Greater Seattle Area 55+ Communities
The idea of 55+ senior living communities is simple: people 55 years or older (usually just one adult needs to be 55 years or older) live in a planned community with a variety of amenities that cater to senior residents. These residents usually live an active and healthy lifestyle so the amenities are geared toward that, so they tend not to work well for seniors with special medical needs that impair mobility.
Deciding if a 55+ community is right for you is like any other major decision: You’ll need to do research, explore your options, and recognize potential problems. And ultimately, you’ll want to visit the community you are interested in!
