Types Of Retirement Homes

Senior living comes in two main types of independent living and assisted living.Most of you will already understand what these mean but for those that don’t here is a quick explanation.  Independent living is in a 50’s or 60’s type estate where you have your own home in a gated community with shared facilities and activities. Assisted living is meant for those senior citizens who need help and have an on site nurse and support for medical, domestic and personal needs.

What’s the real cost of retirement homes?

If you are planning to purchase a retirement home you will end up spending more than what you spend on a normal house.  For instance, in Pune retirement homes are sold at a 40% premium as compared to the residential homes in the same suburb. 

A retirement project costs approximately $86-$93 per sq. ft whereas a residential project in the same costs $66 per sq. ft.   Another such example is Tata Housing Development Co. Ltd’s township in Bangalore where retirement homes cost Rs 3950 per sq.ft as compared to residential homes that cost Rs 3400 per sq.ft.

Mumbai is not the normally selected place to retire for those wanting to slow down but if you are a big city person this might be an option for you.  My last few trips to Mumbai they are starting to take pride in their city and it has been cleaned up a lot.  

You should expect all the noise, hustle and bustle of a big city as well as everything else that goes with it.  There is a pollution problem in all large cities in India just like in most other cities of its size.  The upside is absolutely everything at your fingertips and everything can be delivered.
