A few Types of Senior Living Options

55+ Community Lifestyles, Services and Amenities

55 community homes are often designed with the needs of aging residents. Both the home and the community are designed with accessibility and safety in mind. Homes in 55+ communities tend to be smaller, single-level detached houses or multifamily houses with one or two bedrooms and one or two bathrooms. Homes also often have accessible bathroom features, and other floor plan features that are more accessible so that seniors can age in place.

Communities tend to be close to shopping centers, restaurants, churches and libraries, as well as recreation areas, and offer safety features such as community gates and security patrol.

Independent Living

As a great option for healthy and active seniors seeking recreational and social opportunities, as well as a low maintenance lifestyle, Independent Living Communities are designed to enable independent seniors to enjoy their golden years with other seniors. Each independent living community offers different amenities and services so you should find research all options.




Continuing Care Retirement Communities

Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRC) are residential campuses that provide a continuum of care---from private units to assisted living and then skilled nursing care, all in one location. CCRCs are designed to offer active seniors an independent lifestyle from the privacy of their own home, but also include the availability of services in an assisted living environment and on-site intermediate or skilled nursing care if necessary.
