All senior citizens eventually end up retired or only working part-time. The truth is, however, that we often become bored and dormant once our dream of retirement becomes a reality. From Dallas to Fort Worth to Arlington, this top 5 most populated metro area has multiple city centers, each littered with endless activities and entertainment for people of all ages, but especially for seniors looking to stay active and young during their golden years.

Watching the Cowboys play at AT&T Stadium isn't the only thing to do for senior citizens living Dallas, Texas.

On the professional side, there is always a team to root for in the Dallas Cowboys (football), Texas Rangers (baseball), Dallas Stars (hockey), FC Dallas (soccer), and Dallas Mavericks (basketball). If you are a lover of college-ball, get lost in NCAA madness by following multiple teams including the Southern Methodist University Mustangs, Texas Christian University Horned Frogs, or even drive an hour south to see the Baylor Bears play in Waco.

Like most major US cities, Dallas is also quickly becoming a leader in geriatric healthcare. Seniors tend to have more health complications and disease specific illnesses than other age group. The Greater Dallas Alzheimer's Association, The American Cancer Society Resource Center, and The American Heart Association Dallas Chapter, are just several of the many wonderful associations whose work directly improves the lives of thousands of aging adult every year. Additionally, if you or loved one requires increased care then you should feel blessed to live in North Central Texas. There are over 30 hospitals in the metro area, including Baylor UT Medical Center, UT Southwestern Medical Center, and Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Fort Worth.

One of the most challenging aspects of senior care can also be one of the most beautiful. To clarify, it often can be detrimental to both the senior and their family to learn that home health, skilled nursing, assisted living, or even hospice care is required. Upon finding the right care provider, not only is the stress and burden of caregiving alleviated, often preventing caregiver burnout before it occures, but evenmore, the senior has the potential to fully recover their most optimum state of health.
