  1. This is some really amazing information about senior independent living. I like that you pointed out that this type of area is good for active seniors. My grandmother is pretty active, and she would love to find more people her age that would want to play tennis with her.

  2. Thanks for the great tips. I like how you suggest that we need to pay attention to physical and medical needs. I will keep that in mind when I help my parents find the right place.
