Retirement Options

Local communities offer all the comforts of modern living to stay active, social and healthy.

From the December 2012 issue of Columbus CEO
  • Adam Squier
Cafés and salons. Cinemas and English-style pubs. Fitness centers and Wi-Fi. These are just a few of the modern amenities offered at local senior living communities. Whatever lifestyle you’re seeking with your next move, Columbus C.E.O.’s list of more than 50 retirement communities is a handy guide. Each facility has provided the essential details you’ll need to make the right decision for you or a family member.

Residents seeking independence can choose from a variety of facilities featuring private apartments with gardens, walking paths and fishing ponds. If you’re a fitness buff or a social butterfly, look closely at the amenities listed for each facility and find the right combination for you. If your physical needs require specialized medical attention, compare the professional staff at each facility. From on-site doctors and nurses to physical therapists, podiatrists, optometrists and memory care providers, there are a variety of choices at the full range of care levels.

Take some time to consider your needs and wants when choosing a facility. One thing’s certain: These aren’t your grandma’s retirement homes.
