What is Independent Living?

Independent living is age restricted housing for independent seniors who don’t need assistance, with an array of amenities, dining options, and recreational activities to keep your loved one and their lifestyle intact.

Independent Living Communities are sometimes also called Retirement Communities. These types of senior care are most noted for their “apartment style” settings with limited assistance, and only when it is needed. Most Independent Living communities have a shared dining room where most of the residents go for all their meals.

Depending on the community and state regulations, there may or may not be limited care services available for the residents. In some communities, residents are allowed to hire private caregiving services if they have a need for hands-on care. Overall, this apartment style setting is more for active seniors who may benefit from increased socialization.
