Independent Living - What Is It?

Independent care is ideal for individuals who want to live independently but still want access to assistance when needed. At our community, we offer a communal feel with a variety of high-end amenities to help residents maintain an independent lifestyle. This independent living lifestyle offers residents a safe environment where residents do not have to worry about safety, maintenance, or home ownership.

Why Choose Independent Care?

Unlike other forms of senior care (like assisted living or nursing homes), independent care is not considered long-term. In most cases, the decision to move into an independent care facility has little to do with medical necessity. Instead, independent living attracts couples looking to shed the responsibility of owning a home or individuals who want to socialize more.

There are a variety of types of housing available for independent living, from apartments to large two-bedroom housing. Whether it’s the various senior-friendly activities or the actual design of the building, independent living revolves around providing a better place for seniors to live. In addition to this, our community offers entertainment options and meal plans that our residents can choose from.

Benefits of Independent Living

Older adults who choose independent living often benefit from the following:

  • Decreased risk of social isolation
  • Housekeeping and laundry services provided
  • Gourmet meals provided
  • Exercise classes and other planned activities
  • 24-hour security
  • General assistance with day to day activities

Who are Independent Living Care Facilities For?

Independent living — also called senior living or a retirement community — is designed to simplify day-to-day life for older adults while encouraging them to lead a healthy and active lifestyle. These communities are perfect for anyone 55 years or older who want to leave home ownership/maintenance behind and enjoy the luxuries of the many amenities our community offers.
