Caring.com offers a national database of senior independent and assisted living apartments, which includes photos, reviews by residents and family members, lists of amenities, and cost information, states AARP. Visitors to the Caring.com website can read articles related to finding the right apartments and what to expect during a senior housing search, conduct searches by location or type of facility, and receive individualized help from advisers, according to Caring.com.

People looking for apartments for low-income seniors can search for subsidized private apartments or public housing, or find apartments on their own and use HUD housing choice vouchers to pay all or part of the rent, according to HUD.
