With so many options available and with so many factors to consider, our goal is to help you find a starting place so you can learn how to choose a retirement community or other senior care community for yourself or for your loved one.

Your first step is to consider the type of community you or your loved one needs: are you choosing a retirement home with independent living, an assisted living facility or memory care services?

Each category of community provides a variety of amenities, activities, and services to help you ease into new surroundings.

The next aspect you should consider when deciding a retirement community or other senior care community is location.
