Daily needs such as the scheduling of social activities and housekeeping are taken care of, allowing residents more free time to live their lives as they desire. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to be among peers, surrounded by others of similar ages and interests.

While policies differ between locations, numerous residences allow pets as well. Nursing and health care services may always be arranged for with independent care providers if desired.
