Lifestyle: Many residents felt that they no longer wanted to invest their time and money in maintaining their old homes. Freed
from those bills and chores, they were able to pursue their passions and invest time with the people and causes that matter most to them.

for residents to maintain control and insure their own choices. Many residents shared they felt control and independence through their choice
