Who Needs Independent Living

Independent living is a choice made by many seniors who want an active retirement that doesn't involve mowing the lawn or vacuuming. An independent retirement community allows seniors to shed the responsibilities that come with home ownership, without giving up the privacy and comfort of independent living. Retirement communities have different services and amenities, such as transportation to local stores and attractions or on-site dental and medical facilities that save time and stress so you can live as active as you want. Add to these conveniences 24-hour security, housekeeping services, and prepared meals, and you have a great recipe for carefree, independent living in Bakersfield.

What to Expect

Many of these amenities are offered for your enjoyment in independent living communities in Bakersfield:

  • Pet friendly
  • On-site parking
  • Library/reading room
  • Movie theater
  • Exercise room
  • Pool and hot tub
  • Beauty services

Sometimes independent living communities in Bakersfield are referred to as retirement or senior living communities.
