In brief: Depend

You would need to clarify about moving into the retirement community.
If there is a facility like springpoint where there is a physician and nursing staff on site then you might want to consider it. Otherwise, some retirement community have private entrance without providing physician/nursing service or have no private entrance with clubhouse providing very limited nursing service. Please check.
