55+ or older communities are great for older parents. They're around people their own age, they tend to be planned communities with a central building with things to do. They tend to have contracts with landscapers and housekeepers, and home health care aids nearby if needed.Add on - retirements homes are a no. I don't care what it takes, figure out how to do it without them. If you ever visit and it looks like a bunch of old people waiting to die, you're spot on. You can hire a home care service 4 hours a day to clean, provide company, and make food for far less. But probably your parent should live with one of you.
Would I live in one? Hell no. But maybe when I'm 80.
