Local Area Information

Many towns and villages offer senior living housing, such as age-restricted and retirement communities, for their residents who are 55 and better. There are about 88 active adult communities in Suffolk County alone. Two of these are marketed to ages 62 and above, and the rest require a lower minimum age of 55.

Single-family homes, condos and townhomes, mostly one-level structures with no stairs that many 55 and over prefer, are typically the options offered in these Suffolk County 55+ communities. The bustling property market offers a varied range of options, including 2-bedroom condos, 3-bedroom condos, homes with a garage and condos with a basement.

While many of the subdivisions feature cozy homes, priced reasonably, in well-maintained areas and offer only the basic amenities, some are sprawling complexes with grander two-bedroom homes in a country club setting and offer resort-style living. Out of these adult housing developments, about 42 offer the privacy and added security of a gated community, and about 65 have clubhouses for the recreational and leisure activities of their residents.
