People are living longer, and seniors want more choices for living active, fulfilling lives. Abundant opportunities for stimulating educational and social programs are available, along with a wide variety of in-home, independent and assisted living options. The increase in in-home care providers and ways to increase accessibility and mobility enables seniors to stay in their homes longer if they choose. Many retirement communities are offering a continuum of care so that residents can receive the level of care they need as they age.
