looking mighty tall. Buildings 2 and 7 are topping out with their 3rd floor and roof trusses. Building 3 is following close behind raising up the 2nd floor.
DID YOU KNOW?
Did you know that when looking at Solea Copperfield completed we will look like one solid building but we are actually 7 buildings put together? Don't you worry, there are elevators and beautiful hallways that make these seven buildings look like they have always belonged together.more
Part of living in an active adult community is taking an active role in your life as you start to cross the threshold into what’s traditionally thought of as the age of retirement.

Our Founders Club is designed to give residents a voice in how their community is structured. So why should you consider becoming a member?

We are moving right along and vertical too!
The teams are working on framing all three floors of the buildings. The area of the building that you can see with the concrete foundation will be our beautiful veranda that we anticipate many beautiful sunrises and sunsets will be enjoyed from.
EXPOSED: Check out our "good side" from our last photo shoot. If you look closely, you can see all of our floor plan layouts. No, those concrete columns are not chimneys. Those, my friends are our 3 elevator shafts.
Up..Up..And Away We Go!!more

At Solea Copperfield , we want you to understand how our boutique, resort style community is unique in its offerings compared to other housing options available. One of the best ways to do that is to offer more insight on the type of senior living experience we offer. As a premier 55+ active senior apartment community we focus on building a sense of belonging and fostering lifelong friendships and family-like neighbors.

What is active living? Active Living means you’re an individual that does not require assistance in normal day to day task. In an active adult community, you’re personally responsible for your meals, transportation, medical care, personal care and housekeeping.
