Retirement Communities Info

Retirement Communities Summary:
A retirement community is a living arrangement designed to accommodate adults age 55 years of age or older who are still able to care for themselves. While each retirement community has its own perks, many of these offer 24-hour staff located within the complex, housekeeping services, and planned activities for residents. The services provided depend on the individual needs, mobility, and health of each person. There are different retirement communities that cater to different groups of retirees and different income levels.

Retirement communities come in many forms that include apartment or condo style living arrangements, stand alone house styles, and even communities composed of single home units. Some are set up like gated communities. There is such a great demand for some facilities that they use a lottery type system to choose residents for available units.

While most retirement communities are designed for seniors with limited health problems that do not interfere with independent daily functioning, most offer onsite staff around the clock to help respond to emergency situations. Some facilities allow the hiring of in-home health care, while others do not. Newer specialty communities will offer moves to higher levels of care as needed by the residents.

Retirement Communities Specialties:


Retirement Communities offer various levels of care to their residents that expand as client needs change. Independent living, assisted living, special care or memory care, and skilled nursing are available in the same campus at many communities. A substantial entrance fee followed by monthly fees based on services are required for these types of retirement communities.

Procedures and Treatments:


While retirement communities do not offer medical services or assisted living, they often provide activities and special facilities, such as tennis courts, golf courses, swimming pools, fitness centers, and more. Planned group activities and exercises may include arts and crafts, continuing education, aerobics, yoga, and others.

Retirement Communities Profession Details:


Retirement communities vary by cost and services offered. However, they are typically designed specifically for seniors. Living spaces may be smaller and maintenance, yard work, and possibly housekeeping, services are provided. Applicants to retirement communities must meet age requirements, be partially or fully retired depending on the specific community, and be able to care for themselves independently and without assistance.

Retirement Communities Associations:


National Active Retirement Association, American Seniors Housing Association, American Association of Retirement Communities.


Retirement Communities FAQs:

Do retirement communities offer medical services?
Typically, retirement communities do not offer medical services on site. However, 24-hour staff can help contact medical personnel in case of an emergency situation. There may also be transportation options to nearby medical care.

Are retirement communities expensive?
The cost of living in a retirement community varies widely depending on the facility, type of housing, and amenities offered. However, there are subsidized senior housing options for low income individuals.

What types of retirement communities are there?
Some of the retirement communities include:

Active adult communities: May provide activities and promote active lifestyle
Continuing care communities: May provide independent, assisted living, or nursing care facilities.
Assisted living communities: Provide supervision and assistance with everyday activities.
Non-institutional communities: May encourage family involvement.
Hospice communities: Provide comfortable facilities for terminally ill seniors.

How does a person choose which retirement community is best suited to them?
The best retirement community facility is one suited to your individual needs. You should determine where you want to live (type of climate, proximately to family members), your current health requirements, your activity level, budget, and what extra services you want included (meals, transportation, security). Then find a retirement community in the city and state that you would like to live.

What are the benefits of a retirement community?
Most retirement communities have open floor plans and easy accessibility for those with limited mobility. Retirement communities are maintenance free; you don' have to cook, clean, or worry about repairs or maintenance to appliances. Retirement communities have age specific activities and many other residents who share the same interests. Safety and security is of high priority to retirement communities.

Who shouldn't consider residing at a retirement community?
Retirees and seniors who require extensive care should not consider a retirement community. Often, these facilities cannot offer the proper level of care.

What is the difference between a retirement community and a nursing home?
A retirement community offers flexible living options for retirees who want to keep their independence but who also want to live maintenance free. A nursing home is for seniors who have serious or chronic health issues that require a great deal of care.

What are some services available at a retirement community?
Extra services include meal service, laundry service, pools and recreational facilities, library, games room, pharmacy and physician services. Public transportation (private buses) is usually offered to drive seniors to local shopping centers, churches, or other places.
