Welcome to the Retirement Communities and Senior Housing section of our site. It includes listings for Active Adult Communities, Independent Living Communities, Continuing Care Retirement Communities, Assisted Living Communities, Nursing Care facilities and Alzheimer's Care facilities. Its purpose is to assist seniors in locating the best retirement community or facility that will meet their needs and be their home for the next phase of their life. Caregivers and adult children of seniors will find this retirement planning information particularly useful if they have the responsibility for assisting in the relocation process.
