The Complete Manual for Selecting the Ideal Retirement Community

Retirement is a highly personal experience, and what each person envisions for their golden years can vary widely. Whether you're a golf enthusiast who wants to live in a resort community or want to explore a walkable city, the right retirement community can be a significant life change.

When shopping for a new home, visiting several communities is essential. Here are five things to consider when choosing the right one.


When looking for retirement communities, it's essential to consider where you want to live. Some people prefer to be close to their children and grandchildren, while others like to live near historic sites, cultural hubs, or scenic spots.

You also want to ensure the community is affordable within your budget. Be sure to research monthly costs and any potential entrance fees.

Lastly, it would help if you inquired about the various care tiers that the community provides. When your needs change, you'll be able to remain at the same facility rather than having to relocate. For example, The Villas Wichita may feature nursing homes and assisted living facilities on the same property or nearby buildings. It can help you save money and time.


Numerous retirement communities provide a range of amenities to encourage their residents to lead active and exciting lives. Some have a pool, gym, and spacious grounds promoting physical fitness. Others provide entertainment venues like bars and lounges for socializing with friends.

Other communities may include a range of care levels so that seniors can continue to live there as their health needs change. Depending on the community, the different levels of housing and care may be arranged on separate floors of a high-rise building or in physically adjacent buildings.

Touring retirement communities to understand their culture and lifestyle is essential. It will help you decide the best fit for your needs.


Many seniors prioritize an active and engaging lifestyle. Finding a retirement community with the proper daily programming can help them stay energized and healthy.

Hobbies and activities are also crucial to retirees, as they can foster community connections and feelings of belonging. For instance, engaging in sports like tennis or golf is a great way to meet people and maintain physical fitness.

Retirement communities typically offer a variety of recreational activities, such as gardening classes, music lessons, and art workshops. Ask for the current month's calendar in the communities you're interested in to see their plans. Many communities even have groups for those who love to travel or have a passion for hobbies like bridge or cooking.

Health Care

There's no one-size-fits-all retirement community, and that's a good thing. Different senior living options offer various health services and varying price tags. For example, independent living communities focusing on self-sufficiency might offer fewer onsite healthcare services than those in CCRCs, which provide a full continuum of care.

It would help if you visited each community you're considering to observe its onsite medical care (especially its employee turnover rate and incident reports), learn about its care philosophy, and understand its pricing structure, including monthly fees and any possible entrance fee. It will help you choose a retirement community with the proper healthcare and wellness services.


Many people have concerns about cost when choosing a retirement community. It's essential to evaluate the initial entry fee, monthly fees, and services offered at each location and compare them with your current expenses and projected costs as you age.

Also, consider that options are available to help pay for the costs associated with retirement communities. For example, some seniors can sell their life insurance policies to third-party investors in exchange for a lump sum payment. By exploring these options, you may find a retirement community more affordable than you initially thought. For more information, contact a reputable life settlement company for guidance. It is an excellent option for individuals looking to maximize their financial resources for the future.

MAGGI Sarap Sustansya Advocacy: Enhancing Iron Intake for Filipino Wellbeing

Iron deficiency, a persistent public health concern in the Philippines, continues to affect 10.4 percent of the population, especially vulnerable groups such as children and pregnant women. MAGGI, as a trusted partner to home cooks, is actively addressing this issue through initiatives like the MAGGI Sarap Sustansya Advocacy, which partners with DepEd and DA-BPI to promote dietary diversity. Additionally, MAGGI provides recipe services and fortified foods to improve access to nutritious options. 

Here's the infographic by MAGGI offering tips on how to get enough iron in your daily diet.

Read more from the Press Release Kit:

Manila, Philippines – Latest data from the Food and Nutrition Research Institute (FNRI) , as shown in the 2021 Expanded National Nutrition Survey, found that the prevalence of anemia has been steadily decreasing in the Philippines. However, it remains to be a public health concern as it continues to affect 10.4 percent of all Filipinos, especially among high-risk groups such as young children and pregnant women. The most common cause of anemia is iron deficiency.  MAGGI, the trusted ally of homecooks, calls on continued public and private efforts to ensure adequate iron intake, especially among children, to prevent the long-term effects of iron deficiency on Filipinos’ health.

Interventions to address iron deficiency 

The World Health Organization (WHO) believes that deficiencies in micronutrients such as iron can be prevented through comprehensive strategies that focus on micronutrient supplementation, school or community-based feeding programs, nutrition education to promote a balanced diet, and food fortification.  

Under the MAGGI Sarap Sustansya Advocacy, MAGGI has ongoing partnerships with the Department of Education (DepEd) and the Department of Agriculture-Bureau of Plant Industry (DA-BPI) to increase Filipinos’ understanding of a diversified diet, and the importance of including excellent sources of iron such as lean meats, poultry, legumes, and dark leafy greens. Through its recipe services, culinary workshops and engaging school programs such as the Sarap Sustansya Cooking Competition, MAGGI helps youth and families to create tasty dishes based on healthy iron sources to help encourage the consumption of iron-rich food.

Fortification, or the addition of relevant micronutrients to food and beverages, can help improve the nutritional status of people at risk. When relevant nutrients are unavailable or difficult to access, food fortification – whether by the mandatory fortification of staple foods or voluntary fortification of processed foods – can help improve nutrient adequacy. In 2022, Nestlé Philippines helped families get the nutrition they need by delivering 25 bio servings of fortified food. Today, MAGGI has iron in its Magic Sarap brand of all-in-one seasoning.

“Addressing iron deficiency is crucial to promote optimal health outcomes for the Filipino population,” said Rosalyn Simba, Business Executive Officer – Food and Dairy Culinary Business Unit at Nestlé Philippines. “This is why an essential part of the MAGGI Sarap Sustansya advocacy is to help improve Filipinos’ access to iron-rich food through our recipe services, nutrition outreach activities in schools and communities and the fortification of our products.”

The importance of iron in Filipinos’ daily diet

Iron is a mineral and one of the essential micronutrients our body needs, contributing to key functions such as red blood cell formation, releasing energy, cognitive development and boosting the immune system. It is commonly found in animal and plant food, but many people don’t get enough iron in their diet. When the body's iron stores become so low that not enough normal red blood cells can be made to carry oxygen efficiently, a condition known as iron deficiency anemia develops.

If left unchecked, this condition can have severe health consequences and affect the performance of daily tasks. In adults, iron deficiency can cause fatigue, weakness, decreased work productivity, and compromised immune function. Pregnant women with iron deficiency are at a higher risk of complications during pregnancy and childbirth, adversely affecting both maternal and fetal health. Iron deficiency can have a profound impact specifically on children. It can lead to stunted growth, impaired cognitive function, and reduced immune response, making them more susceptible to infections.

According to WHO, anemia, ‘as a public health issue, needs to be addressed from multiple perspectives and through multiple coordinated efforts – each with specific and complementary roles to collectively achieve anemia reduction and improve health and well-being’.  An emphasis on promoting a balanced diet, supplementation when necessary, and fortification of staple foods can enhance iron intake and combat iron deficiency, ensuring optimal health and wellbeing for all Filipinos.

Together, through initiatives like MAGGI's Sarap Sustansya Advocacy, we can overcome iron deficiency and ensure a healthier future for all Filipinos.
