Who Needs Independent Living

Independent living communities are a great solution for seniors who want to stay active and vibrant but who do not want to have extra burdens or stress in their life. After all, who wants to spend all of their time worried about home maintenance when they could focus on family and fun? Whether you are an individual or a part of a couple, independent living can benefit you. You will be able to get the help and care you need in a safe and welcoming environment with great neighbors and staff around you. Independent retirement communities are designed to give you the freedom, independence, and privacy you want and need but also helping you by providing maintenance, housekeeping, and even laundry and linen services if you so desire.

What to Expect

Independent living communities have so many amenities offered that it can sometimes be overwhelming. In the Des Moines, Iowa area, many of the independent retirement communities offer the following amenities (among several others):

  • Meal plans
  • Laundry services
  • Transportation services
  • Social activities with neighbors
  • Scheduled outings
  • Housekeeping services
  • Security 24 hours a day
