Senior communities, often referred to as retirement communities or senior independent living communities, are facilities that accommodate independent seniors with minor medical issues.

Residents of retirement communities live in a variety of apartment sizes, from studios to large two bedrooms. Most senior communities cater to individual residents, however, more and more communities are adding larger apartments and townhomes for retiring couples.

Many senior communities offer a plethora of activities and amenities, including swimming pools, golf courses, hiking trails, fitness clubs, card games and other social activity planning, physical activities, excursions, dining facilities and other services, and more.
