What are 55 + Senior Apartments?

Senior apartment communities are tailored to the needs of active adults over age 55. Senior 55 plus communities often feature amenities such as golf, swimming pools, tennis courts, and fitness centers to attract the older adults who want a low maintenance lifestyle.

Senior apartments do not offer the type of personal care services that assisted living communities and memory care facilities provide.
