For seniors considering community life but don’t require constant care, independent living communities can be a great option. They support those who have more active lifestyles and offer the opportunity for social engagement.

What is Independent Living?

Suppose you or a loved one are searching for a community that allows for complete independence with some of the same amenities as senior living facilities. In that case, this could be a perfect choice. Independent living communities traditionally offer a selection of either a studio, one-bedroom, or two-bedroom unfurnished apartment. Additional amenities may include:

Services such as housekeeping, meal plans, transportation, utilities, maintenance, and more are covered. Extra personal care can also typically be purchased on an a la carte basis.

Who is Independent Living Right For?

Independent living communities are usually a good fit for those who can still maintain active lifestyles, whether they have a job, drive a vehicle, or commute regularly.
