It would be helpful to post your budget, and whether you are looking to rent or buy.

The obvious suggestion is Leisure World, where there are condos and SFH's for sale. It offers numerous amenities, but the HOA or condo fees are correspondingly high. For example, a 2-br apartment in a high rise costs around $200K, but the fees are about $600/month, the last I checked.

Another convenient option are the high-rises on the 1100 block of University Blvd West. They are priced in the low $100K range for the 1-bedroom models.

There is limited subsidized housing, but I think you have to get on a waiting list.

I'm looking for senior citizen places that are moderately priced (up to but not more than 1100 per month). I am interested in Silver Spring because it is a metro ride away from D.C.,twenty miles from my friends in Baltimore and approx. 30 miles from family in Virginia.looking to rent only.

The options in that price range are very limited, and none of them are explicitly age-restricted. You could try looking at the older places near downtown Silver Spring using Apartmentguide.com or Realtor.com.

You could also look at Laurel, where you can get to DC on the MARC train. The price will be less than in Silver Spring, and you could also visit Baltimore by the MARC train.

Try this place, as it is one of the few age-restricted, low-income places: Apartments in Silver Spring For Rent | Oaks at Four Corners

There are a few others listed here, but you need to select the ones in your price range: https://www.after55.com/senior-housi.../silver-spring Specifically, look at the Bonifant, where the rent starts at $990.

Thank you! Have already looked a the Bonifant, which is already my first choice because of its location, but I will look closely at Laurel. I am so grateful for the help. God bless.

Having lived in both Laurel and SS I think you have found your new home at The Bonifant, I can't believe you can live in downtown Silver Spring for a grand. It is walking distance to the Metro and much more accessible to DC than Laurel. The "new Silver Spring" is pretty awesome with lots of restaurants and things to do. I would recommend that for you for sure.

Regarding The Bonifant - I understand many of the apartments are income-restricted. Do you know what the rents are for those who don't meet the income qualifications?
