Housing

There are a large variety of housing options available to older adults. These include 55 and up apartments and mobile home parks, active adult communities, independent and assisted living communities, and assisted living homes. Additionally, some older adults benefit from low-income and subsidized housing options. There are many things to consider when choosing the best place to call home, including cost, location, amenities and services, safety, and comfort. Individuals who qualify for the Arizona Long Term Care System receive financial assistance to help cover the cost of a contracted assisted living facility or nursing home.
