Designed for adults aged 55 and over, adult lifestyle communities are for people who want to maintain their independent lifestyle, but do not want the responsibility of maintaining their own property anymore. There is no set schedule to follow, and the community is encouraged to develop and grow a unique personality and character.

With the option to opt-in and opt-out of services as needed, residents can choose to make use of amenities and features such as a dinner service, full service home health care, housekeeping, and more. The Wellings adult lifestyle communities, are designed to provide freedom in retirement with à la carte living, fully equipped kitchens in private apartments, and amenities appealing to more active adults over 55.

Retirement residences are for people who require a greater level of everyday care, from independent care to memory care. All meals are provided and health care is not optional. All activities are planned and transportation is provided.
