The Circle of Life - Physical Development

How does the Armed Forces Retirement Homes cater to your Physical Development?

Looking for a place that has plenty to do physically? All throughout life we are told that physical exercise is necessary to maintain a healthy, happy, balanced life.

But let’s be honest, the older we get the less we focus on our physical development and it begins to take a toll on us. As we get older our bones, flexibility and muscles ain’t what they used to be.

But that doesn’t mean we can’t get some of that mobility back if we put our mind to it and put our butt in motion.

Whether you are very active and want to continue to stay active…


You are realizing that your health and life depend on you getting physical, both homes offer a plethora of activities for you. 

Day after day we get asked by fellow retired enlisted members who are interested in joining us at the home some of the following questions that pertain to their physical well being. 

Our goal is to show you how the Armed Forces Retirement Homes in DC and Mississippi is the BEST place to hang your hat and call home. By reading on, watching the videos, and viewing our many photos of the residents enjoying life while being physical, we’re positive you’re next step will be to find how how you can be our neighbor.

Who can say they have a bowling alley in their home and a Heated Pool that is just shy of an Olympic Size?

You can proudly say that you do when you become a resident of the Armed Forces Retirement Home in Washington DC or Gulfport, MS.

Of course, the one in Washington DC is inside because it gets a little bit colder up north than it does down south. So our pool down south is sure to give you all the sunshine you want.
