Being surrounded by your culture is comforting as you age — we desire our most familiar surroundings and culture becomes even more vital as a senior. With the immigration of Indians to America over the past several decades, it follows that the first Indian American retirement community is thriving — and the reason why more cultural specific senior living communities are on the way.

The idea is a good one. The "advisor" I got was horrible. She did give me a little list of places to contact. But that was the extent of this so-called service. She didn't follow up. I emailed her about one horrible place she sent me, the state of Missouri has this facility under an action plan every single month. I told her about what it was like inside there with those poor people and she didn't even respond!! She sent me what is supposed to be helpful hints about 3 weeks into my own search. What a rip off for the companies who pay for this. I have never heard from this woman since the day I called for help.
