About Sacramento Independent Living

Thank you for visiting the Sacramento Retirement Homes section of The Eldercare Channel. For many senior citizens, navigating a large home or paying to maintain a family home can be a major burden.  Most seniors today live on a fixed income, and maintaining a home and dealing with changing levels of mobility can make things stressful.  For seniors who are looking to transition out of the family home but who are not in need of assisted living or nursing home care, retirement homes can prove to be the ideal solution.

Retirement homes can be quite varied.  Some come in the form of large communities that are open only to senior citizens, while others may be apartment or condo complexes designed for seniors.  Most are outfitted with things such as hand rails and ramps to accommodate mobility changes, and some even offer amenities such as sports complexes, communal entertainment areas, and more.  Continuing care facilities are also a popular option, and provide housing ranging from independent living to nursing and hospice care so that there is always an option to suit the current needs of the resident.
