Who Needs Independent Living
Seniors in St. Louis choose to reside with independent retirement communities for the extra free time they get being free of the responsibilities of home ownership. Every senior is different and requires a different level of care. The most active seniors may just need transportation to and from the grocery store or personal appointments, while less active seniors may need assistance with meal preparations a couple times a day or a hand with simple household chores. Health and wellness is an important focus within independent living communities in St. Louis, and most provide a safe and welcoming environment.
