Retirement Community and Facility Types
Independent Living Communities are designed for seniors who are active, healthy and able to live without assistance. They generally consists of homes, condominiums, town houses, apartments, and/or mobile and motor homes where residents maintain an independent lifestyle. Some communities offer only minimal services such as building and grounds maintenance, and security. The residential units may be rented on a monthly basis or owned as condominiums or cooperatives. Basically they are no different from other residential enclaves except that there is an age restriction (over 55) or an age target.
