Who Needs Independent Living
Independent living is for seniors who want to live independently, often due to reasons of convenience and socialization. Seniors who prefer to live among their peers, desire additional security and no longer want to maintain a home should consider a retirement living option. An independent living community can be very a good choice that gives you time to focus on life enrichment activities, travel, family and other tasks that matter.
What to Expect
Residents in independent living 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 for an engaging and fulfilling lifestyle. Seniors have convenient access to exceptional services and amenities so that everyday life can be truly independent. These services 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
