Age-restricted communities, also known as retirement communities or active adult communities, are groups of homes age-restricted to older adults. These developments may be single-family or detached homes, manufactured homes, apartments or condominiums. They are typically privately owned and residents may buy or rent.
These communities are intended for older adults who are in reasonably good health and do not provide support services. If needed, however, residents can access in-home services and supports. See the in-home section for more information.
