What is Retirement Living?

Filling A Need: Retirement Living is a combination of housing, personalized support services and health care in a non-institutional setting. This concept is designed to respond to the individual needs of seniors who require assistance with certain activities of daily living, but do not need the level of health care provided in a skilled long term care
