Why do they put senior citizens in "high risers"


In most major cities in America the elderly are housed in multilevel units, sometimes reaching as high as 15 stories or higher. My question is, shouldn't they stay as low to the ground as possible, due to diminishing ability to navigate stairs, in case of a blackout or fire?
