Listings for Housing / Independent Living


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.

Independent Living

To maintain an independent lifestyle, while also enjoying services and amenities such as housekeeping, transportation, various meal and dining options, social activities, and fitness centers, many older adults choose independent living communities. The base rates provided typically include some or all meals, as well as utilities.
