Independent living

For people who can live independently and have no exceptional medical needs requiring care, there are several options for a maintenance-free lifestyle. The following types of independent living communities are often age-restricted for those 62 or older, but some set the minimum age at 55.

Active adult communities are typically centered around a golf course or other attraction, and residents purchase a house or townhouse. Amenities vary, but often include a club house and fitness center. Available services are limited, and typically don’t include meals, transportation or access to care.

Residential communities are most often age-restricted apartments available on a rental basis. Amenities vary, and services may include one or more daily meals, transportation and housekeeping, usually available à la carte. Access to care is rarely included.
