Active 55+ communities are apartment and resort-style senior housing communities specifically designed for older adults seeking independent living without the hassle of home upkeep. These housing options allow residents to enjoy the benefits of luxury community living without worrying about the maintenance, costs, and chores associated with homeownership. There are a multitude of benefits to seniors interested in 55+ housing and for those who may need care in the future, and Pacifica Senior Living is the perfect option.

These communities feature single-family homes or newly renovated private apartments at affordable prices, helping seniors reduce living costs without decreasing their quality of life. These housing options are situated in prime locations near shopping centers, bustling neighborhoods, art districts, and beautiful landscapes to allow for the optimal living experience.

55+ residents tend to be active, sociable members of their community, and they love being able to get out and about in their neighborhood with friends and family. Pacifica Senior Living Calaroga Terrace, for example, is a gorgeous community in the heart of the Lloyd District of Portland, Oregon. It is an ideal location for low-maintenance housing for those still wanting to enjoy an active, social lifestyle in a highly desirable location. 


The Meridian at Laguna Hills is a beautiful, bright community in the heart of Laguna Hills, California, one of the most sought after areas in southern California.

Active adult communities provide affordable, low maintenance options for those looking to live among peers.
