Primarily for the younger (usually 55+) and completely independent senior or ‘mature adult’, these communities are commonly built in outskirt area. Usually, there is an ownership component (either full ownership or Life Lease) with a multitude of shared amenities (they often have a clubhouse which houses recreation facilities; there may be a golf course, swimming pool, scheduled activities, etc.) creating a ‘resort-feel’. Residents are buying into a ‘lifestyle’ where they can stay active and meet others with shared interests. Structures can be bungalows, townhomes or apartment-style dwellings. Retirement is not a prerequisite and many residents still work or volunteer and have very active lives. Some newer communities may be part of a complex that has accommodation with care in a different building or services affiliated with them that allow for limited Aging in Place.
