According to the 2021 American Community Survey, nearly 55.9 million Americans are 65 and older. With such a large senior population, providing high-quality resources is important to help older adults maintain their health and well-being. Retirement communities put these resources in one convenient place, offering differing levels of care, services, and amenities and promoting an active lifestyle through fitness and wellness programs. This gives seniors and their loved ones extra peace of mind.

Bel Air Assisted Living offers numerous advantages for seniors and their families. Here are the top 7 benefits of senior living in our community:
