Luxury Senior Condominium Complexes

Province: CA

Another housing opportunity for independent seniors is essentially a combination of retirement living and condominium ownership. Developers are building independent condominium units (as townhomes or apartment buildings) that are specifically geared toward seniors. Many will have senior-friendly special features such as grab bars in the bathroom, lower light switches and easy-to-turn door handles. Most will have a choice of service packages/amenities included for a set monthly fee. Suites all have full kitchens, but some structures also have meal packages (in on-site restaurants) available to residents. Some are affiliated with, built next door to or on the same property as, retirement residences where amenities can be accessed; most can provide extra care, if necessary, for a fee. While these complexes are geared to the independent senior, they also have the potential for some Aging in Place.
