Senior Apartments

Senior apartments may be ideal for older adults who can care for themselves, but whose homes may have become too burdensome to care for. This housing option allows them to retain their privacy and independence. The main difference between senior apartments and

standard apartments is that senior apartments have an age restriction. This may appeal to older adults who prefer to live among peers. In addition, senior apartments are sometimes equipped with assistive technology, such as hand rails and pull cords.
