Units for senior living in San Diego can be easy to find. People can look for these on the net and screen by price, location or features. People will find both basic units as well as properties in the luxury category. Many properties will be ones that are in between the two extremes.

The introvert and the extrovert
Some seniors like to live fairly quite lives. They may enjoy hobbies and solo activities, family and friends or outings that they choose to share with a partner or friend. These seniors often want a place that is nice but do not need a lot of different amenities.

There are also lively extroverts that thrive on human contact. This group may be interested in a property that has an active social calendar. Many places are offering a calendar of events on the website that gets updated often. This can guide people as to when parties, events and clubs meet at the complex.

Floor plans
There can be specific features in a floor plan that makes one unit a better option than another. People can find units here that have modern floor PepperTree_2plans like open concept styles. These often have the edge over galley units in terms of storage space and counter space. Some of these may have kitchen pantries.

Another thing to look for is a bedroom that has a large closet. Many units in this area have walk-in style closets that can hold other items besides just clothing. Units that have more than one bedroom will often have an en suite master bath. This usually has more upscale features than other baths in the unit such as dual sinks in the vanity, and a separate shower stall and tub. The newest units also place the toilet in a small room by itself.

One feature that many seniors like to find is a balcony or patio. Many like to have one that is large enough for four chairs and a table as this can be a great place to dine or play cards with friends. Seniors also use this space to house a BBQ or possibly a small garden with tomato plants and herbs.

Furry friends
Many seniors have pets and there is no reason why pets can’t live in apartments much of the time. Some complexes will limit the size or breed of dogs and there are often other things like pet security deposits to consider.
