Independent Living and Retirement Communities

Find the best retirement communities near you

What is independent living?

Independent living facilities, also called retirement communities, provide a carefree lifestyle for seniors who want to enjoy retirement without the responsibilities of home ownership. Independent living offers dining options, housekeeping, social activities, and more.

Why choose independent living?

Companionship, social activities, delicious meals, and a safe community environment are just a few of the reasons seniors choose independent living. Many retirement communities also offer senior-friendly features, like walk-in showers, well-lit hallways, and emergency alert systems.

What does independent living cost?

Independent living costs vary depending on location, community amenities, and apartment size and features. Many of the services offered at independent living facilities, such as meals, laundry, and housekeeping are optional. This means you can decide what’s important to you.

How do you choose an independent living facility?

Independent living communities come in all shapes and sizes to fit seniors’ tastes and budget — from large communities with resort-like amenities to smaller retirement homes. An in-person or virtual tour provides opportunities to ask questions and get a sense of the community.
