choices: retirement living & senior living options and costs

Whether you call it senior living, retirement living, aging in place, or just finding a nice place to live when you get a bit older, where and how to live is a super important question for older adults.

There is a great deal of information on the Internet about the more traditional types of retirement community. But we find our explorers are still seeking clearer comparative information about what is out there, and how to choose between different retirement living options.
