About Retirement Villages and Retirement Communities

Retirement villages are also known as retirement communities and care villages. These are formed of a large group of retirement or sheltered housing schemes for seniors - an increasingly popular concept, but unfortunately lacking any single, clear definition. Essentially anything from an estate to a full blown village-sized retirement development of bungalows, flats or houses, intended for occupation by older people. Often include a number of recreation facilities, and sometimes a care home. These retirement communities for seniors exist in the public, voluntary and private sectors, and are provided by local authorities, housing associations, private companies, charities and trusts, or by a combination of these. Retirement villages were first developed in the US where they are also called a senior village, adult retirement community or retirement living community.
