Many types of housing exist in Sun City. Residential choices within Sun City include: single family homes, duplexes, condominiums, independent living centers, assisted living centers, life care communities and apartment complexes.

In fact, helping others protects our overall health two times as much as aspirin protects against heart disease.
Plus, if you volunteer at a place that causes you to be active, you can lose weight and get in shape.
Enhance Your Skills
Retirement isn’t a good reason to stop using the skills you learned while on the job. Volunteering allows you to keep those skills sharp and also teaches you new ones, which helps keep your mind active.
Being a volunteer is also a great way to ensure you stay active in the community and use your people skills.
Sun City has always been “The City of Volunteers”.
