Complete guide to independent living

Stamford, Connecticut

Independent Living

Independent Living Communities provide individuals with a balance between an opportunity to live an independent lifestyle and not having to concern themselves with chores. Basic chores such as meal preparation and housekeeping are handled by staff and a calendar of recreational and leisure activities is provided, allowing residents an opportunity to use their time as they wish, free from daily obligations.

Typically consisting of a private living area and a full kitchen, these communities offer homes with many of the amenities of apartment life but without the hassle. Guests can be invited over and entertained, and there will be more time to spend with them with the basic maintenance of daily chores out of the way. While policies vary between communities, a number of residences allow pets as well. Nursing and health care services may always be arranged for with private care providers as desired.
