Living homes are those where a person lives in an apartment like setting and arranges for services necessary to accommodate that person’s needs and abilities. Senior retirement homes are those where a person is residing after retirement with the same age group of people independently which include all the necessary facilities like meals, water, gatherings, recreation activities, Housekeeping services, etc.

When a person buys a living home, then he/she is surely living with the families whereas if a person is investing in retirement house, the requirements are different. When we talk about retirement living homes then keep in mind that there is the place, where all residence people are of same age, they socialized with each other, they meet, talk, share their views and create a healthy environment.

Here in this article, we will share the difference between retirement homes and Living homes-


A living home is located close to the heart of the city area so that it can become easily reachable to school, college, office, supermarket, etc. On the same side. A senior retirement home located in a calm and serene environment, where all the find a fresh environment and healthy atmosphere and also easily reach of temples, malls, hospitals, and the transportation.

Security and safety:

The security we can get in a living home is less as we have to make all the securities measures by our own, while when anyone is living in a retirement home, he can get more security and safety. Just because of the security factors many people after their retirements decide to join the retirement home because they provide a 24 x7 x 365 Security and CCTV cameras for their safety.

Activity plaza/ Clubhouse:

When a person lives with family, they also search for an additional place where children can play, set get together, parties and enjoy festivals together. Whereas in the retirement homes people seek clubhouse as hobby clubs, indoor gaming zone, meeting place, cultural and spiritual activities, a place to talk, etc.

Good dining space and kitchen area:

When a person is living with family or in retirement living Communities a meal, lunch, and dinner are treated as a daily festival, people sit together and take at least one meal together that’s why they also find for spacious dining and kitchen area. In senior homes, additional service available is room services in a case when one is sick or not well.

Medical care:

If a person is living with family then in a critical health condition they may visit a doctor with an elder member of a family. But in case of retirement home all the people are aged, and hence they need skilled staff, clinic services, nurse stations, specialized doctors for taking care of them on a daily basis who also help them in emergency conditions

Basic requirement:

The living home may have or not have the 24/7 hours water and electricity, housekeeping facilities but the retirement homes have this must having facilities because an elder person cannot run to find for water or in case if the power is gone then a generator provides a backup especially after sunset. It is necessary because they may also face a problem of eye-sighting. Housekeeping is also needed because they are not able to all of the work of home by alone.

Networking and Diversified Culture: 

A normal living home cannot provide you the atmosphere you can get in a retirement home. It includes the diversified culture, Networking, people who are totally different to you in terms of Gender, Background, and Caste and with whom you can have a great opportunity to learn a lot of things in your life.
