These retirement home innovations range from at-home care services to luxe tropical retreats that will make you wish you were older sooner. Memorable examples from this list include the Armstrong Place Senior Housing complex by David Baker + Partners. The senior residence is located in the heart of San Francisco’s Bayview district and is close to all the amenities the city has to offer like shops, restaurants and other surrounding residences.

In addition to its spacious interior, the residence is fitted with retro design details that are convenient and custom-designed for elderly inhabitants.

Another notable example from this list of retirement home innovations is a South African elderly couple's burglar-proof home that stands on a 20 foot central column. The home is weather-proof and is a safe and secure environment for its residents.
