About Connecticut Retirement Homes
Retirement homes are essentially any residence that is designed primarily for seniors to keep living independently as they age, including retirement apartments, board and care homes, and independent living communities. Recently, there has been a rise in the number of continuing care retirement communities as well, places that often offer lavish amenities and a tiered housing options for residents based on their current needs, including single family homes, assisted living, nursing homes, and hospice facilities.
There are many different reasons that seniors tend to move into retirement homes and communities. Some prefer the relative peace and quiet of a close-knit community of their peers, while others are drawn to the security of having guaranteed housing at every stage of life. Still others are drawn to the often vibrant social scene and activities that are found in a retirement community.
