Who Needs Independent Living


Independent living is for seniors who want a lifestyle that removes the hassles and adds to what's important. If you feel lonely, seek easier access to amenities, or are overwhelmed with home maintenance, independent living is a good option for you. While here, you are provided with the chance to learn new skills and take on new challenges every day ensuring an active life.

What to Expect


Living in an independent facility means that residents can look forward to enjoying a vibrant, stimulating atmosphere where they can remain active, pursue their interests, and share the companionship of family, friends, and neighbors. Seniors are more active than when they were living alone. Most independent living communities offer services that will ensure you have a rewarding lifestyle. These include:

  • Concierge services
  • Scheduled meals
  • Scheduled transportation for local events, errands and appointments
  • Housekeeping and linen services
  • Senior wellness programs
  • Security surveillance
  • Pet-friendly environment
  • In-home care when needed
