Finding your home in a serene community space that’s close to hospitals and easy accessibility in Bangalore needn’t be very hard. And when every apartment complex is ready to pamper you, you have a a few fine options you can consider!
What aspect would you prioritise and look for the most in a new house?
What should I check for in a senior living property?
Senior housing properties are developed keeping in mind the age, health and activity of seniors. Therefore, you would see friendly architecture and design, such as the use of anti-skid tiles, easy-reach, coloured light switches and night switches, emergency response system, doctor-on-call, concierge services and even readymade food. Depending on the age group and the kind of health, you can choose from the many services that retirement homes now provide the seniors.
Can senior homes be inherited?
Yes, if the property has been bought by an individual, his/her legal heirs can inherit it unless there are restrictions made clear from the beginning or if it is against the will of the buyer.
What is the difference between an old age home and retirement home?
Senior living, unlike the old age homes, cater to those that have the means to spend on their lifestyle and are looking forward to an easy and comfortable retirement life. They can pick and choose services and pay for these services. An old age home is usually a state-run or charity or even an NGO-run place and the quality of services are not of the same standard as a retirement living homes developed by private builders.
