Congregate housing

Individual apartments in which residents may receive some services, such as a daily meal with other tenants. Other services might be included, as well. Buildings usually have some common areas, such as a dining room and lounges, as well as additional safety measures such as emergency call buttons. This housing might be rent-subsidized (known as Section 8 housing).
