Subject Description

Senior Congregate Living Facilities

Retirement hotels, inns, boarding homes and other similar residential facilities where older adults can live independently on their own, usually in one building, share common areas, social activities and amenities and have most meals in a communal dining area. Most of the residences feature a mix of studio, one and two-bedroom apartment style accommodations, rented on a monthly basis, with interior corridors, elevators, small kitchenettes and emergency intercoms or pull cord systems as a safety feature. Housekeeping, social activities and transportation services may be included and laundry services may be available for an additional fee. Residents pay no entry fees, make no long term financial commitments (other than the usual cleaning and security deposits) and may leave whenever they choose.
