As well as on the NAHMA Coronavirus Resources webpage:
Per the CDC: “A retirement community or independent living facility is a residential or housing community that is usually age-restricted (e.g., aged 55 and older) with residents who are partially or fully retired and can generally care for themselves without regular nursing or other routine medical assistance. Communal facilities, community activities, meals, transportation, and socialization opportunities may be provided. Different types of independent housing with support services for older adults include:
- Public housing for low- to-moderate income elderly
- Assisted living homes that do not provide medical services
- Continuing Care Retirement Communities, which include a range of housing options including independent living.”
The CDC guidance provides suggested steps that owners, operators, administrators and site employees can take, as well as steps that residents, volunteers and visitors can take.
