1 - Where are you located?
Start by searching in the area you want to live. Find a community based in a city, state or region on the map.
Retirement communities, also known as 55+ communities or active adult communities, offer an ideal solution for adults who are ready to relieve themselves of the stresses of home maintenance and desire to live in a community of their peers but do not need any regular personal care or medical assistance. Retirement communities each have their own feel and may be composed of apartments or condos, townhomes, single-family homes, or a mix of all of the above. Some offer amenities like a swimming pool, tennis courts, golf courses and community clubhouses. 55+ communities are the best option of all types of senior living for older adults who are still active and independent and offer a low-maintenance lifestyle and the opportunity to be surrounded by people in a similar stage of life.
