This week, Indian River Estates, a retirement living community in Florida, celebrated their 20th anniversary of helping active seniors maintain a fulfilling lifestyle, TCPalm.com reports.
The non-profit facility caters to seniors over the age of 62 and offers a variety of services that can benefit those who require assisted living as well as residents capable of independent living.
The estate has been awarded the senior industry's seal of excellence for meeting high standards in finances, administration and resident services, according to the news source.
As the population ages, the need for affordable retirement living communities such as Indian River Estates is likely to grow steadily over the coming years.
A study reported on MedicineNet.com suggests that the majority of assisted living facilities are located in affluent neighborhoods. As aging Americans of all socio-economic levels are equally likely to require some form of care, this disproportionate distribution will likely be re-evaluated.
