These are typically apartments, or condominiums that are exclusive to seniors of a minimum age. Usually they require that at least one occupant of an apartment be at least 55. They may or may not offer group amenities such as club houses or community rooms, recreation, planned socials or meals. But residents are active, mobile (walkers etc. are usually fine) and interested in peer group interaction and socializing. Residents are usually responsible for their own shopping, cleaning, transportation, meals, and healthcare. Some homes call themselves Senior Apartments or Retirement Communities and require monthly rent. If the complex is a monthly rental costs may start at about $3000 per month. For real estate purchases into condominiums the costs in this area begin around $600,000 and easily reach $1M. These apartments are not licensed by the state nor supervised.
