Subject Description

Independent Living Options for Older Adults

Residential facilities, apartments and/or planned communities exclusively for older adults that are designed to enable retired individuals or couples and other elderly people to have a form of independent living in a secure environment while sharing common interests and having access to supportive services and a range of activities designed to promote social contact among residents. Support usually consists of "convenience services" which may include an on-site activities program, transportation, housekeeping and meals in a communal dining room. Residents who require additional support need to make their own arrangements for personal care or home health care. These facilities generally require no licensing.
