Learn More About Independent Living in Melbourne, FL

Beaches, annual arts festivals, wildlife refuges, and golf courses await in the Harbor City. Part of Florida’s famed Space Coast, Melbourne is a sunny coastal town with plenty of history and tropical charm to keep both residents and visitors entertained without having to make the trip to nearby Orlando and Cape Canaveral.

Independent living communities — also known simply as retirement communities — in Melbourne are geared towards seniors who are able to live on their own, without daily assistance, and prefer to live among people their age. This usually means residents are self-sufficient and do not require hands-on care. Think of Melbourne retirement communities as age-restricted (typically 55+) complexes, which provide organized activities, meal services, and transportation.
