Browse for active adult apartments and retirement or independent living communities with amenities such as transportation, dining, easy-access to health care, and activities to fit your active lifestyle. Before you get started, what is an active adult community and what does it include? These adult lifestyle communities normally only allow residents aged 55 years or older, and have real estate developments offering relatively maintenance-free living with many amenities such as easy access to natural and cultural attractions as well as an assortment of social clubs catering to specific interests, swimming pools, trails for hiking and biking, exercise centers, and nearby medical facilities. In the second tab, you'll also find an extensive list of Retirement Communities, or what we like to call "Independent Living Communities". These are typically campus-like communities and housing with many activities and amenities such as meals, transportation and light housekeeping, which are generally included in the rent for that month. Independent Living Communities are designed for older adults who can generally care for themselves.
