Congregate Housing

Congregate housing is multi-unit housing that offers support services to older adults who want to live among others. Each resident has a private bedroom or apartment, and shared living space and activities. The services offered  help residents remain independent. These may include meals, transportation, housekeeping, building security, and social activities.

Congregate housing arrangements and support services vary among facilities. While some services are included in the monthly rent, others are extra. Although medical care is not provided, home health services can often be arranged.
