FLORIDA SENIOR LIVING COMMUNITIES WIKI INFO:

 

Independent senior living communities, also known as retirement communities, senior living communities or independent retirement communities, are housing designed for seniors 55 and older.

Independent senior living communities commonly provide apartments, but some also offer cottages, condominiums, and single-family homes.

Residents are seniors who do not require assistance with daily activities or 24/7 skilled nursing but may benefit from convenient services, senior-friendly surroundings, and increased social opportunities that independent senior living communities offer.[1]

Independent senior living communities are also popular among snowbird seniors who wish to downsize or travel freely without the burden of managing a home.

Many retirement communities offer dining services, basic housekeeping and laundry services, transportation to appointments and errands, activities, social programs, and access to exercise equipment. Some also offer emergency alert systems, live-in managers, and amenities like pools, spas, clubhouses, and on-site beauty and barber salons.

Independent senior living properties do not provide health care or assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs) such as medication, bathing, eating, dressing, toileting and more.[2] 

Independent senior living differs from continuing care communities, which offer independent living along with multiple other levels of care, such as assisted living and skilled nursing, in one single residence.[3]

Independent senior living residents are permitted to use third-party home health care services to meet additional needs.

An age-restricted community is a housing area, often gated, that typically limits 80% of the residency to individuals who are over a set age. Often the minimum age for at least one of the residents is 50 years, but it could be 55 or even 60.

These communities are set up to accommodate older individuals who would like to live in an area without the perceived problems of having children around.[1] In most cases a younger spouse or significant other is permitted to live in the community as long as one member meets the minimum age requirement.[2]

Age-qualified communities, also known as 55+ communities, active adult communities, lifestyle communities or retirement communities, are often planned communities that offer homes and community features that are attractive to 55+ adults.

These might include a clubhouse or lifestyle center with a good many activities, sometimes with indoor and outdoor swimming pools, exercise facilities, craft rooms, demonstration kitchens, Wall St. rooms, decks and patios for gathering.[3]

 

While in the United States discrimination in housing is generally prohibited, the Fair Housing Act of 1968[7] and the Housing for Older Persons Act of 1995 (109 STAT. 787)[8] allow communities to restrict residency to older individuals.

Individuals may buy into these properties regardless of age, however, the owner may be prohibited from occupying the property according to the association declarations and bylaws.
