Considerations for Retirement Communities and Independent Living Facilities   [open pdf - 1MB]

From the Document: "CDC [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] offers the following considerations for ways in which administrators of retirement communities and independent living facilities can help protect residents, workers, visitors, and communities and slow the spread of COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019]. These considerations are for administrators of retirement communities and independent living facilities that are not healthcare facilities. Learn more about guidance for long-term care facilities (LTCFs) that offer medical services [hyperlink] (e.g., nursing homes, skilled nursing facilities, assisted living facilities, day care programs for older adults). 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: [1] Public housing for low-to-moderate income older adults; [2] Assisted living homes that do not provide medical services; [3] Continuing Care Retirement Communities, which include a range of housing options including independent living."
