About Retirement Communities with Care

Retirement Communities with CareActive elderly adults age 55 and older, who are retiring often desire to sell their homes and move to a different location. The move may be prompted by the desire to experience new adventures in a resort area, along a lake or ocean shoreline or in the desert southwest. A move may also be prompted by the desire to leave behind home maintenance and yard work and buy into a community where those worries are taken care of by others.

Many elders contemplating a move may not currently need long term care but want the availability of care services should the need arise in the future. Some retirement communities cater to these desires as well.

Finally many older people have difficulty remaining in their present home environment and need to find a living arrangement where they can receive help with activities of daily living such as bathing, dressing, mobility issues, incontinence problems or diminishing memory. These people have a choice of a variety of new living arrangements such as independent living, assisted living, combined care communities or continuing care communities.
