Everyday many older adults face decisions about where to live. Do they want to keep their now empty family home, downgrade into a smaller house, or live in an condominium or apartment? Is it time to move in with a family member where it is easier to take care of one another at the cost of privacy and independence? Many conclude that the optimal solution is to relocate to one of the over 55 communities in Savannah, such as The Marshes of Skidaway Island.

Here are some reasons active adults choose 55+ community home.


The success of over 55 communities in Savannah is largely due to the abundance of diverse activities available to residents. From golf outings to movies in, convenient access to enjoyable events make it easy to stay active and enjoy life. An indoor swimming pool makes year round exercise possible, as does the fully-equipped exercise room and the luxurious ballroom where residents gather for dances.

Sense of Community

Sometimes it is hard to relate to young people. Living and communing with a more mature crowd helps build a sense of community that is often lacking in a traditional apartment setting. The Marshes has many different floor plans to choose from a variety of Apartment Villas, Townhomes, and Cottages.

Family Proximity

For 55+ adults who have family in and around Savannah, moving into a senior living community nearby means being available to see the family often without giving up on privacy or independence.



From gourmet meals to professionally manicured lawns and apartment units designed to accommodate wheelchairs and walkers, with medically train staff nearby, residents are treated with the respect and care one would expect from a resort vacation. Within walking distance of The Marshes, residents have access groceries, a pharmacy, restaurants, and banks. Best of all, gone are all the maintenance needs that accompany home ownership. Community staff take care of the maintenance, leaving residents free to enjoy their golden years worry-free while indulging in hobbies they may never have had time for before.
