Adult lifestyle refers to a community for older adults. The "lifestyle" aspect refers to the ability to enjoy retirement with social and recreational activities available. In many communities, these amenities are for the use of the community, in others, the community may be located on or close to golf clubs, lake fronts and other such places that provide these recreational opportunities.
Housing choices are many, with some developments offering housing on leased land.
In the United States, many such communities are located in states that have warmer climates and are referred to as continuing care retirement communities. In Canada, a number of providers have developed adult lifestyle communities, although they generally do not offer the ability to receive additional services to allow you to stay there, other than what is available through outside agencies.
Stay tuned as we add more adult lifestyle communities to the Care Guide.
