About NORC

A naturally occurring retirement community (NORC) is a community with a growing population of older adults living in homes not originally intended for older adults.

Our home consists of two spacious, well-maintained condominium buildings built in the 1980s. Over the years they have evolved into the very definition of a NORC.
