Senior Housing

Adult Foster Care

Programs provide room and board and experienced personal care services in a residential setting for elders who have sufficient functional impairment to require supervised living.
Congregate Housing

Non-institutional residences integrate a shared living environment with supportive services for residents, thereby offering an alternative to nursing home placement for persons who have experienced some functional impairment but do not require constant supervision.
Subsidized Housing

Eligibility requirements vary but are primarily based on income, rent is generally 30% of monthly income and usually includes utilities. Contact housing authorities or private subsidized housing providers for more information.
Retirement Communities

Retirement communities provide both shelter and supportive services to elders, promote independence and social interaction. Services are provided or coordinated that will lessen the burden of home upkeep and maintain optimal health.
Independent Living

Similar to any apartment, condominium, or single-family development, except that they provide special services. Many provide a full range of activities that promote social contact among residents.
Assisted Living

Provided in a variety of settings, including free-standing facilities, facilities close to or integrated with skilled nursing facilities, components of continuing care retirement or independent housing complexes. Most consist of single or semi-private rooms.
