Who Needs Independent Living
There are many questions you may ask yourself when considering a change of residence and one of those many questions you may be asking yourself is whether or not you need to make an independent retirement community your home. The answer really comes down to whether or not you'd like to get rid of the stress of a home upkeep. If the answer is yes, then independent living is the right choice for you. As an individual or as a couple, you can get the care and assistance you need in independent living. From regular housekeeping assistance to more involved personal care (upon request), you can benefit from all of the different options that independent living can offer you. Plus, as your assistance and care needs change, your independent retirement community can work to better accommodate you.

Activities for Seniors in Minneapolis
Minneapolis is a large and bustling community full of a wide variety of activities and opportunities for adventure. Some of the best activities for seniors in Minneapolis are:
Parks and Lakes - Minneapolis is known as the ""City of Lakes"" for a reason. Situated along both banks of the Mississippi River and full of lakes, Minneapolis is a city that loved the water. Get out and explore the parks along the riverbank or one of the many lakes like the Lake of the Isles or Lake Harriet so you can see all of the splendor that Minnesota has to offer. You can even get out and go fishing or just go boating around the lakes to better take in the scenery and escape the hustle and bustle of city life in the process.
