Retirement Apartments Overview

Retirement apartments arse generally for individuals over the age
of sixty five. For married couples,  only one spouse is generally
required to meet the age minimum requirement. Retirement apartments
have the benefit of allowing  couples to live together, where this is
often not possible in nursing home facilities. A retirement apartment
will likely have access to medical care on site.
Those
that live in a retirement apartment may or may not have health issues.
In general, there is a health care facility  on site that allows
residents to access medical care for basic needs, such as checkups.
They will likely have access to medical care for serious illnesses as
well. If there is not a medical care facility on site, the retirement
apartment complex likely provides transportation which allows residents
to get to the doctor.
These types of apartment
complexes generally allow residents to maintain freedom of movement.
Those that can drive can come and go as they please. However, those
that require assistance getting around, are also able to go to the
grocery store and run errands, as communities generally provide a bus
or car service.  
When and if individuals need to
transition from a retirement apartment to a nursing home, there will be
legal and financial issues to deal with. These apartment complexes
generally have a staff that can assist in the transition. They may also
offer legal advice to help residents in state planning.
