Independent Living Communities

According to the Retirement Living Information Center, “Age-restricted multi-family rental or ownership (condo) housing with central dining facilities that provide residents, as part of a monthly fee, meals and other services such as housekeeping, linen service, transportation, and social and recreational activities. The buildings may be designed with a few more features than non age-restricted housing that increase accessibility, such as wide doors. They sometimes have more common areas for meetings or special events. But the real appeal of the age restriction, most everyone agrees, comes down to noise.”
