As others have said it depends on the woman. Apartments can be more social, provide peers in senior communities or a variety of people in general ones. Apartments can have challenges with neighbors who are loud, rules that are inflexible and parking that isn't always easy for the owner or their guests.
Homes can have charm, a yard, more flexibility but also issues with more rooms to furnish & clean. They can be more isolating if you don't have community already and the expenses for utilities can be higher. Having a yard can be great for gardening and enjoying but will require tending.
Here are some questions for you, don't answer them here necessarily but they may lead you to a conclusion. How is your health, energy, social network of friends & family? Are you coming out of a large home and have ton's of stuff with lots of memories you aren't ready to let go of or have you already downsized and don't need much space? Do you want to stay in your current area or are you considering moving into another town? What do those who know you best think would be a good next step for you?
