Most adult living communities are for those that are 55 years of age and older. While some have strict age requirements that require a percentage of the community to be 55 and older, some just plan their marketing campaign towards those over 55.
Age-restricted communities allow older adults to have an independent and low-maintenance lifestyle. These types of communities are quieter and more slow-paced than bustling neighborhoods. It is important that older adults are clear on the exact age requirements of the community. Some developments may not allow anyone in the house to be under 18 years of age, so if you are an older adult with younger children or grandchildren that live with you, this can cause problems.
