With an estimated 50 million adults over the age of 65 in the United States, the boomer generation continues to have an outsize impact on American society. According to Pew Research, 10,000 people retire every day. This population increasingly looks to live out their golden years in places that provide a wide range of community activities, events, services, and even governance. These residential developments often face higher demands for effective communications geared toward those who are hard of hearing. The Sun City Lincoln Hills active adult community has embraced high tech solutions to support residents in this capacity.
Sun City Lincoln Hills is a 55-plus population of approximately 11,500 northeast of Sacramento, CA. As a premier location for weddings in the region, the grounds include an outdoor amphitheater overlooking a lake spanning two golf courses. The homeowners are part of a community association that is governed by a membership-elected volunteer board of directors. Under the board, there are several major committees, meeting multiple times each month to oversee a range of ongoing affairs in the community.
