Understanding Retirement Community
Retirement villages are generally communities which are set up as a residence strictly for those above a certain age. For example, some retirement communities will not allow anyone under the age of fifty five, while other require that individuals be at least sixty five. For married couples, restrictions generally only require that one spouse meet the minimum age requirements.
Retirement communities may have many regulations which residents must adhere to. For example, residents may only be allowed a certain number or pets. Residents may not be allowed to have extended visits, especially form those under eighteen. Residents may also be unable to perform certain types of work on their property, such as mechanical work on cars. These regulations are generally  in place in order to keep retirement communities quiet.
Retirement communities also generally have a club house which can be utilized by all residents. The club house may have a gym, a library and other recreational activities available. The club house will likely hold social functions for members of the retirement community, such as dances and dinners. 
There are various types of retirement villages. In some case, individuals come and go as they please because they do not need assistance. However, there are also retirement villages which include nursing care or assistance for those that can drive or run errands on their own.
