In general, a retirement community, or active adult community, is a very broad, generic term that covers many varieties of housing for retirees and seniors - especially designed or geared for people who no longer work, or restricted to those over a certain age. The common age is 55 years or older. This is where the 55+ term is derived. An active adult community differs from a retirement home which is a single building or small complex where no "common areas" for socializing exist. Many active adult retirement communities are planned for that purpose, and have special facilities catering to the needs and wants of retirees, including extensive amenities like clubhouses, swimming pools, golf courses, active adult retail and sometimes even on-site medical facilities. Other 55 and over communities may have no or very few common amenities.
