What are Retirement/Independent Living Communities?

Retirement communities or independent living communities cater to seniors who are very independent with few medical problems. Residents live in fully equipped private apartments or homes available in a variety of sizes from studios to multiple bedrooms. Fine dining services are offered with custom-designed meal packages. These communities often organize optional onsite and offsite social activities to encourage active life style among its residents. Cost of housing depends upon the size of unit and how active the community is. This is a great option for seniors who are independent and who prefer to live among other like minded people of their age.
