Independent Elder Facility
Independent elder facilities are commonly referred to as retirement communities.
They are designed for people who no longer work, and are generally restricted to those over a certain age (such as 55+ communities). Such facilities/communities are geared towards independent elders and oftentimes provide extensive amenities for an active lifestyle such as clubhouses, swimming pools, arts and crafts, boating, trails, and golf courses.
Independent elder facilities/communities are typically organized as condominium associations and therefore California condominium law governs such facilities.
